At 43 home runs with 45 games remaining, Giancarlo Stanton is on pace for 60 home runs. This is what we have waited nearly a decade to see from him.
About Bobby Down
Bobby was born in Southern California in the Los Angeles area, and never wants to leave because other places are bad, especially where Kory has lived. Bobby loves baseball and the Dodgers more than just about anything. His favorite player of all-time is the best pitcher of this generation, Clayton Kershaw. If you slander Kershaw in any way, Bobby will know and will teleport into the discussion to smite you down with advanced statistics every which way. You can also catch Bobby arguing with Baseline Times’ very own Dustin Shires that all started with Tim Lincecum from years and years ago. Thanks, Dustin, this is all your fault. Bobby writes baseball articles of all kinds, though mostly filled with stats from Fangraphs. Check it out and see if you learn anything new!

The 2017 Dodgers are on pace for 115 wins and their 5th straight NL West title. If they do not end up winning the World Series, this will not be a failure.
Giancarlo Stanton hit the 38th home run of the season tonight, setting a new career high for him. With 51 games remaining, 50-plus is in reach.
Mike Trout is having a historic season with the bat, doing something only Barry Bonds has in the last 60 years. Don’t count him out for the MVP.
Despite a .206 batting average, Joey Gallo is having a good season. In fact, he might be the best low average hitter of this generation.
Cody Bellinger now has 30 home runs on the season in just 87 games. By the end of the season, he could move near the top of the rookie HR list.
There are some leaders the last 365 days you would expect, like Sale, Kershaw, and Trout. But some others that are a bit surprising to see up there.
The Dodgers were the best in July going 20-3. Jose Altuve was the best position player and James Paxton the best pitcher. Who else succeeded in July?
The Dodgers trade MLB.com #69 prospect Willie Calhoun and 2 others for 2-plus months of Texas starting pitcher Yu Darvish.
The Dodgers trade for two lefty relievers named Tony today. They get Watson from Pittsburgh and Cingrani from Cincinnati. Are they good?
