Today in the MLB: Charlie Blackmon hitting .400 and more great stats…

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The Colorado Rockies won again on Tuesday night, and Charlie Blackmon recorded three more hits. His batting average is now at .484 which is the best start since Barry Bonds hit .525 through the first 16 games in 2004. The last time a batter hit .400 was Ted Williams in 1941. He hit .406 while playing in 143 games. Nolan Arenado recorded two RBI’s, with a two-run homer in the 4th inning. That home run drove in Charlie Blackmon.

The St. Louis Cardinals have only played five games this year due to the corona virus. The Central division has definitely been the one to suffer the most due to the pandemic. The Cubs have played 3 less games than the rest of the league and the Cardinals have played 13 less games than the rest of the league. The Pirates have also played less games than they should have until this point. In the Eastern division the Phillies, Nationals and Marlins have also suffered because of the virus. They have only played twelve, thirteen and eleven respectively. The Marlins have not even played a home game this year, they are 7-4 and have played every game on the road.


The Toronto Blue Jays played their first home game today and won it. They have had to play in Buffalo which is in a different country than Toronto where they usually play. They have been forced to play in Buffalo because the virus is so bad in America that Canada does not want them playing in America and coming back and hosting games in Canada. Buffalo is a minor league stadium, so teams might ot be too happy about playing there. Although only 10 teams max will have to play there over the course of this 60 game season.

The Mets fall to 7-11 with another loss to the Nationals. The night after Luis Guillorme pitches, he helps turn two double plays with youngster Andres Gimenez. Gimenez has shown he has the tools to be a solid big league player, He has already stolen three bases, is batting over .300 and has been a terrific fielder. Mets fans are raving about this kid and it is fairly easy to see why. He hit his second triple of the season on Wednesday. He does not have tremendous power but he can develop that as he gets older.

The Mets have been going with a defensively strong lineup when Rick Porcello is on the mound because of how many ground balls he produces. So the infield they have been using is J.D. Davis at third, he has really proved himself defensively in the past five games. Luis Guillorme and Andres Gimenez at second and shortstop and Dom Smith at first. Dominic Smith was playing first base to give Pete Alonso his first night of the season without starting. He did however pinch hit for Billy Hamilton and relieve Smith of the first base duties.

Aaron Judge hit his 9th home run of the season tonight, to lead the Yankees past the Braves with a final score of 9-6. Luke Voit also hit a home run tonight. Aaron Judge was removed in the 6th inning, but to the excitement of Yankees fans it was not an injury it was just for rest. Manager Aaron Boone says he wanted him to rest since they were already leading 8-0.

Fernando Tatis Jr. showed off his glove tonight with a nice diving catch at third. He has been playing at extraordinary levels. He was leading the league in homers until earlier tonight, and he is still leading the league in 18 RBI’s. He also has a .333 average which is amazing, and crazy that it falls to 7th best in the league. He is playing above expectations during only his second year in the big leagues. He shows no signs of slowing down. So he might not hit a sophomore slump in this 60 game season.

Russian GP – Race Preview

Russian Grand Prix can be a boring race so let's hope this race gets off to a great start. The only memory I have of the Russian GP is Valtteri Bottas letting Lewis Hamilton win. Last race at Mugello was an exciting race. With two red flags and one horrible crash. And Ferrari 1000 celebration wasn't the best either, but that might be because of the strict rules now during COVID 19. So I am happy...

Benny Leonard: Always A Champion

If you sat down with a group of boxing fans under the age of say, 50, and began to talk about whether Benny Leonard really is a Top-10 all-time fighter, you'd probably have a cacophony of voices barking at you about how great "Sugar" Ray really was. Tell them you were talking about Benny Leonard though, and you might hear a lot of "Who's that?" from the same group. But Benny Leonard most definitely belongs...

IPL Talking Points

Efficient CSK get the job done again Before the tournament began, the Chennai Super Kings were touted to struggle by everybody analysing the game. But, on the opening day, post the opening powerplay overs, MS Dhoni proved once again why the IPL betting odds are always in their favor.
