Brew Crew + Rays Eliminated From MLB Shutout Survivor 2016 – (19 Teams Left): Cubs/Rangers Step Closer To Win MLB Runs Scoring Survivor 2016

It is no surprise to our website that the Rays are struggling offensively, and were finally knocked out of the Shutout Survivor competition. How does that Infield look now - with Brad Miller and Logan Morrison hit under .100 - and barely hitting the ball at all. We said they lost their 3 best Batting Average players last year (where they still finished 14th), and also spoke of the Starting Pitching being overrated. We are right thus far, but we will await the rest of the year.

We said they lost their 3 best Batting Average players last year (where they still finished 14th in total team offense), and also spoke of the Starting Pitching and Bullpen being overrated – and suffering talent losses as well. We are right thus far, but we will await the rest of the year.

I said it yesterday that last year the clubs were dropping more like flies than this year.  Yesterday two more clubs were zeroed off by opponents, and thus eliminated from the MLB Shutout Survivor.

The Brewers were clipped 7 – 0 by Jaime Garcia, and Danny Salazar coupled with some brilliant late inning relief,  carved up the Rays for a 6 – 0 bagel.  We are still awaiting outcomes for teams that were shutout in Game 8 and Game 9 – as the Tribe is only at 7 games played themselves.

The Padres are clubhouse leaders for Shutouts against for the whole MLB, and are making history in doing so.  They are the first club to score jack squat in 5 of their 1st 10 contests.  Good news was they played some games at Coors Field last week – or it could have been worse.

Frankly I am amazed this squad lasting so long in this competition with what kind of lineup their putting forth on a daily basis. They did start off the 1st 2 series at hitter friendly - Mlller Park. They were handled to the tune of just one hit yesterday in their loss by Jaime Garcia of the Cardinals.

Milwaukee did start off the 1st 2 series at hitter friendly – Mlller Park. They were handled to the tune of just one hit yesterday in their loss by Jaime Garcia of the Cardinals – who tossed a Complete Game Shutout.

Chicago-Cubs-ALT4

I personally think the Cubs won the 2016 MLB Runs Scoring Survivor – by virtue of tallying their 8 runs scored variation last night.  With just 9 games played – and 8 different totals already crossed off, they need just 0, 1 and 3 runs scored in  games to complete the task.

Unfortunately these amount of plated guys in a match – are ones they don’t want anytime soon with that potent power.  They are up against Colorado in a weekend series at Wrigley Field this weekend, so maybe they will go o’fer on adding a new mark to the list – with offensive outbursts.

The Cubs do play St. Louis early next week in a great NL Central showdown.  We will keep you posted.

Texas did match them for the lead with 8 variations (even though they have played one more game) and just need 9 runs, 10 runs and to be shutout in scenarios.  The Rangers will continue a 4 game series against the Baltimore Orioles this weekend.  They may have a shot to knock off some more totals.  Although that 9 run mark is still the toughest one on the board to shake down.

Detroit keeps on scoring 7 runs in a game (3rd time this season Thursday), and the top a list of 4 other clubs that only have 4 different run results and are tied for last.  The Padres, Twins (who have still yet to score more than 3 runs in a game this year), Washington (although they are 8 – 1 still) and Tampa Bay all trail this competition.

At the end of this article you can take our polls to vote which club you think will be blanked last (There is also a poll for 1st to win the MLB Runs Scoring Survivor.)

If the clubs tie on the game number, it will be the number of runs allowed that will determine their placing.  If still tied, team ERA will be the next tiebreaker.

I am happy to be back at the helm of the MLB Reports, after completing my record 224 Games in the MLB Trip in 2015.  It was the 4th time I have seen all 30 MLB Parks since 2008. 

During that time away I was fortunate to do 100 Media Interviews and be named the Baseball Blogger Alliance President.
