Tyler Naquin’s seventh-inning hit had enough distance to clear the fence. The question was whether or not it would stay fair. For those in attendance who wanted an answer, all they had to do was listen. The ball banged off the foul pole, and Naquin had a three-run home run.

George Springer's barely played for the Blue Jays. Blake Snell's off to a snail-like start for the Padres. And the number of imaginary rats/raccoons/possums at Citi Field nearly mirrors Francisco Lindor's home run total. It’s way too soon to call these offseason moves busts, and it’s way too soon to
