MLB News: Bogaerts' game of thongs

The Tigers ignore sabermetrics, Ryu is still really good, and you won't believe what the Yankees did.

It's "Casual Friday," kids, you really didn't need to get all dressed up on my account. Except for you ... yes, you. You shine up like a brand new penny.

(Numbers next to team names are taken from Fangraphs and represent the team's percent chance of winning the World Series)

Detroit Tigers (15%)

Verlander got a win, Nathan got a save, and Kinsler got four RBI's - clearly, this team wins games by ignoring sabermetrics.

Boston Red Sox (7%)

Who wants to talk about baseball when Xander Bogaerts is tweeting (then quickly deleting) pictures of thong-wearing butts? The NSFW image is out there on the Internet. The SFW image is below:

Philadelphia Phillies (0%)

Won 1-0 over the Braves, after losing 1-0 to the Braves the night before. It's nice to see teams looking after each other's Pythagorean Expectation like that.

Toronto Blue Jays (3%)

They would have scored some runs in the 7-0 loss to Minnesota, but do you know how high the HST is right now?

Los Angeles Dodgers (11%)

"Ryu dominated." You're either reading an MLB headline, or you're browsing a Street Fighter forum.

St. Louis Cardinals (8%)

792-4859 - The phone number of a Waffle House in Texas, and also Jhonny Peralta's runs, hits, doubles, home runs, RBI's, walks, and strikeouts. While you're contemplating that, pass me the syrup.

New York Yankees (4%)

In the top of the second, they hit two triples. In the bottom of the second, they turned a triple play. Yeah, sure, the one night in five years that I didn't bet money on that happening.
