This Season:

  • When a batter is ahead in the count they are hitting .295
  • When the pitcher is ahead, batters are hitting .204

Maikel Franco is hitting .133 in the 92 plate appearances that ended with him ahead in the count. He swings at everything when he is ahead in the count so why would a pitcher throw a strike?

When I’m ahead in the count, I’m picking too many spots. I just want to look for my pitch. Sometimes I swing at balls away. I swung at balls that are high. Or down. When I have two strikes, I’m more selective. I just try to see the ball and put good contact on it. But when I’m ahead in the count, I’m just expanding the zone.Maikel Franco

Nick Pivetta is the first Phillies starter to throw seven scoreless innings this season. 75 of 107 pitches were fastballs that averaged 95 mph.

Matt Davidson has hit four home runs in four games.

Jose Quintana hasn’t won since May 2.

Lonnie Chisenhall is the third Indians bench player to drive in five or more runs in one game since 1913

Justin Verlander leads the American League with 42 walks through 14 starts.

Rich Hill allowed seven runs, the most he has allowed since 2009. Even though he threw 105 pitches yesterday, Hill has yet to throw a pitch in the sixth inning of a game this season

Gary Sanchez is the only player in MLB history with more home runs in his first 47 games than Cody Bellinger

Injury Updates

Wilson Ramos caught seven innings at Triple-A Wednesday without issue. Pencil in a return on June 25

To me it’s like spring training, a full game is not most important but being able to bounce definitely is for a catcher, and we’re getting closer to that point Kevin Cash on Ramos

Tyson Ross will make his season debut today at home against the Mariners

Buster Posey felt sudden pain in his surgically reconstructed ankle after hitting a home run last night.

Eduardo Nunez sustained a left hamstring injury on his 30th birthday


The Cardinals bullpen threw only one less inning than their starting pitchers over the four game series against the Brewers. They are 10-19 against teams above .500.

The Royals have scored seven or more runs in each of their last five games for the third time in club history

Bruce Bochy used Ty Blach and Jeff Samardzija as pinch hitters after he used Aaron Hill and Kelby Tomlinson as pinch-hitters and Nick Hundley and Gorkys Hernandez as injury replacements.

    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..

    Puig is making baseball fun again and the Price is Wright because ice cream is on Sale. Who is on first?

    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 […]
