Mariners pitcher Cliff Lee may be in midseason form a little too early

The Dodgers Got Better Overnight

Yes, despite some pretty horrendous defending by Manny Ramirez and a loss to the cellar-dwelling Diamondbacks, the Dodgers suddenly look a lot deeper and more formidable for the postseason, thanks to two last second moves that added significant pieces to their puzzle just before the deadline for players to be made eligible for postseason rosters.

Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

It may not be graceful on grass, but imagine if Arizona's Stephen Drew were pulling this slide on top of a board while riding a wave? It's a pretty decent wipe out pose, no?

Without MLB, Pima County Looks to Japan

Long a host of a major league spring training site, Pima County will be abandoned of spring baseball come February 2011. The home district of Tuscon, Arizona's state capital and second largest city, has hosted both the Diamondbacks and Rockies in recent years. The White Sox had been in Tuscon even longer than baseball's most recent additions, yet they will be gone starting next spring. And after 2010, Pima County will host no one, with the Rockies and Diamondbacks relocating to newer training facilities outside the area. So who's going to fill the void? If the area's Sports and Tourism Authority has anything to say about it, some teams from Japan will.

Webb's Season Is Done

Brandon Webb is scheduled to have surgery on his right, throwing shoulder today in Texas, an operation that will be performed by Keith Meister, the Rangers' team physician. The procedure will end his season after just one start: An Opening Day outing in which he felt shoulder stiffness and was placed on the Disabled List immediately thereafter.
