Medical Exemption?: Brewers OF Mike Cameron is applying for a medical exemption to use drugs banned by MLB because of his injuries from a crash in the outfield a couple years back when he was with the Mets. [Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel]

Bottom-Feeding: One of UmpBump’s writers puts the not-so-nice emails she gets on display. [UmpBump]
