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. […]

Post-Deadline Contenders: Where Do the Red Sox Stand?

Every baseball season, the days leading up to the July 31st trading deadline offer teams the chance to evaluate their place in the league and decide whether or not to invest more or less into the active season. The Red Sox are no amateurs when it comes to making deadline deals, whether it be the […]

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 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 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 […]

Red Sox Rewind: Lester Unable to Reach 10 Wins; Crawford on DL

With Jon Lester on the mound, Red Sox fans expected another blowout on Saturday night. It turned out Randy Wolf got the best of the Sox hitters and the Brewers came away with the 4-2 victory. Lester surrendered back-to-back home runs to Rickie Weeks and Corey Hart to start off the first inning and Milwaukee never looked back. […]

Lackey Strong As Red Sox Beat Brewers; Crawford, Youkilis Injured

The John Lackey we saw before his DL stint, otherwise known as the worst starting pitcher in the major leagues, would not have recovered from his rough start to his outing on Friday night. This new, healthier version, though, got even stronger as the game went on. Lackey went 8.0 innings and allowed four runs […]

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 […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 9

After nine weeks, the Indians are finally slipping out of the AL lead; even their once impregnable AL Central lead is slipping fast. Ditto for the Marlins and the NL Wildcard. Yes, a lot has changed in the last week. That includes two new teams in the playoff picture for the NL from last week. […]

N.L. Central Fantasy Preview

The largest division in baseball is brimming with fantasy talent from top to bottom. This division contains the single most dominant player of the past decade, who you will be drafting first overall in any draft. Even though he may overshadow other players, the N.L. Central has a lot of early round talent worth spending […]

Zack Greinke Traded to Brewers

Zack Greinke has been traded to the Milwaukee Brewers, just one year removed from his Cy Young 2009 campaign. In that year, he was 16-8 with a 2.16 ERA, 1.073 WHIP, six complete games, three shutouts, 242 strikeouts, and 53 walks in 229.1 innings pitched. In 2010, he was 10-14 with a 4.17 ERA, 1.245 […]

The Roy Halladay Trade Sweepstakes

Quite possibly the most season-altering move a team could make would be trading for an ace before the deadline to fulfill a hole in the starting rotation. We saw the benefits of that for Milwaukee last year when they acquired C.C. Sabathia and rode his arm into the playoffs. Well, fortunately for us rumor mill […]

Dale Sveum Becomes Interim Manager for Brewers

Former Red Sox third base coach Dale Sveum became the Interim Manager for the Brewers after they fired Ned Yost with 12 games left in the regular season. He was the third base coach in Milwaukee before his promotion. The Brewers had just lost four straight to the Philadelphia Phillies, leading to a tie atop […]
