  • ESPN's Wright Thompson took an in-depth look at GM Theo Epstein and the inner drive he has to bring a championship to the Cubs.
  • While Jean Segura is enjoying the best season of his career for the Diamondbacks, the player the Brewers received in the offseason swap, Chase Anderson, has had a much improved second half after a rough beginning. He attributes most of this recent success to abandoning his cut fastball.
  • After acquiring Ivan Nova from the Yankees at this year's trade deadline, the Pirates are looking to lock him up long-term, as they've made two different offers to his representatives.
  • Still in the thick of the postseason hunt with a wild card spot available, the Cardinals may be getting Matt Holliday back from injury before it's too late.
  • FiveThirtyEight detailed how the Cincinnati pitching staff may go down as the worst of all time.
