    Gerrit Cole struck out 65 in April (counting the first couple days of the season in March).
    That ties Curt Schilling for the most strikeouts in an April in MLB history

    We are --
    #1 in MLB in OPS
    #1 in batting average
    #1 in on base percentage
    #1 in slugging percentage
    #2 in home runs
    12-1 in last 13 (all wins by multi-run margins)

    AJ Hinch: “Obviously, we're on a good stretch where we're playing extremely well and tough to beat."

    Seeing that combined HR stat reminds me of the season the Astros had where, as a team, they did not even hit 50 homeruns. I think it was '79 but it was definitely in that era...team leader might not have even gotten to double digits.

    On edit...yes, it was 1979. Jose Cruz hit 9 and Terry Puhl hit 8.

    Pitchers J. R. Richard and Joaquin Andujar each had two...even more amazing than pitchers having had 4 of the team total was that Andujar only had three other hits the entire season.

    Boras also kept the Astros from gaining a pick

    That was the plan all along. Teams seem to be slow on the uptick that if the player isn't signed by the start of the season the agents are going to slow-walk the process until the comp draft pick is off the table. Sort of like the agents giving the teams the finger.

    So he ended up with about half of what he was demanding from the Astros?

    And he gets to try it again before next season.

    Yeah he popped up in his first AB, I told my son he did not make the big splash that Mayfield and Suggs made (they both doubled in their first AB). My son said just wait and he was right as usual.

    I don't get how the Twins are ranked #1 when they are only playing about .500 ball against good teams.
