Cleveland turns 21, Minnesota walks it off, Rhys Hoskins keeps slugging, and Mike Zunino is good.

The Wednesday Takeaway

Read the full article...

The 1965 American League first division.

(Note: Last year, I wrote "One Entire Season of Baseball From the 1970s," reviewing the 1971 season. My goal is to repeat the exercise every summer, selecting a different decade. We'll present the 1960s version Monday through Thursday this week, five teams at a time, introducing each team with salient figures from their season. Monday's entry is here, Tuesday's entry is here, and Wednesday's entry is here.)

Cleveland wins 20 in a row, the Dodgers actually win one game, and Carlos Gonzalez shows signs of life.

The Tuesday Takeaway

The 1965 American League second division.

(Note: Last year, I wrote "One Entire Season of Baseball From the 1970s," reviewing the 1971 season. My goal is to repeat the exercise every summer, selecting a different decade. We'll present the 1960s version Monday through Thursday this week, five teams at a time, introducing each team with salient figures from their season. Monday's entry is here and Tuesday's entry is here.)

The 1965 Awards and Postseason: The 1965 MVPs were San Francisco’s Willie Mays, who topped Sandy Koufax in the National League, and Minnesota’s Zoilo Versalles, who finished ahead of teammate Tony Oliva in the American League. There was just one Cy Young award until 1967, and Koufax won it unanimously. The Dodgers’ Jim Lefebvre and Baltimore’s Curt Blefary were Rookies of the Year, easily. Mickey Mantle won the Hutch Award, Pittsburgh’s Vern Law the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award, and Koufax the Babe Ruth Award, to name three awards you probably didn’t know about that exist to this day. There have been years in which the voters pretty clearly screwed up the voting for the major awards; 1965 was not one of them.

Cleveland does it again, the Dodgers wait until the middle of the night to do their losing, and Nolan Arenado shows off.

Notes on Hudson Potts, Michel Baez, Nate Pearson, Jesus Luzardo, and more.

Hitter of the Day:

Hudson Potts, 3B, San Diego Padres (Low-A Fort Wayne): 2-4, R, 2B, HR, RBI, 2 K
We’re getting down to the dregs here in terms of still-happening playoff series providing options here, but Potts had himself yet another nice night at the dish. Heck, we might as well rename this site Hudson Potts Prospectus, what with all the hot Potts #content we’ve been churning out lately. You want some notes from the field? Boom. Or maybe you’re a longer-form fella or gal? Boom. There’s a bunch of youthful impatience underlying his present approach, but he just hit his 20th dinger as an 18-year-old in full-season ball, so perhaps some patience is warranted here.

Matthew Trueblood: Wild Card X-factors? We have an honest-to-God race for the NL's second bid now, as well as the free-for-all in the AL. Fertile ground, perhaps. Little things could tilt these races.

Your chance to get in on the ground floor of some cutting edge player evaluation.

The Nationals clinch the NL East title, the Indians' streak goes to 18, and the Tigers turn a triple play 16 years in the making.

The Weekend Takeaway

The Nationals wrapped up the National League East in superb fashion on Sunday, becoming the first team to officially enter their names in the postseason this fall. Unlike most other division leaders this month, the Nats have stayed hot, taking seven of their last 10 games and clinching a three-game set against the Phillies with an impeccable performance from Stephen Strasburg.
