MLB Week in Review (August 24-30)

September is almost here and that means the last month of the MLB season as teams race to the postseason. The last month of the season has been a thrilling one in the past as there are only few games left for someone to make a run at the postseason. In 2011 September would get one of its best races in recent memory. Going into the last month of the season the Boston Red Sox would look to be in complete control of the AL wild card.

What a Finish (2011 MLB Review)

MLB Baseball is the longest season in professional sports in terms of games as every team plays almost every day during the summer for a total of 162 games. This for many would mean that there is little to no chance of a tight finish as after 162 games there would be the haves and the have nots by the end of the season.

This was not changed in 2011 as the playoff race came down to the very last day of the regular season in both leagues.
