The Price is Wright, Ice Cream on Sale!

Yasiel Puig makes baseball great again

Andrew McCutchen is hitting .396 with four home runs and 13 RBIs since being dropped from third to sixth in the batting order

Anthony Rizzo is the seventh leadoff batter for the Cubbies this season

Kyle Schwarber played at catcher for two innings yesterday. That makes three.

Marco Gonzales gave up three home runs and only made it through 3 ⅓ innings. It was his first start since Sept 2015

George Springer is already only one home run away from beating his own franchise record from last season for the most lead off home runs. He is only the second player in MLB history with seven leadoff homers through June 13

Injury Updates

Gerardo Parra will be out longer than the two weeks previously anticipated.

He’s coming around, he’s gaining on it, but there really is no timetable. This really was a good tear. There is no imminent return. These type of injuries are really difficult to pinpoint.Manager Bud Black on Parra

Mike Trout has not ruled out returning prior to the July 11 All-Star Game.

Ben Lively is the first Phillies pitcher to allow less than four runs in each of his first three career games since 1969.

Giancarlo Stanton is hitting .354 with six home runs over the 18 games he has batted second in the lineup

Matt Adams has hit six homers over the past two weeks, tied with Cody Bellinger for the most in the National League during that time. He is actually better than Bellinger though, in just about every other category.

Carlos Gonzalez is 0 for 20 with six strikeouts on the current road trip and now sports a batting average of .215 on the season

Bud Norris is 11 for 12 in save opportunities

Cody Bellinger is the third Dodgers rookie in history to hit multiple home runs in four games.

Amed Rosario is hitting, and that is what the fans see. They also see a big fat hole at shortstop. He has also made 11 errors and swings at pitches outside the strike zone on a regular basis.

Management thinks he needs more time in the minors. Mets management pretty much just pisses everyone off.

Ty Blach had a 1.87 ERA over his first five starts, and they were all quality starts. He is 0-2 with a 9.26 ERA over the two starts since. He isn’t concerned that hitters have figured him out but he should be.

 

Gerrit Cole and David Price are benched in Tout Wars right now. You all know what that means right?

  • Cole pitched seven innings, allowed one run on three hits and struck out three
  • Price went six innings, allowed three runs on four hits and struck out six.

Matt Andriese will miss two months because of a stress reaction in his hip, so..

Jacob Faria made his second career start in the majors last night and became the third pitcher in club history to win his first two starts, and should stick in the Rays rotation at least as long as Andriese is out.

Obviously Jacob Faria is going to get first crack at it. Blake Snell has done some good things at Triple A, he’s continued to make progress so we’re excited about that.

Teams

The Nationals bullpen has the worst ERA in the National League, 5.02. Yep, no surprise there. Such a waste

The Twins are leading their division even though they have the worst home record in the American League, 13-19. They set a franchise record yesterday though, with 28 hits.

The Rays starting pitchers rank third in the American League with a 3.58 ERA

Angels relievers rank second in the league in preventing inherited runners from scoring and five of them have an ERA under 3.00. They have faced teams with losing records 45 times out of their first 67 games this season.

The Rays starting pitcher was under the age of 30 yesterday for the 464th consecutive time.

    Buster Posey felt sudden pain in his surgically reconstructed ankle after hitting a home run last night but it sounds like he may only miss two games. Grab Wilson Ramos if he is still available in your league..

    Matt Harvey allowed another three homers over four innings last night. He is suffering from a tired arm. Who knows what the Mets will do with him. Cargo is benched..

    Marcus Stroman has not given up more than two runs in six of his last seven, and the Blue Jays has won each of his last seven starts, and nine of 13 on the season.

    I wore my Mets hat out the first night I was in Philadelphia, and when I told that to GoFigure, she said, "Mets in Philly, no good. Philly is a total homer town, home teams only. If you aren't sporting home colors, there's no good interaction." Then I tried to talk to a girl at […]

    Cam Bedrosian will not be activated today as expected because he is ‘not ready’ to face live batters. Is this guy soft or what is the deal? Just when you started to like Gerardo Parra, he hurts his neck and sits somewhere in between the bench and the disabled list. Expect him to hit the […]

    Albert Pujols has more RBI since 2015 than anyone in the American League. Andrew McCutchen is hitting .394 with three homers in the last ten games. Over 1,245 games since his debut in 2009, McCutchen ranks first among National League players in hits (1,348), extra-base hits (497) and total bases (2,254). He has 183 home […]

    Everyone knows that when an MLB grand slam is hit, Papa John’s gives 40% off the next day with the code PAPASLAM right? Last night there were seven, the most ever in one day.

    Cubs manager Joe Maddon wins the best quote of the day, Ian Happ batted first while Kyle Schwarber hit seventh and the Cubbies beat the Cardinals at home after losing six straight road games

    The guy who got Mr. Met fired feels real proud of his four second video, telling everyone that he was not the one heckling things at Mr. Met about 'yo momma'. I think I will heckle him until he blocks me or flips me off, then i will call his job and get him canned […]

    Phillies GM Matt Klentak contradicted manager Pete Mackanin yesterday by saying that the Phillies are committed to giving Maikel Franco more time to snap his slump, Mr. Met got fired for flipping off a fan yesterday and James Paxton is the seventh-hardest throwing starting pitcher in baseball history

    Last week Pete Mackanin benched Maikel Franco for two games, but instead of talking to him, he waited for Franco to approach him. Last year he did the same thing to Odubel, who never showed up to talk about it because he thought he was getting rest. WTF kind of communication is this?

    Joe Maddon isn’t ‘ready’ to give up on Ian Happ even though he is 2 for his last 21 and struck out four times last night. Is this the same as not giving up on Kyle Schwarber as the leadoff batter? That worked out well. The question is when, not if they will give up […]
