    Mays, Ruth, Foxx and Mantle didn't do it until they were 24. ARod was 25. Griffey didn't hit 50+ until he was 27.

    This is the guy that got an 80 hit tool from some evaluators in the minors. He has a chance to be one of the best of all time. If this kid continues to work in the off seasons like he did last year.......
    Lol when I read that on ESPN, I couldnt help but SMH. Baseball has too many meaningless stats.

    I donít even think there were any evaluators that gave him less than an 80 hit tool.
    Legit the best hitting prospect of all time imo. I would kiss AA on the mouth for that parting gift.

    Itís impressive, but it sounds even more impressive before you realize that 4game series are rare and even more rare historically.

    I think we need a little perspective. Last night was a good place to pitch Nate. He looked really good on the three batters he got, especially the game ending strike out. If we have big leads I want to see him and Merriweather get some opportunities. Romano gave up a couple gopher balls in the past week also. I don't think they used much breaking stuff on Sanchez and Voit, so my sense was they thought they could overpower them. His slider on the last batter looked filthy.

    A little note on our playoff odds, on August 28th we had a 4.4% chance to make playoffs, today we are 51% per fangraphs. Baseball reference expects the jays to win 94 games and gives them a 59.8% chance of postseason. Sports club stats says 66.3%.

    Usually just not a fan of it as it puts certain things on a pedestal when it shouldnt be. Gotta think this has happened to multiple teams before. Or like how for basketball they highlight records at MSG when the same thing happens in other arenas before.

    Here's something crazy. Vlad Jr could win the triple crown, get his team in the playoffs, and he might not get a single 1st place vote for MVP.

    Weird week so far. Sweep the Yankees but Ray loses to Baltimore.

    We should still win the next 2 though.

    Seems like Montoyo gave up on this one . Otherwise he wouldn't have put Saucedo in for that long and also I wouldn't have put Merryweather in.

    The playoff thing probably doesnt sway much. The triiple crown thing might. I saw the predictions and pretty much everyone has Ohtani winning clean but thats because Vlad doesnt have the triple crown atm. Vlad gotta do something historic to supplant Ohtani (who to be fair shpuld probably win MVP anyway).

    Never seen an inning like that before. That was crazy. What a beating!

    I thought after last night this series was going to go sideways on us. Gotta lock down the series with a W tomorrow.
