Yesterday, Jason Kipnis went 2-for-4 with his 13th homer. Member when he had 11 homers going into the All-Star break and we were like, “Yo, I’d let Kipnis sleep with my baby’s mama. He earned that shizz, yo. Just make sure you change the sheets, that’s all I ask. And maybe if you could pick up some milk for my morning coffee.” Well, here’s a discussion topic: The Catcher in the Rye is neither about baseball or bread. Discuss. Here’s another: Is Kipnis all that and a bag of bagel chips or was he just a good first half with a bad case of the shpilkis in his genechtagazoink. Good question from your internal monologue. In the first half, Kipnis had a career month in May with 5 homers, 7 steals and a .295 average. If that doesn’t seem that great, it wasn’t bad when you were living it, you greedy schmendrick. But, he was playing above his head. In the beginning of the season, I gave him 14 homers for the year in his projections. I turned out to be pretty close.
