Do Not Sell My Personal Information
There are alot of holes, but there is alot of right too.

The issue with "beating only the mediocre teams" is that its so early in the season. maybe some of the teams are medicore right now because we beat them. 3 or 4 wins against a team right now turns them from good to average because its such a small percentage

And for all our holes we have one of the best rotations and the best bullpen. Hitting is horrible and defense is bad, but if you are going to be good at one thing, be good at pitching.
I'll definitely take our rotation above just about any other team in the bigs... the only rotations I miiiight take over ours would be the Dodgers and Padres.

Well the guy that used to run the place, Ben was one. He ended up getting full media access and got us great info all the time. A couple of people who used to come here were. one was a Cavs scout, but he retired, and the other was close friends to a former GM and had cavs floor seats and we have a few others that have their specialties.
thanks
 
Since it's a late game tonight I decided to take a look around the league. I can't believe the Dodgers are 20-17 despite being fifth in the majors in both runs per game and ERA. Didn't everybody pick them to go something like 120-42 this year? However, they're 10-5 at home and 10-12 on the road so they've played seven more road games.

As bad as Lindor is hitting the Mets are in first place in a weak division.

For a while it looked like some historically bad teams were going to be all right. The Pirates started out 12-12 but have since gone 3-10. The Royals started even hotter, going 16-9 before losing their last 11 games. Their next four games are at the White Sox. Could be a 15-game losing streak by the end of the weekend. (But they're leading the Sox 5-2 in the sixth inning of a 7-inning game. Second game to follow tonight).

The Twins have the worst record in the majors. NOBODY saw that coming. Eddie Rosario must be pretty happy he switched teams.

The Yankees are 20-17 and in third place, just like the Dodgers. The league's two biggest payrolls wallowing in mediocrity. It's still early, though.

The top four teams in the A.L. East are within three games of each other and it's Tampa that's in fourth place. That division is shaping up to be a dogfight. Even the O's are no longer an easy win at 16-21.
Considering how poor the Yanks started, they're looking pretty good. Lindor has played much better recently as well.
 
since this is the Indians/Reds thread - Wade Miley with his first start since no-hitting the good guys - leadoff hitter for Rockies triples - Johnny Vander Meer's record is safe for a while more

Yeah, Lindor hitting .348 in his last 7 with a .448 OBP and .522 SLG. 5 walks/3 Ks.

It's almost like he's a streaky player who has had some massive slumps in his career that we've all witnessed first-hand.

I'm curious to see how the people who jumped on the opportunity to trash him for struggling will respond when he's succeeding.
