    I've been wanting to post more about Freeman, just haven't had the time lately. Thanks Freethinker. I've mentioned before that Freeman's stats are better than Jim Thome's at this point in his career and Thome went on to hit over 600 HR's.

    Freeman is out for 10 weeks now - probably won't be back until August. He was hit by a pitch and fractured his wrist. In the same game Kevin Pillar called a Braves pitcher a f_ggot and has been suspended two games by the MLB. Also, in that game Jose Bautista displayed that supposed Latino emotion again that BSPN just drivels over and says is good for the game which it is not. He hit a HR and proceeded to stare down the pitcher and than do an obnoxious bat flip. Luckily white Braves 2B Jace Peterson gave him a talking to as did catcher Kurt Suzuki. Bautista is a real annoying presence in baseball and I have no doubt that he did do PEDs when you look at his career numbers.

    Mike Trout showing the East Coast why he's the best player in MLB., is 2 - 2, D, HR, 3 RBI,SB and 2 BB's. against the NY Mets! Trout has now reached base in 38 of 40 games! I can't say it enough, we are witnessing the most complete player in the history of MLB! This man does it all, all the time! What's more, is that he's doing it on a terrible team. It's mind blowing to think what he would do if he were on a team on a team like Colorado, Arizona, or Washington!

    Interestingly, HR and K rates are both at historic highs thus far in 2017. The modern day batter is swinging for the fences like no time in history.
