Good morning everyone! The week rolls along, and so do the links.
In Mariners news...
- Us LL’ers are not the only ones who are excited about Kyle Lewis.
Kyle Lewis hit 4 HR in his first 6 games so obviously in our segment literally titled Bias-Ball I talked about how damn cool it has been to watch one of the faces of the next good Mariners team ( ) come up and be amazing immediately— Cespedes Family BBQ (@CespedesBBQ) September 16, 2019
- Dan Szymborski checked in on the Mariners.
- Make some time in your schedule to see Jerry tomorrow!
Around the league...
- Yordan Álvarez is one of the league’s best in nearly every category.
- Speaking of Álvarez, Ben Clemens at Fangraphs wrote about just how amazing the outfielder is.
- Mike Trout is among the elite in avoiding groundballs.
With Trout's season ending early, he finishes with a 24.3% GB rate, the 4th-lowest qualified season on FanGraphs since they got the data in 2002. Three Frank Thomas seasons are the only ones lower. pic.twitter.com/LWpZQK1muG— Lee Trocinski (@LeeTrocinski) September 16, 2019
- This should be a fun crew!
The Rays-Dodgers game on YouTube Tuesday will be called by Scott Braun, Nomar Garciaparra, B.J. Upton (he’s back to B.J. now???), and Alanna Rizzo— Eric Stephen (@ericstephen) September 16, 2019
