Can I state just how stupid it is to have an 11:30 AM start? I understand that the game is on Peacock, but does that mean it has to be that early of a start? Hammy said that they'll have their 7th inning stretch before most games get started.
The Cubs beat reporter for The Athletic has a theory that the team believes this year's baseballs have a dead spot in the exact same spot, which is in the same place where Reyes makes his contact. His flyballs have distanced about twenty feet shorter than his career norm.
They helped Reyes adjust his swing slightly away from that dead spot.
The youth has certainly brought about a new, exciting flair to The Cleveland Baseball Team. They've been fun to watch. I enjoy good pitching and the "small ball" approach - just slap the ball and run like the wind! I would much rather watch games like that than HR after HR. This team has definitely delivered on that front this year.
