Per game attendance is down at Angel Stadium by 4,300 fans. That’s compared to their numbers last year, but if you want to compare it to the height of Red October days, then that number is closer to 8,000. The benchmark for every season since 2002 was 3 million Angels fans passing through the turnstiles every year, and from these early estimates, they are not going to be hitting that mark. Are the Angels worried? Well, if Robert Alvarado, the VP of marketing and ticket sales is to believe, ...Read More...

Lord take me now, because I will never see anything more awesome than this.
Three videos at the link, including one of the switch-hitting Blake Swihart having to run back to the dugout to grab his lefty batting ...Read More...
If my memory isn’t faulty, I also remember some commentary about Eovaldi’s lack of deception in his motion, which means hitters get a better view.
Jon Heyman’s Sunday notes column on Friday.

The OMNICHATTER was never meant to save anyone
Is Lindor really ever going to be a good hitter? Regardless, Cleveland’s shortstops have a .509 OPS, ranked 29th in OPS, so far this year. Their Off Runs (Fangraphs) at shortstop sit at #27 with -11.0 runs. Overall, their shortstops rank 29th with -0.6 WAR. In other words, their shortstop play stinks anyway, so why not bring up Lindor now?
Pirates starter Charlie Morton’s mechanics sound again at last, and the results prove it | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
If Morton pitches well this season, the Pirates may beat the Cardinals.
Jayson Stark with a nice article about Joe Maddon’s decision to bat his pitcher 8th.
Debacle? It was a loss. Despite their inconsistent play, despite their breakdowns, despite their failures to play up to expectations, this team has enough talent and, more importantly, time (5.5 back of first) to right the ship and win the division.

How much of the change is due to a shift in philosophy? It makes sense for teams to look for more defense at shortstop and catcher when offense drops.

The 21-year-old kid’s first complete game since high school — and the first nine-inning complete game of his life — was so near….Hinch on Wednesday went to the mound before Davis stepped in, as suspenseful a moment as any pitch itself. Closer Luke Gregerson was warm in the ‘pen, with McCullers’ chance to go the distance in the balance....Read More...
Are the Cubs really moving Bryant to the outfield?
