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 18

With less than two months to go, some teams still have their space between themselves and rivals, while some teams have gotten close again. The Yankees lost their brief hold on the division, while the Angels and D-Backs are closing the gap quickly. Cleveland and Pittsburgh are continuing to fade from their early season success. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 17

The trade deadline has come and gone, and some contenders have made some big moves to up their chances of playoff glory. Ubaldo Jimenez and Hunter Pence, not to mention Michael Bourn (the Astros were really sellers, weren’t they?) are all in great positions to make a push. So is Erik Bedard, though he isn’t […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 16

As the season goes on, it’s tough for any team to gain a competitive edge. The NL Central even has a three-way tie going, with each team only percentage points apart. Sure, teams are starting to wedge a little bit of room between themselves and their competitors, but those leads haven’t been stable this season […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 15

Nearly 100 games have been played. The largest division lead is 4.0 games, and half of the six divisions are led by no more than 1.5 games. For a brief moment, the Pirates were actually leading the NL Central, which shows how surprising this season has been. Trade talks have been heating up in advance […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 14

Now that the All-Star break is here, it’s time for teams to sit back and reflect on the first half, rest up and take stock of where they are. That’s especially important in the American League, where no division is led by more than 1.0 games. Save for the NL Central, NL leads are a […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 13

It’s almost time for the All Star Game, and plenty of races are still tight. Boston has dropped some ground to the Yankees, and the Indians, Cardinals and Angels are all interjecting themselves back into their divisions in real dogfights. The Wildcard spots are locked up fairly securely considering how other races are going, and […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 12

With the Dodgers bankrupt and the All Star break almost upon us, the season is nearly half over, and there’s still plenty of teams in the hunt. Four divisions are led by at most 1.5 games. Philadelphia lost Roy Oswalt for awhile. The top three teams aside from Philly are all in one division. And […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 10

Only one new team has fought into the race in the last week, but a huge amount has still changed, including two new division leaders and a new AL leader (nearly MLB leader). Cleveland’s once mighty lead is now down to percentage points. The Yankees still can’t figure out Boston. St. Louis and Arizona are […]

N.L. East Fantasy Preview

This division is STACKED. Hell, the Phillies alone have enough starting pitchers to lead your team to glory, and no, that’s no exaggeration. Aside from that, there is an abundance of young hitters, some with 30+ HR potential. You know what? Just draft solely from the N.L. East and you actually might win your league. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 25

There’s just one week left in the season. One week. The Twins, Rangers, and Phillies have all punched their post-season tickets, and it’s all but a certainty that the Yankees, Rays, and Reds will be joining them. The Padres are just 1.0 game behind the Giants for the division, and half a game behind the […]
