Edison Volquez throws a no hitter for the fish. Albert Pujols hits HR 600 and the fan gives back the ball. What a great week. Until the Rays got swept in Seattle.

Scooter Gennett went 4-5 for the Reds vs the Cardinals last night. All four hits were dingers. He had 10 RBIs in that game. 10! The NL record is 12 set in '73 so no cigar there.

More proof that this is another juiced ball year.

:lol:  This? No way. Gennett is hitting .302 in 116 ABs. His slugging is .516 as of today so he;s got decent power but it's gap power only. He's got 7 HRs on the year and got four of those last night. The most he;s ever had in a season was 14 in almost 500 ABs.

 

This isn't proof of juiced balls, it's more likely proof the even a blind dog can find a bone every now and then.

Aaron Judge hits 496-foot HR, longest since tracking began.

I was pretty please with the Rays and Marlins 1st & 2nd round picks last night. I don't understand why Bleacher Report is throwing shade.

This is a pretty interesting (if long) article about the A's and the moneyball draft 15 years sown the road. https://sports.vice....-15-years-later

I just did some sniffing on Baseball Almanac

 

On this day in 1927 Base Ruth had 21 HR

On this day in 1961 Roger Maris had 21 HR

On this day in 2017 Aaron Judge has 22 HR.

 

Not to jinx anything here but....

 

But before we get too excited on this day in 2001 Barry Bonds had 33. Better pick up the pace there Judge!

My third favorite baseball writer believes that the balls are juiced this year and uses science to back the claim. I believe him.

Good weekend.
