1. Nationals (3): While the spotlight has been on the highly debated Stephen Strasburg decision, Davey Johnson's lineup came together in late August and rolls toward the first playoff baseball Washington has seen since 1933. Bryce Harper and friends hit...
Talking baseball while congratulating the Louisville Cardinals for winning one for their horribly injured teammate, Kevin Ware. 1. Growing up in Puerto Rico, Alex Rios idolized Juan Gonzalez. If the White Sox are going to contend this season, they need...
