Eddie Rosario has more walks than Joey Votto.

 

edit: Oh right, "numbers."

 

Rosario has 2 more walks and as many strikeouts as Joey Votto. There.

O/U on number of games that stays true?

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Along with the 2nd highest strength or schedule in baseball based on record of opponents and opponents of opponents.

The Twins have the best record in baseball.

The Twins' magic number to clinch first place is 149*. Let the countdown begin!

 

* The traditional magic number for outright clinch would be 158, but the following site incorporates the knowledge that division rivals play each other frequently so that some wins count twice toward clinching: https://lyle.smu.edu...can_league.html

The entirety of TD, I think. I don't recall a single person predicting anything under 104 wins.

Twins batters have a BABIP of .307, pitchers have a BABIP of .220. Versus a league average of .276. This helpful trend will obviously continue.

Jason Castro, with 0.5 fWAR, has, on a Fangraphs $/WAR basis, earned 1/6 of his contract.

 

Put another way, Castro is on pace to return $299.5 million in surplus contract value.
