    Re: Alternate Universe NYYFans.com Simulation

    Week 7, coming atcha.

    Game Action

    - Alex Reyes holds Miko to 2 hits in 8 scoreless, though Kimbrel does his best to blow it for the Lous in the 9th
    - Battle of the bullpen as the Ligers and the Punks rack up 17 runs in the first 5 innings, then none in the last 4 between them. The Punks edge it 9-8
    - Hader slams the door for his ninth Pitches save against the Romanians, boasting a 0.59 ERA
    - Formal Ferrets walk it off against the Jacks in the 12th
    - Ronald Acuna, Jr. hulks out and goes yard 3 times as the Stirrups rack up a 19-2 victory over Planet Express
    - 10 runs in an inning for Rookie Mistakes, with Matt Olsen driving in five through the game, as they waltz past the Buckeyes
    - The Cole train rattles on as he throws 8 IP, 4 H, 12 K to lead the Ferrets over the Sluggos
    - Gausman gets within one out of a CGSO for the Punks against the Woodies, but the game goes to extras and Jose Abreu wins it with a long ball
    - Sluggos, relieved not to be facing Gerrit Cole, rally with one run in the 8th and another in the 9th to squeak it over the Ferrets
    - Omar Navaerez connects to send a 3-run shot out of the park as the Best Team walk it off against Michigan
    - The Lous rally for 5 in the eighth and ninth to tie it against the Stirrups, only to have their hearts broken in the 11th as the Hobbled Men push four across the plate
    - The Blasts have no mercy with an 11-run eighth inning as Planet Express subsides 14-1
    - Trailing 6-2 in the bottom of the seventh, the Lous tally runs in every remaining inning, with Hanser Alberto (?!) hitting his first homer of the year

    Transactions and Injury Report
    - Fisticuffs Alert! Eric Thames and Sonny Gray will both miss time after a brawl. As Thames will miss 3 days (hitting .209 with 10 homers) and Gray 6 (4-0 with a 3.02 ERA), both the Sons and the Ligers respectively may wish to appeal
    - Mystery Alert! The Stirrups' closer Iglesias is taking an 'indefinite' amount of time off for "personal issues".
    - Buckeye Nation are now Happless, as J.A.'s release was confirmed
    - Romanian Yankees extend Kris Bryant for 3 years, $60m
    - David Price is ready to fire from the mound for Michigan
    - We can't say the same for Lucas Giolito, who'll miss the rest of the Romanian regular season
    - Ottavino will start to confound minor-league hitters on his rehab assignment
    - Gleyber Torres is out for 5 weeks with shoulder bursitis, which won't please the Lumberjacks
    - The Stirrups are getting Paxton back soon, as he'll appear for their AAA team
    - Hunter Pence announces his retirement from a career of looking like he's trying very hard but never been coached

    Here are your updated standings:



    Ferrets, Ligers, Romanians, and Woodies are in pole position, thought the first two by only half a game. The Blasts are riding a 6-game win streak, with the Express their mirror image, trying to snap a losing string. The Ligers have by far the best run differential with a +63. And the Woodies have an interesting weakness - they're 23-10 against righties, but only 4-7 when they face a southpaw. And by Pythag record, the Blasts are 7 games under their expected record - they 'should' be 27-17.

    Moustakas retains a large lead in the HR race, 20 to Moncada's second-best 16. Hader, Kimbrel, and Minter share the lead in saves with 11 each. Rizzo now has the most RBIs with 42 for the Woodies.

    I also played around a bit with some of the logos to make for easier navigation, and because I found a great icon for the Ligers:

    Re: Alternate Universe NYYFans.com Simulation

    Week 8, come on down.

    Game Action

    - The bottom of the 13th is lucky for the Lous as they stroll off against The Best Team
    - The Lumberjacks have a closer called Drew Steckenrider, and he's got 8 saves with a 1.62 ERA. I thought that was kind of neat. He got one against the Stirrups, is the point here.
    - Carpenter and Tatis, Jr. combine with the best performances of the day for an 11-3 Ferrets win over the Buckeyes. They combine to go 9-12 with 4 2Bs, 2 HRs, and a 3B
    - Wolverines enjoy a walkout against the Pitches while Moustakas hits his 21st out of the park
    - Ross Stripling fires a 5-hitter for the Lous against the Best Team. What? That's a thing.
    - Gerrit Cole is beaten! He allows only one run, but the Buckeyes blank the Ferrets thanks to Kenta Maeda. They take the series thanks to 8.1 IP by Joe Musgrove the next day
    - 5-5 is a pretty good day at the office for Howie Kendrick and the Wolverines
    - Jose Berrios throws a 2-hitter for with Woodies against the Sluggos. See, Ross? That's the idea.
    - Empire tie it in the top of the 9th, Buckeyes untie it immediately afterwards for a 7-6 win thanks to Kevin Pillar's second tater
    - Robinson Chirinos one-ups him with a grand slam in the 10th as the Lumberjacks take advantage of the Rookie Mistakes

    Transactions and Injury Report
    - Yasiel Puig has played his way off the Romanian Yankees; he's been waived. OPS of .850+, mind.
    - Adam Ottavino has made his return for the Fishermen, and Mookie Betts is back at his Mookiest for the Sons of Pitches
    - J.A. Happ has caught on with the Marauders for the league minimum
    - The Rookie Mistakes bid a tearful farewell to Max Scherzer as he journeys to the Injured List. Buck up, lads, it's just for a couple of weeks

    Here's your updated standings:



    No change to your division leaders, but the Blasts are riding a 5-game win streak and are back at .500. Andrelton Simmons has hit a slump and Jeff McNeil has passed him in the batting title race (.380). And Shohei Ohtani has a live 14-game hit streak that will stay intact for a quite a while! Because he's on the injured list for the next 4 months. Boo.

    EDIT: Only 2.5 games separates first from last in the Mantle Division! It's 15.5 in the DiMaggio Division.

    Re: Alternate Universe NYYFans.com Simulation

    Week 9 and everything's . . . all right.

    Game Action
    - Crazy game at the home of the Best Team, where the Punks score 6 in the top of the 9th to go up 6-4, then Soler hits a walk-off 3-run bomb to win it for the Besties. Hiriano gives up the deciding run
    - Gerrit Cole rebounds to pick up his league-leading 9th win for the Ferrets
    - Jose Quintana hurls eight scoreless for the Blasts against the Buckeyes
    - Rookie Mistakes put the Sons of Pitches out of their misery with a 14th-inning win. Next day, the Pitches take the hint and win it in the bottom of the 9th with a 7-run rally when down 5
    - Fishermen prove superior to mammals with a 10th inning walk-off against the Ferrets
    - The Ligers' Simmons continues a stellar year with a 5-5, 2 2B, HR day to maul Miko's Marauders
    - The Stirrups take a look at a 0-6 deficit against the Firesale, casually tie it up in the top of the 9th, then throw it all away in the next half-inning as Jairo Diaz blows it again
    - Gary Sanchez's second homer of the day is a late one, but the bottom of the 12th is good timing. He pulls the Stirrups up over the Ligers 5-4.
    - Evil Empire 9th inning comeback over the Wolverines? Don't mind if I do. The win seems to fire up the Empire, who win again 17-1 the day after. Loiasaga's first outing as starter after being replaced as closer went well
    - Freddie Freeman strolls round the bases then jogs off into the clubhouse as his walkoff give the Stirrups another win over the Ligers
    - Ferrets get Punked as they give up 4 in the last two innings to go down 9-8

    Transactions and Injury Report
    - Gio Gonzalez' 7.01 ERA has gotten him released from the Wolverines. A few weeks later, they give up on Jon Lester. The cull of the veterans has begun
    - The Woodies will miss out on 3 weeks of Trea Turner after he tore a hamstring stealing all those bases
    - The Empire lose the same amount of Masahiro Tanaka's time due to a strained shoulder. But on the bright side, they just shovelled cash at Francisco Lindor: 8 years, $202m.
    - Matt Carpenter's fractured foot forces frustration for Formal Ferrets

    The standings, you ask?



    The Mantle Division continues to be a clusterfudge, with the Stirrups taking top spot this week. The Empire and Ligers continue to claw away at each other, with the Evil lead only 0.5 an evil game. The Woodies and Buckeyes both have 5-game win streaks to protect.

    The Ligers enjoy a couple of league leaders with Simmons' .396 the top batting average and Christian Yelich owning the best OPS at 1.125. Gary Sanchez is sending them home with 49 RBIs and A.J. Minter has saved 15 games.

    Week 10? Week 10.

    Game Action

    - Asdrubal Cabrera goes 5-6 with 6 RBI as the Ferrets tear into Planet Express, 20-1. 13 runs in the top of the 9th seems needless, frankly
    - Not to be outdone, the Ligers eviscerate the Rookies, 21-3. Eight homers for them, and the Mistakes have to use 11 different pitchers, including 3 position players
    - The next day, the Rookies wallop the Ligers 10-7, and Planet Express chase down the Ferrets 11-7. Some weird symmetries here
    - To end the series, Ferrets chew up the Express, 15-5. That's 59 runs in 3 games, by my count
    - Blasts walk it off in the 11th over the Pitches
    - Gerrit Cole reaches his 10th win, and now has a 10-2 record with a minuscule 1.89 ERA
    - Hector Neris has been a good pickup for the Firesale, and now has 10 saves with a 2.55 ERA
    - Keston Hiura battles out a 2 HR day with 3 walks, but can't stop the Mistakes tripping up against Michigan
    - A dramatic extra-innings series sees Miko plate 1 in the top of the 10th, the Blasts tie it in the bottom with a Shed Long double, then a single for Francisco Meija walks them off in the 12th
    - Mystery man Jon Berti's first homer of the year is a pretty good one, as the Lumberjacks meet him at home plate at the bottom of the 10th versus the Punks
    - The Empire's Loiasaga is 5-0 on the year after defeating the Ligers
    - Jacob Nix throws 7 shutout against the Lumber, but the Punks still go down to a 3-run rally in the top of the 9th. Bellinger and Guerrero, Jr. do the damage with a double and a homer respectively
    - The Ferrets enjoy the bottom of the 13th, gathering to watch Michael Conforto round the bases after punishing the Stirrups' Mychal Givens

    Transactions and Injury Report
    - It's the 2020 draft, and Mrs. Bill and Sluggo go first. They get SS Austin Martin, who has good acceleration, comfortable seating, and a surprisingly generous trunk
    - Stephen Strasburg returns for the Punks! And . . . um, Tyler Wade
    - Jeff Samardzija is back in rehab. But in a good way
    - Byron Buxton is back to patrol CF for the Ligers, which means that Dexter Fowler has been gently shown the door
    - Trading Block check: Mike Trout (Fishermen), Chris Sale (Woodies; out injured), Kirby Yates (Woodies), Charlie Morton (Romanians), Ryan Pressly (Marauders) headline the players up for grabs.

    The standings, she is, 'ow you say, below:



    Empire (8-2 in their last 10) beginning to pull away from the Ligers (3-7). The Sluggos' losing streak has hit double figures. Acuna, Jr. takes over the stolen bases lead from the sidelined Trea Turner with 16.

    Re: Alternate Universe NYYFans.com Simulation

    Week legs 11.

    Game Action
    - Liam Hendriks keeps his job as Michigan closer despite his +7 ERA, picking up his 10 save against the Empire
    - The Best Team live up to their name for one game at least, tying it with 3 in the bottom of the ninth and walking off on an Odubel Herrera moonshot in the 12th
    - A Stanton double does the same for Ligers in the last of the 9th versus the Rookie Mistakes
    - Ryan McMahon's second blast of the night in the top of the 12 gives the Woodies a spring in their step against the Firesale
    - Two hits, two homers, two ribbies, and two walks for Max Kepler as the Fisherman beat the duo of Mrs. Bill and Sluggo
    - The Punks take it in extras against the Firesale
    - Vince Velasquez goes out in a blaze of glory for the Stirrups, his last game before injury running him to 7-2 with a 2.53 ERA against the Romanians
    - Matthew Boyd throws a 1 hitter for the Ligers, leaving Far Rockaway bamboozled, though he only strikes out 3 of the Fishermen
    - Tatis, Jr. manages to homer twice in the same inning: the 11th inning, as the Ferrets rack up 8 runs. They then nearly throw it away as the Blasts storm back for 3 before fading away.
    - Lous Larrup Lumber, LeMahieu likely lad
    - Tyler Anderson throws a complete game 1-run effort against the Ferrets, but loses as his Blasts can't muster more than 2 hits
    - Two in the 12th elevates the Blasts over the Pitches

    Transactions and Injury Report
    - Domingo German's return for the Romanians creeps closer; he's off to Triple-A rehab
    - J.T. Realmuto needs 3 weeks to deal with a shoulder contusion
    - Raisel Iglesias' mysterious absence from the Stirrups is over
    - Adam Wainwright comeback attempt with the Marauders is on! He's in their minors now
    - Remember Eric Jagielo? Planet Express do, and have put the 28-year-old in their Rookie league team. Ouch.
    - George Springer's fractured finger has a recovery time of '?' for the Marauders. Double ouch.
    - Max Muncy is healing for the Rookies, and Scherzer is ready to roll once again

    But we know why you're really here. It's for the standings:



    Gaps beginning to open up for the division leaders now, with the smallest gap 3.5 weeks. Tatis, Jr. has taken over the RBI lead, and Brandon Woodruff has joined Gerrit Cole on 10 wins. Planet Express haven't won in a week, so they could use a boost.

    Mike Trout's having a bit of a down year. Only slugging .508, and he seems to want away from the Fishermen. The Best Team and Planet Express have somewhat unhappy clubhouses, while the Buckeyes', Empire's, Woodies', and Ferrets' are 'ecstatic'.

    Re: Alternate Universe NYYFans.com Simulation

    Week zwolfe

    Game Action
    - Evil Empire comes from behind, as it were, against the Ferrets in the bottom of the 9th to walk it off, 5-4
    - Sons of Pitches do the same to the Firesale, except they didn't get to walk it off. But 4 in the top of the 9th to win 4-2 isn't too shabby
    - The Wolverines and the Express decided to work together and confuse this recapper: Up 8-3 in the 4th, the Wolverines let the Express take the lead 12-9 after 7, blow a 3-run lead in the bottom of the 8th, then finish the ordeal with a single run in the top of the 11th. Phew. Adalberto Mondesi goes 5-7 in the mess.
    - The Stirrup's 12th inning walk-off against the Rookie Mistakes, final score 10-9, looks pretty ordinary in comparison
    - Goldschmidt goes 2-2, both homers, and walks his other four plate appearances, but can't stop Planet losing 15-9 to Michigan. The Wolverines score 7 in the top of the 11. What's going on up in Michigan?
    - Gary Sanchez' two taters brings him to 22 on the year, and the Stirrups to a win over the Lumberjacks
    - Andrew Heaney's complete game isn't a shutout, but is a comfortable Fishermen victory over The Best Team
    - The next game sees the Best Team fire back with 8.1 scoreless innings from Joey Lucchesi
    - Kevin Pillar's bottom-of-the-ninth homer gives the Buckeyes a come from behind win against the Evil Empire

    Transactions and Injury Report
    - Justin Turner's rehab assignment begins for the Sons of Pitches
    - The Fisherman will be Ken Giles-less for 6 weeks, as he strained his bicep. Perhaps after a particularly enthusiastic game-saving fist-pump?
    - The Lumberjacks will be monitoring Gleyber Torres' rehab outings with great interest
    - Ronald Acuna, Jr. is a Stirrup once more, and an Injured List resident no longer
    - Matt Carpenter rejoins the Ferrets' business, and Patrick Corbin will start mowing down minor leaguers
    - Jeurys is no longer part of the Planet Express Familia, if you get the idea
    - Dexter Fowler will be a Lou for a bit as they grab him on a minor league deal

    Standing up for your rights:



    Three of the divisions have comfortable leaders, but the Mantle continues to be a cesspool of mediocrity. Jeff McNeil is the new batting champion leader, with an average of .382. Sonny Gray represents the Ligers on the ERA leaderboard at 2.53, while the Empire's Woodruff stands alone with 11 wins.

    Re: Alternate Universe NYYFans.com Simulation

    Week 13, lucky for some.

    Game Action
    - 6 in the top of the 12th allows the Romanians to flatten the Ferrets. The Formalities walk it off the next day themselves, 2-1 in the 11th
    - Loaisiga moves to 7-0 with a 2.89 ER for the Sluggos, while the Mistakes are less impressed with Darvish going to 2-9, 5.66 ERA
    - Matt Joyce walks 4 times, which is justified by his one non-BB at-bat being a homer, as the Punks terrorise the Marauders
    - The Stirrups rally from 7-3 down, capped by a Teoscar Hernandez grand slam finishing move in the bottom of the 9th
    - Clayton Kershaw wraps the the Ferrets-Yankees series with 8.1IP scoreless as the Ferrets squeak it, 1-0
    - A seven-run first inning gives the Buckeyes a lead that they never relinquish to vanquish the Woodies, 13-4
    - Mallex Smith (4-4, 3B, HR, 2 BB) leads the firing line as the Empire's firepower overwhelms Mrs Bill, 18-1
    - Springfield gets into a wild one and tops the Woodies 11-10 with 2 in each of the home 8th and 9th. Donovan Solano tallies 6 RBI and Verdugo goes 5-5
    - 4-1 down in the 8th, but the Fisherman rally against Josh Hader and the Sons of Pitches to eventually win 5-4
    - Dallas Keuchel throws a CGSO against the Fishermen for the Sons
    - Mitch Keller whiffs 17 in 8.1 as he and the Ferrets hold the Punks down to 1 measly hit

    Transactions and Injury Report
    - Teoscar Hernandez (see above) over-exerted himself and will miss 5 weeks with a rotator cuff owwey
    - Same story for Clayton Kershaw, who clearly worked himself off the roster for the Ferrets
    - Charlie Morton will be absent from the Romanians for a year after tearing a flexor tendon in the elbow. Commiserations
    - Trade Alert! Planet Express move Sean Doolittle to the Blasts for a couple of minor leaguers
    - Trade Alert! The Mistakes pick up RHP Andrew Chafin for another couple of pieces
    - Trade Alert! Add one Ryan Pressly to the Ligers, but also subtract him from the Marauders, with a 17-year-old CF going the other way
    - The Firesale are short one Ahmed Rosario as he's gone for 8 months, and Josh Donaldson will also miss a few weeks
    - Will Smith is back once again with the Best Team, humming 'Men in Black'
    - Trea Turner has got his running boots on once again for the Woodies, and Tanaka is locked and loaded again for the Empire

    Standings up for your rights here:



    The Empire's 8 game winning streak sees them opening up a big gap over the Ligers. The top 3 teams in the Ruth Division are all 3-7 in their last 10 games, while the Sluggos have lost their last 8, suggesting the whole division is looking forward to the All-Star Break. Nolan Arenado has jumped up to grab a share of the RBI lead with 65, and Mitch Keller is your new ERA leader with 2.55. Kyle Tucker (who he?) is the stolen base leader with 21.

    Re: Alternate Universe NYYFans.com Simulation

    Week 14 was on hold so long it was nearly Week 15.

    Game Action
    - A 5 for 5 day is the Story for Trevor, helping the Romanians take down the Babe
    - The Wolverines rally back for 5 in the top of the 9th to send it to extras against the Ferrets, but concede a walk-off in the bottom of the 11th
    - A homer for Altuve with two on in the bottom of the 9th lets the Ligers leap over the Buckeyes, 3-2
    - Three homers for J.D. Martinez lets the Wolverines bite back against their mustelid cousins, 7-6 over the Ferrets
    - The Firesale springs up in the top of the 9th to rally for four runs and stun the Fishermen, 11-9
    - Meija is the hero as the Blasts prevail over the Yankees in extras, 6-5
    - Castellanos raps out four hits with 3 going for extra bases; the Empire overwhelm the Rookies
    - Marauders explode for 4 in the top of the 12th and outlast the Pitches, 5-1
    - Lunacy at the home of the Sluggos, as it takes until the 15th to break the tie. The Firesale break it in style, however, batting around for 8 runs.
    - Johnny Cueto of the Ligers triumphs over Evil with 8IP, 0ER, and the win
    - Zach Wheeler tosses a complete game the next day, but can’t keep the shutout. The Best Team won’t mind, since he still got the W.
    - Meanwhile, Keller holds the Romanians to 2 hits in 7.2 IP for the Lous
    - Masahiro Tanaka is back to his old trick with a 4-hit shutout for the Empire over the Ligers
    - The scoreboard is tuckered out by the Lumberjacks/Buckeyes game. 16 runs scored by the time the first inning is over, and the Buckeyes finally staggered away as 18-11 winners

    Transaction and Injury News
    - The Marauders move Michael Pineda to The Best Team for a couple of minor leaguers
    - Yu Darvish relocates from the Rookies to the Punks
    - Matt Harvey, strangely, is part of the package that the Fisherman get from the Firesale for Jackie Bradley, Jr.
    - The Rookies offer up their closer to the Firesale, as Ian Kennedy picks out a new home in Springfield
    - The Buckeyes say bye-bye to Starlin Castro as he hits waivers
    - Subtract one Chad Green from The Best Team; his difficult year (5.73 ERA) is over with an injury)
    - Aaron Hicks is off on the minor-league road trips, sponsored by the Sluggos
    - Patrick Corbin stands atop the bump once again for the Formal Ferrets

    Standings? You can’t handle the standings:



    The Evil Empire continue to build their reputation as this year’s most dominant team; a .685 winning percentage and nearly 10 game lead on the trailing pack. In the Mantle Division, just the opposite, with every team clustered around .500 and the Lumberjacks enjoy just a half-game lead. The Best Team have charged back to .500 with their 9-game winning streak, while both the Gehrig and Ruth Division leaders are treading water recently.

    Mike Moustakas is up to 29 homers at the All-Star Break. Brandon Woodruff leads the majors with 12 wins, Gerrit Cole has an astonishing 153 strikeouts, and Josh Hader is your saves halfway champ with 20. Jeff McNeil’s 1.107 OPS is tops, as is his .394 batting average.

    But! It’s also the All-Star Break. Here are your ‘American League’ (Ruth+Gehrig Divisions) and ‘National League’ (DiMaggio+Mantle Divisions) lineups:





    Jack Flaherty (5.20 ERA), Josh James (4.20 ERA), Liam Hendriks (5.58 ERA), Mookie Betts (.820 OPS), and Omar Narvaez (.748 OPS) are minor puzzlers. Christian Yelich of the Ligers topped the ballots with 2.966 million votes.

    Hey now, it's an All-Star Week!

    All-Star Game
    - Pete Alonso takes the honours in the HR Derby, thanks to a 22-15 final round victory over Miguel Sano
    - The NL defeats the AL 3-1, thanks to a homer from Lindor, a double from Yelich, and a triple from . . . Gary Sanchez? I think something's broken in the Matrix.
    - Velasquez gets the win after striking out 3 on 14 pitches in his one inning. Hendriks gets the save, and Lamet the loss
    - Yelich takes home the MVP as the only player with 2 hits on the night

    Game Action
    - The Rookie Mistakes enjoy a 6-5 walk-off after going down by a run in the top of the 9th to the Woodies, with a Hays double doing the final damage
    - Same score in the Punks-Sluggos game, but it takes 15 innings before the Punks stagger off the field victorious
    - The Buckeyes and the Wolverines also enjoy walk-off victories; that makes 4 on the same day
    - 8.1IP scoreless from Joe Musgrove is a nice surprise as the Buckeyes rumble the Romanians
    - Three doubles for Evan Longoria is a good return for the Sluggos, their 9-2 win over the Punks even better
    - The Empire's Porcello keeps getting trotted out there, but at 2-10 with an ERA north of 6, the Sons of Pitches are the grateful recipients this week

    Transaction and Injury News
    - The Best Team move generic-name-owner Will Smith to the Empire for a couple of prospects. They also ship out Drew Pomeranz to Springfield, creating their own Firesale in their bullpen
    - Kung-Fu Panda goes down again as the Ligers let Sandoval leave
    - The Best Team have lost Chad Green for the year with shoulder inflammation
    - Yu Darvish departs the Mistakes and becomes a Punk. A few days later, he goes on the IL for an expected 4 months. Ouch.
    - JBJ moves to Springfield as the Fishermen have no more use for him
    - The Best Team now have a Michael Pineda as the Marauders wave goodbye
    - With Corbin down for the year, the Ferrets swap Manny Machado for the Stirrups' Chris Archer
    - Planet Express' delivery skills are needed once more as their Goldschmidt treks over to the Punks
    - Tommy Kahnle is a Mistake, and we don't just mean how his name is pronounced

    The standings loom over us all here:



    The Woodies are fading a little as the Firesale close the gap, while the Romanians and Pitches both stumble along. The Ferrets cede the lead to the Jacks, but no-one's getting close to the Evil Empire just yet. Sonny Gray is your ERA leader with a 2.83 and Yoan Moncada your homer leader with 29, but all eyes are on Jeff McNeil - .393 average and we're already into July. Can he? No. Could he? No. Will he? No.

    . . . but maybe?

    Be seeing you,
