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 […]

Did the Red Sox Burn Out Their Clutch?

Anticlimactic Opener I understand that it’s only 7 games into the season, but something is already missing. Where’s the magic? After an ending like last year, how could this season for the Red Sox start off so slow? First off, the Sox lost their season opener to the Baltimore Orioles, but it was a well-pitched […]

Opening Day for World Champs at Fenway

After taking two of three from Baltimore to start the year, the Red Sox open up at Fenway park today at 2 pm against the Milwaukee Brewers. Jake Peavy (12-5, 4.17 ERA in 2013) will be making his first start of the year against Marco Estrada (7-4, 3.87 ERA in 2013). Before the game however, […]

Can New Red Sox Reliever Burke Badenhop Buck the Trend of NL Central Flops?

As an encore to their 2013 World Series title, the Boston Red Sox kicked off the 2014 offseason by acquiring…middle relief pitcher Burke Badenhop. Not exactly the most awe-inspiring move to start your title defense, now, is it? The Red Sox shipped out a no-name minor leaguer (left-hander Luis Ortega — apologies if any of his […]

Robin Yount Goes “Dick Cheney” on Former Red Sox Third Base Coach Dale Sveum

Apparently Robin Yount, the former outstanding shortstop and center fielder for the Milwaukee Brewers, still holds a grudge against Dale Sveum for working for the NL Central rival Chicago Cubs. According to ESPN, the Hall of Famer pulled a “Dick Cheney” and accidentally shot Chicago Cubs manager (and former Brewers manager) Dale Sveum while the […]

Despite Winning Appeal, Ryan Braun Still Guilty

Ryan Braun is still a cheater. Whatever independent arbitrator Shyam Das might say, nothing will change Braun’s urine testing positive for synthetic testosterone, and a lot of it at that. And until someone conclusively accounts for that, Braun will remain a steroid-user, his name forever smeared with the b.s. he’s spoon-fed the media since his […]

Ryan Braun Proven Innocent, Suspension Lifted

Ryan Braun can sleep much easier these days. The Brewers outfielder successfully won his appeal of the 50-game suspension he received for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. In December it was initially reported that the National League MVP had failed an October test due to high levels of testosterone. Immediately a negative outburst of reaction […]

Steroid Use Should Cost Ryan Braun MVP

When you get caught cheating, you’re supposed to be punished. Copy your friend’s homework? Zero on the assignment. Run a red light to save a couple minutes? Ticket. Carry on an elicit affair? Divorce, and probably half your stuff. Milwaukee Brewer Ryan Braun got caught cheating: he failed a drug test. While a 50-game suspension […]

Report: Dale Svuem Front-Runner to be Next Red Sox Manager

Former Red Sox third base coach Dale Svuem appears to be the favorite to replace Terry Francona as Red Sox manager, “rival executives” told FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. Svuem was the third-base coach in 2004 and 2005, and while he is held in high regard by Red Sox GM Ben Cherington, his skills as a third […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 24

We’re almost a week away from October, and that means it’s almost time for the playoffs to finally begin. Just the Phillies and Tigers have locked up spots so far (by way of a division title), but the largest elimination number remaining for a division is seven, and the Yankees shouldn’t have too much trouble […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 23

With less than 20 games and two-and-a-half weeks left in the season, it’s getting down to the wire if teams want to make a move. Tampa and St. Louis are doing their parts, but there’s still a ways to go. The Phillies and Yankees are still holding sway, while the White Sox and Indians are […]

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 […]
