If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 18

In the middle of August, it’s still very difficult to be on top. Both Wildcard races are very tight, both led by just half a game. Although most of the division are led rather comfortably, the seeding is still very much up for grabs. Just getting into the back end of the playoffs uses up […]

We’re now past Independence Day, and the All-Star votes are in as well.

Still, other teams are having a good time, most notably new division leader Pittsburgh. The White Sox are also doing […]

Another week down and the changes keep coming. Cleveland is making a resurgence. Boston is starting to put a run together. The Cardinals and White Sox are slipping. Plenty is still going on, and with the All Star break upcoming, teams are doing all they can to get ready. So with all that in mind, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 10

10 weeks into the season, and pitching continues to hold sway following yet another perfect game, this time from Matt Cain and the Giants. That has the Giants still doing well in the Wildcard race. But that hasn’t stopped things from mixing up elsewhere. The tightly contested AL East has undergone yet more changes, and […]

May is just about up, but the story lines haven’t let up. Matt Kemp should be back on the DL again. The Red Sox have injuries galore but are suddenly good. The Angels and White Sox have picked up their game, while the Orioles and Rays are faltering. Where does that leave everyone? Let’s look […]

Kevin Youkilis Trade Rumors: Where Will He End Up?

The 2012 Boston Red Sox look a lot like the 2011 version of the team, at least on paper. Two players entered this year as potential free agents: David Ortiz and Kevin Youkilis. Ortiz, enjoying a tremendous resurgence, may have already guaranteed himself another arbitration deal with the Red Sox, but Kevin Youkilis, over whom […]

If The Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 6

Interleague play is almost upon us, and that will mix up the races for sure. In fact, there’s a three-way tie for the top AL spot. The NL race isn’t too far away from that either. However, injuries are continuing to hit key names, which should shake things up even more. Where do things stand […]

A month into the season, and many teams are holding steady. But there’s still some changes going on.

The DL continues to hoard some big names, which always mixes things up, so let’s look […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 3

Three weeks into the season, and there’s starting to be some real separation in the NL divisions, but the AL is still largely close.

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 1

The MLB season is now underway, and already there have been plenty of surprises. In particular, the AL East has been turned upside down, again.
