I remember it well. I was 16, right at the start of my senior year of high school, and my friends and I drove down to Veterans Stadium to watch the Phillies play the Reds. It may actually have been the first time I went to a Phillies game unaccompanied by my elders.
Rangers ace Yu Darvish is 30 years old, will be a free agent after this season, and is pitching at the high level he always does when healthy for a team that’s lost more than it’s won, all of which has made him a pretty obvious candidate to get moved before this month’s trade deadline.

The Dallas Cowboys cut third-year wide receiver Lucky Whitehead yesterday after news surfaced that he had missed a July court hearing after being arrested for shoplifting from a Virginia convenience store on June 22. One big problem with that: It wasn’t him that had been arrested.
LeBron James, who is always eager to use social media to swat away unwanted narratives, took aim at two SLAM Magazine tweets this morning. If we’re going to unbox this Russian nesting doll of tweets and aggregation, might as well start with the James tweets themselves. He’s boooooooing in both.

It’s the Dead Zone of the summer sports calendar, and I am on the verge of dying from physiological lack of hot sports action.

Thanks to all those Star Wars movies we know the Jedi can barely survive an attack from just a pair of evil Sith lords. But pit a small battalion of 300 lightsaber-wielding Jedi knights against a giant army of 60,000 medieval soldiers armed with only swords, and it’s not even a challenge.

It’s not really a shock, given that Astros second baseman Jose Altuve finished last season with 6.7 WAR and has been putting up ridiculous statistics for years now, but the little guy is currently your MVP frontrunner.
Giancarlo Stanton was definitely thinking home run. In a rare visit to the Rangers, one of the few ballparks the Marlins slugger hasn’t homered in, Stanton realized this might be his last chance for a while to notch it on his belt. (Well, his last chance for a while unless he becomes a Yankee soon. See below. Gulp.)
Logan Morrison’s daughter, Ily, isn’t even two years old, but she knows the importance of setting priorities. Specifically—prioritizing dancing to your song over anything else, especially over something dumb like running the bases in anything that is not a baseball game.
