Yasiel Puig has 3 HRs and 7 RBIs today.

He's had 5 HRs and 9 RBIs in the last 2 games.

Huh? The Rockies and Dodgers have both won six of their last 10. One loss means the Rockies are cold?

Reynaldo Lopez with another fine outing. I'm glad he and Giolito turned it around. I'm still stinging at the Kopech injury (thanks, Scribe), tho. Now that he won't be back till 2020 and may not be himself till 2021, it messes with our timeline a bit in the sense that Rodon may need to be moved this off-season since 2021 is his last year under contract. Need to get a high quality lefty SP for him and a 3B. Send him to the Reds for Senzel and a good young lefty if they have one.

Watching the espn Sunday Night Game... with the Dodgers trailing the Cardinals in the 7th, the announcers went into fascinating discussions of the AL versus the NL. They mentioned that there is often this perception that the NL is "AL's junior circuit", but they presented a counter argument that makes a lot of sense.... Obviously the Red Sox are an extremely good team. And obviously the Yankees, Indians and other top teams are top teams. But, the AL has "layups (their term) that don't exist in the NL. The Baltimore Orioles are very bad, maybe historically bad, and have provided many wins for the Yankees and all the other top teams they play. The NL doesn't really have a "layup". An argument can be made for Cincinnati but they are 6-1 against the Dodgers this year.

Also, what wasn't said, but should have been brought up. the NL is 142-132 vs the AL in interleague play this year.

One of my pet peeves. SF Giants won 3 out of 5 and were the most dominant squad since the Yankees. St. Louis has won twice recently and then there's the Cubs. The two leagues have different styles of play and yes the AL is slightly top heavier in marquee franchises.

Miami, SD, Cinncy are just as bad as the Os. There are lay-up teams in both leagues.

You left out perhaps the best team in baseball, Houston. I think it goes something like:
1) Houston
2) Boston
3) Yankees/Indians/A's/Cubs
4) Dodgers/Rockies/Braves/Brewers/Rays/Cardinals

But it's murky to say the least.

Are the Orioles braille unis the single dumbest uni concept in MLB history? Is there anyone that can actually read these uniforms? Do blind people suddenly get some kind of exemption for seeing the uniforms on television (or at the ballpark), simply because they're in braille?

And don't get me started on all the jokes that open up for one of the worst teams in MLB history being the team to introduce this. They write themselves.

Hawk Harrelson will be missed. His last broadcast was today. I loved his outright homerism and hawkisms.

It should also be noted that this is the first season in 14 years in which the NL lead the AL in inter-league play. But yeah, I think it is easy to argue that the AL was a lot more top heavy this year than usual. And while The Red Sox did get to feast on a historically bad Orieles team, they still play in a division that will likely have three teams finish with 90+ wins.

AL is probably better than the NL, i mean you have the Rays who would have the best or second best record in the NL who will miss the playoffs.

NL isnt quite as bad as some say it is, but the AL is a juggernaught to put it likely.

I don't think people appreciate how good the Rays are either.

The Tampa Bay brass chose to keep LHP Colin Poche and 1B Nathaniel Lowe for the stretch run in Triple-A Durham. Poche has a chance to be the American League's Josh Hader next year. He went 6-0 with an 0.82 ERA and had 110 strikeouts in 66 innings this year. I can see the Rays using Poche as a dominant opener or as a late innings shutdown guy. Lowe had a .330/.410/.568 slash line and ranked top five in all of the minors in total bases. These two guys are just the tip of the iceberg of the Rays' talent.

Rays have really good talent. No one is really overlooking them. But it's a wash, rinse and repeat thing for them much like the A's, but without Billy Beane.
They get good, develop their talent and then sell them before the team gets expensive or too expensive.

Their operating strategy will change if the Rays’ proposed ballpark in Ybor City gets approved.

I agree somewhat, but that is a semi large if. Rays and A's seem to be hard luck losers when it comes to stadium/park deals.
