I don't understand why you would downplay an amazing and rare feat in baseball, especially when he made an incredible slide to avoid the tag as well. A player has stolen home 7 times this season and Javy Baez is two of them.
because it's not amazing and rare when it's not a straight steal.

now granted it wasn't on a double steal, it was a failed pickoff then a throw home, a degree of difficulty harder. but nothing is close to as hard as a straight steal.

More players have hit 3 homers in a game in 2018 than stolen home, so yeah it is pretty rare and amazing.

Chris Davis tied Cal Ripken for most strikeouts by an Oriole. But he did it in 2,029 fewer games. :v:

His contract has probably been the worst one in history. They still owe him $23 million per year for the next 4 years and his current bWAR for the year 2018 is -2.3. :nngh:

with the current general hitting approach / climate, 3 HR games aren't as rare as before, so... :pinkieshrug:

going to have to agree to disagree on this one.

speaking of the Orioles have played effective spoiler against the Yankees, going 5-4 so far on the season. (they are now 26-66.)

Mike Matheny finally got canned. As a Cubs fan, this upsets me. I wanted him to keep coaching the Cardinals terribly forever. :grumpydash:

The Cubs will have the best record in the NL going into the All-Star break. :yay:

Bryce Harper wins the HR Derby at home!

Kyle Schwarber did a great job, losing in the finals to the favorite, and Javy hit the longest homer of the night, so I'm proud of both Cubs. :flutterunsmith:

The All-Star Game this year was basically the Home Run Derby, part II.
