Adam DunnAdam Dunn belted his seventh home run of the season on Sunday; the 361st of his career to tie Joe DiMaggio on the all-time list. The man who is just as popular for his home runs as he is infamous for his strikeouts finally hit two long balls in the same week. While the bomb helped the Chicago White Sox overcome the Oakland Athletics in the game, Dunn still has a long way to go to salvage what is quickly becoming a season to forget.

Ricky RomeroAs pitching becomes more and more specialized, we’re gradually seeing a decline in the number of wins and losses they’ll rack up over the course of a career. We’ll never see another 400 or 500 game winner, and even 300 game winners will become scarce. But what story does a won-lost record really tell? It certainly doesn’t indicate how well a pitcher performed. Just ask Ricky Romero, who is currently 5-6 for the Toronto Blue Jays.

David OrtizIt looks like David Ortiz still has a few swings left in that bat of his. After a few years of slow starts, Big Papi got the bat going a bit sooner this time around. The 35-year-old DH cracked his 14th home run of the season on Tuesday night, lifting his Boston Red Sox over the New York Yankees with a 6-4 win and bringing the two teams into a tie for first the American League East standings.

Stephen StrasburgEvery year, teams lose pitchers to the disabled list due to arm injuries. It’s inevitable. In 2010 alone, teams averaged using 20 pitchers over the course of the season. Whether it’s fatigue due to overworking, shoulder muscle tears or busted elbows that require Tommy John Surgery, pitchers continue to go down and we still have no realistic clue why it’s happening.

Russell Westbrook getting busy, why would you want to trade himThis week's "In Your Face" brings back idiotic New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon into the spotlight for his not understanding the concept of ownership and supporting the team you own. We also call out all of the Russell Westbrook haters that want the Oklahoma City Thunder to trade their 22-year-old, vastly improving, and dominating-type of point guard because of an assumption that he cannot co-exist with Kevin Durant. Ridiculous. LISTEN up!

Jo-Jo ReyesJo-Jo Reyes of the Toronto Blue Jays took another one on the chin Wednesday afternoon, losing to the New York Yankees. For Reyes, it was his 28thd straight start without getting a win, which ties the mark for most consecutive winless starts set by Cliff Curtis of the Boston Braves in 1910-11 and Matt Keough of the Oakalnd Athletics in 1978-79. Reyes himself, who started with the Atlanta Braves in 2007 and was acquired by the Blue Jays this past offseason after a few years of injuries, hasn’t won a game since June 13, 2008.

New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon does a good job blasting his own playersIn this edition of EndScore Report, DV and (mostly) Chris talk about New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon, who had some scathing remarks regarding his own players. His own players! Wilpon disses once thought of foundation players, Jose Reyes and David Wright, as well as Carlos Beltran. Way to go, Fred. Great way to devalue your players for any possible trades, as well as send a clear message to any free agents that the Mets ownership is a joke! Chris, the resident Mets fan, gets down with his bad self and DV just let's him do his thing. LISTEN UP!

Travis HafnerIf nothing else, interleague play allows the baseball world to focus on rivalries other than that of the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, but frankly, not enough teams have those “natural” rivals that baseball would like them to have. Proximity alone isn’t enough. You can’t argue that interleague games aren’t important. Every game is important. The crossover games though are little more than a cheap attempt to boost sales. The good news for MLB is that it works. But is it really fair?

Mike McCoyMike McCoy must have more frequent flyer miles than any non-major leaguer right now. The utility infielder for the Toronto Blue Jays has been up and down like a yo-yo between Toronto and Triple-A Las Vegas. He started the season on the 25-man roster, but less than two months into it he’s already been optioned to Triple-A and recalled three times each. In 2010, McCoy made two round-trips from the desert and across the border.

Evan Longoria and the Tampa Bay Rays are sitting atop the American League East for now.In this episode of EndScore Report, DV and Chris sweep across the MLB divisions for a quick recap of what's going down. It looks like the Tampa Bay Rays are gearing up to surprise the world again, despite losing some key players this past offseason. However, Evan Longoria is still there and healthy.  It's no surprise that World Series favorites, the Philadelphia Phillies are doing well, but it is surprising that the Florida Marlins aren't letting them run away with the NL East division. The biggest surprise has to be the Cleveland Indians leading the AL Central by a significant amount of games. The Pittsburgh Pirates have also been relatively surprising. However, it's still early and the cream always seem to rise to the top. Give a LISTEN to hear our thoughts on the Majors!
