Zach Britton Baltimore Orioles
Francisco Lindor Cleveland Indians

Suddenly the Indians are one game behind the Dodgers for the best record in baseball. On August 25 they trailed by 20.

Lindor's 31st homer, which incidentally won the game, was the most in history by a switch-hitting shortstop. Broke a tie with... I might have guess one of these...

Jimmy Rollins and Jose Valentin.

Bryan Shaw Cleveland Indians

Third save last night. Two innings against the Angels in Anaheim, protecting a 6-5 lead. Last batter was Mike Trout. Struck him out on a 2-2 pitch with 97 mph cutter down and away.

If the Indians hadn't lost a squeaker a few days ago, it would have been their 27th in a row.

Adam Frazier Pittsburgh Pirates

One of my favorite current Pirates, Alex. I had the one comment on Frazier last year and drafted him in CBS and in my Dynasty league.

Reminds me of one of my other favorite Pirates, Rob Mackowiak.

Keith Cromer Slyke
Blake Snell Tampa Bay Rays

Seven scoreless against the Cubs. Still throwing 95 in the seventh.

Yes, he was released a few times this year, especially in mixies.

And yes, there will be big end-game fights for him next year.

Salvador Perez Kansas City Royals

First inning against Brett Anderson, struck out on three pitches. A fastball, then two sliders.

Second inning against Luis Santos:

> swinging strike against a fastball

> foul ball against a fastball

> foul ball against a slider.

Fourth pitch of the AB: 85 mph changeup.

Result: home run 386 feet to left center.

Thank you, Luis Santos.

Aaron Altherr Philadelphia Phillies

Only a great catch by Puig in the fourth keeps Altherr from going 4-for-4 as he again takes down the Dodgers.

The Fightins are 32-33 since the All-Star break. They try for the sweep this afternoon.

Adam Frazier Pittsburgh Pirates

Walk-off homer in the ninth on a 98 mph fastball from Knebel. Just missed another homer in the third with a triple that plated two. He's slashed .326/.385/.500 since the break.

Deven Marrero Boston Red Sox

Inside-outed a 91 mph fastball 406 feet to right center for a homer.

I can remember when only Moose Skowron did that.

Alex Patton Alex
Joe Panik San Francisco Giants

A homer shy of the cycle last night to lead the way over the Rockies at home. He's yet to reach the seats this year at AT&T, where he's slashing .241/.303/.318 in 220 AB.

Marcell Ozuna Miami Marlins

2008 before that...

Thomas Rosenthal TommyR
Jose Altuve Houston Astros

Yeah, we're going to have the right to match market price on him next year.  The only way we can handle that is to have a hard number beyond which we're out.  The good news is that it'll be the first round, so we'll know right away whether it's Strategy A or Strategy B.

Mike Dean TMU2009
Corey Knebel Milwaukee Brewers

Desperation got the better of Counsell and the Brewers tonite. 

9/18/17 Knebel 1 IP

9/19/17 Knebel 1 IP

9/20/17 Knebel  not only gets used 3 days in a row but gets pushed to get more than 3 outs by bringing him in with 2 outs in the 8th and as soon as he came out for the 9th I said to myself...not a wise decision.

Marcell Ozuna Miami Marlins

This might win you a bar bet or two....last teammates to have 115 RBIs the same season before it became Stanton and Ozuna today????


Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson 2011. 

van wilhoite LVW
Giancarlo Stanton Miami Marlins

The G column 3 of the last 4 years tempered my bid price on him.

The ebbs and flows in the fight for 1st place ... and 4th place ... continue ...

MVP

Keith Cromer Slyke
Didi Gregorius New York Yankees

Hit his 25th HR today, passing Jeter for the most HR's in a season by a SS for the Yankees - and did in 128 games.

For a franchise of this magnitude with all their elite players and 115 seasons, that's a pretty impressive feat.
