    Belated note: Ji Man Choi, very briefly the Yankees' first baseman last year in the immediate aftermath of the Chris Carter disaster, hit a grand slam Saturday to give the Milwaukee Brewers the lead in what turned out to be a 12-3 blowout win over the Phillies.

    http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/2...ys-ji-man-choi says Choi had an eventful day yesterday. First he was sent down to Colorado Springs. Then Milwaukee changed their mind and traded him to Tampa Bay for Brad Miller, so Choi will be at the Yankees from Thursday through Sunday.

    I agree. Most hockey and soccer plays don't result in goals. Basketball has statistics affected by a player's role, including how many shots he takes and how his height and/or position make him a great rebounder, point guard, or something else. In baseball, a team having the top three home run hitters would be hard but hypothetically possible. In basketball, a team couldn't have the top three rebounders because there are a limited amount of rebounds. Football has so many positions that have their own statistics that it makes it hard to decide on an overall best player if you give all positions a chance, unlike the Heisman that almost always goes to a QB or RB. Furthermore, football box scores do not automatically list every player and how much he played like other sports do. A defensive player without any tackles isn't listed, and offensive linemen aren't listed unless they do something unusual like recover a fumble.

    Baseball also has statistics splits that other sports don't have.

    The Brewers obviously not a "what have you done for me lately organization" as they've trade Ji-Man to Rays.

    edit- smh I should have read Evans post above me

    the rest is just details.

    what in the sam hill happened to our good friend Jorge Mateo? After hitting to a 133 wRC+ with Oakland after the trade, he's slashing .208/.249/.333 over 222 at-bats in AAA. Yikes.
    On the other hand, you have different fingers.

    Maybe that tear he went on at Tampa was the aberration. He had underwhelming performance before the trade, too.

    Robinson Cano, former Yankee and lover of those special Dominican milkshakes, will lose his job at 2nd base to Dee Gordon when he returns, at least for the stretch run and remainder of the season and if they make the postseason.

    Richard Bleier, who is 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA in Baltimore's bullpen, hurt his arm and might need Tommy John surgery. Bleier had a 1.96 ERA with Yankees in 2016 and a 1.99 ERA with Baltimore in 2017, so if his season is over his first three ERAs will be very close. He's the only pitcher with at least 20 innings and an ERA under 2.00 in 2016, 2017, and 2018. In a time when home runs are up, he has allowed only 6 home runs in 118 1/3 career innings. He has the third best WAR on Baltimore behind Machado and Dylan Bundy.

    Edit: Bleier has a lat injury.

    Former big-leaguer Kevin Brown thwarts alleged mail thieves at gunpoint

    Former major-league pitcher Kevin Brown reported to police that his mail had been stolen from his home in Macon, Ga. The 53-year-old then took matters into his own hands.
    Brown hid in a neighbor's yard and waited for the culprits to return, and return they did. Brown caught two men, who were later arrested, and held them at gunpoint until police deputies arrived, officers told Laura Corley of the Miami Herald.

    Yeah, I'd probably stay away from Kyle Farnsworth's box as well. Don't think I'd sniff arounds Scherzer's, either.

    Today should be named Francisco Cervelli concussion day. For the second consecutive year, he went on the concussion disabled list on June 22. He also was on the concussion disabled list from June 7 to 14 last year.

    With a name that means "brains" to begin with, he should be more careful about bruising them.

    Here's your July Dustin Fowler performance update:

    (through 143 AB) .246/.280/.396 (84 wRC+)

    45.4% (!!!) hard contact, 15.7% soft contact.

    Seems like he's due for some positive regression.

    He is also a rookie coming off an entire lost season due to significant injury.

    Cave was never with the Yankees in MLB.

    Ian Kennedy was activated from the disabled list, pitched 3 innings last night, and went back on the disabled list.
