• Gavin Floyd pitched again last night. It was his third appearance of the season; all scoreless. This one was special for him, though as (per the radio last night) it came against the White Sox, who he had his best seasons with. Here's Zack Meisel on Floyd, from yesterday.

• Next season's MLB schedule has been released. The Indians open against Boston and end the season against the Royals. Both of those teams are likely to look very different than they do today. A full post on this will be up soon.

• The Rangers are now one game behind the Astros in the AL West. It's been clear for nearly a week now that the Rangers were playing too well for the Indians to catch them. And the Indians losing 4 of their last 7 games probably made this moot anyways, but maybe the Astros are the team we could have caught had we started September like we ended August.

• Scott Boras so graciously allowed Matt Harvey to pitch yesterday—and it did not go well. Harvey wasn't so bad, but this play by Yoenis Cespedes turned a single into an inside-the-park grand slam. I stopped watching after that. Luckily for the Mets, they did not stop playing after that. They were down 7–1 then proceeded to score 7 unanswered runs to win 8–7.

Here's how Drew Storen's night went:
—Gave up 3-run double to first batter faced
—Walk after having next batter 1-2
—Ball 1 then a wild pitch
—Another walk to load the bases
—4-pitch walk to force in the tying run
—Induced lineout to Bryce Harper

• Impossibly, Mark Buehrle is about to miss a start. Marcus Stroman will make his 2015 debut in Mark's place.

• If you want to seek it out for yourself, there's a thing on deadspin about Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada.
