That's true. The depth at 3rd base is nuts.
So, uh, my Royals unsuck but suck. I are confused me sees.
I can relate.
Freddie Freeman started his rehab assignment last night. Didn't even bring a first baseman's glove with him. For better or worse, we're probably gonna see Freddie Freeman as a third baseman either in the upcoming Washington series or right after the AS break.
This situation kinda reminds me of Ron Grant. He made it all the way to the bigs as a 2B, then demoted himself for a year or so so he could learn the OF. He came back as a perennial all star.
Eh... 7 GB with the entire American League between you and a WC spot is a country mile. However, I understand what you're coming from. The entire AL has been rather mediocre outside of Houston, and I'll give the nod to Boston and the Yanks. However, they haven't been dominant either, that's for sure. In theory, everyone is still alive, and a hot streak away from being in the thick of it. No doubt.
Yeah, you can't sit down Matt Adams the way he's swinging the bat. That lineup actually takes on a pretty damn good look when you add Freeman back into the mix.
Astros have 4 players in the top 15 in wRC+ (minimum 200 PA). Marwin Gonzalez has the highest of the bunch (165).
Clayton Kershaw is the first pitcher in MLB history to strike out at least 13 in a complete game with fewer than 100 pitches.
Previous record: Clayton Kershaw, 101, 5/1/2016. Struck out 14 in a shutout
I knew the Astros had a very good offense, but I didn't realize they had a team OPS+ of 136. That's insane! They probably won't keep that up, but I can't recall seeing any teams having an OPS+ that high at this point in a season. They're hitting .291/.356/.502 overall. For reference, Avisail Garcia has a .356 OBP and .498 SLG%. Their whole lineup is hitting like 9 Garcias. They currently have four hitters with an OPS+ north of 160 (Gonzalez isn't qualified, but he does have 293 PA). They have 6 other hitters with an OPS+ north of 100.
Their team wRC+ of 130 would be the highest since the end of the deadball era. The 1927 Yanks had a wRC+ of 126.

Perez with another bomb.
And bomb #30 is a 3 run jimmy to right in Fenway.
Bartolo Colon is a Pokemon confirmed.
Yup. Who knew the trick to achieving his evolution was force feeding him?
Rare Candy will do it every time.
Royals fans need to stick together when the backup-backup catcher calls a good game.
