- One night only, in Arlington: Battle of the formerly elite closers who are currently really struggling!!!!
– With the game tied at 5-5 in KCR/TEX, Neftali Feliz came in and gave up the go-ahead run. Guess he just has to go ahead and call the Royals his daddy?

    Truly heads-up baserunning by Napoli. The second of those announcers in that clip mentioned that Peña expected to have to go wide to get the tag, and Napoli just went straight in and under. I’m going to call that a case of the more experienced catcher getting the better of the kid…wait, what? Peña actually made his debut the season before Napoli did? I knew Napoli wasn’t exactly a veteran, but I didn’t think…eh, Peña was a backup at the start of his career, stuck behind Brian McCann. That explains why I hadn’t heard of him until recently–I don’t even follow the NL that closely, so a bench player on an NL team…
