MLB has announced the 80-game suspension of Oakland right-hander Frankie Montas. While sources said he made a compelling argument the banned substance he took was not to enhance pitching performance, Montas accepted the suspension without appealing it.

Oakland A's starter Frankie Montas has been suspended 80 games after testing positive for a banned substance, sources tell ESPN. This had been a breakout season for Montas, who is 9-2 with 2.70 ERA and 97 Ks vs. just 21 walks in 90 innings.

Atlanta Braves third baseman Josh Donaldson won his appeal and will not be suspended after a benches-clearing incident with Pittsburgh, a source tells ESPN. Donaldson originally was suspended for one game. His fine for the incident was also reduced to $1,000.

That was upward of a quarter century ago. I’m not saying anyone is above doing that, by any means. But the business of baseball has changed significantly. To me, this is the biggest indication yet that the Rays simply don’t believe the area can support a full-time team.

Answering all the questions you have about the Rays exploring the possibility of splitting the season between the Tampa Bay area and Montreal: Why it could work, what's standing in the way and what it all means. An FAQ at ESPN:

Good on the Nationals. The way their stadium is constructed, the new netting is practically as good as foul pole-to-foul pole. The White Sox ... the Nationals ... the Rangers' new stadium ... the Tigers (who are one section from the foul poles). Let's make it 30 for 30.

The Chicago White Sox are extending protective netting all the way to the foul poles, as reported. One down, 29 to go. Your move, every other team. Go ahead and be the one that isn't prioritizing fan safety.

In addition, ESPN has learned that David Ortiz has been able to eat "soft foods," and has been in touch with loved ones, including former teammates, over the phone. His visits are still limited to close family and friends.

Prime Maxwell, prime Lauryn Hill, plus Duke and Coltrane together? That got me through a lot of COM 107 papers.

I appreciate you not saying it would be better than anything I'd write, too, even though we both know it's true.

I appreciate it when an acclaimed professional critic really goes for it with some analysis.
