Prof:  It’s just me, and I am so tired (long night last night, and really long day today). So there aren’t your usual wrap ups, sorry. But here’s the scores and as always the comments are open!

  1. Strasburg pitched a gem yesterday, complete game shutout that was almost a Maddux; he was at 87 pitches entering the 9th, but the Feesh made him work a bit in the 9th and he finished with 110 pitches. Total ownership, other than J.T. Realmuto, who came up a home run short of the cycle. Strasburg also helped his own cause with a solo HR and another hit, and the Nats’ division lead is now at 15 games, and their magic number is 16.

    Dusty announced pre-game that he’s looking to go to a six-man rotation in September, at least for a while, and it’s starting this weekend in Milwaukee, so hopefully the rotation will enter October fresh.

    Bryce Harper announced yesterday that he’s not close to returning, and that in addition to his knee still being sore, he strained his calf when he had his yard sale at first base, and he’s got that going on, too. Not a lot of time to get him back and ready before the NLDS, so we’ll have that to worry about all month…

  2. In addition to pitching 6 innings with 9 K’s in the Tigers win, Verlander also helped his own cause yesterday with an RBI single. He moves into a 93 way tie for 863rd place on the Tigers all time RBI list, just 1804 behind Ty Cobb.

  3. I have to say that Cleveland’s 7 game lead with 31 left to play is pretty close to a lock. On the other hand the Twins are just one game behind the currently beatable Borg whom they play in mid September. The play a few against Cleveland while the rest are against their sub 500 AL Central brethren. Watching Colon today having so far gone 6 while allowing 3 I think the 3 days out of 5 starting pitching poo poo is down to 2, and even those are not always poo poo. I put the Twins chances of getting one of the two wild cards at about 60%. If they get past the wild card playoff game (coin flip), they won’t be a push over in a play off series.

    A whisper which could get louder, 1987.
