Three Strikes

SI's senior baseball writer takes you inside the game. This is just a taste of what you'll get online.

1 That was a fabulous victory for the Rockies last Thursday against the Reds, coming back from a 5--0 deficit to win 6--5, the last run scoring when rookie Chris Nelson(below) stole home. Too bad it was made possible by one of the worst rules in baseball: Teams suddenly can play with as many players as they wish, up to 40, when the pennant race gets down to its last month.

2 Just when you thought the value for the Rays' free-agent-to-be Carl Crawford couldn't get any higher, he adds another bonus to his package of skills: three-hole hitter. Crawford has hit third 27 times, and with 75 RBIs this year he's likely to surpass his career high of 81 RBIs. He is a .364 hitter with runners in scoring position this year.

3 The Giants have an upcoming promotion in which they'll give away Buster Posey replica jerseys, featuring the name and number (28) of their impressive rookie catcher. Posey's number has a uniquely unremarkable history in baseball: It is the only number between 1 and 37 that is not retired by any major league club.
