The tater trots for August 8: late-inning heroics from Casey Kotchman; Todd Helton & David Ortiz continue their "race".

Things tend to chill out a bit on Mondays, and yesterday seemed to follow the trend. There was only one multi-home run day and not a single player hit his first career home run. You see? Boring. Well, except maybe for the seven home runs in the Rockies/Reds game in Cincinnati or the lovely trots from David Ortiz and Todd Helton or the walkoff home run or...

The tater trots for August 3. Casey McGehee had a great day, in more ways than one.

Wednesday was yet another big afternoon for home runs, with 35 hit across the league. The dog days of August are already here (and it's only August 4!). There were only three multi-home run days on Wednesday, though one of them was a three homer day from Casey McGehee.

The tater trots for April 26: a big day for multi-home run days. Now including a list of all tater trot times for the day.

There were five different players across the league on Tuesday who went home after the game celebrating a multi-home run day. It generally feels rare just seeing one person with two home runs in a game, so seeing five on the same night is pretty impressive. It's just one of those weird, random occurrences, I guess. Unless, of course, pitchers from San Diego, Texas, Chicago, Kanas City and New York all conspired together to make it a night we wouldn't forget. Sounds plausible.

A deeper look at the Hall of Fame candidacies of Todd Helton and other first basemen (active or less so) on the outside looking in.

Tuesday's piece on Todd Helton's Hall of Fame chances was greeted with enough enthusiasm to spur an installment of the Cooperstown Casebook. For a starting point, I want to revisit a line from Tuesday's piece:

On the Beat: Weekend Wrap

John Perrotto

Brewing up their latest bid for October, Milwaukee's not cruising while suffering some bruising, plus news and views from around the majors.

Ken Macha knew that he was walking into a good situation when he was hired as the Brewers' manager last November. The Brewers were coming off of their first post-season appearance in 26 years after winning the National League Wild Card. They had a talented young group of hitters, led by such stars as left fielder Ryan Braun and first baseman Prince Fielder, but Macha also knew that he was stepping into a tricky situation. For as bright as it appeared from some angles, there were also some dark clouds hanging over the team.

Expectations aren't a mile high, but doings in Denver already involve full-season hits and plenty of questions.

Dan runs down the 2007 leaderboards in baserunning metrics, and crowns a player who helped his team the most on the basepaths.

"Never trust a baserunner who's limping. Comes a base hit, and you'll think he just got back from Lourdes."

Dan examines where research on clutch hitting is now, and ranks the best in 2006.

Clutch hitting is one of those issues that just won't go away. Ever since Dick Cramer's famous study titled "Do Clutch Hitters Exist?" was published in the 1977 Baseball Research Journal there has been no end to the discussion of just what is and what isn't clutch hitting, and how it can or can't be measured.
