Best of the Week: 8/11/2019 – 8/17/2019


This past week, Gleyber Torres became tied for the most home runs against a single team in one season when he hit his 13th home run against the Baltimore Orioles on Monday. (It was also his third of the day against the O’s.) The record of 14 was set by Lou Gehrig against the Indians in 1936.

As one writer put it, “Gleyber Torres owns the Baltimore Orioles now.” The Ringer went so far as to investigation the question, “What if Gleyber Torres Played Only the Orioles?” (The answer: 117 home runs.) Here are a few of the reactions to this feat, not only to Torres, but to Orioles announcer Gary Thorne.
