I didn't.

What a season he's having. I fully expected him to win the game the next day with a grand slam off of Brad Hand.

Good call on that one, Alex!  Hope you had some money down ;-)

Any question who's going to win the home run derby?

ESPN, with help from the Associated Press, taking stock of the carnage:

NEW YORK -- A month after setting a record for most home runs in a month, big league batters did it again and are on pace to shatter the season mark.

Batters hit 1,142 home runs in June, seven more than they had hit in May.

Five of the top six home run months have occurred in the last three years. August 2017 is third at 1,119, followed by June 2017 (1,101), May 2000 (1,069) and May 2017 (1,060).

A total of 3,421 home runs were hit in 1,255 games through Sunday, an average of 2.73 per game. That is up 19% from the 2.28 average through June last year, when 2,822 home runs were hit in 1,236 games, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Batters are on pace to hit 6,624 home runs -- well above the record 6,105 set in 2017 and up from 5,585 last year.

A year after strikeouts surpassed hits for the first time, whiffs remain ahead: 21,871 to 21,554. Though there were more strikeouts than hits in March (949 to 848) and April (6,799 to 6,371), hitting has picked up in the warmer months. There were 7,170 hits to 7,137 strikeouts in May and 7,165 hits to 6,986 strikeouts in June.

The major league batting average was .251 through June. That is up three percentage points from last year's average, the lowest since 1972 -- the year before the American League started using the designated hitter.

March 28 - April 27 ... .306/.398/.684
April 28 - May 27 ... .200/.257/.505
May 28 through June 23 ... .326/.434/.747

a) looks like his hot start wasn't a fluke ...
b) he's cut his K rate from 32% for the first two months, to 25% since May 28
c) HRs have been incredibly consistent for those 3 periods - 9, 8, and 10

60 HR for a rookie?  Not unfathomable if he stays healthy.

And to make it exciting - in mid-September he has a six game stretch with 3 games in Coors ... followed by 3 games in Great American Ballpark.

Slugging .700+ since May 20.

Batting .197 since April 23rd ... with a .196 BABIP.  Still put 6 balls over the fence in those 22 games ... a 40+ HR pace during his slump.  I wouldn't rush to dump him.

Sell high window is closing. Batting .197 since April 23rd.

Will he earn $40 bucks?  Very unlikely.

Will he earn $30, after this hot start?  Not out of the realm of possibility.

I'd put the end of year over/under at $25 right now.  Which should make everyone who bought him very happy ... and everyone who bought him in a protect league very VERY happy.
