Rushed to join the 10-homer club today and kept going.

The first two were over the Green Monster, the first on an inside pitch not even close to a strike.

The third bounced back onto the field off the wall above the camera in center. Neither announcer could recall ever seeing a ball travel that far to dead center in Fenway.

Ozuna (facial laceration) could be used as Atlanta's primary designated hitter this season, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The 29-year-old's bat will be in the lineup somewhere on a consistent basis, but Ozuna's declining defense over the couple of years could push him to DH rather than left field, while Nick Markakis and Adam Duvall platoon in the other spot. Austin Riley could also be in the LF/DH mix for Atlanta. Wherever he plays defensively, Ozuna's power will keep him in the heart of the batting order.

What's up with crazy baseball wives? Ozuna's wife hit him in the face with a soap dish that caused a laceration and stitches! Reminds me of Tawny Kitaen beating up Chuck Finley about 20 years ago.

Ozuna's facial laceration is considered minor and he continues to work out daily, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Ozuna was able to drive himself to the hospital after the incident, a clear sign that the laceration he suffered was a minor issue. His participation in daily workouts also suggests the issue won't have any effect on his ability to ready for the start of the 2020 campaign, assuming there is one.

Manfred created a tradeable piece by adding a 26th player to the major league roster.

He can make it's permanence a part of the agreement. I also expect the NL to get the DH in the next agreement. DH's in general make a good bit more than the 13th hitter or pitcher on a team and generally go to older (read slower) players who can still hit.

Having worked in both the rail and mining industries, I'll say that Alex is correct as to the long-term cause, Eugene as to the more recent drop in jobs.  In the go-go first decade of the 2000's it was as if the industry knew its day was ending so it hauled as much out of the ground as it could while there was still a market.

Every time I read a claim that a major league baseball team isn't making money, I'm reminded of the old joke:

"COMPANY OWNER TO CFO:  How much money did we make last year?"

"CFO TO COMPANY OWNER:  How much do you want to make?"

C'mon.

Automation hasn't been what has replaced coal miners.  Coal itself has been replaced with both less expensive energy sources and those more favored by the government.

I'll avoid the discussion of controllers as representing them is my job.
