Formal Congratulations to Pedro Alvarez for becoming the 3rd player inducted into the Hall of Fame. He's the first member of the MAPS dynasty to hit the Hall. He's also the first player to hit 600 home runs but certainly not the last...
Carlos Sanchez started the year with 589 career home runs. He currently sits at 594. I'm praying he hits 50 more this season.
INJURY NEWS - Four-time NL MVP Taylor Glynn goes on the 15-Day DL with a torn miniscus. Luckily for johncfremont the injury only seems to have effected Glynn's baserunning abilities and range. The hitting stroke will be okay.
Ottawa Rockets pitcher Mark Fiore had to get shoulder surgery and will be out 120+ HBD days. The young righthander had started his career off well. In 52 career starts he owns a 3.17 ERA and bater have hit a mere .235.
CYCLE - Vince Moriarty hit for the cycle against Jacksonville. The cycle continues the dream. Over the last season Moriarty has been an All-Star, postseason hero, champion and he can now add the cycle to his list of accomplishments.
SADLER - Murray Sadler is unquestionably the MVP of the first 10 games. The MuckLucks LF is hitting .432 with 21 runs batted in. He has hit safely in all 10 games and had an 8 RBI day vs. Jacksonville.
Good Luck to everyone. Can the NL please win a World Series?
