Power Rankings
Five teams have at least four players with 30-plus doubles this season. Four -- Tigers, Brewers, Cardinals and Dodgers -- are playoff contenders. The other is the Twins (Brian Dozier, Eduardo Escobar, Kurt Suzuki and Trevor Plouffe).
Second basemen in MLB history who have had at least one season with 30 doubles, 20 homers and 20 steals: Joe Morgan, Ryne Sandberg, Juan Samuel, Craig Biggio, Roberto Alomar, Damion Easley, Ray Durham, Alfonso Soriano, Brandon Phillips, Ian Kinsler, Dustin Pedroia and ... Brian Dozier.
Look at the bright side: There are only three more years left on Ricky Nolasco's deal. That's good, right?
How many pitchers have more than 135 strikeouts and fewer than 20 walks in all of baseball? One. Phil Hughes, with 148 and 15.
After jumping from Double-A, how about the start to Kennys Vargas' big-league career. Very impressive.
Byron Buxton promoted to Double-A. Get excited!
Real nice, probably under-the-radar, smallish extension for Kurt Suzuki. I was a big fan of that move.
The only Twins player to ever have a season with at least 25 homers and 25 steals was Corey Koskie, who did so in 2001 with 26 and 27. Brian Dozier is at 19 and 16 right now.
I love Josh Willingham as a trade target for an NL team with very little to give up in money or prospects. Buy him low as a rental.
I can't say enough how much I loved seeing Glen Perkins pitching to Kurt Suzuki to close down the All-Star Game. What a great moment to end a great game.
