Red Sox placed Allen Craig (ankle) on the 15-day disabled list.
And there it is, folks. Allen Craig, take a bow. Probably one of the most overrated players over the last two or three years. How people were ever suckered in to drafting this guy or believing that he was so much more than he actually was is just a completely mystery. He makes his annual trip to the disabled list here and while he is supposed to only need the minimum time, Craig is a notoriously slow healer and will probably end up out longer.

Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
