    Triple away from the cycle. He and Yuri with risp are insane. Got a double last an then scored again.

    Slg obp wRC+ wRAA are nuts for both.

    Only has 1 triple so far. He is fast enough so you you would think he would have a few more.

    Philadelphia now in first place in the NL East for the first time in forever, thanks in large measure to the pitching of Aaron Nola. Nola is 11-2 with a 2.47 era. I heard on the radio the other day that his stats by game 84 rank with 5 or 6 of the all time greats, Christy Mathewson, Walter Johnson, Juan Marachal among them.
    He is developing into one of the best pitchers in baseball. Barring injury he should get a mega deal once his rookie contract is up.

    Home park is small. 315 down the line with almost no foul territory in left. Only 4 players on the roster have any at all.

    Also forgot to mention astros called up their much anticipated biggest prospect kyle tucker and sent down Jake Marisnick.

    Tucker was drafted the same year as Bregman who was picked 2nd overall and tucker was 5th. He's the youngest active player in the AL.

    Was in Fresno batting .306 14 hrs 66rbi .891ops and a pcl all star.

    Struck out first 3 abs then had a solid hit to right knocked in a run and scored. Bats left.
    Hes 6'4 about 190lbs and looks to be a quiet and unassuming guy the exact opposite of Bregman who is the cockiest mf this side of the Mississippi.

    He will play LF bat 7th and looks to be there for many years to come. If they trade him I'm gonna be upset. Been anxiously waiting this call up.

    Also Bregman who i thought was just hot at the plate looks to be transitioning to superstar status. Already possibly the best fielding 3b and now best clutch hitting and on pace to be a 30 homerun 100 rbi guy already. His plate discipline was tops in the league. He's much more selective and his contact rate is stellar. Keep waiting for him to level out but his babip still leaves room and he's been killing it for 2 months now.
