It is my birthday, and more than anything, I’d like to see some pitchers get healthy!

And if you are lucky enough to have a pitcher who is great and young and you are in a pennant race… go for it!

That and more on the birthday edition of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

David Price, Miguel Cabrera, Bronson Arroyo, Curtis Granderson, David Ortiz, Ubaldo Jimenez, Emilio Bonifacio and Mike Leake all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.

2014’s Top Home Run Hitters In The MLB: AL/NL, HR Streaks (1 Active) + Multi HRs Games

Brandon Moss has unleashed some serious power in the Bay Area since becoming  a member of the A's.  He has clubbed 59 HRs and added 172 RBI in just 844 AB.  This means he is averaging a big fly for every 14.3 AB, and about an RBI every 4.90 AB.  This is outstanding production.  In 550 AB, he would club about 38 HRs and add about 112 RBI.  Oakland has him under team control for 2015 and 2016 in Arbitration before he can hit Free Agency.  Moss has 8 HRs (2 last night) and knocked in 33 - while carrying a 3 Slash of .286/.364/.526 - which is close to his .894 Lifetime OPS with the A's,

Brandon Moss has unleashed some serious power in the Bay Area since becoming a member of the A’s. He has clubbed 59 HRs and added 172 RBI in just 844 AB. This means he is averaging a big fly for every 14.3 AB, and about an RBI every 4.90 AB. This is outstanding production. In 550 AB, he would club about 38 HRs and add about 112 RBI. Oakland has him under team control for 2015 and 2016 in Arbitration before he can hit Free Agency in 2017. Moss has 8 HRs (2 last night) and knocked in 33 this season – while carrying a 3 Slash of .286/.364/.526 – which is close to his .894 Lifetime OPS with the A’s,

Brandon Moss continued to raise his stock in the realms of the power hitting players pantheon Tuesday by doing yard work twice.

David Ortiz did all he could to help Boston win with a 2 HR effort.  There you go, looking at his year numbers for 2014, as they bare resemblance to his career 3 Slash.

The only active MLB’er to carry HRs in consecutive games this day is Mets OF Curtis Granderson.

This fine gentlemen showed the New York fans what they are missing, as he has clubbed shots over the wall in back to back games.

Granderson had back to back 40+ HR campaigns with the Bronx Bombers, and will always be compared to Carlos Beltran in the next 3 years.  They both have 5 HRs – and Granderson has 4 more RBI, while Beltran has better averages.

Beltran is also hurt now with a bone spur.  The Yankes felt his postseason pedigree was the deciding factor of signing him over Granderson.

Both Ortiz and Victor Martinez climbed into the top 5 in HRs last evening.

All 5 HR streaks ended for the guys who had walked into the night from previous games – including C.J. Cron losing his consecutive games bid via pinch hitting against the Phillies. Read the rest of this entry
