Well, on the bright side, they're down to only owing Chris Davis just a hair over $70M now!

Yeah, it's a dogfight for last right now. The Tigers have the edge, and I think they will pull it out. I just hope there is a great pick in their future as a result. Tough season.

Nats blow 9th inning lead (Jersey on Jersey crime).

And we have a tie at the top of the AL Central.

Kind of lame

Lots of issues with the original field. I think the biggest one is that the field is not level.

I was in Minneapolis a few weeks back
and the game I attended against the Yankees there were 5 home runs hit

It's gonna be a blood bath to the finish

(BTW: Nelson Cruz hit one about 500 feet that was absolutely majestic)

I saw a stat the other day where AAA has had more than 2000 more home runs to date, compared to last year.
The difference? The new ball.
Everytime I hear an announcer give a stat related to home runs I boil inside. It's a joke. HR stats are meaningless when comparing to the past.

Baseball is a game of statistics...some are interesting...

With last nights win over Cincinnati, the Seattle Mariners achieved a rather interesting status.

From 1995 to last night, the Mariners record is 1995 wins...2019 loses...

Doesn’t mean much, but it is interesting...

Classic definition of mediocrity right there. :notworthy:

Astros looking scary good. They lay the very occasional steaming turd, but they should be favored to get to the WS and beat either LA or ATL.

I hate this HR crap. The game is ruined.
But at least you are comparing stats from the same year. Comparing stats from this year to other years is pointless.

Speaking of home runs. Nick Castellanos has 15 in his first 40 games with the Cubs, tying a team record.
