Wyatt Langford is so fucking awesome. Batting 2nd today for the defending champs, casually triples to left-center in a key spot.

He is just incredible. The young talent in this league right now... is it better than any time since... when? Ever, maybe?

Kike Hernandez did the on-field interview during Cardinals/Dodgers.

His pitchcom was turned up so loud it was coming through on the broadcast. That was a first.

Nolan Jones just cost the Rockies 3 runs by turning a routine single (that granted would have loaded the bases) into a wall ball Little League Inside the Parker.

Soon to be 5-0 Pirates touched up Matt Barnes today
I was wondering if there was a candidate for Team Hipster in 2024, and I think we have found them. Oneil Cruz! Jared Jones! Henry Davis! Paul Skenes at some point!

I can't fully get behind them, personally, but yeah, if someone out there wants a wagon to jump on, you could do a lot worse.

In the Mets game, Tigers led 5-0 in the tenth. Shelby Miller came on and pitched the bottom of the tenth and got credited with the save. Is there a new save rule for the stupid runner?

I looked at a couple of sites and don't see Miller or anyone else getting credit for a save in that game.

Those are two pretty terrible pictures to use in a side-by-side comparison. Different angles and depth of focus. They could be taken the same day and give the appearance that he's bigger in one than the other.

Bottom of the 6th in Houston just featured a catcher's interference followed shortly thereafter by Altuve kicking a grounder as a baserunner for the third out.

It’s cliche to say now but that Dodgers lineup is just insane. Mookie-Ohtani-Freeman-Will Smith-Muncy to start things off. It’s unfair
