Fuck yea baseball stats

MVP race is heating up for sure, in my opinion the top candidates in order are:

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury
  2. Curtis Granderson
  3. Justin Verlander
  4. Adrian Gonzalez
  5. Michael Young
  6. Jose Bautista
  7. Mark Teixeira
  8. Dustin Pedroia
  9. Miguel Cabrerra
  10. Paul Konerko
Somebody puts a gun to your head and demands you to say who is the active leader in wins in the entire MLB right now? You choke, what do you say? Roy Hallady? CC Sabathia?
You’re wrong. It’s Tim Wakefield… that’s right. Tim Wakefield. The crafty knuckeballer has 197 career wins and is creeping closer to 200. He has been in the league since 1992 when he started with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He has beaten 27 out of the 30 MLB teams. The only ones he has not beaten are: the Red Sox, the Pirate and the Astros. He had a chance last weekend to beat the Pirates but came short and the same thing this previous week against the Astros. Hall of famer or not, Wakefield certainly has had amazing durability throughout his tenure in the MLB. He will surely be missed whenever he does hang them up.
Hats off to you, Timmy.

The Red Sox are pretty clutch when it comes to the 7th inning… they have now scored 74 runs in the 7th inning this year throughout 82 games… no other team has scored more than 47.

Adrian Gonzalez has had at least 1 RBI in the last 9 games. Coincidentally the Red Sox have won all 9 of these games. Both statistics being the longest in the Majors this season.
