MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

You might think I’m going to talk about the Phillies here, but you are wrong. Instead, let’s talk about Elly de la Cruz.

This man is an incredible show to watch right now. His cycle last night propelled the Reds to a thrilling victory over the Braves in maybe the best game of the season of any team so far. I’ll admit that I was paying more attention to that game than I was the Phillies game, but it was worth it. There will come an adjustment period by the league to what he is doing right now, but holy moly is that guy fun to watch.

On to the links.
