If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 7

Another week gone, and the Rays have finally faltered out of the division lead. For a brief moment, the Red Sox actually led the division, but then they collapsed against the Cubs. Cleveland’s still in firm command of the AL, while Philadelphia maintains a delicate lead in the NL. The Giants have built a comfortable […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 5

Almost 20% of the season is done already, and the Red Sox still have never been to .500. The Pirates have for the first time since Blackbeard roamed the waters, so it’s embarrassing. Yet somehow, they’re only 4.0 games out of both the division and the Wildcard race. Cleveland is still somehow good, and is […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 4

It’s been four weeks, and Boston is still in the division’s cellar, and who would’ve thought the Twins would be MLB’s worst team? After that start, the Rays are back in the conversation for the Wildcard team. The Rangers are starting to slip from their powerful start, and Brandon League has the Mariners just 3.5 […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 3

After another week, the standings show little to no signs of stabilizing. Philadelphia is back on top, Detroit and Tampa are making challenges, and here come the Red Sox, among others. Taking down the Reds helped Pujols and the Cardinals take over the division, but Corey Hart is about to return, and the Brewers are […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 15

Approaching the 100-game mark of the season, it seems that nothing is set in stone. The Rangers continue to be impressive out West, and the Cardinals have usurped the Reds, again. After touching the playoff picture, the Red Sox have rapidly fallen back. The Yankees are still the team to beat, despite Andy Pettitte’s imminent […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 7-6-10

Welcome back for another edition of the SoB Power Rankings for Major League Baseball. This edition is jam packed with thirteen teams getting nods for the ten spots, yet only one dropping from the rankings. And eight teams have either kept their previous spot or moved just one. The Twins’ recent slide out of the […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 6-21-10

The Rays aren’t doing so well lately, and it’s cost them. They’re now tied with the Red Sox, and dropping in our rankings. After Mark Teixeira’s grand slam, the Yankees are back on top alone. Now, they’ll visit Arizona, for three easy wins. The 2001 World Series probably still has the Yankees hating. The Rangers […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 11

Another week gone, and another tumultuous time for the standings. The Mets are back in the running, for now, and the AL Wildcard race is in a virtual tie, just 1.0 games behind the Yankees. The Rays finally dropped out of the lead, having spent more time leading the division since April than in the […]

SoB MLB Power Rankings 6-7-10

With another two weeks gone, the Rays are still the undisputed kings of the league, and don’t look to be on the verge of screwing that up anytime soon. Ditto for the undisputed princes of the league, the Yankees. The NL isn’t as clear cut, with everyone going nuts on each other; the East is […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 9

The race for the postseason is really anyone’s game, in the National League, at least. Nine teams of the 16 are in the brackets or 3.5 games out at most. In the American League, the West is a three-way race (everyone but the Mariners are 1.0 games apart), but other than that, it’s pretty safe […]
