Christian Yelich has agreed to a significant extension with Milwaukie. Yelich agreed to a nine year contract extension worth $219 million on Tuesday. The new contract will allow Yelich, a native of Thousand Oaks, California, to remain with the Brewers through to the 2028 Major League Baseball regular season. There will also be an option for Yelich to return to the Brewers for the 2029 MLB season.

Sounds reasonable ...

The New York Yankees all of a sudden are the hottest team in baseball offensively. This week the Yankees pounded the Toronto Blue Jays in a three game sweep by a combined score of 43-14 at Yankee Stadium.

With the sweep, the Yankees improved to a record of 29 wins and 21 losses. The Blue Jays are still doing ok, with a record of 26 wins and 23 losses. However there is no doubt that Toronto needs to fix its pitching woes fast if they hope to be one of the 16 teams in the 2020 Major League Baseball postseason.

As a team this week, the Yankees recorded 18 home runs. That is a record for the most home runs in a series.
