Playing in the major leagues until the age of 40 is an accomplishment in itself. Playing at an elite level, that’s just unheard of. Well, Nelson Cruz isn’t like every player.

At the age of 39 last year, Cruz finished the season with 41 homers and 108 RBI. He’s picked up right where he left off so far this season, including yesterday. On Sunday, Cruz had one of the best games of his career. He finished with two homers, seven runs driven in and two doubles.... at 40!

The mystery surrounding Justin Verlander is sure interesting. Earlier today, it was reported he’d be out for the remainder of the season with an elbow injury.

Then, just a few hours later, Verlander tweeted saying that those reports were false.

Have we seen the last of Verlander in 2020? I’m not sure. This will be something to keep an eye on.

We had our very first socially-distanced altercation on Sunday. It went exactly how you thought it would go.
