  1. If I’m Taylor Jordan and watching A. J. Cole on the MLB shuttle instead of me, I’m wondering what I have to do. Kudos to Cole, though, for a much better outing with the big club last night than his first.

  2. 1st question, Luke. Does your dog know how humiliating it looks wearing prison garb?

    Great to see Taylor Jordan doing so well now that he’s healthy.

  3. KW. Jordan can look to Atl to see how things
    Change with injuries in a New York minute.
    Cue Eagles song.
    I like how Senators can score 8 runs with
    No HRs
    Poll question : if Werth has to go on DL- who gets
    Call for bench ??
