    We've also had a ton of injuries during and before that and Roberts hasn't been playing to win for a while. That's also a pretty selective number of games to focus on (since it includes a short stretch of bad play and so isn't representative). We're 11-5 this month and were 17-11 in August. That's a .636 winning percentage during that time, which is right on par with what our winning percentage has been all season. Those numbers indicate that despite the injuries, our play hasn't really been any different.

    I remember Gibby's homerun and Steve Sax pushing Tracy Woodson out of the way when Kirk was crossing home plate so he could be the first person to greet him. Sax was my favorite player until I realized the man was one arrogant *******.

    Yes, I am embarrassed for him for his epic collapse once he bought into the MVP hype and the fact that when the pressure is on heís a choker .. whatís so hard to understand about that?

    Friedman says he's "optimistic" that Jansen will be closing games in October. That right there tells he won't be.

    I think they've been slowly moving in the direction of not having Jansen close games (or at least not as a default option). I think the way they are handling it is actually very diplomatic, which we can afford to do because of the comfortable lead, where they keep giving him chances to right the ship, but eventually, the proof is in how he performs. Although he's looked better I think it's pretty clear at this point that there are better options and unless he finishes with an amazing final week of the season he probably won't be the closer come the first round.

    Cody Bellinger's OPS by month:

    March/April: 1.397
    May: .998
    June: .967
    July: .952
    August: .918
    September: .809


    It keeps on decreasing with each passing month.

    Will Smith is batting just .136 since the beginning of the Yankees series (Aug. 23).

    Of course it did...it's called regression to the mean. He was on an unsustainable pace.

    Again, similar too Bellinger. Smith was on an untenable pace. The league has adjusted to him and now it's up to him to adjust himself. It was never a question of if, but of when.

    Those are the splits for each month, not the seasonal progression. His OPS for the season is 1.031, which is largely a product of that torrid April that he had.
