Tatis Against the Best

So the fierce baseball rivalry between the LA Dodgers and San Diego Padres continued Thursday through Sunday. Tatis’ homer off the great Walker Buehler, the starter at the top of the Dodger rotation, about 10 days ago was only the beginning.

Over the last four days he hit two off Kershaw, two off Bauer and one off May. Kershaw and Bauer hold Cy Young awards and May appeared unhittable.

Those shots included the hardest measured ball ever hit off Kershaw in his entire career. On top of that Fernando Tatis’ first year of hitting stats place him ahead of Mickey Mantle’s stats over his first full year of play.

If anyone doubted the wisdom of his recent 14 year contract for 340 million dollars, I rest my case.
