Hasn't Yordan mostly been in the 6-hole and only recently moved up?

No DH has ever won MVP. He may be the first but not this year.
Don Baylor is the closest thing there's ever been to an MVP DH. In 1979 he won it for the Angels while playing 97 games in the OF, 65 as DH and 1 at 1B . He hit 36 HR, drove in 139, scored 120 runs, stole 22 bases and hit .296

Jomboy breakdown of the dodgers-dbacks incident from last night. It was indeed super lame.

Hands down the best part was Dave Roberts not realizing who Robbie Ray was, and losing his *****

I will go out on a limb here and say that if you lead the ML in every offensive + category that you will win your league MVP whether you play in the field or not.

I don't think Roberts knows any pitchers, they are dispensable, like tissues.

very surprising that Ortiz never won an MVP. He led the AL in homeruns and RBI in 2006 and still lost.

Since Monday, the Orioles have scored 16 runs. But given up 22 HR. Nuts.

the Orioles starter tonight is some guy named Aaron Brooks. He will tote a hefty 5.45 ERA to the mound.

his post all-star break ERA is 6.63. He was claimed off waivers (from the A's) the first week of July.

Astros should hammer this guy early and often
I like your optimism and if you keep on calling your shot, with this lineup you're going to be right sooner than later...but last night's O's starter had an ERA of 6.75 in his last 7 starts, so we could score 2 or we could score 22.
So close

the Twins stopped the bleeding tonight against the Indians -- regained 1st place.

the Mariners touched up Charlie M. for 4 runs. That should make JV and Cole first and second in AL ERA.

Giolito is supposed to start Sunday for the White Sox. The 'stros won't face him in Chicago

JD Davis is having a good season with the Mets! Plus he got a walk off last night.

It's fun looking at the box score from last night, where we scored 23 runs on 25 hits.

Then you see 8-9-1 were a combined 2 for 15 and the other 6 guys in the lineup combined for an absurd 23 for 35 (a .657 average!!).

Our "scrubs" that came in mid game went 5 for 6 with 2 RBI and 4 runs scored.

What a fun game!

That's a lot of celebrating over a sac fly in the 8th. But they are the Mets

So I'm in San Diego for vacation and bought a Padres hat in Astros colors, is that sacrilegious or will y'all still accept me as a fan?
