By Mike Podhorzer

Published: Aug 25, 2016, 8:15 am EDT

It’s not an outlandish question to ask. Over the last 30 days, which spans five starts and 32.1 innings, Marcus Stroman has posted the third highest strikeout rate in baseball and the lowest SIERA.

Gary Sanchez Is No Jesus Montero99999

By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Aug 24, 2016, 3:19 pm EDT

Jesus Montero is still just 26 years old, and he’s having a pretty decent season at the plate. He’s batting over .300, and he has his OBP close to .350 and his slugging percentage close to .450. All things considered, that’s not a bad campaign. But for the fact that Montero has spent the summer […]
