Scott Miller's Starting 9: Dodgers a Year Too Late to Make Moves They Need Now — It's not the heat, it's the humidity.... Clayton Kershaw is down, the Los Angeles Dodgers are out and Chavez Ravine cannot disguise the cracks in its faulty roster. Is now the time for the Dodgers to deal top-tier prospects for a Chris Archer, or a Matt Moore? No. Absolutely not.

Of Backward Caps and 9/11: Memories Stir as Piazza & Griffey Join Immortals — COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. - Tears began flowing immediately. Like, we're talking instantly. Hall of Fame inductions always are emotional. But this one, what a weepfest. And it was absolutely, sniff, touching. Careers often become sentimental journeys while we're paying scant attention, whether you're talking baseball, teacher or auto mechanic.

David Price and Sonny Gray Building a Bromance That Transcends the Game — Theirs is a friendship based on curveballs, Commodores and chip shots. Maybe one day, these two Vanderbilt University alums and Tennessee neighbors will be teammates, too. For now, David Price is the $217 million anchor in a sketchy Boston rotation as the Red Sox take aim at another World Series run.

David Ortiz's All-Star Farewell Is Passing of Baton to New Elite MLB Generation — SAN DIEGO - On the plane ride to California, where so many over the years have found only fool's gold, David Ortiz gathered his young Boston Red Sox All-Star teammates and delivered an All-Star message. He looked at Jackie Bradley Jr. Looked at Mookie Betts. Looked at Xander Bogaerts and Steven Wright.

Stephen Strasburg's Father-Son Bond with Tony Gwynn Made Him an MLB Star — SAN DIEGO - The Master looked out at the Pupil. It was autumn, 2006, the first days of fall practice, and the incoming freshman class was finding its way, as ever, maturity not always matching exuberance. So there was work to be done. A lot of work.

Scott Miller's Starting 9 (+5): Unveiling This Year's Anti-All-Star Team — If there's somethin' strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Yeah, yeah, we know. Ghostbusters! But on the baseball field this time of year, if there's somethin' weird, and it don't look good, who ya gonna call? VALERIE MACON/Getty ImagesStarbusters!

Scott Miller's Starting 9: Struggling Yankees May Still Have Big Say in Playoffs — Wondering what kind of world we're living in when Cleveland is a championship city and the Miami Marlins surge ahead of the New York Mets in the NL East.... In May, the Chicago Cubs walked reigning National League MVP Bryce Harper a Big Gulp-sized 13 times (in 19 plate appearances) in a four-game series, including six times in the 13-inning series finale.

How Prep Phenom Clayton Kershaw Became an L.A. Dodger 10 Years Ago — The kid was something special, all right. But the story of how Clayton Kershaw, a skinny stick-figured high schooler, landed with the Los Angeles Dodgers 10 years ago as the seventh overall pick in the draft? The astounding true fact that five pitchers-count 'em-were drafted ahead of him?

Scott Miller's Starting 9: Robinson Cano Rekindles Spark of MVP-Type Megastar — Floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee, not a bad way to go through life.... Robinson Cano, or, as Derek Jeter always teased him, Robinson Canoe, always did have two things: A great smile and a beautiful swing. Except, uh, last year, when both disappeared.

Scott Miller's Starting 9: As Mets and Nationals Race, 23 May Be Lucky Number — Got your graduation gifts all purchased? That time of year again.... They are both 23, and each will play an enormous role as the summer heats up and the Washington Nationals and New York Mets duel in the National League East.
