Rafael Devers was born in 1996. He has yet to turn 21. In his first 20 big league games, he slashed .364/.424/.727 with 8 HR (one of which was off an Aroldis Chapman 102.8 mph fastball); he even stole two bases. In his 21st and 22nd games—Sunday and Monday—Devers was 0 for 8 with 3 strikeouts. But, everyone has those nights. Let's take a look at Devers' start compared to a few players of note.

Baseball is here! And more importantly, that means the over/under game is back. It seems as though everyone is an expert this time of year. Somehow we convince ourselves that we are better at predicting baseball outcomes than everyone else. Well, AFITB is putting that to the test for the third year in a row. Think you know more about baseball than us? You probably do. But go ahead and prove it anyway.
Baseball is simply the best.
Can the playoffs get even better? Yes, if you play this game with us.
