Maybe ten years from now - no one can know exactly when - the last player born in the 1980s will play in his final major league game. We don't when and we don't know who. It could be someone like Giancarlo Stanton or George Springer - players born at the very end of the decade, and quite possibly good enough to play into their 40s. It could be some random relief pitcher who just goes on and on and on. Maybe some minor leaguer will suddenly develop a hellacious knuckleball, and pitch for bad teams (always the only teams that ever give knuckleballers a chance) until he's 46 or so.

The Blue Jays lost last night 6-5 in 10 innings, after rallying from a 5-0 deficit.  It was one of those games which could easily have gone the other way- the perfect launching point for the baseball-obsessed to pore through the fine details of the game to see if one can make some sense of it.

All eyes were on Ricky Tiedemann's AA debut but Cameron Eden stole the spotlight. He doubled, stole third and stole home, then followed that with a three run home run. New Hampshire won easily. Sem Robberse was on point for Vancouver who also saw Damiano Palmegiani hit a grand slam. Buffalo had just three hits while Dunedin's bullpen cost them.

Chavez Young got things started by homering in the first at-bat of the Buffalo game. Nick Podkul liked that so he homered twice. That's a win for the Bisons. New Hampshire went to the bottom of the ninth tied thanks to an eighth inning home run by Zach Britton. John Aiello liked that so he walked it off with along ball in the bottom of the ninth. Vancouver played two. Game one went to ten innings and Vancouver got the walk-off win. Jommer Hernandez hit a three run home run in the sixth in game two to help the C's sweep the doubleheader. Dunedin also played two and split. Gabriel Martinez hit his eleventh homer and hit four balls at 94.5 mph or higher.

Hitters are streaky. Your favourite slugger seems to go 3-for-5 with a double and a home run every game for a week, and then they'll go hitless for three straight games. This is normal: there are peaks and valleys to everybody's production. What separates a hitter like Mike Trout from a hitter like Santiago Espinal is how cold "cold" gets.
