All things considered, Sanchez is the fastest player in MLB history to hit 20 home runs.
It's just been an unimaginable rookie campaign for Aaron Judge and the future looks bright for him and the Yankees organization.
On January 28, 1901 - two years before the inaugural World Series - the American League was founded.
"We're going to root each other on, but this is a competition", Judge said. Last year introduced a new bracketed format, and it brought some life back to the event. The Rays' first baseman spoke his mind when asked.
Although the high strikeout totals don't show it, Judge has had much better plate discipline. Cole also delivered a tiebreaking, two-run single to cap the Bucs' four-run fourth.
Is choosing Sanchez over Morrison particularly fair? No.
Not only is there much more power this year, but size is on the rise. That the Rays didn't do enough to campaign for him.
Sanchez, who has belted 13 homers in 2017, is one season removed from going deep 11 times during a 15-game stretch in August. "That was a month and a half ago". David Villa, on a penalty kick, and defender Maxime Chanot scored for New York City.
As for whether Morrison has a case over Sanchez's qualifications, Sanchez said, "the question really should be toward them (MLB) and let them answer that".
Toronto's 22-year-old closer, Roberto Osuna, got Judge on a check swing on a 2-2 slider for the last out. New England lost its fourth consecutive game.
Dion Waiters is staying with the Miami Heat.
In his fifth start after missing two months with elbow inflammation, Lugo required eight pitches to retire Washington's first five batters.
Arguably the largest stumble of the past decade was in 2008. And that's what our ballpark is. However, the bracket has not. The eight participants have already been announced.
New York trailed 5-0 before the homer. Derailed by a biceps injury in April, he's picked up almost where he left off-in his young career, he's averaging a home run every 12 at-bats.
That could create plenty of interest in itself regardless of what market a team plays in.
The NHL's reigning scoring champ has signed a long-term contract after just two years in the league. That likely makes Sanchez either the six or the seven.
