The MLB Good, Bad & the Ugly is back for the 2015 Season & you see somethings don’t change at all. Thanks to ESPN.com for stats that’s is in this article.

The Good: Adrian Gonzalez rolling in the first week of the 2015 MLB Season- Gonzalez made history by being the first player in major league history with five homers in the season’s first three games. After hitting a solo home run in his first three at-bats against Andrew Cashner, Gonzalez hit an RBI single against Frank Garces. The one-time Padres star has a .342 average, 13 home runs and 40 RBI in 50 career games against San Diego. Gonzalez rankings in the following categories after Week 1:

1st in NL in BA (.609)
1st in NL in HR (5)
4th in NL in RBI (7)
1st in NL in R (8)
7th in NL in BB (4)
1st in NL in OBP (.667)
1st in NL in SLG (1.391)
1st in NL in OPS (2.058)

The Bad: Washington Nationals Hitting after the first five games- The Nationals still are having trouble with hitting & defense, but mainly hitting. The Nats rank last in the MLB in RBI’s at 9, Last in Batting Average at .183, Last in OBP at .239 & only scored 9 runs. Just Bad for the Nats so far at 2-4 record

The Ugly: Chicago White Sox Pitching after their first five games- The White Sox are lucky to be at 2-4 with the pitching they have had so far, their starter ERA is at 6.35 ERA & their relievers are at a whopping 6.59 ERA, ranking them last in the MLB at 6.43 ERA. The White Sox has given up 31 Runs with 31 Earned Runs. Also opponents batting average is at .306 pct. Just Ugly so far for the Pale Sox.
