He’s battling Juan Soto, and we looked at that battle this morning. Be sure to place your vote.
Of course, there’s Miguel “King of All Extra Base Hits” Andujar over in the AL.
Miguel Andujar has 33 doubles. That’s 10 more than anyone else on the team. And he started the season at AAA.— Sweeny Murti (@YankeesWFAN) August 15, 2018
It’s a fun time to be a minor league baseball fan, watching the like of Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. and Eloy Jimenez in MiLB and then baseball’s best prospects delivering in The Show. That’s my comments for the day. What’s yours?
