Around the horn

Naughty, naughty

Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa filed an official complaint with Major League Baseball, alleging that Milwaukee gets an unfair advantage at Miller Park by increasing the illumination of the "ribbon boards" that ring the field when the Brewers are batting. That was denied by the Brew Crew, of course. Which didn't explain why they were 40-14 at home at the time but just 21-35 on the road.

Not so naughty

The Rays, meanwhile, are first in the majors in runs scored on the road and 29th in scoring at home at Tropicana Field.

"It does prove one thing," said manager Joe Maddon, who apparently couldn't help himself. "That we're not cheating at home."

Going inactive

Only 4 teams didn't make at least 1 trade in July: the Yankees, Rays, Twins and Angels.
