Attention minority ballplayers: do not show too much emotion on the field, or else you will be called immature (Reyes, Milledge). Also, don't show too little emotion, or else people will say you don't care (Beltran, Delgado).

Cubs re-sign Zambrano

Free Ramon Castro!

Good job, Willie

I often knock Randolph for his in-game management, so I've got to give him credit when he does something right.  I think the Mets got a critical call later in the game to make up for the terrible...
