I would wager the Angels won’t let him hit at the risk of setting back his recovery on an awkward swing or something

Not only can Ohtani hit, but he can FLY on the basepaths. He has the second fastest triple in the MLB this year behind Billy Hamilton and he was only off by like .03 seconds or something. Billy Hamilton steals 50+ bases a year.

As a side note, Billy Hamilton is the single worst starting position player in baseball.

Very fast. But he might only end up with 25 steals this year because he’s batting like .170

Jacob deGrom has a 1.16 ERA in his last 11 starts. The #Mets have won two of those games.

There was a season back in the 70’s or 80’s where the starting pitchers with the best ERA in the AL and NL both had losing records.

Maybe Pat can confirm or deny this but there’s some discussion on twitter about the NCAA not allowing teams to provide bananas to college World Series players during games.

I haven’t heard about that but I’ve been on vacation mode since we got eliminated. Are they saying it’s a compliance thing or just to stop the kids using them as phones. I can’t see bananas being a compliance issue but it is the Ncaa

is it true that Mike Trout hasn't gone 2 straight games in his career without getting on base at least once? I heard that this morning on the radio and that has to be a lie

Mike Trout will play his 1,000th game in the majors Thursday night, an impressive feat considering he’s still only 26. He’s only the 43rd player in MLB history to have crossed the 1,000 game threshold at such a young age, and the only names on that list to have a higher career OPS+ than Trout’s 175 through that point are Ty Cobb (181) and Mickey Mantle (176).

Trout has already accumulated more wins above replacement than 74 position players who ended up in baseball’s hall-of-fame. Among the names he’s already surpassed are Yogi Berra, Mike Piazza, and Vladimir Guerrero, who was elected to the hall this January by 92.9 per cent of voters in his second year on the ballot.

He’s improved his OPS+ each of the last three seasons, from 173 in 2016, to 187 in 2017, to an otherworldly 219 through his first 74 games of 2018. In the history of the game, there have been only 19 seasons in which a player achieved an OPS+ of 219 or higher. Babe Ruth has six of them; Barry Bonds had four; Ted Williams had two. Among those who did it only once: Mantle, Lou Gehrig, and Rogers Hornsby. We’re dealing with the best to ever play the game.

A season like that is also something that hasn’t happened since 2004, when Bonds capped a remarkable run of putting up a 231 OPS+ or higher four seasons in a row. Of course, his career numbers will always be viewed with some skepticism due to his links to the use of performance enhancing drugs, particularly during the BALCO scandal which played out exactly when Bonds was putting up those historic seasons.

Before Bonds, no one had put up such a strong OPS+ season since 1957, when Mantle (221) and Williams (233) finished one-two in MVP voting. Outside of Williams’ great campaign in 1941, when he put up a 235 OPS+, you have to go all the way back to 1927 to find a similar season, which is when Ruth put up 225 and Gehrig put up 220.

This is all to say, Trout is the first player not tainted by a steroid scandal to have a season this strong since the 50s. And he’s one of only six players to do it since 1926.

Seattle has a ridiculous stretch in August. They have to play 3 series against Houston and then a few against Boston and the Yanks. They have a few head to heads against the A’s too where Oakland can make up a ton of ground fast.

maybe the idea of having to face the yankees multiple times a year is enough to scare Price into opting out of his contract
