A quirky contender is leaving two high-powered franchises in the rearview with an arsenal of unconventional tactics. The Tampa Bay Rays entered play on Monday with a 12-4 record, 5.5 games ahead of the New York Yankees and six games ahead of the Boston Red Sox in the American League East. Their plus-38 run differential paces both leagues.

I had to look it up, because the Marlins had a bowl game. Apparently it moved to Dallas and is now the Frisco bowl. Because people would rather go to Dallas than Miami in December.

The Reds pitching staff is playing great. It is the hitters letting them down. If they could get to league average in hitting, then they could be dangerous.


Speaking of hitting, without Bellinger the Dodgers hitting average would be in the lower half of the league. Their record would probably be at or below 500.

The Reds are your typical modern baseball team,homerun or strikeout. I wish real baseball would come back instead of home run derby most games.

Part of the problem is the modern day analytics and the defensive shifts that are driven by them. Look at Rizzo and the number of singles and doubles he loses to the shift. About the only way to beat it is to hit it out of the park. Sure Rizzo can sacrifice some power and hit it the other way but that won't entirely replace the number of hits the shift takes away

I agree, not nearly enough small ball or running anymore. And the DH is an abomination I hope never comes to the NL.

Shohei Ohtani made his season debut tonight for the Angels after off-season Tommy John surgery...he won't be pitching this season and will be a full time DH...I'm not sure why the Angels don't just shut him down completely until next season but hey it's the Angels

Multiple reasons
1) Ohtani signed with the Angels because the Angels promised him a 2-way role, just the Angels honoring their pledge.
2) According to the doctors, acting as a DH poses minimal risk to the TJ surgery and may actually help with preventing scar tissue buildup

I don't know if they 'promised' him...I think the eventual plan is to make him either a hitter or pitcher, not both...as far as hitting posing minimal risk, if that's what the doctors say then fine but minimal risk is not the same as no risk...it seems like a very unusual situation as very rarely do pitchers also hit as much as him...so this is pretty much unchartered waters...if he gets hurt again then the Angels are never going to hear the end of it...seems like they want Ohtani out there because he's a money draw for fans and sponsors

News reports at the time of his signing said he signed with the Angels because the Angels assured him that he would be allowed to both pitch and DH, other teams were more hesitant.

The traditional rivalry between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will take a radical twist when they meet in London next month: They will play on artificial turf for the first time in their rivalry, covering more than 2,200 games.

Someone call the bomb squad. Twins hit 8 HRs in 16-7 rout of the Angels. That's good wood.

They're a lot of fun to watch. I'm trying to be cautious tho. Anytime we get our hopes up too high, the bottom falls out. Lol.

I thought the Dodgers were going to take a step back this season but they're playing as well as anyone...Twins are a great feel good story but we all know how this is going to end- loss in the wild card or divisional series against the Astros, Yankees or Red Sox...
