Please help us get him to choose us. Paw if you have any questions. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.

Scientists face pressure to publish new discoveries, which in turn might influence what they study, and that, of course, is not necessarily a good thing.

Good morning, I'm David Greene with highlights from a Toronto Blue Jays/Texas Rangers game over the weekend. A young fan sitting near third base snagged a foul ball.
