I don’t mind the team not winning both ends of the doubleheader. It’s hard to do.

- Seems this umpire had a rather difficult day during the first game of the doubleheader (I missed game one).
- Good interview with Dave Dombrowski about how the team landed Michael Lorenzen at the trade deadline.

- A strange headline for this article about Shohei Ohtani that is pretty easy to answer.
