Talking baseball while wondering how many PGA Tour players will sneak into town to look at Conway Farms this week:
1. Where did the playoff race drama go? If anyone knows where we can find a time machine, we could turn this into one of the greatest...

The Rangers reportedly have claimed Alex Rios on waivers, and if it was my decision they would have him on their roster at some point this weekend.
Because these are revocable waivers, the White Sox can hang on to Rios if they don't get an offer for him...

Can anybody out there hit?

BOSTON — Maybe it was the 90-degree heat, and we're not only talking about Hiroki Kuroda's fastball here. Maybe we can blame some of this stuff on the final day of an oppressive heat wave.

BOSTON — Brent Lillibridge, 29 and looking, oh, 19, shook his head in the cramped visiting Fenway clubhouse and smiled at the uncertainty of baseball.
"It's a crazy business," Lillibridge said.

It's time to step to the plate, Rick Hahn. Batter up.
Trade early, trade often, trade (just about) anyone. About the only way you could upset your fan base is by doing nothing.
