Random Elias statistical fun today:  Giancarlo Stanton’s 30th homer yesterday marks the second straight year he’s hit 30.  And it makes him the fifth player to ever have consecutive 30-home run seasons before they turned 23.  The other four: Miguel Cabrera, Albert Pujols, Eddie Mathews and Jimmie Foxx.

One day, after The Great Mushroom War, people in the Land of Ooo are gonna be singing songs of this kids’ exploits around campfires.
