Jon Gray has better hair than Thor

Tough ruling on Blackmon's bunt there. Ruled an error, but I don't know that a good throw gets him.

2 hours to go 23 miles on gameday doesn't seem so bad. Signed, everyone in West LA.

Harper absolute bomb

When I was in school up in Cambridge I used to walk over and scalp tickets on the cheap. I'd always hit up one of the carts on Lansdowne outside the park before heading in.
Paul Swydan
2:56
Yup, when I went to BU we'd walk over for Pedro starts and get in to games with college IDs for like $8. Fenway never sold out back then, even for Pedro games.
Keith

Apparently Gerrit Cole and Brandon Crawford are brother-in-laws. Your fun fact of the day

Speaking of playoff probabilities, can you guys comment on why Cleveland's playoff odds went up and Detroits went down after yesterday's games (which featured no AL Central teams).
Dave Cameron
2:56
Probably a depth charts change.
Brandon M
2:57
Remember when Kemp was going to be the first 50/50 player?
Paul Swydan
2:57
Yes, there were some changes made to every team in the AL Central yesterday.
Dave Cameron
2:57
He could be the first -50/-50 guy, if we go UZR/DRS.
Brian

Harper exit velo?
Dave Cameron

Can't spell kemp without a k

Jon Gray could be a CY contender on any other team.
Shirtless George Brett
2:58
that changeup of Thors is just not fair
Bill

Who is best candidate for 50/50 currently in pro ball (non-Trout division)?
Dave Cameron
3:00
There isn't one. The guys who can hit 50 aren't going to attempt 50 SBs. Injury risk too high for a player of that caliber.
Paul Swydan

Paul Goldschmidt stole 32 bases last year....but no one, really.
AMAZING catch by Jackie Bradley Jr., as he bangs up against the wall in the Triangle.

JBJ!!! WOW!

At a dead sprint by the way.

How many Kershaw strikeouts vs. the Padres today?
Paul Swydan
3:01
28?
Ned Yost

Do you guys hate Bryce Haper's bears as much as I do?
Dave Cameron
3:01
I feel like having bears would be a violation of his contract.
Paul Swydan
3:01
he has bears?
3:02
like, real bears?
Dave Cameron
3:02
I think he meant beard.
Paul Swydan

Going back to what you said about injury risk and steals – is this something that happens frequently? Do teams tell some of their best players to not steal?
Dave Cameron
3:02
It's not a coincidence Trout stopped running.
Paul Swydan
3:02
I was picturing Harper's backyard being like Scarface's, when he had the tiger chained up in the yard.
Different Jack
3:03
If you were like Odor and got to add something to your contract what would you get?
Dave Cameron
3:03
I get the day off whenever Syndergaard pitches.
Paul Swydan
3:03
Personal chef!
Matt

Buxton could go all Eric Davis one year, maybe, and approach 50-50 if everything clicked.
JTT
3:03
Trout or prime Granderson I feel like would be the only recent players to have a shot at 50/50
