That works, thanks again!

So ... hittrackeronline.com is gone?  Ouch ... so I can't figure out how to get the data about this HR ... "StatCast" doesn't seem friendly ... or at least I haven't found an easy way to find the data about this HR on StatCast :-(

Thank-you for that link ... that truly is ... MUST SEE!!!

Four true outcomes, all of them walks.

That's respect.

Yes, hence my "triple crown" comment a few days back.  His "combined year" including AAA is better than Trout or Yelich.  Minute Maid is positively electric when he comes to the plate.

Is this rookie having best start to career ever?

... if Alvarez is in the lineup, it will be his 50th MLB game. It also will cap what might be the best 50-game debut by a hitter in at least the past 80 years.

That’s a strong statement, but through 49 games, Alvarez owns a .339/.422/.694 slash line, which produces a park-adjusted wRC+ of 190 (90% better than league average). He has bashed 14 doubles and 17 homers, while driving in 52 runs.

On local Houston sports radio today they made the observation that IF you combine his 2019 AAA and MLB stats, he'd be on pace to win the triple crown in this, his rookie year.

Its a big if, but impressive nonetheless.  Astros are simply stacked right now.  Fun time to be a fan!
