Interesting Hit Frequency Math ….

10 of the top qualifying hitters have hit totals into the 70s decade.

7 of the top qualifying hitters have hit totals into the 80s decade.

5 of the top qualifying hitters have hit totals into the 80s decade.

1 alone of the top qualifying hitters have hit totals exceeding 100.

Will this be Jose Altuve’s final day as the exceptional triple digit numbers member of the flailing away “99 Hits Club” ~ and will this be the day that Jean Segura of Seattle finally does something to technicolorize his rather pale, sparse and occasional movement, but always clear presence near the top of the heap among their vaunted ranks?

Could be. Unless he’s quietly hurt, but saved from the DL. The Mariners play the Orioles in Baltimore this afternoon.


Gurriel Banging Hard on BA Leaders Door.

Yuli Gurriel’s 3 for 5 day Sunday against KC garnered him 4 RBI from a Grand Slam and two doubles to boot, lifting his season average to .306 (or just outside the Top Ten). Lets hope that Gurriel keeps his mojo working and that guys like George Springer, Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman, Josh Reddick, among others, keep pressing for the return of Astros team hitting to the summer meteor shower level.
