On to the links.
- Nick Castellanos has struggled this year and who would know better than his personal hitting coach ($).

- The team’s local ratings have been very good this season.
- Max Scherzer believes PitchCom should be illegal because it “takes something away from the game.” Yeah, ok buddy.
- A good read about the life of a general manager around this time of year, the trading deadline ($).
