2012 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: World Series Results

The World Series is over, and San Francisco took their momentum from taking care of the Cardinals and carried it over into sweeping Detroit, who themselves swept the Yankees to get to the World Series. That means San Francisco won seven straight games to get their title, no easy achievement. Congratulations to the Giants in […]

2012 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: League Championship Series Results

The League Championship Series are over. And whereas the Tigers were highly anticlimactic in sweeping the Yankees, the Giants pulled out the drama yet again, winning three straight elimination games in their second series of the playoffs. Will all that extra work cause too much fatigue? Will Detroit’s extra rest create rust? That’s for later. […]

2012 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: Divisional Round Results

Baseball is down to its final four, and all four had to march through five-game divisional series to get there. That is sure to leave all teams exhausted with little time to rest up and prepare, which will make things pretty interesting. Trying to pick that thrilling divisional round was interesting as well, with no […]

2012 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: Divisional Round

The Divisional Round is underway, with a full slate of four best-of-five series to look forward to. And thanks to the elimination of the rule prohibiting teams from the same division from facing off in this round, we get to see the Yankees and Orioles slug it out. We also get to see how Washington […]

2012 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: Wildcard Round Results

The first ever Wildcard round is now in the books, and it started off with plenty of controversy. Despite committing three errors, the Braves were launching a comeback in the 8th, when a fly ball to shallow left was put under the infield fly rule despite a long ways to go for the shortstop and […]

2012 MLB Playoffs Expert Picks: Wildcard Round

The playoffs are upon us, starting with the first two Wildcard playoff games in MLB History. First up, the Braves host the defending champion Cardinals, followed by the upstart Orioles visiting AL powerhouse Texas. Both games are sure to be interesting, but with the Orioles’ great season and Texas’ struggles, it’s created a divide among […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 24

Just one week remains in the regular season, and there’s still plenty to play for. No AL team has even locked up a playoff spot so far, and only two of the NL divisions have been won. Both #1 seeds, essential for drawing a tired Wildcard team, are still very much up in the air. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 23

Two weeks remain in the season, and the final push is in full swing. Only one team has officially clinched a playoff spot so far, so there’s still plenty of room to make a move. Four divisions still have three teams officially alive. Teams are really on edge trying to keep or steal playoff spots, […]

The Small Market Myth of the 2012 MLB Season

As Major League Baseball’s 2012 Playoffs approach, a crop of new teams appear poised to contend in October. With perennial doormats such as the Baltimore Orioles, Oakland Athletics, and even Pittsburgh Pirates now in the heat of the competition, a trendy, new train of thought comes with them.

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 22

It’s just a few weeks left until the playoffs start, and the action isn’t any less exciting. The Orioles and Yankees are still neck and neck. The Athletics are making a push for the AL West. Even the Phillies are back in the picture. That’s not to mention the several other teams still in the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 21

There’s officially less than a month left in the season, but that doesn’t mean anyone’s coasting. In fact, two divisions are still led by at most one game, and only two teams have officially been eliminated from divisional contention (and only one from playoff contention). We have a fairly good idea of who will make […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 20

Now that August is over and done with, time is starting to run out on teams to make a run. The elimination numbers are large enough for now, but we’re getting a good idea of who might have a chance of making it in. Now that September is almost upon us, many teams are starting […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 19

August is nearly done, but plenty is still going on. The Wildcard races are very heated, the seeding is by no means determined and the Dodgers are looking to make a MASSIVE push. The AL is especially volatile, with a three-way tie for the second wildcard and a new #1. Just about anything can and […]

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 […]
