Eh, this season has been such a shitshow for me on a personal level, can you really blame me?

The Jays are on pace to set a MLB record for % of runs scored off dingers. Basically, if they don't go long they somehow manage to surrender runs while at bat.

My favorite part was Cespedes having a chat with Puig about it, because he never poses or takes his time rounding the bases after homers. Whiners.

Judge mashes his 25th, but NY blows a 5-1 lead. The AL west owns them.

This has been a no good, very bad past couple weeks for the Yanks - and losing Hick today for 3 to 4 weeks is another body blow.  However, watching Judge and Sanchez spearhead a comeback that came thisclose this afternoon from 7 down was fun to watch.  I think the two have a chance to be the most formidable power duo since Manny/Ortiz.  Not to mention they both give defensive value (one at a premium position).  And they're both much younger and cheaper for the next five years.

Judge and Sanchez are alright, but they're no C&C Bat Factory.

This game tho. 

MC made me turn it off in the second inning and we watched the CFL (like you do) until I saw on Twitter that Bellinger brought our heroes to within one run. And then so much holy shit and a inconsistent umpire. FIVE RUNS on FOUR WILD PITCHES and the Rockies never made a move to pull Ottavino out until after Bellinger hit another homer in the 8th. And then some hot closer on closer action with Kenley's RBI double.

I know, I know. I'm just really disappointed with him right now. 51K/1BB is not living up to my expectations for him. But you're right, we must be there for him as he struggles.

We'll see.  I think both Judge and Sanchez will be slightly, but significantly, better than Seager in the long run - purely offensively I mean (e.g. OPS, wOBA, wRC+, etc.)

I actually have nothing against those guys, I love watching them play. That's saying a lot coming from a Dodger fan, because fuck the Yankees. But in the long run Sanchez is a catcher, and it's rare for catchers to keep up that type of offensive pace, especially the power numbers. If he's gonna keep hitting like he's hitting now he's probably gonna have to be moved to 1B, LF, or DH. And Aaron Judge is a full two years older than Seager, and four years older than Bellinger. All four look to be headed for great careers, but if I could only choose one of them, it's Seager.
