Default Joey Votto - Incredible streak for common play!

I personally think this is front-page worthy. What a remarkable stat and even more remarkable is Votto's bat control!

He's a Canadian. He says nice things about everything and everyone.

I don't know about that. And hitting only 8 infield pop-ups in 9+ seasons is pretty remarkable.

First time pop up to his position, 1st base, in over 8600 ABs? I think that is a fairly great stat. It is wonderful the world has both chocolate and vanilla or Cracker Jacks and Curtis Irelands......

In a similar vein, Joey Gallo just ended his streak of no sacrifice flies at 1300+ PAs. Since the sac flies became official in 1954, this was the longest-ever streak. Pretty remarkable for a guy, when he DOES make contact, usually hits the ball in the air.

I am lucky enough, if you want to call it that, to have both Votto and Gallo on my Net54 Fantasy team.

At least the end of Gallo's statistical anomaly actually helped


-But not much

mired in 13th place - out of 14. UGH!

I wish I only had 8 pop ups on my computer in a week. Now that would be a newsworthy record.
