    Can't win them all. How do you think the BoSox feel after going 8-2 and losing ground in their division?

    Both NY teams first to 40 wins - never happened previously.

    As bad as NL East was to start year - Yanks have had an easier strength of schedule so far (in the 20ies) and more games against sub-500 teams than Mets. Admittedly not most earth shattering or statistically relevant! [emoji1] And its going to reverse over the next stretch.

    But the Yanks are doing what they're supposed to - crushing this part of their schedule. Do I think the Yanks will get to 115+ wins (current pace) - no, but a century is certainly a real possibility.

    Will Tony LaRussa be the next to get the ax?

    At what point does Stephen Strasburg call it a day?

    Isn't he friends with the owner? I'd be surprised to see him fired.

    Just can't stay healthy, can he. He got lit up and put back on the IL, but his rehab starts were good (apparently--not like I saw them).

    Braves won again last night, but it looks like Albies will be out for the majority of the season. He fractured his foot on a very awkward swing.

    ^^ That was kinda weird. I wonder if he had a hairline fracture already.

    Man, you don't like to see that.

    But why did no one help him off of the field/into the dugout??

    Heartbreak for the Cardinals' Miles Mikolas last night, as he came within one strike of a no-hitter. At least an umpire didn't cost him.


    And heartbreak for Phillies fans, as the bullpen shit the bed and spoiled a 4-for-5, 6 RBI night from Rhys Hoskins, who hit two HRs in a losing effort.

    Meanwhile, the Braves roll on....(dammit)

    The Braves' announcers suggested as much last night, too. I seem to recall a hard play at second a few weeks back. But I suppose it doesn't much matter.

    It was such an awkward swing. Maybe it'll finally convince him to give up batting left-handed. He's much better as a right-handed batter, and it ain't even close. In fact, it's historically not close.

    https://blogs.fangraphs.com/finding-...witch-hitting/

    "When discussing switch-hitters who should give up switch-hitting, Albies is usually the first name to come up. He sports an 80-point platoon split, the largest in our sample of hitters."

    I'm guessing everyone assumed he had fouled it off himself.

    And it's looking more and more like the players hated Girardi.
    I don't think Girardi has been popular with a team since his Marlins days. For some reason the Yankees allowed him to linger in NY like a stale fart, but I was certainly happy to see him go, especially considering how excellent his replacement has been.

    Girardi's 2009 title kept him on board longer than the players liked, it seems. He's a hard-ass and, apparently, refused to embrace the new obsession with analytics.

    Two immaculate innings by two Astros pitchers in the same game the other day. A couple of iffy called strikes, but still, pretty amazing.

    Love the whole "Immaculate Inning" thing. Very rare.

    I'm not one to gloat about my team, especially since I have nothing to do with their success. But, sheesh, those Yankees are on a truly historic run at 48-16. Yet, they still have a few huge holes in their lineup. So, I can't expect this to continue. But, I am certainly enjoying it.

    The Yanks are a full 8 team WAR over the trio of LAD, NYM and Cheatstros

    Super ludicrous for sure!

    Last night's Yankees/Rays game was pretty wild, but would have been less so if it wasn't for what could very well be the WORST balls-and-strikes calling that I have ever seen. And, no, it wasn't Laz Diaz behind the plate; it was Ryan Blakney, who I am not familiar with.

    The calling of balls and strikes seems worse this year. I don't know if the pitch framing catchers are deceiving these umps or if there's an actual vision disease spreading amongst the umpire crews but it's the worst I have ever seen. Bring on the roboumps now!

    Anthony Rizzo had a 16-pitch AB last night. I don't recall ever seeing one that long.
