MLB Week in Review (August 9-15)

The MLB owners had a major decision to make this week when they decided who would succeed Bud Selig as the Commissioner of baseball. For more than two decades Bud Selig has ruled over the game of baseball. He has overseen the expansion of the postseason and the introduction of interleague play. His lasting legacy remains to be seen but most likely it will be one of success where the MLB went from a league with constant labour instability to relative calm and plenty of success. The league is still going through a major television boom to help them become a serious player in the major sports league sin North America.

The MLB will go through a major transition heading into next year as the long-time commissioner of baseball will step down from his post. A former owner of the Milwaukee Brewers Selig became the commissioner under some controversy. Fay Vincent became the commissioner in 1989 and oversaw a tumultuous times in the league. When he blamed the owners for stalled labour negotiations because of collusion the owners struck back forming a group that attempted to forcefully remove Vincent as the commissioner.

This MLB season will be the end of an era in baseball as two of the most important figures in the sport will end their careers at the conclusion of the season. Derek Jeter and Bud Selig have been the face of baseball for two decades and both will end their time in the league at the end of 2014. For Derek Jeter the end of the season will mean the end of being the face of the sport and the prototype of a baseball player. Jeter has long been considered the one player who has done things the right way through his entire career. He is the type of player that every team looks for to help lead the team to championships.

The summer is approaching, although in some places it is taking its sweet time, and with the warmer weather comes the new baseball season. The 2013 baseball season was full of great stories and a championship run for the ages. The Boston Red Sox would be seen as a team in transition and a team that was not going to get back to the World Series a year after a terrible season.

MLB Week in Review (September 21-27)

The Season is wrapping up with few teams still able to earn a postseason spot and the rest of the teas preparing for what comes next. In the National League there are no spots left as the postseason is set and most teams know where they stands. The Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers will enter the playoffs as division champions while the Cincinnati Reds are sent to the Wild Card game. The Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals continue to fight for the Central Division with the loser moving to the wild card game against the Reds.

MLB Week in Review (May 19-25)

I have said time and time again that the MLB is the most stubborn unchangeable leagues in North America. The MLB is not a fan of change as they have fought against changing many parts of the game in order to preserve their connection to history. One of the biggest issues in the MLB is the fact that they refuse to change the aspect of human error.
