I've been so out of it because of the quarantine and late start to the baseball season that I completely forgot Derrick Goold existed. I just stumbled upon him on Twitter and thought, "Oh yeah. I remember that guy."

Because he never ceases to amaze me...

Mike Trout is hitting .322 .369 .695 1.064 on the season. Close to 75 career WAR.

He's 5 months older than Daniel Ponce de Leon.

Garrett Crochet called up by White Sox. Going for broke. I like it.

According to Jeff Passan of ESPN, the order for the 2021 MLB Draft is "highly likely" to be determined by teams' 2020 records.

Barring a sudden winning streak, the Pirates (15-39) would be in position for the No. 1 overall pick. The Rangers currently have the second-worst record at 19-35 followed by the Red Sox (20-34), Diamondbacks (20-34), and Nationals (21-32). Vanderbilt pitchers Kumar Rocker and Jack Leiter are already being discussed as potential early first-rounders while Texas-based shortstop Jordan Lawlar is the top prep player on draft boards. There was a clause written into MLB's March agreement which would have enabled the league to determine draft order by other means, but it appears that was a contingency plan in case the 2020 season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
