If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 22

We’re now officially into the last month of the season. The only division still definitely in question is the AL East, with the AL West also having a decent amount of competition left. Things are starting to become more about gaining postseason momentum than clawing for a spot, though don’t tell that to some of […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 21

With about 30 games left, we’re really getting down to the wire. The Red Sox / Yankees rivalry continues to be the main focus of the divisional races, with Texas also looking to hold off a run by the Angels. Philadelphia is sputtering a little, but still has a very comfortable lead. Meanwhile, Milwaukee is […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 20

20 weeks into the season and there’s still plenty of drama. Boston and Arizona are faltering, Milwaukee is cruising and the White Sox are back in the race for the AL Central. While the Yankees and Giants are on their way up, St. Louis can still be pretty much counted out. Houston can officially be […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 19

Only a month and a half remain in the season, and the races are starting to thin out. The Phillies are pretty well-entrenched in their lead, and the other divisions usually have been whittled down to two contending teams, though the AL Central is a tad more crowded than that. Boston and the Yankees are […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 8

After another week, there’s plenty to discuss. The best record in MLB has switched hands again, and there are two new division leaders. Except for the Indians, no one is leading their division by more than 2.5 games. Six teams have gotten to 30 wins, and three of them are in the NL East, which […]

N.L. West Fantasy Preview

Within this division rests the World Series champions, Coors Field killers, ace pitching studs, and the Arizona Diamondbacks. The best team in the division isn’t even the one with the most highly regarded fantasy talent, which can only speak volumes for the division’s depth. San Francisco Giants The reigning world champions’ biggest strength is it’s […]

Diamondbacks-Red Sox Trade Rumors: Justin Upton for Bard, Ellsbury?

Rumors tend to run wild during the Baseball’s GM meetings, but one of the more hot topics that won’t seem to go away in 2010 is Justin Upton, the 23-year-old, five-tool Diamondbacks outfielder. New Arizona GM Kevin Towers has always been a creative general manager, and he recently said any player on his roster, including […]

Arizona Protestors at Fenway, Should MLB Take Notice?

When the Arizona Diamondbacks arrived at Fenway Park last Tuesday their baggage was waiting for them. No, the Red Sox haven’t started a valet service for opposing teams. Protesters, angered over a new Arizona law aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration, but seen by many as going too far, have been making noise around anything […]

Ortiz, Nava Lead Sox to Sweep of D-Backs

Thursday night in Boston, the Red Sox moved up their start time to 6:10 to accommodate people who wanted to watch the Celtics and Lakers in Game 7. It was supposed to be a glorious night for Boston sports fans. The Sox did their part, defeating the hapless Diamondbacks 8-5 and sweeping away an Arizona […]

Lester, Pedroia Carry Sox Over Arizona

The Red Sox have thrived on interleague competition and Wednesday’s match with the visiting Diamondbacks was no exception, with the Red Sox winning 6-2. Former Baltimore Oriole nemesis Rodrigo Lopez resurfaced to face the dominant Jon Lester, but couldn’t match Lester’s seven-inning, seven-strikeout, two-run night. Dustin Pedroia, who was mired in a deep slump until recently, […]

Ortiz, Buchholz Help Sox Top D-Backs

This may surprise you, but the Red Sox actually played a game on Tuesday night, as they hosted the Arizona Diamondbacks for the first of a three-game series at Fenway Park. Before you get bored…you may actually want to continue reading, as the result on Yawkey Way was not nearly as disappointing as the one […]

Sporting World And America Rebuff Arizona

By now, we’ve all heard about Arizona Senate Bill 1070, which aims to toughen up the state’s response to illegal immigration when it takes effect in August. At least that’s what right wingers are saying the point is. Plenty more people are saying that the law will actually promote racial profiling, since police are now […]

TGIF: Justin Upton in the First Round?

I am back from a dinner out with friends, and I decided to wander over to Yahoo! fantasy to see what is going on. To my surprise, Brandon Funston has released his fantasy baseball “Big Board” for the first time this year. I never really see eye-to-eye with Funston on his picks, especially since he […]

Three Off-Season MLB Moves That Affect the Red Sox

Plenty of action has already taken place during the off-season. The Red Sox have made their share of moves (John Lackey) and also made intentions known (Adrian Gonzalez). This could force other players out to get rid of the surplus (Clay Buccholz). But, it’s not just the Red Sox that have been moving and shaking. […]

The biggest news coming from today’s winter meetings is that the New York Yankees, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Detroit Tigers have agreed in principle to a blockbuster, three team trade. The Deal New York gets Curtis Granderson (OF) from Detroit. Arizona gets Edwin Jackson (P) and Ian Kennedy (P) from Detroit and New York. Detroit gets […]
