THE NEW BEASTS OF THE AL EAST

HIT AND RUN: In SI.com's newest daily blog writer Jay Jaffe goes deep inside the numbers to shed light on the biggest stories around the major leagues, including how the Orioles' Adam Jones and the Rays' David Price are changing the balance of power in the AL East. Says Jaffe, "I'll take the lessons I've absorbed from Bill James and his disciples and pass them along with some new twists—numbers are more interesting when you can see the ironies."

Asking Justin Combs to give up his UCLA scholarship is ridiculous. He earned that, and no one has the right to ask him to forfeit it. #befair
