Pastner said K. Johnson weighs 230, needs to be down to 212. Which means I'm not the only one who should lose 18 pounds.

That's a wrap in West Long Branch after 79 offensive snaps. That's also a wrap for training camp. Countdown to the opener is at nine days

That's it, that's that. Brandon McCarthy with the complete-game shutout, 3-0, over the #Astros. That game was QUICK.

Eli Savoie

Did he mean he wanted a fresh start with a scholarship?

Eli Savoie

In original Woodson transfer story Pastner said "he shared with me he'd like a fresh start." What happened to that?

Howard Chen

Keuchel himself didn't need 100 pitches to get through 8. If the #Astros don't come back in the 9th, that's his 5th complete game of the yr.

So much shade being thrown at SkyMall on FXX during every commercial break.

Also: 49ers believe trading a holdout is similar to surrendering to the tactics. They might do it, but want a huge price if they do.

Oswaldo Arcia bails out his #MNTwins outfield mate with an assist to end sixth inning. Jordan Schafer's error kept it alive a play before.

#Astros have a situation brewing in the 7th. Runners on 2nd & 3rd, 1 out, down 3-0. Opportunity knocking.
