MARLINS NEWS

Stephen Strasburg led the way to victory with his arm and his bat yesterday, completing a sweep of the Marlins, despite strong efforts from J.T. Realmuto and Adam Conley.

Glenn Geffner is a regular on Twitter and shared some neat facts about Giancarlo Stanton’s season to remember.

Here’s a nice blog post with some personal insight about Marcell Ozuna from the Miami Herald.

The most exciting news of the day was the announcement of Dillon Peters being called up and expected to pitch against Philadelphia on Friday night.

MLB HEADLINES

The Cardinals and Mariners made a deal yesterday, sending Mike Leake to Seattle for a minor leaguer in what seemed to be a salary dump for St. Louis. Former teammate, Lance Lynn doesn’t seem pleased.

Are the Giants making a Christmas wish list? Reports during the last two days have reported their interest in Giancarlo Stanton, as well as Justin Upton.

Rafael Montero made the Mets game interesting last night.

Sadly, the careers of Albert Pujols and Alex Gordon seem to be nearing the end.

Tragedy is far from over in Houston, and Doug Brocail is, understandably, torn about showing up at the ballpark when he could be making a difference.
