Matt Harrington on the MLB Podcast The Show:

1  Jed Lowrie on Friday night’s Oakland A’s 5-4 victory supplied the key hits to help the ball club win. He did so well that any scouts looking for help might try and take Lowrie in the wavier trades during August

2 The LA Dodgers have the roster to possibly break the MLB all time most wins in a season record which is held by both the 1906 Chicago Cubs and the 2001 Seattle Mariners at 116 wins. The Cubs have a slight edge over that 2001 Mariners team they won the 116 games in 154 games while losing only 36 games the Cubs also have a higher winning percentage with .763 to the M’s .716. The Dodgers currently have a .704 percentage and need 35 more wins to tie the record, they have 47 games left which they would have to go 35-12 to tie it.

3.  The Houston Astros have been struggling after the July trade deadline and they’re also having clubhouse descension issues

4. Jeffery Loria owner whose selling the Miami Marlins to a group led by Derek Jeter for $1.2 billion. Jeter once he takes over the reigns in Miami is expected to make the Marlins competitive and a post season club much like they were in the early 2000s.

5 Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is back on the DL suffering from bad knees, the Sox are still a strong ball club and are in contention and should still do some damage in post season
