NL Standings and Team Stats

The Mets have won 5 more games than their run differential would predict. Hopefully the Phillies can help close that gap for them.

Our favorite National

From this article at FanGraphs -- top 10 offensive seasons in MLB history by 19-year olds, and where Harper's first 28 games rank. Interestingly, though in a very small sample, FG doesn't like Harper's fielding, with -5.0 UZR, 14th worst out of 133.

Upcoming Milestones

Jimmy Rollins
Needs 5 more stolen bases (14 for the year) to tie dead-ball era outfielder Sherry Magee for 3rd on the Phillies' all-time list at 387, behind Billy Hamilton (508) and Ed Delahanty (412). In fact Rollins has been the Phillies' leader for the post-1920 era ever since he passed Larry Bowa's 288 back in 2008. Surprising perhaps, but Richie Ashburn only stole 199 with the Phillies, partly because he played in an era where there was much less stealing. He led the league once, in his 1948 rookie season, with 32.

Roy Halladay
(Still) needs 10 more strikeouts for 2,000 in his career. He will become the 67th pitcher to reach 2,000, and the 5th who is still active (Jamie Moyer 2,434, Andy Pettitte 2,262, CC Sabathia 2,082, and Kevin Millwood 2,011). Fingers crossed that he gets there soon.

Juan Pierre
Needs to score 5 more runs to reach 1,000 for his career (he would become the 27th active player with 1,000+).
