Terry Collins spoke about his poor decisions last night.

Matt Harvey, Scott Boras, and Sandy Alderson sparred over innings limits yesterday. Is there more to come?

Lucas Duda begins a rehab assignment with Binghamton tonight, which couldn't come at a better time. Michael Cuddyer is out with wrist tendinitis and Daniel Murphy had a PRP injection in his injured quad. He won't help the 2015 club but first base prospect Dominic Smith picked up the Florida State League MVP.

The Red Sox beat the Phillies 7-5 yesterday.

Troy Tulowitzki leaped over the catcher to avoid a tag yesterday.

Carlos Gonzalez is hitting lots and lots of dingers and is not dead.
