    So as not to sidetrack the Royals thread more than I already have, here's a general baseball thread. :)

    I'll begin it with this fine Joey Votto tribute post. lol. Votto is awesome. It's a shame he's trapped with a crappy franchise.

    I could put this in the Royals thread .. but it's kinda painful. It's also kinda painful for Phillies fans.

    But I still love Cain.

    Altuve is chasing 400 on the road, He is hitting 415 so far on the road. I know it's early but with his speed he could get cloce. Again just on the road. Strange that he can't hit as well at home.

    Shohei Ohtani's rookie season is likely over.

    ESPN's Pedro Gomez reported early Monday morning the Los Angeles Angels expect Ohtani to undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the remainder of the 2018 season and the entire 2019 season.

    "Everything I'm hearing is that the reality is, he probably will need Tommy John surgery. ... The earliest we might see him, should he have TJ surgery, would be the 2020 season."

    The Braves continue to keep winning sooner than I (most)thought they would. They have multiple All-Stars and Freeman is firmly in the MVP race. This has led me to getting MLB.TV.

    I'm anti-Braves ... for two reasons:

    1. I lived in Philadelphia 12 years and became a huge Phillies fan.
    2. My brother-in-law is a huge Braves fan -- really only because Ted Turner made them a cable TV staple. I give him crap about that all the time -- "Dude, you never even lived anywhere near ATL!"

    But they are a tremendous story.

    That's the reason I'm a Braves fan. Grew up during the 90's, and I've been a fan ever since. I'm no phillies fan, but at least we can both root against the Nats.

    I'm hoping the Braves can hold on to the division this year and with Strasburg's injury it seems possible.

    The only team in the division I "hate," are the Mets.
