B-R nominates Kyle Tucker's game-tying single in the 12th as the biggest play yesterday. Not so fast. Check this out.

The Great Fantasy Baseball Invitiational consists of 21 15-team leagues made up primarily of fantasy baseball writers, radio folks, and experts. You can win your own league, that's one race, and then there is a combined race. Teams were put together in drafts in late March.

There is also a standings for players. Which players are on the best teams overall.

The top 3 are Rosario, Cody Bellinger, Max Scherzer.

After 81 games, Twins are 52-29, eight games up on the Indians. Their run differential is +107.  They've hit 151 homers.

Rosario is the team leader with 20. Next is Max Kepler with 19. Six others have hit 11 or more. Two have hit nine.

The team OPS (.831) is the best in the majors. Somehow the Rockies have scored four more runs (in 82 games) with an OPS (.795) that ranks sixth in the majors.

You guess it. If you read the previous post first and guessed the Twins.

After 54 games, the Twins are 37-17. Their +112 run differential is the best by a mile. They are 19-9 at home, 18-8 on the road. The have won 11 of 14 in the AL Central.

Their one flaw: even with the win against the Brewers yesterday, they are 3-4 against the NL. (NL leads 50-43 after a third of the season.)

Eddie Rosario put number 17 into the seats yesterday. Twins now have 106 home runs.

Multiply those numbers by three.

The best baserunner in baseball last year when steals aren't factored in?

Seemingly, Eddie Rosario.

He had 26 chances to advance from first to third on a single and did so 16 times.

He had 18 chances to scoot home from second on a single and did so 16 times.

He had 16 chances to make it home from first on a double and did so ten times.

He was thrown out five times advancing on the bases.

Altogether, in the accounting of the Handbook (and BIS), this adds up to +27 in BR Gain. Right behind him is Jose Ramirez with +26.

Do they have close to the same running speed? Surely not. Ramirez would win a 60-yard dash with yards to spare.

All singles, and all doubles, are not created equal. Obviously.

Do teams even use the hit-and-run anymore? That would be a factor.

But clearly Eddie Rosario excelled at taking the extra base. The MLB average for going from second to home on a single, the Handbook tells us, was "just under 60 percent." Billy Hamilton had 19 chances to do this and took the chance 11 times.

Rosario's success rate on going first to third was "approximately double the MLB average." Hamilton had 26 such opportunities and declined to go for it 16 times.

If I had a calculator handy I would be more specific.

Hitter No. 40 in $5x5 (both leagues).

2018 Statcast averages

HIP: 444

Avg Exit Velocity: 87.7

Avg HR Distance: 378

Cloned his 2017 season. Earns a tad more because the average hitter wasn't quit eas good.
