He has 5 TVs supposedly, but they had almost no time to figure out something appropriate. Maybe they figured with an 83 inch TV, he'd actually be able to see what was going on.

Only one of the ten teams in the two Western divisions is over .500, the Dodgers are 13-11.

It’s a Jared Jones day!

Two easy perfect innings. Pumping 100.
My god. He just took Turang's soul and his ankles on that slider. That was hysterical.

I'm sure the replay will make the rounds for a long time on social media. Turang was expecting a 100mph fastball... and instead he got a slider that fell off the end of the planet and he tried to bend out of the way and half swung as he fell down. Even Turang had to just laugh.

Edit: Through 4 IP, Jones has given up 1 hit, struck out 6, and gotten 17 Swinging Strikes on 48 pitches. Fastball sitting 99. This kid is an electric factory.

I wish he'd have faced the Red Sox. Some of the swings would have been hysterical

The White Sox are being shutout again.
Now on track for a -574 run differential. Not quite the historic start the A's had last year (they were at a -771 pace through 21 games, but ultimately heated up late season to finish at a mere -339), but still in contention to relieve the '32 Sox of the modern era title.

Manny Machado was just placed on the paternity leave list. Checks out that he was... uh... productive during the ASB.

Not quite 90%… Santander was a fringe Cleveland prospect taken in the Rule 5 draft after his first season in Hi-A. The only minor league development time he spent with the Orioles was about a half-season the year after they acquired him and could option him.

Ah my bad. 7 out of 9 and the ace pitcher is pretty, pretty good though.

Mike Trout is the first MLB player to hit 10 HRs this year, remarkably he has only 13 RBIs.

Snell's disastrous offseason has morphed into an even more disastrous regular season, where he has sucked and is now injured. If he needs time to get right again, he will be looking at hitting the market following a very mediocre, easily replaceable type of season. Henry might still be a giant cheapskate, I dunno, but at least his team is somewhere between super lucky and actually good at not stepping on veteran SP landmines.

Monty though... [sigh]

Did KC just gamesmanship their way to a win? 2-1 final in 5 innings with a burnt out pen, but it hasn't rained in KC for an hour.
