I dunno, but they lead the American League in homeruns...so best come correct. They seem to be for real.

edit: my larger concern is why the batters can't hit a ####ing changeup to save their lives. Not a good night at the plate.

Just FYI here are some players injured right now:

Christian Yelich
Juan Soto
Chris Sale
Alex Verdugo
Luke Voit
Mike Soroka
Eloy Jiminez
Luis Robert
Tim Beckham
Justin Verlander
Anthony Rendon
Dexter Fowler
Cody Bellinger
Jacob DeGrom
Carlos Carrasco
Noah Syndergaard
Luis Severino
Zack Britton
Bryce Harper
Mike Clevinger
Yadier Molina
Chris Archer
Stephen Strasburg

The Jays list of injured players doesn't even come close to the number on other teams. Injuries happen. It sucks that we don't get our new shiny toy right away. Personally I am enjoying seeing a bunch of different guys step up with guys being injured. Guys like Chatwood, Payamps, Castro and Thornton have all been surprisingly good!

I am optimistic Springer will be fine.

Right now it seems like half my fantasy team is injured...and this is a dynasty league. Lot's of injuries for every team. Dustin May is going for Tommy John, Sixto Sanchez has had a dead arm all year. Baseball pitcher is the most injury prone position in sports for my money.

Also lots of guys with sub 220 batting averages on pace to strike out 180 or more times.

Pretty soon the Mendoza line is going to be replaced with the thought that so long as you can keep your average above your strikeout total, you're good.

You know why pitchers are getting hurt, they're coddled from adolescence.

I'd agree this is part of it. I also think with all the analytics, spin rates, and off speed stuff that pitchers are torqueing their arms in ways they never were before. It used to be just fastball and curveball. And the fastball was 75% of the time.

Ray is just nasty tonight. 8 K's through 4. Just too bad that every ball that Oakland has hit this series seemingly has gone out.

Ray has always had trouble giving up home runs, but if you keep those to solo and he's not walking guys, it's definitely not that big of a deal. He has looked great this year.

It'd be nice if the bats didn't quit after the first inning. Hard to win games scoring 2 runs.
