Take it to the bank, assuming your bank isn't underwater due to rising ocean levels.

The main takeaway from this is probably that there are going to be some amazing pennant races in our lifetimes, knock on wood. The other takeaway is that I must be an amazing prognosticator if I'm good enough to put these out now.

Almost everything done has been done more than once.

On Patriots Day, April 18, Boston’s Clay Buchholz walked the second Toronto batter he faced, Josh Donaldson. Jose Bautista batted next, and he grounded into a 5-4-3 double play.

In the fourth inning, Donaldson walked again. Bautista followed with a 6-4-3 double play.

In the sixth, Michael Saunders singled, and after Donaldson lined out, Bautista grounded into a 4-3 double play.

Three at bats, three GIDPs. How far was Bautista from a single game record? Pretty close, it turns out. A quick check from Baseball Reference’s Play Index indicates that the record is four, held by Joe Torre, back when he was a Met.

There’ve been over 210,000 major league games played since 1876, with 18 or more individual lines for each one of them. More precisely, there have been nearly 176,000 games played since the Retrosheet era, for which we have fairly complete (and Play Index-able) records, began in 1913. And in that time, Joe Torre, on July 21, 1975, is the only player to have had a day like this:
