Yeah not even close in the OF. but I do think it's impressive that Kemp has improved enough out there to be replacement level defensively. He was pretty bad last year.

What should I know about this guy?
Quick synopsis...
Quote:


Ferrell, 25, pitched reasonably well for the Marlins in Spring Training, yielding a pair of runs on five hits and five walks with 10 strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings. While the walks were obviously unwelcome, Ferrell did look to have a chance to crack the big league roster. Instead, a case of biceps tendinitis landed him on the injured list and has prevented him from pitching in the Majors at all in 2019.

Ferrell did start a rehab assignment in mid May but had that assignment halted after just four appearances. He rebooted his rehab efforts on June 12 and tossed 4 2/3 shutout innings (no hits, one walk, two strikeouts) before the Marlins cut bait. Ferrell averaged nearly 12 punchouts per nine innings in a combined 51 1/3 frames with the Astros' Double-A and Triple-A affiliates in 2018 but also logged an ugly 5.9 BB/9 mark in the process. Through a total of 10 1/3 rehab innings in 2019, he issued six walks and hit a batter.

the second half of the season is going to feature a heavy, heavy dose of the Angels (39-40) ---- 16 games vs. LAAA. The Angels can't pitch, but they can hit

Just read Yordan is the first player in mlb history with 16 RBI and 7 HRs through 12 games.


I have a feeling we are going to be saying this every week about Yordan.

If he keeps up this trend of hitting 7 HR every 12 games over a 15 season career, he'll finish with over 1,400 HRs

He'll also break HR record per season by Barry Bonds every year of his career and break the all time HR record 8 years from now.

Kemp also appears to be another good locker room guy. We need an analytic for team chemistry

Got to experience my first game at Yankee stadium during Saturday's loss. The stadium was way harder to get into than I expected and the concession lines were freaking slow. Nice stadium and the fans were pretty nice and talkative. Got to sit next to a 70 year old Yankees fan talking about his times going to games watching Mantle play.

Just booked tickets to see my first game in Toronto at the end of August and might be going to Baltimore also in August. Hope I don't make us lose again.

Hard to get into? You get off the train at a stop named "yankee stadium" walk outside and you're at the entry gate to the stadium.

I mean I think that would be ok... TexAgs May complain a bit if he hits a snag and only hits like 5/15 but it will be ok

How about slow to get into, instead of "hard to get into." Security wasn't any different from other stadiums I've been to, but, getting through the lines was the slowest I've seen so far.

I would never want a HR champ that hit them to all fields and had a batting average so high. I'm glad our guys do it the right way, dead pull .200 and striking 200+ times per season.

Gotcha. That makes sense.
Of the 2 NYC ballparks i generally found Citi field to be a better experience in terms of concourse and concessions.

Plan on going to see a game at Yankee Stadium in August (vs CLE). I'm looking forward to it.

Get there as early as possible and go up to the museum. They have an awesome collection of Yankee memorabilia.

We didn't make it to Monument Park but we made it up there and thought it was really cool.

Misleading link title. $8.1 million.

The slot value for the first overall pick is $8.42M, so no one has ever paid full price to their first pick?

29th round pick compensation is a replica ring and an HEB gift cert.

the Pirates' starter tonight is a guy named Trevor Williams.

he's made 10 starts this season for Pittsburgh, but has only been the pitcher of record 3 times: 2-1 with 4.12 ERA.

the Pirates are 7-3 in his starts, so a lot happens in the late innings after his typical 6th inning exit

Astros: Brandon Bielak, RHP (No. 12) -- 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 9 K (Triple-A Round Rock)

Bielak has had his share of struggles since the Astros promoted him to Triple-A Round Rock, but he had his best outing of the season on Monday. The 2017 11th-round pick threw seven shutout innings and struck out nine to earn his first Triple-A victory.
