We have a group of teams who were expected to contend, but have been devastated by injuries, suspensions, and extremely disappointing performances from key players: Blue Jays, Giants, Mets, Pirates, and Royals. There is still a long way to go with 140 games or so yet to be played. All of these teams were rather optimistic about their chances given their roster construction.

The Blue Jays are definitely in a hole, but reality should set in for the Orioles and Yankees at some point.

It's funny, I remember Willie Mays getting off to a very slow start in 1962. Folks started wondering if he was slowing down. But he was incredible in the second half, winding up with 49 HRs, scoring 130 runs and driving in 141. I was just reading that Ralph Kiner got off to a very bad start in 1947 having only 4 HRs and hitting below .250 at the end of May. The Pirates were going to send him to the minors, but Hank Greenberg convinced them to wait. Kiner wound up hitting .313 with 51 Hrs that year.

Right now Bryce Harper is on pace to hit 59 HRs and have 184 RBIs. Eric Thames is on pace to hit 77 HRs with 134 RBIs. Does anyone really think Harper will be hitting .418 at the end of the year?

As a native Washingtonian, born in 1950, and suffering through my youth with bad teams, then for 34 years no team, it is great to see a Washington team playing so well. Winning 9 out of 10 on the road in Atlanta, New York, and Denver was great. Just hope they can drive the Mets three games further into the cellar this weekend.

Silly me, the existing talent distribution is nothing new. From the beginnings there have been a small number of contenders, an equal number of teams around .500, and half the teams with little or no chance. Even poor teams usually have some stars and half a lineup of competent major leaguers.

Baseball is a game where the best teams lose a third of their games and the worst teams win a third. Talent levels are close enough that examples like 55-97 1938 St.Louis Browns sweeping a 3 game September series from the 99-53 World Champion New York Yankees happen every year.

Congratulations to Anthony Rendon of the Nationals on the first 10-RBI game in 10 years. 6 for 6, 3 HR's, and should have had another rbi, except that Daniel Murphy didn't want to "rub it in" against the Mets. Final score, Nats 23, Mets 5.

Which is worse, to be as bad as expected (Braves & Padres) or having the wheels fall off your contending season (Blue Jays & Giants)?

At least the A's are chipping in with occasional moments and have some young guys to root for.

I went to the aforementioned George F. Will quiz myself, and for all the incredible numbers on certain players, there was no mention of Pete Rose. He must be persona non grata because of his gambling issues. However, I did see Ken Griffey Jr. on there, another Reds player...
