Results for games through 5-5-19

COMINGS AND GOINGS:

Leo has already made the email introduction; let me welcome via newsletter Sara Sanchez, new owner of the Tigers.  Sara and I are fellow Utah escapees and she is the author of the “Bleed Cub Blue” podcast, which is an impressive professional credential  in my eyes…Leo has recently relocated, and he and I have plans to see the Mets play the Dodgers later this month…which is notable only because, although he and I have both been in the league since 1994, and he’s been helping run it since at leas 1995, it will be the first time we’ve seen a major league game together…

IMITATING FIERS:

Mike Soroka of ATL threw a no-hitter against SDP on 5/1/2019!  And even with that, his ASFBL ERA is still higher than his real ERA…

COMMENTS:

Philly went a perfect 5-0 and is now just 2 back of Atlanta, who themselves collected 5 wins…as did the Brewers…The NL East is collectively 12.5 games better than their real teams…the Mets are the only team dragging that number downward…only the Reds and Dodgers have positive wins-over-reality numbers in the other NL divisions…ESPN ran a “why the Cubs/Cardinals rivalry matters again” story this week…the teams are tied in the ASFBL NL central…the Padres are matched dead even with the actual club, which is pretty good, and they’d be closer to first if the Dodgers weren’t 4 games better than the real club…defending ASFBL champ Tony Bernacchi had a 6-1 week, is +2.5 WOR, and pulled with a half-game of Alan Minsky’s Rays…KC was also 6-1, is within 3 games of first, and +4 WOR…Minnesota and Cleveland top the division…top 4 teams in the AL west combined to go 17-5…Texas has won 9 of it’s last 10…Seattle still tops the AL with the best record, even as Adam is re-vamping his lineup…after the Phillies, the Brewers have the best NL record over the last 10 games…three players had 3 home runs in a game last week…Chisox are the only team other than the Mariners with 20 stolen bases so far…Boston has a .277 team average, inches ahead of the Royals at .274…
