It' been a great year for baseball altogether .. Records falling all over ..




"It hasn't settled in," Spencer said. "I'm enjoying it." 

THE SHOT GAVE THE 26-YEAR-OLD rookie nine homers and 24 RBI
in his last 33 at-bats. He had a solo homer and scored another run in
Game 2 after hitting three grand slams among his 10 homers in 67
regular-season at-bats. 

"I hope they keep coming," he said.
Hey rookie ... so do us fans ..!!!
