Thursday bantering

Toronto Blue Jays v Tampa Bay Rays
The only good thing from yesterday

I don’t want to dwell on our latest loss as it mean i would have to mention the team we were playing and their poxy stadium. But this was the only positive from yesterday:

Ryan Tepera has had surgery to remove loose bodies. (I thought that’s what we did with the roster when we got rid of Brito and Hansen?).

MLB bits

After yesterday’s horrible incident at the Astros v Cubs game Jeff Passan says MLB parks need full protective netting before it’s too late. I wholeheartedly agree.

Eric Wedge has a new job- and thankfully its far away from the Blue Jays....

Carlos Correa’s injury adds to the list of MLB’s weirdest.

Stat of the Day

After just two months of the season, Cody Bellinger is already ridiculous. Look at this:

224 PA, .383/.469/.761, 19 HR, 222 OPS+, 5.2 WAR

Bellinger leads MLB in all three triple-slash categories, and his MLB-best(by far) .504 xwOBA shows us it’s the real deal. And his 12 defensive runs saved as a right fielder put him one behind Lorenzo Cain for the lead among outfielders.

Plays of the Day

Communication is vital in the outfield.

And the A’s commit an evil trick on Angels
