On May 30, 2017, in MLB, by Stephen

Bryce Harper undoubtedly is going to draw a suspension for charging the mound after Hunter Strickland intentionally hit him with a pitch Monday. Strickland said he didn’t plunk Harper on purpose. He was just trying to pitch inside. Yeah, right. A major league pitcher doesn’t throw at a spot where it’s impossible for the batter […]

Phillies plus $1.15 hosting Nationals I know the Phillies may be a hard sell having dropped eight of their last nine games, including the past five, while the Nationals have the best record in baseball at 21-9. But this spot sets up well for the home underdog Phillies. The pitching matchup is Jeremy Hellickson versus […]
