MLBbro Giancarlo Stanton kept the Yankees in the second Wild Card spot by punishing the archrival Red Sox in a 8-3 win at Fenway on Friday night. The former MVP went 3-for-5 with 4 RBI, including a three-run homer. Bronx Bombers remain one game ahead of Toronto and 1.5 ahead of surging Seattle with 8 games left in regular season.
Charles Nyonga gives his Two Cents on Cubs blue chip prospect Brennen Davis, who won the MLB All-Star Futures Game in July after slamming two homers.
Davis tore through Double AA this season. He is currently the No.14 prospect in all of baseball (as of August 24th) and the King Fish in the entire Cubs organization.
Marcus Siemen had two homers, including a Grand Salami, and 5 RBI in an 8-0 win over the Yankees on Labor Day. He hit another blast on Tuesday, giving him 38 homers, just five behind the MLB record for second baseman (43) held by Davey Johnson.
