Power Rankings
Gregory Polanco has an extra-base hit in eight of his last 10 games. Perhaps the 23 year old is starting to come around.
If you wanted a big punishment for these Pirates being swept by Milwaukee, scroll down to the Brewers comment for an interesting revelation.
They slayed the dragon, taking three of four from the Cardinals, and it was enough to convince me to move St. Louis down for the first time in months. Cue the idiotic "not even in first place!" comments.
No, you still aren't allowed to give up on Gregory Polanco. He's 23 years old, people.
They deserve a lot of credit for the Francisco Cervelli pickup. He's now hitting .298 with a .371 OBP and also works real well with a very good pitching staff. He's not Russell Martin, of course, but he's not a huge downgrade either.
Anyone have Starling Marte leading the team in bombs in the last week of June? Baseball is fun, remember?
The A.J. Burnett story has the potential to get real cool. He's never even been an All-Star, let alone gotten Cy Young consideration.
Regardless of what I said in the intro, I still trust that they're more the hot streak than the bad stretches. I wouldn't be surprised if they took the Central, though it's obviously a big hole right now.
Andrew McCutchen hit .194/.302/.333 in April. In May? .330/.419/.566. Through two games in June, he's 5-for-7 with a double and a triple. If you know of anyone who traded him away in fantasy baseball after the slow start, please mock that person mercilessly.
And here they come. This is a playoff-caliber roster, so it was only a matter of time.
