Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Nelson Cruz, Carlos Gonzalez, and Albert Pujols Combine to Set the Major League Record For Most Players to Finish a Season With 40 or More Home Runs and Less Than 100 RBIs
With the trend over the last several seasons showing a rise in strikeouts, drops in batting average, OBP, and runs scored, along with a sustained focus on power it is likely seasons of 40 or more home runs with less than 100 RBI may become more common. In fact, Pujols was the only one of the five sluggers to complete the odd feat who was not a regular strikeout victim. What’s more, none of the five 40 or more home run/sub-100 RBI seasons produced in 2015 were abbreviated by injury or had any ...Read More...

You don’t trade this kid.
That’s a nice chunk of change.
Is there a more tiresome broadcasting team than Costas and Kaat? They are just awful. Among the many stupid things they talked about yesterday was the umpire’s strike zone. The umpire was all over the place. Repeatedly, though, they would complain about a pitch being called wrong even when the pitch tracking clearly showed the call was right. Now they don’t have to love all the new stats or technology but not understanding pitch tracking just makes them look completely out of touch with today’s ...Read More...
It certainly wasn’t pretty, except to Royals fans.
It’s the Colby series. Maybe it’s the hair.
If only the Red Sox could get pitchers this good, maybe they would make the playoffs.
A great pitching duel in LA. If only it was a little earlier…
I am not a fan of instant replay. It’s tedious. They often review calls and get it wrong. I also dislike when people complain about a call not getting overturned when there is no conclusive evidence. I watched the replay multiple times. To me it looks like his spikes are still touching the bag. At the least, it proves the evidence isn’t conclusive, which means the original call stands. The original call made by the umpire who was only a few feet away.
5:30 PM Cubs (Hendricks) at Cardinals (Garcia), TBS. Cardinals lead 1-0
9 PM Mets (Syndergaard) at Dodgers (Greinke), TBS. Mets lead 1-0.

There’s not much more to the article, except a few related tweets that might have scrolled off by the time you read it. This news makes me sad.

The purge in Seattle continues.
