- Mike Axisa of CBS Sports explored three reasons for the Astros (my World Series pick) terrible start in 2016, including their new additions not paying off.
- The A's lost a member of their family, as right hander Sean Murphy passed away at the age of 27 on Monday in Arizona. He had been in the A's minor league system for six seasons.
