Corbin Burnes Milwaukee Brewers

Gave up a hit (a triple) in the fifth inning and with the score 15-0, it didn't seem likely Burnes would come out to pitch the seventh, but he did, setting the Tigers down in order with two more strikeouts. Good for the game score. It was the longest outing of Burnes' nascent career as a starter. He's allowed one unearned run in his last three starts.

Eugene, I had hopes as well for Lopez. I had only a few bucks to fill ss, and I bought him for 2. He looked awful early, and I was able to switch to Myles Straw. Straw is another disappointment who hasn't hit any better than Lopez, and no power either. But Straw is running some, 6 steals with 2 caught. Using the 40% for games played this year, if Straw gets to 8 by end of September that's a 20-steal regular season, and I'll be happy with that for cheap steals..

I had high hopes for Lopez this year.  Besides the hitting, he's 5-5 in caught stealing this season.  That's right.  He's only been caught.  No steals.

Ha-Seong Kim update time. He hasn't slowed down one bit as the season has progressed. He's currently 4'th in home runs with 24 in 397 AB, third in RBI with 87, and third in stolen bases with 19. He still hasn't been caught stealing this year. I'm really hoping we see this 24-year-old star plying his trade in MLB next year.

Kelvin Rojas Oakland Athletics

Mel Rojas Jr. is enjoying another banner year in the KBO. He's currently the leader in HR (36), RBI (98), OPS (1.107), and third in BA (.350). The strikeout-to-walk ratio is about the same this year, 101/38. The KBO has definitely spiced up the baseball this year, after the 2019 dead-ball experience. He could be a candidate to attempt a return to MLB for 2021.

"Tomoyuki Sugano:
Finally, the Yomuiri Giants posted a player, Shun Yamaguchi. Could a second
player be right around the corner? The two-time Sawamura Award winner (2017 and
2018) is looking at a posting in 2021, otherwise he’ll most likely arrive as a
Free Agent in 2022." 

Sugano is enjoying another stellar year. In 12 starts (87 1/3 IP) he's the proud owner of a 10-0 won/loss record with a 1.44 ERA. You can pencil him in for his third Sawamura Award. I'm still not sure about the off-season posting. This could go either way, but let's hope for a 2021 arrival in MLB.

Jason Martin Pittsburgh Pirates

Wow. Story was written by someone who was not at the game, and not watching the game, no question about that.

According to the AP...

PITTSBURGH -- Pinch-runner Jason Martin scored the winning run on catcher Yasmani Grandal's error in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied for a 5-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.

With the score tied at 4-4, the Pirates loaded the bases with none out as Gregory Polanco and Josh Bell singled and Ke'Bryan Hayes walked.

Kevin Newman then laid down a bunt. Pitcher Jimmy Cordero fielded the ball and shoveled it to Grandal in attempt to get a force out at home plate, but Grandal dropped the toss and Martin, who ran for Polanco, scored.

Now here's my question. Have bots in fact taken over the empty press boxes?

Watch this and you'll see what I mean.

Gets a rare start, specifically to face Greinke, and responds with a double and homer. He began the season 0-for-15 with seven strikeouts. In the second game of the double-header yesterday, he went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts.

Edward Olivares San Diego Padres

I seriously thought about it, Alex. After picking Triston McKenzie it potentially leaves me with nine of my 15 keepers being $3 types. There is only so much room at the Inn and I'm already going to be returning some solid talent to the player pool for the Fall Auction. Is it too early to be lobbying for 20 keepers?

Tom Seaver Boston Red Sox

Steady Eddie being dealt to the Dodgers was a gut punch.  I know he was one of the highest paid players in the game and requested a trade (about two years earlier) because the team was awful and the front office wasn't trying to improve (it claimed his contract was preventing it).  But, because they didn't deal him for so long it seemed like it would never happen.  Until it did.  I was 14.  I've had sideburns in his honor for the last 27 years.

I felt the same way about Mays, growing up in the Bay Area, so much so that when I went to bat day in 1966 or so I asked for a McCovey bat. I was disconsolate when he got traded to the Mets, though I couldn't give up on baseball at 17.

Talk about a huge disappointment. Was so excited to get him at $23. Instead I've got Jake Cronenworth as my #2 stealer behind Villar.
