    The owners have signed off on everything Manfred has done. I you really want to talk about "best interests..." and such recently, look back to what happened to Fay Vincent after Giamatti died, then we got Bud Selig and the owners have run the show as a group ever since.

    It's uncanny, not unlike a certain manager. :)

    This is interesting: i've been in and out of watching the game today because of other responsibilities. I've watched 4 innings out of 6.1, and I've seen 0 homeruns live. The score based on what I've watched live is 2-0 Orioles.

    To be fair, I have listened to some on the radio, and have been following gamecast otherwise...but still, seems almost impossible.

    Marwin and Correa are in close competition to see who has to buy lunch for the team tomorrow.

    Roger Clemens I think, and Bags in '94 before that . And I don't think Beltran's or Randy's half seasons approach Altuve's full.

    Single season OPS+ goes Bagwell, Bagwell, Altuve ('16), Bagwell, Wynn, Bagwell, then 4 Berkman years with 1 Cedeno mixed in. All of Bagwell's years were at the Dome.
