For now, there’s surely little comparison between the two players. At some point, however, the Packers need to see what Love can do.

Belt, however, contains multitudes; many of his numbers (high walk totals, high OBP, stellar defense) make him an advanced-metric all star. But the optics don't always match the metrics. His swing, a quick scythe, ends immediately after contact and is dropped like an apology. There are a lot of called third strikes (his K-rate this season -- a career-high 32.4% -- is second-highest on the team), and a lot of slow, bat-dragging walks back to the dugout wearing the facial expression of a kid who knows he's going to get yelled at in the minivan the whole ride home.Arizona Diamondbacks

Alex Bregman is a steal at $13 on Yahoo, and he will be among the most popular hitters of the day at the hot corner. Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and Yuli Gurriel all have had sustained success against opposite-handed hurlers throughout their careers. Finally, look to Yordan Alvarez and Kyle Tucker, who consistently are eschewed by the average gamer when they are in lefty/lefty matchups. Alvarez is equally adept against pitchers of either handedness, and Tucker has a .205 ISO across his last 228 plate appearances against fellow lefties.Los Angeles Dodgers

The Padres, at least statistically, appear to be an exception to bad baserunning. Through June 6, they led the major leagues in stolen bases by a wide margin. They went first-to-third more often than any other major league team, and they had made fewer outs on the bases -- eight -- than any other team, 20 fewer times than the Yankees.

"All our prayers go out to him," manager Dusty Baker told reporters, according to the Houston Chronicle. "I went down and prayed by the water, by Lake Erie there yesterday, that it wasn't too serious or take too long.

"Well he's always capable of being tough," Boone said. "Obviously a hard thrower, cutter, split, curveball. I actually thought we had a lot of good at-bats, especially the top half of the order. Got ourselves into some situations where we had a chance to score, just couldn't get that big one tonight. He was able to hold us off enough there. When you're not hitting a ton of long balls, you got to be able to cash in when you get those opportunities."

Rogers: There won't be any choice but to add. Wrigley Field is about to be packed for the next 3½ months, and you don't trade away talent when you're in first place. In reality, being near the top of the standings is no shock, only how they've gotten there, because even after trading Yu Darvish, the Cubs had plenty of talent. It helps to reside in a mediocre division. So yes, augmenting the roster would be in order. The only question is how far will Jed Hoyer go? Will he empty the farm for a couple of rentals? Doubtful. So it could be additions around the edges. And the bigger question is what if the Cubs are three to five games out of first place come late July? Then the decision becomes much tougher. Focusing on the future would be more likely.Arizona Diamondbacks
