Free agency is winding down, but plenty of recognizable names haven't found homes yet.

It’s been three long months since Michael Martinez grounded out against Mike Montgomery and thankfully we're just one more long month from real, live baseball games being a thing again, but quite a few prominent free agents remain unsigned in what has been an offseason light on typically big spending. Each of the first 19 names on BP’s annual top 50 free agent rankings have found homes for 2017, but 11 of the other 31 players are still on the open market and are placing increasingly agitated calls to their agents.

Jason Hammel disappointed with the A's, but seems to have returned to his winning ways with the Cubs

If you’re a follower of the Cubs, you’re aware that this season has been a bit of an up-and-down experience. After a six-game winning streak in mid-May, which took them to a season-high six games over .500, the Cubs have gone 7–9, with the offense being the biggest culprit for their struggles. In seven of those nine losses they’ve scored three or fewer runs, and actually did so in five of their seven victories, too. To get those seven wins, it’s clear the Cubs have had some nice pitching performances, and for the most part, that’s come from the starters.

When most hear that the Cubs' starting pitching is leading the way of late, they're likely to point to Jon Lester, he of the seven-year, $155 million contract signed last December. His spiffy 1.76 ERA in May certainly has helped the Cubs stay afloat during this last month, but he also is the owner of essentially 0 pitcher WARP (the new version, based on DRA), dead last for this current rotation group. Jake Arrieta has a 3.04 ERA, a 26.6 percent strikeout rate, a 5 percent walk rate, and a strong 1.2 PWARP. Tsuyoshi Wada has been impressive since joining the rotation (while not much of an innings-eater, he’s put up a 2.30 ERA with 19 strikeouts in 15 2/3 innings in his three starts) and Kyle Hendricks has been better of late.

The Orioles and Tigers announcers give a clinic in how to determine intent and stick up for the good guys in 15 seconds.

After the Tigers hit back-to-back-to-back home runs in the fourth inning this afternoon Jason Hammel hit Matt Tuiasosopo with a high breaking ball on the first pitch of the subsequent at-bat and Hammel was ejected.

Playoff Prospectus: ALDS Game Five Preview: Orioles at Yankees

4

Daniel Rathman

The Game 1 starters match up again, this time with the series on the line.

With a pitching matchup of two no. 4 starters in a hitter-friendly ballpark, Game Four had the ingredients to become a slugfest. Instead, the Orioles and Yankees combined for only three runs in a 2-1, 13-inning Baltimore win that set the stage for Game Five this afternoon. To get you ready before first pitch, here are the PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for the winner-take-all Game Five:

Ham-headed is the new ham-fisted.

Sometimes I write about serious things. Today, for instance, I wrote about umpires. Umpires are usually pretty serious, because they know that if they smile they might look vulnerable, and then someone might throw a helmet at them. And yesterday, I wrote about the Astros, who are more serious than we thought they’d be.

On the Beat: Harping on Harper

9

John Perrotto

Though Bryce Harper's reputation leaves many questioning his maturity, his Nationals teammates have embraced him.

When Bryce Harper stepped into the batter's box for his first major-league plate appearance April 28 at Dodger Stadium, the usually laid-back LA crowed booed the Nationals rookie outfielder lustily.
