Let's hear it for Aaron Judge and the Cleveland Indians! Aaron has a great shot at breaking the all time record for strikeouts in a single season and the Indians are closing in on the longest winning streak in baseball history.

The Indians have been around for 116 years but Aaron is close to achieving immortality in his very first full season.

Isn't Judge the kind of Yankee you most admire, Jim?

And huge congrats to the Indians.

W21 looks pretty amazing in the streak column.

Indians are not bad.

I am looking forward to a Cleveland-Houston AL series.

NL West is interesting with Colorado and Arizona in a dogfight for runner-up to the Dodgers. All three teams from this division could make it to the postseason.

Twins are punching above their weight in Minnesota.

I hope the Dodgers make it to the WS! I LOVE rooting against them.

Grew up a Doyers fan, but haven't been since the 70s.

For the 13th consecutive year the American League has prevailed in Interleague play. There is no better measure (given the number of games played) of superiority.

interesting stat Jimbo. What does that say about the DH? You'd think it wouldn't matter 'cause when American League teams play in National League parks they can't use their DH, but the NL teams get to use a DH when in AL parks. You'd probably have to look at how AL teams structure their rosters. They carry a DH who is supposed to be a very good hitter, but NL teams have only backup players beyond their normal 8 starters, so when NL teams get to use a DH they have to pick that player from their non-starters. I think the advantage goes to the AL teams in that case. Maybe the records are more even in inter-league games played in NL parks???

EDIT: thanks Jim, figured someone in the know has thought this thing through better than I

Little Z...there is an interesting article on ESPN that debunks the role of the DH in the disparity between the AL and NL in Interleague play.

You can look it up on this thread, at the start of the season I said their bullpen sucked and they are proving me right, aren't they?

I have had little regard for the Dodgers ever since they slunk out of Brooklyn in the middle of the night. Sports are a nice, convient and safe place to harbor that time tested human failing...holding a grudge.
May their WS hpoes die a quick death!

If the Cubs face the Dodgers I'll have to recuse myself, which is preferable to abusing myself.

For the 13th consecutive year the American League has prevailed in Interleague play. There is no better measure (given the number of games played) of superiority.

And in this century the National League has won 9 World Series to 8 for the junior circuit.

Perhaps that's a better measure?

Twins sticking it to the Evil Empire in the Bronx


2017 Yankees payroll: $202 MM -- just one of two MLB teams with payroll above $200 MM

2017 Twins payroll: $108 MM -- ranked 22 out of 30 MLB teams


Yankees fan -- insufferable asssholes
Twins fans -- generally pretty nice
