Yankees have outscored Toronto 31-7 yesterday and today, and they are just in the 6th inning.

The Yanks have scored 31 runs in back to back games?  Geez.

Hays line drive was about one foot to the left of the foul pole and the announcers didn't even mention it.

Wow, great off-balance throw by Severino to nab Freeman trying to move up a base.    Dumb play by Freeman, too.

The Oriole defense evolved from bad to good in the span of a half-inning just now.

In 2018, the Orioles faced 18 teams and won the season series from 2 of them:  Atl (2-1), and Mets (3-1).

In 2019, the Orioles faced 20 teams, and won the season series from 1 of them:  the Angels (4-3).

This year, there were only 9 teams on the Orioles' schedule.  They have already won the season series from 2 of them:  Washington (4-2), and Philly (3-0).   This game will determine the season series with Atlanta.   In addition, the Orioles could still win the season series from Tampa (up 3-2 with 5 remaining games) and Boston (up 4-3 with 3 games remaining).

And there it is.   We win the season series vs the Braves, and have won as many season series against the 9 teams we played this year as we did against the 38 teams we played the last two years combined.

We could still win a couple more.

And we finish 11-9 vs the National League.

Lot of information coming tomorrow on prospects of keeping next Friday night interesting.  

Dang the Blue Jays beating the Yankees last week - our run differential now better than theirs.

    • Yeah...in the minors. I don’t know anything about the guy, but if his defense is bad, he’s not really a utility guy, because utility guys by definition are glove-good at multiple positions. If he hits really well, he’s a 1B/DH type, and if he doesn’t hit well, he’s nothing. I just checked his stats at BBR and his D at both positions is poor.
    • What constitutes blazing? .400 OBP AND ~.900 OPS each of the last two years is pretty good. 
    • Me either but I voted Rom and Smith.
    • Does anyone know where to get minor league team home and away splits?  A quick perusal of Ashville hitters 2019 splits only reinforced the idea that Vavra 's 2019 numbers were possibly inflated due to a favorable home park.

    • You are right about the hours played each day. It is a big part of the culture on the islands. I have been coaching kids for the last 15 years in Central Florida. Like Drungo said, kids have more options and distractions in the US. It can be tough to get a kid to put the work in away from the field when we only practice two days a week in the younger ages. The higher end travel teams do not practice in the high school years, not at all. They can't because their kids are from all over the state, or even the nation. They show up and play for a week to ten days and go home until the next tournament. Meanwhile, the DR kids are at a Baseball Academy year round for 2-3 years before they sign a contract. It really isn't a level playing field, developmentally. There are a few places where you can go to a high school that is a baseball academy, TNXL is one here in Altamonte Springs, Florida. TNXL is run by the Scorpions organization.  More kids in Florida play baseball than many Northern states, but the burnout rate is high in Florida as well. Year round baseball, or any sport for that matter, is not a good thing long term. Overuse injuries, such as all of the elbow and shoulder issues for pitchers are a direct result of this. College coaches all want to know what other sports a kid plays. The three sport stars are discouraged from playing three sports. Football is still king in Florida. Baseball also does not develop athleticism, although it demands it. So you have to play explosive movement sports, and/or train at a complex to develop the athleticism. That gets expensive, along with everything else you have to do to have a chance. My son worked out at the same place that Ryan Mountcastle and Blake Bortles worked out at. Excellent results.  The gap is closing with the proliferation of indoor facilities. Kids can work on their skills year round now. Seeing more kids from Pennsylvania in recent years who play the game at a very high level. That is a very good thing IMO.
