Bammer, you should give the Bregman episode of Collin McHugh’s podcast a listen.

Can you please summarize it for me?

McHugh is a great host regardless of guest, and as an insider he can get players to talk candidly about life on and off the field. It’s not a super baseball-y podcast, but of course he gets into that too.

Bregman rises to McHugh’s maturity level in this episode and it’s actually a really good conversation. You get the sense that Bregman is a super disciplined guy and is just being a young player having fun and enjoying the fruits of his success thus far.

(He does say “100%” too much in this thing though. After about the fifteenth time you start to really cringe. Otherwise, all good.)

Meh. Sounds like a tool. And that grand slam Altuve just hit was luck.

Prior to tonight’s result, my CBS Sports app now has the M’s playoff chances projected at 53.7%.

About a week ago it was 7.1%.

This offense is on fire. I can literally turn on the tv, see that they are behind, walk the dog, come back to a winning score and not be surprised in the least.

You can be an Astros fan, obviously. Have fun with it. But seriously, stop liking Bregman. Fkn tool.

No chance, bammer. I stood at Minute Maid and waited patiently for a hit during his first MLB at-bat, and then the next one, and the next one, and the next one. He went hitless that game and would end up going 0-17 before he finally got one, and then he never looked back. He’s a fun guy to watch and I’ll bet anyone in that dugout would tell you he’s a fun teammate to have.

That being said, I can definitely see his persona translating poorly to fans around the league. He’s not a Votto level troll but he’s getting there.

Chris Davis's hit at Fenway yesterday re-calibrated a lot of the baseball juju around the league.
