Remember yesterday how Rob Dibble said that it was an email from Stephen Strasburg’s father to the Lerners that got him fired? Well, Strasburg took to Twitter last night to take issue with that:
For those of you wondering my dad doesn’t even have the Lerners’ email… Actually was a fan of Dibble believe it or not
No. I don’t believe it.

HOUSTON — Houston slugger Yordan Alvarez left the Astros’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fifth inning with left ankle discomfort.
Alvarez, who is tied for second in the American League with 37 home runs, rolled his ankle running out of the box on a single in the first inning.
He looked to be in some pain as he jogged to first base and was checked on briefly by manager Dusty Baker and a trainer before remaining in the game. Serving as the designated hitter, he struck out in the third inning before being replaced by pinch-hitter David Hensley for his at-bat in the fifth.
