Predicted winner: Olson

Finalists for the AL Glove Glove Award:

FIRST BASE
Yuli Gurriel, Astros
Matt Olson, A's
Justin Smoak, Blue Jays

Olson is the reigning winner at first base and part of a stellar Oakland infield -- his 13 defensive runs saved led all MLB first basemen. Gurriel has anchored the first-base position for the Astros on their run to the World Series. Both he and Smoak
would be first-time winners.

He was a goddamned monster in the second half.  We can keep him at $20, but a massive career year from a 35-year-old?

Joins the 20-homer club, 20 days after joining the less exclusive club.

Keep on clubbing,Yuli.

It came with the bases loaded in the sixth with the team trailing the Angels 8-4. Thus nine homers in the 11 games before the All-Star break. Eighteen runs driven in.

Came to bat bat with runners on first and second in the bottom of the ninth, the score tied 10-10, and popped out on a 2-1 pitch. The wonder is that Robles threw him two strikes.

They're in extras, he started at 3B, and Yulieski has continued his hot hitting, including another HR.

But, his brother hit one in the first innings against the Orioles.

Now eight homers in ten games. One day off his fine. But three? No thank you.

Two in Coors to join the club.

AL won two of three yesterday and is closing ground, nevertheless at the halfway point trails the NL 84-67, getting outscored 757-680. The weakest NL team, the Fish, has won more games than three AL teams (Orioles, Tigers and Royals).

$16, slotting in at second base in Tout today.

So, in a league with mild inflation, do I keep him?

There's actually more competition besides Kepler competing for my last slot. There's also Jackie Bradley Jr. $15. And the really, really tough call: Bo Bichette on reserve.

Bo's a no-brainer in a dynasty league, of course, but the ADL is far from that. Two years, over and out. If Bo comes up this year, I get his stats for free. If he doesn't, I've blown both a freeze and a reserve-draft pick (we go only seven rounds) on nothing.

Kepler, Yuli and JBJ will play. But all are close to par.

If Bo plays this year, I think he'll play as well as any of them, maybe better.

But will he play at all?
