Sunday Notes: Forsythe’s Breakout, Britton’s Aim, Bullpen Banter, more

Logan Forsythe isn’t sure he can explain his breakout. At least not definitively. The Tampa Bay infielder points to consistency, but that’s more byproduct than causation. He indirectly cites BABiP – “I’ve had some balls fall this year” – but it’s not as though his .323 mark is outlandish. Opportunity might be a bigger factor. His high-water mark for seasonal plate...

Alex Gordon carted off field after suffering left groin strain

This certainly isn’t how the Kansas City Royals wanted to go into the All-Star break. Actually, there’s no point of the season during which the best team in the AL wants to lose its best player.

Rays, Padres Fill Needs And Challenge One Another

If you had told me at the start of this week that Logan Forsythe was going to headline a seven-player trade, I’d have said that you just must be bored because nothing has been going on. After all, how often do seven-player trades happen? I mean, that’s just crazy talk. That it did actually happen, […]
