If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 9

Nine weeks are gone in the season and June is upon us. Detroit is struggling while Boston is moving back up. The Dodgers are looking to recover their old form. The Astros are only the fourth worst team in the league. The divisions are starting to open up, with division leads being between 3.0 and […]

Video: Josh Beckett Throws No-Hitter for Dodgers

On a day when the Red Sox lost their 10th game in a row, former Sox “ace” Josh Beckett threw a no-hitter for the Los Angeles Dodgers. In a 6-0 win over the Phillies, Beckett walked three and struck out six, throwing 128 pitches in all. It was Beckett’s first career no-hitter and the first […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 3

After three weeks of the season, Milwaukee and Oakland are still ruling the roost, while the AL East and Central divisions both have 2.5 games between top and bottom. Other than the League leaders, no clear contenders have emerged yet. Though the teams people though would do well are starting to sift their way up […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 2

Two weeks are gone in the MLB season. Plenty of teams that were taken with a grain of salt or even discounted before the season are pulling ahead in the early going. Other predicted contenders aren’t doing so well. Then again, it is early, and that can happen before teams settle into a groove. But […]

Matt Kemp to the Red Sox? Not the Right Guy, Not the Right Time

Opinions about Matt Kemp abound as Winter Meetings continue in Orlando, Fla. Some sources state that the centerfielder would not be a good addition to the Red Sox. Instead, Jackie Bradley, Jr should be heir to the crown of the outfield. Others feel Kemp’s major league experience would bring some consistency and depth with Jacoby […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 25

Just one week remains until the playoffs begin. Four divisions and five slots overall are locked up. The Wildcard race in the East is still heated at this late stage, so pay close attention to the melees in the upcoming weeks. It’ll be fun to watch who ends up with which seed, so let’s look […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 24

The playoffs are stating to come into picture, but the AL is still full of action in the season’s final two weeks. The Indians, Orioles, Yankees and Royals are all well within striking distance of the Rays and Rangers for a Wildcard spot. While five divisions are all but wrapped up, the Cardinals and Pirates […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 23

September is well underway, and the divisions are starting to wrap up. We’re really starting to get a good idea of who the final 10 teams will be, though a few teams on the outside in the AL still have some pretty legitimate hopes of a Wildcard berth. Even if a postseason birth is probable, […]

Which Starting Pitcher Should Be the Red Sox Ace Come October?

The Boston Red Sox lead the American League East by one-and-a-half measly games over the Tampa Bay Rays. If I learned anything from 2011, it’s never to assume the Red Sox will make the playoffs. (Thankfully my glasses are protecting me from my natural instinct of clawing my eyes out at the mere mention of […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 21

We’re rapidly getting down to the last month of the season, but nothing has slowed down yet. The AL is still tough as ever, though Oakland is starting to fall off just a bit. Pittsburgh’s troubles are finally catching up with them, which has served to make the NL Central race and NL overall a […]

2012 Blockbuster Trade a Big Win for Red Sox and Dodgers

When the Boston Red Sox visit the Los Angeles Dodgers this weekend, the anniversary of the blockbuster trade the teams agreed upon last summer will remind us of how far both sides have come in rebuilding greatness. The trade seemed incredibly one-sided on the surface, as the Dodgers received three significant big league players capable […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 20

20 weeks into the season, plenty of races are still in play. By the same token, many other teams are running out of time. The AL playoff teams are logjammed at the top. The NL is a little more open, but the Reds are starting to make things interesting again in the NL Central. A […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 19

The Waiver-Wire deals are well underway, and there are plenty of contending teams still looking to tweak their rosters in the event they finds themselves in a late-September race. Neither league is safe at the top, and with the #1 seed meaning a whole lot with a one-game Wildcard playoff, we’re sure to see a […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 18

August is here, and there’s still plenty going on. Most importantly, the Biogenesis suspensions have been dished out. A-Rod is appealing, though the Yankees aren’t in the best position anyway with other teams vastly improving their records. Plenty of teams are still in the race, and the trade deadline helped out plenty of them. Especially […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – Week 17

The trade deadline is almost upon us, and teams are looking to add some last-minute pieces. Plenty of players are available, and there are lots of close races. With the home stretch coming up, there are plenty of opportunities left. Especially with both top seeds still very much in play, let’s look at what would […]
