-  There has been some talk about the possibility of a reliever, the O's Zach Britton, winning the AL Cy Young Award this year with the fairly underwhelming starting pitching field. Jeff Sullivan at Fangraphs argues why Britton, and relievers in general, should not win the Cy Young.

- Former #1 overall pick, and my #1 overall baseball name pick, Dansby Swanson will be getting called up for his major league debut

- Hunter Pence made a totally Hunter Pence-ian like play, crashing to the ground and still catching a flyball while lying flat on the ground.

- In other ridiculous catch news, Anthony Rizzo did this:
