Just saw Biggio's kid plays for the Blue Jays.  He's like a mid-200s or worse career hitter, including college and the minors.  How in the fuck is he playing in the bigs?  Is he a defensive guru or is it purely because of his name?

He’s mostly a utility player. And quit looking at BA, a career .755 OPS is perfectly fine for his role, regardless of last name.

ESPN+ first half grade 

Quote

Seattle Mariners: B+
Record: 51-42

Maybe this is finally the year anything does happen! The team with the majors' longest playoff drought was a miserable 29-39 through June 20, with FanGraphs' playoff odds sitting at 5.3%. The offense was terrible, and the bullpen had been producing clutch results like last season. Then the Mariners closed the first half by winning eight straight series, and the 13-game winning streak pushed those playoff odds up 63.2%. Rookie sensation Julio Rodriguez is already a huge star, an absolutely electric talent who keeps delivering big hits, like his first career grand slam the other night. The offense still needs to improve, but Jesse Winker is finally starting to hit, they'll get Mitch Haniger back at some point and Carlos Santana has been a nice addition so far. And keep an eye on Robbie Ray: In his past seven starts, the Mariners have gone 6-1 and he has a 1.36 ERA and .151 average allowed. He's looking like an ace who could start -- dare we say it -- the first game of a playoff series.
