Enough, in fact, that he was voted as a starter in the 2017 MLB All-Star Game.

But let there be no doubt who his biggest fan is. That title belongs to Tommy Carlson, a two-year-old from Parker, Colo., who is now known in Rockies country as the “Charlie Blackmon Kid.”

That’s because Carlson recently became an internet sensation after a video of him cheering for Blackmon as he was introduced at the All-Star Game in Miami went viral]]> 4966016 Sat, 22 Jul 2017 14:35:01 EDT Big League Stew

Spin: It’s hard to go wrong when one hits leadoff for a lineup that scores 18 runs, as Blackmon’s 82 runs scored now lead the Major Leagues. After hitting just four homers across a 30-game stretch from May 27-June 28, the 31-year-old has now crushed seven long balls in his last 16 games. He also happens to be on a 14-game hitting streak now, as his top-10 bat continues to produce in kind for fantasy owners.]]> 4964285 Wed, 19 Jul 2017 19:42:18 EDT

He is stepping out of the batter's box and staring straight up into the night sky. It is 2010, and Blackmon is with the Double-A Tulsa Drillers. What is it? Is there a UFO swooping in? A Baseball God to beseech for more hits? What in the world is up there in the Oklahoma heavens?

"I was having trouble adjusting my eyes at night in the lights," says the Colorado All-Star, who sees and hits the ball as well as anybody in today's game.

He felt like they were exceptionally bright, producing more glare than light. The result, in his mind, produced a "sun-glare-like" effect that would cause his vision to blur]]> 4962315 Mon, 17 Jul 2017 9:28:02 EDT Bleacher Report
