I spent a few minutes inventing the sandwich a couple months ago.So, they show the Sox hit leaders on a crawl on the bottom of the screen and it show Vaz has 69. And I think to myself, he’s a catcher. He must not have as many at bats as the guys above him.
And then I think, maybe you could sort of normalize for that by figuring out the percentage of at bats in which he gets a hit so you could compare players.
This is a true story. Probably took me 10 seconds.
Tyler Skaggs was the big force on the Angels getting La Stella the votes.The Angels La Stella just fouled a ball of his kneecap and needed to be carried off the field. Not to celebrate injuries, but this could open a spot for Xander on the All Star team.
The way Sale's season has been going, probably more like 4-1 or 5-1 but hoping for today being the start of a turnaround by Sale back to his dominant self.So the Red Sox have scored 38 runs in their last 4 games. Tomorrow they put Sale on the mound to face the prolific TBD. I'm guessing a 2-1 loss.
