Results for games through 4-28-2019

LIFE AND LEAGUE RE-ARRANGEMENTS: Welcome Leo as the newest Angelino, and he now lives a stone’s throw from Dodger Stadium in Pasadena…we’ll shortly have a new manager for the Tigers, due to an early owner departure…new owner announced soon (before the weekend, I hope).

COMMENTS: The Dodgers and the Braves are setting themselves into a class apart; both lead their divisions, they are the only two teams with winning percentages above .700, they are both in positive-WOR territory.  Yet, the Phillies trail the Bravos by only 3 and the Padres are only 4 back, and its reasonable to assume that the front-runners will probably cool off at some point…in the NL Central the Cards and Cubs are in a dead tie and four teams are within 4.5 games…Seattle is the class of the AL, and is the only DH-using club with a win percentage north of .600…The Rays have cooled a bit but still lead the AL East, where four clubs are within 2.5 of first…Cleveland and Minnesota are having an early-season dogfight and are separated by only a half game…everyone in the AL West is within 1 game of the actual club, except for Oakland who is +2.5…Atlanta and Washington are 1-2 in the NL East and 1-2 in the league-wide WOR standings…Houston and Texas were each 6-1 last week, tied for best in the league…Tampa Bay has the best actual ERA, and it’s a full run better than second-place…but Houston has a real-bullpen ERA of 1.89…but they’re only 2-3 in 1-run games…Atlanta is 10-1…the Dodgers are 13-3…the most impressive thing about that is the number of 1-run games they’ve been in…TWELVE trades this week…almost more than the rest of the year combined…Oakland and the Dodgers led the way…Chris Bassitt of Oakland struck out 33 in 17 innings last week…Angles got 2 quality starts out of Felix Pena…Moncada of the Chisox hit .524…
