RIP Junction Jack, you creepy jackrabbit and symbol of the regrettable "railmen" identity. You aren't really missed.

Mark my words, Astros & Yankees are going to choke in the playoffs. 

 

Nats, Rockies, Twins, Orioles are my picks.

Scooter Gennett just hit his fourth homer tonight. I guess this was the logical conclusion of this crazy home run spike.

Baseball, man. Go to the yard because you never know when a guy like that will come out of nowhere and do something incredible. 

 

That was awesome. He was definitely trying to hit the fourth, overswung badly on the first two and then muscled the third pitch over the wall through sheer will and elbow grease.

 

Easily the coolest thing a Reds player has done since Todd Frazier's home run derby show in 2015.

But add it to the "history in an unfortunate jersey" list.

 

Not only camo but that Reds script instead of the classic C-Reds logo. And camo.

He went bird hunting in those jerseys then!

Cardinals drop their 7th straight and get swept by the Reds. I've had small, lingering doubts with Mike Matheny's inability to adapt late in the season or in the playoffs, but right now I'm questioning the guy's ability to manage at all. I don't see him lasting the season at this rate.

I am most certainly enjoying the Cardinals' apparent downfall, though it would be better if someone else in the division were actually winning a lot more (St. Louis is still pretty much in the thick of things) but I'll still take it.

The NL Central is still anybody's game.

The Cubs will probably figure it out and end up winning, but it's fun to see the Reds in the mix despite their trouble with starting pitcher injuries.

The O's can't win on the road.

Well Facebook, I've gotta admit - normally when someone gets a team's logo wrong it's usually an NHL team having someone else's logo, so good for you for going the opposite path.

I've pretty much stopped saying it because it's become stale and boring, but my goodness, this Giants team is absolute :censored:. 

 

AND...

Here's how to describe this year's Giants team, in one image:

The burnt out husk of a Mazda RX-7 FD sums them up. It was meant to be a high-performance machine, but inefficient/insufficient parts, bad modifications, and innate design problems all lead it to go bust in spectacular fashion, taking down some good elements with it (the RX-7's styling, Buster Posey's amazing year).

 

Even if the Giants' window is closed, three championships is an amazing takeaway from a title window. I can't really complain. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Rockies are winning the World Series. There's something about managers of losing Padres teams going to an NL West rival.

The Rockies are playing very well. I'm not sure if they have the collective pitching to make a deep run quite yet, but they keep winning and I think will certainly make the playoffs or even win the division. It would certainly be awesome to see them make a run though. 

 

Anyways, I'll admit my preseason pick of Indians-Dodgers doesn't feel as safe now. I knew the Astros would be very good, but I didn't think they'd be this very very good. I honestly feel like they would win a head-to-head series against anyone in the AL at this point - be it Cleveland, Boston, New York - and I can't not think of them as the pennant favorite right now.

It's amazing how fast Rick Porcello went from Cy Young winner, to absolute garbage. 

 

Red Sox could have had one of the best pitching lineups in the league if he was playing even half as good as last year.

To be fair, his 2015 season was equally bad, so it's not like no one saw this coming.
