  1. AL single-season HR record by a catcher is 35 (Ivan Rodriguez, 1999). Gary now sits at 34.
  2. Cole Hamels just listed as day-to day? What's that all about? EDIT: ok, Rangers now announcing that he's scratched from his start vs. CWS today due to neck stiffness. Doug Fister will move up a day to start in his stead.
  3. Today's NYY @ WAS game (Sabathia v. Scherzer) postponed to June 18. Yesterday's suspended game (which was to restart at 5:05 ET) postponed as well. The suspended game will be completed on June 18 as well, prior to the start of today's postponed game.
  4. After a string of 8 starts at 3B, Torres has suddenly been playing 2B the last couple of days. With Andujar heating up, I think the Yankees may seriously be considering the Torres 2B/Andujar 3B option.
  5. Can't see the Nats handing closer duties to Ryan Madson anytime soon. He just imploded in the 8th against the Mets. He came on with a 2 -run lead and promptly gave up 4 runs on 5 hits and a walk, in just 2/3rds of an inning. He's now been taken out with 2 men still on.
  6. Torres was back in the lineup today (at 3B). He went 1-for-2 (a double), with 2 BBs. He's now batting .452 over his last 10 games, and his OPS sits at .966 for the young season. Certainly looks as though he's ready for the majors, and now it's just a question of when the Yankees pull the trigger.
  7. Cancelled due to falling ice at Rogers? Sheesh, what next? Locusts...have we had a plague of locusts yet?
  8. Giles: 1 batter, 5 pitches, 1 SV. Sounds good.
  9. He's played 146 games in his MLB career to date. In that time, he's hitting .280 with 45 HRs. He'll definitely be the first catcher on fantasy draft boards next year.
  10. I think that a part of what's happening, is that the Astros may have decided to reduce his usage since June. Devenski was used very heavily last year (108.1 IP). This year the Astros, with the AL West locked up, may just be trying to keep him fresh for the playoffs. As such, he goes out there sporadically, and that may contribute to his not being as sharp as usual. I suspect that the Astros will start to put him in more frequently a few weeks before the playoffs start. IP by month in 2017: April - 16.2 May - 14.1 June - 17.1 July - 11.2 Aug. (to date) -
  11. Seriously? Gregorius is the #9 ranked SS in my Yahoo league's player rater (between Lindor at #8 and Segura at #10). No way would I drop him for an unproven rookie in a non-keeper.
  12. This. He doesn't see many pitches in the strike zone anymore, so earlier tonite he took his BB and scored a run. Oh, and he just hit #34.
  13. Moncada played in the International League, Reed in the PCL. Very big difference.
  14. Baseball Reference's "Hall of Fame Monitor" ( a Bill James creation) is a useful tool for such debates. It assesses a variety of factors to come up with an overall HoF induction probability score: 100 points means the player has a good possibility of induction, 130 points means the player is a virtual lock. It does this for all players, past and present. www.baseball-reference.com/about/leader_glossary.shtml#hof_monitor
  15. Wow, what an outing by Tanaka tonight vs. the Rays: 8 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 14 K. Edit: and he gets the "W". (NYY win 6-1).
