Giants lose Bumgarner for possible 6-8 weeks due to a dirt biking accident.  That is a tough one.

A's are a game above .500 and in 2nd place in the AL West.  NL Central is a real log jam at this point.

I know, right?  At first I couldn't believe it. You know, the thing about Geddy not even talking some days on tour to rest his voice. But then I thought, well, if I were only 27 and had done the things Bumgarner has, I would maybe think I was bulletproof also. But if I got paid what he does, I think I would stay off of the dirt bike!  :D

You'd think it would be in his contract.

The Jeb and Jeter show?

http://www.miamihera...e146669364.html

Marlins expect to finalize $1.3B deal to sell team to Jeb Bush-Derek Jeter group

By Barry Jackson
bjackson@miamiherald.com

Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has reached an agreement in principle to sell the team to a group led by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and including former New York Yankees star Derek Jeter, pending Major League Baseball approval and other details still to be worked out in the drawing-up and execution of a contract, an MLB source said Tuesday.
According to the source, Bush’s group has agreed to pay $1.3 billion for the team.
The source said the Marlins and the Bush group are very optimistic a deal will be finalized, but the process could take months to conclude.
Bush plans to be the Marlins’ “control person,” the individual who would have ultimate control over franchise decisions, according to the source.
Jeter, the former All-Star player who lives in Tampa, plans to play an active role in the franchise.
Bush’s group includes at least five investors, and the identity of those investors and their connections to South Florida are unknown. All of Bush and Jeter’s partners would need to be vetted and approved by Major League Baseball.
It’s also unclear which of those investors has the most money invested in the bid, but a source reiterated that Bush will be the control person, similar to a managing partner.
Loria does not plan to retain a piece of the team that he has owned since 2002, the source said.
Bush was informed this week that his offer was selected over bids from at least two others — New York businessman Wayne Rothbaum and a group led by Massachusetts businessman Tagg Romney, son of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Eric Thames has hit 8 home runs in six games against the Reds.  11 homers total this month.   :o :haz:

Exactly,

Same thing happened to Jeff Kent years ago.

Dodgers got off to a shaky start but they've begun to pull back now. They're on a five game win streak and Cody Bellinger (the rookie) is performing better than almost anyone on the team right now! In his first month he already has six home runs, including a grand slam, and a .315 batting average. Go Dodgers!

The Milwaukee Brewers are having a LOT of fun these days.  :D :D

A glorious comeback 11-9 win over the Mets today, a 3-game sweep, and a 21-17 record.  
They're leading the entire League in home runs, 2nd in runs scored, and 2nd in slugging.  

And all without the chronically-laden-with-owies Ryan Braun this past week.  :haz:

Mike Trout is unbelievable.

A few more years like his first 5 plus this one and he will be top 10 all time.  With a shot at top 5.

Got you back and won the series!  :P

I'm impressed with this Yankees team this year.  Sure, they're not as red-hot as they were last month, but they're still getting their wins despite the injuries.

He is, but Aaron Judge is off to a monster start this year.
