Wow I didn't know they went out that far. I thought it was kind of weird when I got it down in Visalia.

Stanton looks kind of lost at the plate this year. He's always had swing and miss qualities and I didn't expect him to be the .290 hitter he was last year, but he seems to be trying to expand his zone even more and its not paying off. I haven't looked at the numbers to confirm that's what is happening, just seems that way to me.

Oh and Jose Fernandez

7IP 2H 0R 12K 1BB to follow up his 13K performance his last time out. I think 11/12 strikeouts tonight were swinging.

Wow I didn't think they'd send him out in the 8th. Struck out two more and gave up another hit. 14 strikouts total.

Yeah, Jose Fernandez is insanely good. He's doing this at age 20. It's scary how good he's going to be.

If anyone other than Jose Fernandez wins NL ROY, there should be riots. And by "anyone" I mean Puig.

Shelby Miller has a legit case and is right there with Fernandez.

Shelby's first two months have been like Jose's last two months and vice versa. They've had eerily similar years so far, but Jose definitely has the edge. Yes bias.

The Cardinals lose 7 in a row and I thought they were finally coming back down to earth a little bit in terms of team batting average with RISP. Then they go out and win 3 of 4, winning games 13-0, 13-3, and 15-2.

he has been ridiculous on the road
the A's offense has been pathetic lately though, even if they hold on to the division they don't look like a team that can win a round in the playoffs.

I've been patient with Reddick and Young but how long can these guys produce nothing for this team before they take an extended seat.

Did you watch the game today? I don't think Iv ever seen an ump gave that much space off the inside corner.

crazy statistic: it took the dodgers 72 games to win their first 30 games. it took them 37 games to win their next 30

the dodgers keep finding ways to win, even today after they only got a single run off 2 hits. our bullpen has been amazing lately and that was our biggest weakness earlier in the season.

dodgers have now won 14 straight games on the road, 3 shy of the national league record

Puig gets a lot of the credit(and he's been a monster but I haven't heard nearly as much as I thought I would about Hanley turning back into the old Hanley
