Stellar year has Joey Votto disproving critics — Joey Votto dropped the bat nonchalantly and looked briefly toward left field as the baseball soared into the seats. And then he was off circling the bases, head down, as always, expressionless, as always. This was one more perfect moment in a season filled with them.

Iron Man: Cal Ripken's mark a landmark moment — Twenty years later, it remains the sweetest and most surreal scene I've witnessed in sports -- the night Cal Ripken played in his 2,131st consecutive game to break Lou Gehrig's seemingly unbreakable iron man record. I watched it in the press box at Camden Yards alongside Shirley Povich, one of the great sportswriters and gentlemen of our time.

September brings intriguing storylines — Everything the Kansas City Royals did last season had the feel of a magical ride. Remember that eight-game playoff winning streak? That surely didn't feel real, did it? Did all that 2014 magic mean the Royals would be a one-hit wonder? Some wondered. How would the Royals handle success and expectations?

Mets meeting standards they set for themselves — One by one, the injured guys have returned to the Mets. And new talent has arrived, too, adding pop to a lineup that needed some. Changes here, changes there. Little by little, the Mets have been transformed. Check them out now. The Mets are 18-6 in August, and they're seemingly sprinting toward their first playoff appearance in nine years.

So you always wanted to see how Citi Field would sound late in the season with @Mets in contention? Here you go.

Fiery Carlos Gomez only knows one speed — This is one of the reasons the first-place Houston Astros wanted Carlos Gomez. Sure, they wanted the spectacular plays in center field. They wanted the power, the stolen bases and all the other stuff that has defined his nine seasons in the Major Leagues. They also wanted Gomez's fire and emotion.

Jordan Spieth is already building his legacy. — All Jordan Spieth has done these last five months is become a rock star on the PGA TOUR. He won two majors, came close in two others, became the world's No. 1, pairing domination with the sort of human touch that makes a great athlete truly compelling.

Key stretch on deck for NL Central contenders — These games ought to inject energy into teams playing out a disappointing season. Baseball people say teams and players reveal a lot about themselves by how they approach such things. And they don't forget who responded and who didn't. The Bucs trail the Cards by 3 1/2, games while the Cubs are 6 1/2 back.

Division-leading Astros are a confident crew — HOUSTON -- Jason Castro was the right guy to finish another magical day for a team that has had plenty of them. He was here when the reconstruction of the Houston Astros began three years ago and endured some of the toughest times.

Did Fiers use pine tar during his no-hitter? If so, who cares? — There was a little bit of buzz on Twitter Friday night that Mike Fiers may or may not have had a mysterious substance in his glove while twirling his no-hitter against the Astros. There's no concrete evidence he used it, but even if he did, it shouldn't matter.

Astros provide perfect scenario for Mike Fiers — HOUSTON -- In those final innings Friday night, Astros right-hander Mike Fiers fed off the roaring crowd, and his own endless supply of adrenaline and dreams.
