    Olson hit number 19 last night, game number 50. Should be interesting to see what OF/1B's Hoskins and Olson do next year when given an entire season. I believe Hoskins has Mark McGwire HR potential with a better average to go along with his power.

    Trout now second in WAR, 6.8, in MLB among position players to Altuve 7.59. Incredible that Trout is second despite missing almost 50 games!

    Olson more 4HR's in the last 4 days, hit HR number 23 last night in his 55th game and only 176AB's. And not lost is Cody Bellinger, probably the Dodgers ROY has hit 38 HR's this season as a 21 year old. Bellinger, Rhys Hoskins and Matt Olson star 1B men of the future! Look forward to seeing them again next season as well as in this years playoffs.

    Hey CS, hope you are in good health! The season is almost winding down. Who is your WS pick?

    Olson has a total of 15 homers in the last 21 contests going into today's game. Unreal!

    I'm doing well PHillisFan. I'm 15 months in remission. Thank you for asking. I originally was picking the Nationals, but with their injury issues, I'm thinking the Dodgers may have a shot, especially with Kershaw back and healthy again. But I wouldn't count out the Cubs either. Should be a great WS!

    I am glad to hear you are well! I agree with your assessment although Cleveland could be a headache in the playoffs. They were very close last yr. I would love to see my Cubs repeat.

    It was on this date in 1998, the Orioles' last home game that season, that Cal Ripken decided to end his consecutive games played streak at 2,632. Cal breaking Lou Gehrig's legendary record of 2,130 in 1995 is one of my favorite baseball memories. The home crowd gave him a 22 minute standing ovation, which must be a record in and of itself.

    Gehrig's streak had always been at or near the top of lists of "unbreakable baseball records." It was an incredible achievement by Cal, the greatest ironman of all time. The record becomes official at about the 13:50 mark of this video.

    Cap Ripken jr was a baseball classic. I wish he could have played forever. He seemed like a genuine great guy.

    Scooter Gennett slugged a grand slam in Friday’s loss to the Red Sox.

    Advice: It was his fourth grand slam of the season. Lou Gehrig had a four-homer game in 1932 and four grand slams in 1934, but Gennett is the only player in MLB history to pull off the feat in the same season. Imagine putting Gennett and Gehrig in the same sentence back in March. The surprise slugger is batting .297/.345/.548 with 27 homers and 93 RBI over 133 games this season.

    First MLB anthem kneeling, Bruce Maxwell. At first I thought this guy was white but upon zooming in he appears to be some kind of mystery meat

    Via ESPN?! Lol sounds right up their alley. Legendary the first (mixed?) MLB player to kneel during America 1.0 National Anthem. Goddamned martyr!

    Happy for Gennett was always impressed by him when he was in Milwaukee! He was pushed out for Dominicans with higher upside but Lil Scooter belts out 27 homers this season for bottom dweller Cincinnati . Stellar power for the average sized 2nd baseman, yet nary a peep from the MSM. We seriously need to start our own highlights show. Who's winning the lottery first?!

    Mike Trout has now officially qualified with enough PA's to lead the league in three major categories! He leads in OBP .444, SLG .618, and OPS 1.062. However, it looks like he'll fall short of 100 runs in his 6th consecutive season. He has 87 with seven games to go. He has reached 1,000 hits at 1,035, 687 runs, 200 doubles, 40 triples, and 197 HR's. If not for the injury, he would have went over 200 HR's, 2,000 total bases and 700 runs. At only 25 years old. He will also be number 2 in WAR at age 25, behind the great Ty Cobb.

    Trout hits HR #30 on the year despite missing 1/3 of the season! He has more HRs this year in 385 AB than he had last year in 549 AB. SB #22 and BB #90 on the year also.

    Trout, Judge, or Altuve will be the AL MVP. Trout is an incredible longshot due to his injury, but he's got a shot. He's finished #1 or #2 in MVP voting each of the last 5 years.

    Angels explode in the second inning of tonight's game with 6 runs against the White Sox as Trout hits his 31st HR. His 199th career HR!

    Bryce Harper's back in the lineup for the Nats. Nats finally healthy, should be fun to watch in the playoffs.

    Trout also got 2 Runs for #90 on the year and a BB for #91. He's going to fall just short of 100 on these marks.

    The Colorado Rockies clinched a Wild Card Playoff spot. The National League playoff games should be great viewing.
