    Yeah, I think Alonso has got ROY on lock if he hits 40+...voters just love rookies who can hit 40 home runs. It's like a fetish to them.

    Even if a Saber-God toolsy shortstop is having just as good of a season (or better).
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    If Tatis goes on a tear and got 30/25 while keeping the average over .320 I think it'll be a closer race than people think, even if Alonso does hit 40+.

    Adrian Morejon will join Luis Urķas in Chicago tomorrow, sources tell The Athletic. Morejon, who has thrown seven consecutive hitless innings in Double A, will work out of the bullpen.

    I know it's too early to get an idea of what Tatis Jr's median BABIP will look like on an annual basis but his current .431 BABIP is an impossibility to sustain for the remainder of the season (or at all, as nobody can sustain a BABIP over .400) so his avg will most assuredly take a dive at some point this season when his luck let's up. Factor in his strikeout rate, which has pretty much been 1 per every 3 at-bats (30.6% per plate appearance) and I find it difficult that he'll be able to maintain a .300+ avg this year. I do however find it possible that he could put up a 30/25 season (I was thinking more along the lines of a 25/25 season but 15 home runs in 62 games does put him on pace for 30 so I find it believable).

    But sure, I'd agree that if he were able to put up 30+ home runs, 25+ stolen bases and simply an average over .300 that he'd make the race very, very close. I'd personally find him to be way more deserving than a first baseman four years older than him who hits 40+ home runs. In fact, I *almost* already do...but I don't believe the voters do, at least not according to mlb.com's latest ROY ballot (not that it means anything).

    And just in general I believe you're right, this race may end up being closer than I first assumed. I think Alonso and Tatis will be battling it out for 1st while Soroka tries to defend 3rd place from rookies like Paddack.

    The BABIP is nuts you're right. If he runs a .360 BABIP though which isn't crazy given the batted ball profile and his speed he's still going to be a .290-300 hitter most years and he has enough hits stashed this year already to stay well above .300 unless he just absolutely craters.

    The Dodgers didn’t make a big move at the trade deadline, but they’ve got reinforcements coming: Dustin May, their top pitching prospect, will make his major league debut Friday, sources tell ESPN. May, 21, is nicknamed Gingergaard: his long hair is red, his stuff is like Thor’s.
