Although they drew six walks, the Washington Nationals (57-47) could not manage a run against the Miami Marlins (53-53), who only needed one run against Stephen Strasburg and eventually won 3-0. Strasburg (L, 7-9), who was much maligned before tonight for his 5.06 road ERA in 2014, silenced the critics with a great outing. He went seven innings, in which he gave up just one run on...

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Jul 29

Stephen Strasburg, Cole Hamels, and James Shields tower above the rest of Tuesday’s starters with their respective starts against the Marlins, Mets, and Twins. They’re not the day’s only reliable options as a deep day of pitching gives fantasy owners a lot of security (well, as much as you can have I guess). Jorge De La Rosa checks in at 4th with a start against the Cubs that...

Stephen Strasburg on Orioles fans at Nationals Park: "Maybe someday it'll be different."

Somewhere, Peter Angelos is smiling and stacks of Ted Lerner's MASN money. And so, the Orioles beat the Nats 8-2 in 11 innings Monday night in front of what seemed to be an evenly split 35,126 fans until the end, when Nationals Park sounded more like Camden Yards. Lots of competing "Let's go Nats" and "Let's go O's" chants throughout, although...
