Extra innings and good secondary offerings highlight this look at the day that was and what will be.

The Tuesday Takeaway
On Monday, the Rays took the series opener from the Brewers behind seven strong innings from Jake Odorizzi, who complemented his fastball with both his slider and split-changeup, the latter of which he learned from teammate Alex Cobb this spring. The splitter was Odorizzi’s secondary offering of choice against Milwaukee and he threw 21 of 27 for strikes, including five of the swing-and-miss variety.

The boys check out Jason Parks, Bartolo Colon, and an inadequate shirsey section.

Jake Mintz and Jordan Shusterman, the proprietors of Cespedes Family Barbecue, are taking another baseball trip and chronicling their travels at Baseball Prospectus.

The world we live in is full of amazing natural wonders. Anybody can go to a computer and find a picture of the Grand Canyon or Mount Everest or even Mount Everth. But experiencing these things in person elevates you to an entirely different level. Live viewings provide a deeper appreciation for the physicality of these amazing sites. While on a computer or TV you can only utilize your eyes, but in person you can smell, hear, touch, and even taste the magic. Last night, we watched Bartolo Colon hit in person and it was downright beautiful.

A big Marlins comeback and a great Yu Darvish fun fact are part of yesterday's action and today's previews

The Monday Takeaway
The Nationals were on top of the Marlins 6-0 at the seventh-inning stretch on Monday night, and if the last decade was any guide, they had to be feeling good about that lead:

"You can't just trade him for nothing!" Sure you can.

Last week, I saw what I thought was an Onion headline. After all, The Onion has gotten so good at what they do, I now assume that anything in my Facebook feed is satirical. The story said that the Phillies were “working hard” to trade Ryan Howard. I don’t often use “LOL” when I type, because I don’t often laugh out loud.

Fantasy Freestyle: FAAB in Review: Asking the Non-Experts

Mike Gianella

Mike digs into some league-mates' strategies when bidding on NL-only imports Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel.

Every decision influences the next set of decisions that we make. Like a pebble in a pond, what we do today has a definitive impact on what we do tomorrow.

In fantasy baseball, this is true in every facet of the game. The auction or draft we have impacts what kind of trades or free agent moves we make during the season. The trades we make impact whether or not we make additional trades. The free agent pickups we make impact future free agent pickups and future trades. This series of actions and subsequent actions goes on until the season is over. In keeper leagues it goes on until you leave the league or the mortal coil.

Good pitching, triples, and sloppy baserunning are the weekend that was; pitchers on the trade block are the day that is.

The Weekend Takeaway
When the Angels, winners of five straight to wrap up the “first half,” looked up their schedule coming out of the All-Star break, here’s what they saw:
