Out of Left Field: Notes from around baseball

  • Adam Wainwright hasn't thrown a pitch this year, and Chris Carpenter is 1-5 ... yet the Cardinals lead the Central by two games.
  • The AL and NL saves leaders, respectively, are Brandon League and Leo Nunez. Can you name their respective teams?
  • The Yankees have 83 home runs; no other team has more than 65, and Oakland has just 32. 
  • There are three teams with just four triples on the season; Jose Reyes has eight.
  • At 19-6, the Brewers are on pace to go 62-19 at home this season. Unfortunately for them, they've won fewer road games than any team other than the Royals.
  • Just as we all figured before the season started, ESPN's Cy Predictor has the following pitchers at the top of the heap in the AL:
-Jered Weaver (LAA)
-Michael Pineda (SEA)
-CC Sabathia (NYY)
-Trevor Cahill (OAK)
-Josh Tomlin (CLE)
  • And for no apparent reason, here is a video of the longest home run in the majors this year. Wow.
