    Nice piece at the start of the broadcast where the Angels crew discussed the way Trout and Votto hit calling them two of the best hitters in the game. Then Votto steps up and bam.

    Straily's home run regression has arrived. Two gone, then a double.

    Let's hope it's not too bad. I'm hopeful.

    To be fair, the two guys who hit him out of the park can hit anyone out of the park

    Yeah Straily gave up HR to two guys that might both be top 5 all-time in HR when all is said and done.

    For all the bad games we've sat through this year, it sucks that this one isn't on TV. Potentially fun matchup with some big fireworks already.

    Yeah, but when they add up the homers allowed at the end of the season, they all count.

    Straily's a fly ball pitcher, has to keep the homers within reason. So far this year, so good. Hope he keeps it up.

    I think the point was, giving up HR to those HOF is not enough to announce regression has arrived. It happens.
