What’s Rob Reading?

Aaron Judge (TRADING CARD DB)“Circling the Bases as Baseball Nears Its Midpoint”
By Benjamin Hoffman, New York Times

“The All-Star break has typically been used to split up baseball’s first and second halves. While that has always been misleading — teams often play around 90 games in the first half, leaving only 72 for the second half — it is even more extreme this season as the All-Star Game won’t be held until July 19, the latest it has been played in a full season since 1977. As teams should reach their actual midpoint of 81 games early next week, it is a good time to look around the majors for the most intriguing plotlines to a season that had seemed in jeopardy of not being played as recently as early March.”
