If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 23

Only three weeks are left in the season, and it looks like ten teams are still legitimately in it (four in the AL and six in the NL). Everyone knows the Yankees ad Rays are still battling it out for top honors (with the Rays 0.5 games behind and a game in had). The Sans […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 8-31-10

The Rays and Yankees are still tied with 31 games to go; the Red Sox are 7.0 games back. The Cardinals (and pretty much the Giants) have seemingly died. The Padres have too, but they still had a huge division lead built up to eat the blow. And assuming Manny doesn’t help the White Sox […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 8-16-10

The races are starting to open up. Minnesota is 3.0 games ahead of their competition, and the Cardinals and Reds are a vast, vast 1.0 games apart. The NL Wildcard is now in a tie, while it’s still easily the Rays and Yankees in the American counterpart. San Diego did well against San Fran to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 18

Just eight weeks are left in the season, and only one division is led by more than 1.5 games: Texas is beating Oakland by 8.0. For all the talk, the BoSox neither gained nor lost ground over the Yanks, and are now in danger of falling behind the White Sox and Twins. The Cardinals/Reds saga […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 8-03-10

Just when you thought it was over, you get rebuked by teams that want back in. Minnesota is notably back in the race, and the Cardinals and Reds are still too close to call. Tampa and New York are tied, with the Rays getting the tiebreaker by virtue of leading the season series 6-5. Not […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 17

Just two months are left in the regular season, and the trade deadline (without waivers) has passed. Texas has a firm grasp on their division, but it looks like we may have to have a playoff game with the Cardinals and Reds. The Twins have come roaring back, the Phillies are trying to do so, […]

Red Sox Trade Ramon Ramirez to the Giants

The Red Sox have traded a Ramirez for the second time in the last three years at the trade deadline. This time, there’s not as many fireworks to go with it. According to WEEI’s Rob Bradford, the Red Sox have traded reliever Ramon Ramirez to the Giants, but it’s not known what the received in […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 16

The season has almost reached 100 games and the trade deadline, and still much is up in the air. Texas and Atlanta are the only teams with at least a 5.0-game division lead. Dan Haren will help the Angels try to say something about that, though. Minnesota is back within a game of their division, […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 7-20-10

With the next SoB power rankings here, it’s been fairly easy to pick teams. The White Sox have widened their division lead, the Cardinals have taken one again, and the Giants have quietly punched their ticket to the Wild Card race. The Rays are back in form, the Braves, Padres, and Rangers are all still […]

Jon Lester And Red Sox Win Heated Pitchers’ Skirmish

It was to be the biggest highlight for the Red Sox in quite some time: Jon Lester vs Tim Lincecum. It wasn’t meant to be. Fortunately, it wound up in Boston’s favor. The Franchise was chased from the game by Boston’s lineup after just three innings, leading to a 5-1 Boston victory. It didn’t take […]

Walking Wounded Sox Pull Out Win in San Francisco

It’s safe to say they needed this win. It’s been a tough interleague road trip out west for the Boston Red Sox, and they headed into Saturday’s game with the 2008 A.L. MVP Dustin Pedroia shelved for what seems to be indefinitely with a fractured left foot. Pedroia suffered the injury when he fouled a […]

Giants Walk Red Sox 10 Times, Then Walk the Walk in 5-4 Win

The Red Sox have run into a bit of trouble on the current road trip out west. They lost two of three to the Rockies, including an excruciating loss during Jonathan Papelbon’s blown save on Wednesday night. Looking for a fresh start in San Francisco, the Sox got off on the right foot on Friday […]

Night After Colorado Laser Show, Pedroia Fouls Ball Off Foot, Leaves Game

Dustin Pedroia put on the laser show on Thursday night against the Rockies, going 5-5 with three home runs to power the Red Sox to a 13-11 win in Colorado. His third HR came with a man on in the 10th inning after Jonathan Papelbon blew the save for the second straight night. The second […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 6

May is halfway over, and the unexpected beginnings are still going strong. The Padres are still on top, the Red Sox still suck, and the Reds are now ahead of St. Louis after taking two of three. Even the Nationals were in the Wildcard slot for about the amount of time it takes a frog […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 5-10-10
