What are the Yankees feeding Urshela?  Or any of their other, violently overachieving offensive players?  These guys are redefining the concept of "career years."

Whatever it is, I can assure you it's undetectable. 😀 Why do they get to have all the fun?

I'm just hoping that the clock strikes 12, and these guys revert to their former selves, around the time the postseason starts.

..or maybe just a natural testosterone booster like Ashwagandha. It actually works, too. Pretty well. I use it and notice a difference.

I smell BS with these Yankee hitters.  They should have a stat like OPS+ for a guy relative to his career stats to that point.  100 would be exactly in line with how he has done previously, above 100 is exceeding career averages, below 100 is falling below.  Not sure how to measure it yet, but each of these damn hitters would be 150 or higher.  Reminds me of Shawn Chacon and Aaron Small in 2005.....

Severino's overall numbers this year still look good, but he hasn't been very good since the break. Needs to make an adjustment back to the league.

Severino leaving runners in scoring position in each of his two at bats.  Needs to hit a ball and extend a rally.  His at bats have been Davis-esque

.672 OPS post all star break for Severino.

I have no evidence of this, but I like to think that the NYYs' Mike Ford is a close relative of Lew Ford.

I do have evidence of the fact that Ynoa can't avoid throwing the ball over the center of the strike zone.

Kahnle blew saves in each of his last two appearances against the Orioles (May 23 and August 5.)

Looks like Boone wanted to get him into a situation where he couldn't blow another one.

    • Houston has also been able to acquire arms late in the draft or cheaply in the international market and develop them into trade assets. I'm prepping for Rule 5 draft stuff and it's unbelievable how many good arms they have in the minors that came out of nowhere (10+ round pick or older international signees). They all throw hard and miss bats. 
    • Hopefully the Nats finish this thing off today.  They have gone I think 81-40 since starting 19-31.  That is remarkable.  The Cardinals do what they always do in October....overachieve.  Thankfully, they are about to get stuffed by the much better team.  This will be a really good WS matchup regardless of who comes out of the AL. 
    • Eh, I don't really buy that in this case.  Liberatore is a lefty, has better mechanics, and more projection remaining, so I think there is a fair case for Liberatore then and now. It's really close though, Rodriguez is the better pitch at the moment, but no one really cares who is the better pitcher at 19 in low A ball. 
    • The old Liberatore vs Rodriguez debate. I think most “experts” will always try and rank Liberatore slightly higher than Rodriguez because they all criticized the O’s for “reaching” for Rodriguez. 
    • Someone pointed out before that Vaughn got pitched around his last year in NCAA. Let’s see what happens to Torkelson when/if he gets that treatment.  I don’t see how we could draft Torkelson.  Even if we trade Mancini, Mountcastle is still likely a 1B.  When team building I don’t think you pencil in your future 1B and DH spots first.   I’d like to see us draft a bat, but if the best SP is available then I’m open to that. I think that bats are safer picks and would help the system more.  Hopefully Detroit makes a mistake at 1:1 and we get the player Elias thinks is #1 overall. Lots of baseball to play till the draft. 
    • HOU got burned with taking Pitchers Appel and Aiken high. HOU has been grow the bats and buy the arms since then. Using their prospect bats to acquire proven SP.  I do think bats are safer picks over pitchers. Last draft we took lots of bats compared to pitchers. It could’ve been lots of factors at play, but I think it was a strategic decision.  Not having the number one pick in next years’ draft means we’ll likely be deciding on the 2nd best SP, Torkelson, or other NCAA and HS bats.    
    • I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
