It's pretty stupid that the mets can put together like 70% of a very good good team, with just (basically all of) the bullpen being the only real issue , yet they're the 2nd worst team in the NL, meanwhile half the teams in the league didn't try (or claim to try) to build a winning team, and some of those teams are like 10 games up on the Mets

The Diamondbacks sold everything they had except for Zack Grienke. They are better than the Mets.
The Pirates clearly were not buying and just scrappling together a team. They're better than the mets.
Ditto, Rangers.

This isn't a coincidence or bad luck. It's about not knowing how to manage the assets you have. Even on a budget.

I hate listening to Astros commentary team every time they have a dirty play.
Donny: Are they gonna hurt us, Walter?
Walter: No, Donny. These men are cowards.
That didn't look like a dirty play to me. Maybe a reckless or careless play, but Marasnick's reaction both on and off the field suggests it wasn't dirty.

I just saw it. I think he's just trying to cover his ass. It was dirty, imo.

PETE ALONSO

HOME RUN DERBY

Vlad may have had more homers (and rounds to do so) but Pete got the strategy and pacing game down perfect

Bryce being heavily used in all the local ads and especially the banners in Cleveland is hysterical.

Walter: No, Donny. These men are cowards.

alonso wouldve been MVP if the NL won/ gallo didnt hit that homer. Only player with 2 RBIs. oh well. Still a great night for him with the big hit, couple nice defensive plays and a stolen base.

current leading candidates imo
NL
MVP - Bellinger > Yelich (sort of close)
CY - Ryu > Castillo (not that close)
ROY - Alonso > Soroka > Tatis (Hard to compare pitchers and hitters for this award)

AL
MVP - Trout (no one close)
CY - Verlander > Morton > Cole > Giolito (this is extremely tight imo)
ROY - Lowe (no one close, the AL rookies arent good)

No mention of Scherzer for Cy? I think Ryu definitely has the lead, but Scherzer is Scherzer. He looks like he may have another outstanding year.
