You might have noticed I didn’t post yesterday. Today might be a little light as well. Work and life just getting the better of me right now, hopefully we’ll get back to normal soon.
Just to remind you, though, the MLB season is coming to a close, and several of our rookies (see sidebar) are in dogfights to make the playoffs. Not the
Devil Rays guys, of course, but the rest of them. Pedroia is in, but Braun’s Brewers are starting to falter. C.B. Young and Kouzmanoff are battling to see which can take the division – leaving the wild card to the other. Unless, of course, the Rockies and T3 add to their epic ten-win streak and snake it away. Whichever scenario happens, we’ll be able to root for at least one of these guys, maybe two. Of course, the whole Phillies/Mets drama could derail that, but I’m being optimistic.
Sadly, Josh Hamilton is injured and will be out for the rest of the season, but his numbers while healthy were admirable indeed. Pence was a stud for Houston, but the team was so bad, most of his effort was completely wasted – very few runs or RBIs despite all of the hitting he did.
I’ll keep an eye on the race this week, and when the season is over and all stats are in, I’ll check out which rook won each category we tracked this year.
