There are (at least) two things wrong with Maddon’s opinion.

It was all precipitated by one play that happened several years ago that to me was just bad technique on the part of the catcher, so that’s where I get really flustered by this conversation, because to me it should not even exist.

These quotes were designed in a lab to make me itch. There are (at least) two things wrong with Maddon’s opinion.

First, it isn’t the damned Buster Posey Rule. That is not how it happened. That’s not how the rule changed.

I didn’t know a lot before. Now I’m really screwed.

One of you messed with the settings in the menu screen, and I’m begging you to change it back.

The best way to explain what I mean is that I’m writing about surprising hitters, but I’m not going to include Aaron Altherr. The Phillies outfielder is hitting .294/.379/.538 with nine homers this season, a year after hitting under the Mendoza Line with a 60 OPS+. He’s not being included because I can explain his success in terms that I’m used to. He’s 26. He developed. He made strides. He’s coming into his own. Happens every year to a few young players. Good for him.

Southern Miss might have reason for worry moving forward, however, as skipper, Scott Berry, burned through five arms on his pitching staff just to stop the bleeding. Starter Kirk McCarty lasted only 4 1/3, and the next four patched together a solid performance in the win.

He walked the next batter to load the bases, then yielded a groundout at second on his 101st pitch. He was done for the night then, with seven innings of work and nine strikeouts.

NHL reveals captains for 2017 All-Star Game

They’re no John Scott, but this year’s group of All-Star Game captains includes plenty of star power.

Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby, Montreal’s Carey Price, Edmonton’s Connor McDavid and Nashville’s P.K. Subban were voted by fans to helm their respective divisions during the NHL’s 3-on-3 tournament later this month in Los Angeles.

This is an historic moment for the National Hockey League, commissioner Gary Bettman said. The 2017 NHL China Games presented by O.R.G. Packaging represent the formal launch of what we hope will be a long and successful collaboration between our league, our teams and our partners in accelerating the development of hockey in China.

We look forward to our first games in China and to a variety of initiatives that will inspire generations of Chinese players and fans to enjoy our sport. We recognize the importance of helping China build a strong national hockey program and are committed to supporting that priority in every way possible.

The teams are scheduled to face off Sept. 21 at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai and Sept. 23 at the Huaxi LIVE Wukesong’s Le Sports Center in Beijing. Both Los Angeles and Vancouver have previously held youth hockey camps in China, though the exhibition meetings will be the first games to be played.

Meanwhile, the NHL has yet to be confirmed for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.
