Man Corey Kluber is a machine. August !2th and he's rolling at 17-4 with am ERA just above 2. Won 17 games last year as well, even with an injury that held him out close to a month.

I'm really enjoying the 12 team, no divisions setup. I currently have a neck and neck race for the top spot between Alexandria and Birmingham. Each week it seems the lead changes hands at least once. These teams are 9 games up on the rest of the league as of August 12th

The race for the 2nd wild card is just as heated with 4 to 5 teams in contention. Jackson is currently in the lead, but Shreveport, Mobile, Lake Charles Texarkana and Corpus Christi are all chomping at the bit. The rest of August and September should be exciting.

So love watching Alexandria games. The Aaron/DiMaggio part of the batting order is so fun to follow. Currently the 3-5 spots in Alexandria's batting order are Hank Aaron, Joe DiMaggio and Graig Nettles. Paul Konerko is in there as well. In fact Konerko is the Aces Home Run and RBI leader so far for the 63 season. DiMaggio is the clear cut favorite to win the batting title with a average in the .340's. Jim Rice is also a member of the Aces, but has his best days behind him. That being said, every once in a while, Rice will show flashes of his past greatness.
