    More RBIs in the last 10 innings than Pujols has all season. 14th 4-homer game in the modern era, and 16th in all MLB history.

    Are we watching the greatest player currently playing baseball right now? Probably. The greatest of all time? There's a really good chance. I see a lot on The Mick in him, but he'll never match the numbers Mantle put up due to his late start. I do know this, though: We're watching someone really special, and the Rangers better open the checkbook (but please wait until the end of the season).

    No. He is swinging a good bat right now. He is average to below average as a center fielder. Case in point Johnny Damons triple . An above average fielder would have made that play . He is hurt too often.

    Average to below average? Keep telling yourself that.

    Well, the Tigers & Brewers haven't really done jack; Texas and the Dodgers are leading their divisions; the others are close enough to catch up & win their respective divisions.

    Still, way to Early to make a call, but the Dodgers & especially at the moment the Yankees are looking good.

    2nd half of this season as almost always should be entertaining to say the least ...

    :D

    Yeah, did I miss something there?

    Why was everyone cheering for him to not get any homeruns?

    1.) Because he's a NY Yankee, and 2.) Apparently he's been a bit of a dick to Kansas City and St Louis fans lately. He made some comments in an interview or something. You might have noticed Price Fielder's comment about the great fans in the Midwest.
