JJ Comments 1
Tony: They're starting to run away with the East.
JJ: Get Sabathia back soon, but could use additional SP.
Tony: Will they land Hamels or another high-end SP?
JJ: Solidly a top-2 team. Need Hamilton to get going again.
Tony: Strasburg could be dynamic in the bullpen when he's done starting.
JJ: Maybe Strasburg should hit after 160 IP: Has a 1.102 OPS.
Tony: Youkilis best deal of the year so far.
JJ: Joey Votto has somewhat close to Ruthian OBPSLG numbers.
Tony: Mike Trout is amazing, but SP issues creeping up.
JJ: Clear favorites for the first Wild Card.
Tony: The Cutch is The Bomb.
JJ: Very close to Yankees, Rangers in expected W-L.
Tony: They've had rough luck at SS this year.
JJ: Would be ironic if Sheets cools interest in Greinke from MIL.
Tony: Votto injury is, like, the worst buzzkill ever.
JJ: Andrew McCutchen: .371.423.651, 21 HR. Wow.
Tony: This team will go as far as Lincecum's right arm will allow.
JJ: Lincecum looked good in last start, can it last?
Tony: Will Kemp, Ethier stop recent slide?
JJ: Still need another SP, but they look to be back.
Tony: Is this the hot streak we've been waiting for?
JJ: Fading fast. Will need help just to reach playoffs at this point.
Tony: Don't seem like a contender right now.
JJ: Still hanging around WC battle, but for how long?
Tony: Curious to see what they'll do before deadline.
JJ: Their undoing, currently? 6-14 vs. AL Central.
Tony: Can Ellsbury, Crawford inject life into this team?
JJ: Recent hot streak has them as a legit WC contender.
Tony: Just hanging around, but for how much longer?
JJ: Don't sleep on them. They'll be in it in two months.
Tony: OK, this is where they regress now. Right?
JJ: Santana's ERA above 5 since throwing no-no.
Tony: Not a contender, despite Ike Davis' turnaround.
JJ: Still like them for second WC when they get healthy.
Tony: Hottest team in baseball right now.
JJ: 12-16 vs. division. Good team in wrong division.
Tony: They need Morrow back, like...now.
JJ: Hanging on by a thread, now third in AL Central.
Tony: Yep, they're sellers at the deadline.
JJ: Could get a bounty for Greinke, but not out of race yet.
Tony: It's a circus in Miami, right Bryce Harper?
JJ: From a distance, Upton's downturn is just confounding.
Tony: Swept by Cubs? Ouch...
JJ: Getting healthy, but may be too late.
Tony: I'm not ready to count them out just yet.
JJ: A rudderless team too concerned with pine tar.
Tony: Hosmer was off to 0-for-11 start in 2nd half.
JJ: A future rotation of FelixHultzenWalker should be fun.

Tony: King Felix is re-crowned.
JJ: Getting killed in division, have an 11-21 record in AL Central.
Tony: Would they listen to offers on Mauer ever?
JJ: Trade bait? Liriano has 2.83 ERA since return to rotation.
Tony: How many trade pieces do they really have?
JJ: Chase Headley would be a great get for a contending team.
Tony: They're just lucky 'Stros are around.
JJ: Pomeranz a bright spot in a war zone of a rotation.
Tony: Don't see them climbing out of here anymore.
JJ: Back to where they started the year: dead last.
