Showing power ... and the BABIP should climb taking BA and RBI along with it ... but the running game might be gone forever.

Another win for the guys having one of their 2 best hitters batting 2nd.

Orlando Cepeda redux?

The shortage of sure-thing 1Bs pushes the prices of the big 3 in the NL up.  Goldy $41, Freeman $40, Rizzo $35 in CBS.

Just a nit, but it looks to me like he's tied for 3rd :-)

Ties for second in the most Long Flies That Were Caught last year.

Balls hit 400+ feet last year that didn't land in the seats and in fact landed in fielders' gloves:

Mookie Betts 4

Nick Castellanos 4

Mike Trout 3

Alex Bregman 3

Eduardo Escobar 3

Kendrys Morales 3

Paul Goldschmidt 3

Goldy also had four of his flies that traveled between 380 and 399 feet get caught.

Exceptionally unlucky?

Not really. The number of fly outs between 380 and 390 for the other hitters on this list:

Betts 9

Castellanos 8

Trout 2

Bregman 11

Escobar 6

Morales 8
