Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Starling Marte is the latest MLB player to get caught taking a performance-enhancing drug. Marte has begun serving an 80-game suspension. His “apology” was predictably dishonest. Until the punishments for cheaters change, expect this cycle to repeat itself a couple of times every season.
The Mets have not lost since I got married. Just sayin’. The offense has come alive since the trade deadline — one of the worst group of bats in the league is suddenly among the best. Meanwhile, someone you may have never heard of threw a no-hitter while someone you probably know came awfully close. All that and more in my latest recap for CBS Local.
