Speaking of power, the Guardians don’t have a lot of it. They are not going to mash their way to a title. But that may be an advantage in an age of teams playing for the long ball. The Guardians seem more like the Mets this year – a deep lineup that grinds out at-bats, puts the ball in play, strings hits together and keeps the pressure on the other team. By running up pitch counts and putting pressure on opposing defenses, the Guardians play a professional style of baseball that is reminiscent of the San Francisco Giants teams of the early 2010s.
