Three soft tossers who are struggling on the mound, a couple of soft tossers that are having success, and three hitters who have had a lot of success. Sooner or later the regression monster rears it's ugly head. Sometimes it takes a few weeks, sometimes a few months, and sometimes it might even take a year or two. Eventually though, the monster usually gets its target. Three hurlers for the Phillies, Cubs and Pirates might have been caught. The Athletics and Cardinals have good pitching staffs, and we'll highlight two names today that aren't exactly of the household variety. Offensively the Red and White Sox have two hitters that are performing fairly well while the Indians made a commitment to a hitter that has been excellent in limited work this season.
Sometimes it’s ok to take solace in a little bit of quiet. Not every day needs drama and there’s nothing wrong with the status quo. As you get older in life, you end up appreciating these days more and more. So a day after one of the quietest trade deadlines in a very long time, Thursday ended up being just as tame, if not more so, and we just had a nice, relaxing day of baseball. Sure, there may have been a few moments here and there, but certainly nothing earth-shattering. So with that, let’s just hit the fantasy highs and lows of the day as we gear up for the final two months of the season.
