We should get extra votes in this weeks AP voting for running up the score.

Was thinking Fernando did as well but it was just Cy Young and RoY.

350 batting avg with 30 homeruns is a rare feat. That would be worth MVP talk, imo

Enjoy it my brothers.

Enjoy it.

This **** doesn't come around often. Just sit back and roll in it like a pig in fresh mash.

George Brett won the MVP In 1980 &!played only 117 games, but he batted .390 & had 66 XBH 118 RBI and was a GG caliber 3b. WAR was not a thing yet but he had a 9.4.

It's also incredibly hard for a DH to win it all even if he plays a full season.

That was fun.

Agree with a poster above. Enjoy this team...we remember what it's like to be on the other side of beatdowns like this.

For everyone not keeping up, here's his current line, after playing for 2 months.

192 PAs, 45 games
.352/.432/.743. LeMahieu leads in BA at .340, Yelich leads MLB with a .705 SLG, Trout leads in OBP at .439, Yelich leads OPS at 1.133. Alvarez is at 1.175
wRC+ 202, Trout is at 185 and Yelich is second at 180
17 HR, 30 R, 52 RBI
Before tonight his OPS+ was 189. Trout is at 188

If he qualified, he would lead the majors in basically every + stat. AVG+, OPS+, SLG+, OPS+, wRC+, BABIP+. He would be top 4 in ISO+

Embarrassing that we gave up a safety to the Ravens. Good win for the Texans though.

Did we really score 23 runs and only leave 2 guys on base? Is that stat accurate?

Alvarez had a chance for a home run cycle with a grand slam in 7th, a 2-run shot in the 9th, and a solo homer in the 1st. He had two on in the 6th, but grounded into a double play.

What an incredible rookie season!

Y'all notice the fan who got the Alvarez Grad Slam ball was wearing a Texas Rangers hat.

Good for him. Gotta have some happiness in life.

He'd already be leading the league in walks if he played for the Orioles but what are they going to do, put him on for Correa & Yuli?

They can't walk him, so he's going to keep on mashing!!!

No DH has ever won MVP. He may be the first but not this year.

Now leading the league in run differential at +185.

Unreal.

They cropped out the score! That's ok O's - we've been there.

i mean i get everyone else is dangerous as well, but who is regularly in the 6 hole and how often are they producing runs? i mean at some point walking him is going to be better than giving up a run nearly a third of the time he bats.

The other problem is he's usually coming up with other guys on base so there aren't a lot of places to put him.
