    @tirk must have known that Bregs would be in the homerun derby. That about kills his chances of having a decent 2nd half as far as bombs go.

    Didn't hurt Giancarlo Stanton or Aaron Judge last year. 57 and 53 ain't too shabby.

    Stros blow a lead in the 8th. Is there a dominant closer they could acquire by the trade deadline?

    5 Tigers 1 game. Astros & Detroit.
    Bregs mahtook jacoby Jones Louis Coleman will Harris

    Bregs 2 run shot first at bat for his 20th. Amazing. It's not just a streak when it's over 2 months now. Has reached base safely in 51 of the last 52 games. Has 30 doubles. Leads team in ops rbi hr. 12 homers his last 25 games. And leads the AL in homeruns and ops since June 1.

    T-Bob and Jordy talked to Bregman's dad yesterday. When T-Bob asked him about where his son's new found power came from he started comparing Alex's size to Mike Trout who is way bigger. I hope he is not on peds.

    If he had hit like that in college ee would have another natty or 2.

    Aaron Nola is starting Sunday for Phillie so he won't be pitching in a All Star gsme.

    Bregman has worked out and filled out from his days at LSU 3-4 years ago, he is also 24 which is a lot different than 18 years old.

    The Rockies are making a nice little run to get above .500 and within a couple of games of the Dodgers. Hope the All Star break doesn't stop the meaux.
