Yelich’s splits:

Home: 17HR, .395 AVG, 1.092 SLG
Away: 5 HR, .250 AVG, .464 SLG

I looked into the splits for most of their starters and almost all actually have more homers and higher slugging on the road this season.


What's the theory? He alone is getting stolen signs?


No idea. Maybe? It’s strange, regardless.

Brewers sent Hiura back to Triple A. All he's done is hit .281 .333 .531 .865.

I mean, no. That is 100%, most definitely not the case.

Ok, so he’s not being fed signs. What gives? Sure, Miller is a hitters park, but go look at the splits on the Blake Street Bombers during the Coors Field heyday. Their slugging % was at most like 250 points higher at Coors, not freaking double.

Up to 19HR at home with an 1.606OPS vs on the road with 5HR and an .844OPS. Six percent higher BB% and six percent lower K% at home as well. Has any player ever had such a ridiculous Home/Away split?

Cargo’s OPS at home was .240 points than on the road, which is ridiculous. However, that just reinforces how insanely ludicrous an OPS that is 600 points higher at home is.

What a weird horsefeathering division. Yeah, the Pirates are in last, but they have zero horsefeathering business being anywhere near .500.

Being six games over and having a -1 run differential is hardly anything special, there are teams that play way worse and end up with way better records, like the 2007 Diamondbacks.

The team that should be really upset is the reds with a +48 run differential and a losing record

The Reds and Pirates having the same record but the Reds being +120 in RD is hilarious.

The VB’s sent Shaw down and called Hiura back up and DFA’d Hernan Perez as well. Wish we showed as much urgency on the back side of the roster to turn things over.

Puig gave the Reds a pretty cool win against the vaunted Brewers last night:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Robel Garcia has 24 homeruns in 81 games this year.

Well when 53 MLB guys are on pace for 30+ HR in 2019 compared to 27 in 2018, I'm not even surprised anymore.

That the Brewers are where they are with a pitching staff held together with chicken wire and masking tape makes me angrier that it should.

Interesting article about Hard-R Hader's fastball and why no one can hit it, which is something I've been curious about for a long time.

A more important factor is Hader’s deal with Baalzebub
