The Sport Addiction 2014 Year in Sports

The Year in Sports was a difficult one to figure out as the accomplishments of so many were often overshadowed by terrible actions of the few. It was a year where the Olympics provided great stories day in and day out and yet many to a backseat to other stories. Heroes rose in 2014 but they were not the stories that took precedence in 2014. Instead it was the fall of heroes that took most of the headlines this past year. It is a common occurrence in the world of sports especially with the evolution of the sports world.

MLB Week in Review (October 25-29)

The MLB season as a new champion and yet it is a familiar ending to the season with the San Francisco Giants taking home the crown. It is the third time that the Giants have earned the World Series Championship in the last five years. That accounts for one of the best five-season stretches in the MLB and it brings about the debate of where the Giants stand. A dynasty is a team that has had success over multiple years in a small stretch.

MLB Week in Review (August 30-September 5)

It is that time again in the MLB as the season closes out and the time for many managers and general managers begins to wind down. As many teams prepare for one last run at the postseason or prepare for extra baseball in October more teams are looking to 2015. As the weeks move on more teams fall out of contention in for the postseason and with that they begin to prepare for the future. Teams call up some of the young prospects on their team to give them a chance at some MLB experience in case they need it for the next season.

MLB Week in Review (July 12-18)

The Midsummer Classic has come and gone once again as the MLB All-Star would provide the American League with home field advantage in the World Series. It was another display of the best of the best and was a typical game these days with the AL winning 5-3. More than just home field advantage and a display of the best players in baseball this all-star game would see a passing of the torch. Derek Jeter has been the man in the MLB for years as he is the one player that everyone can say has done it the right way.

MLB Week in Review (July 5-11)

The MLB season is reaching the halfway point of the season as the all-star break shuts down the league for a brief stint. As the halfway point of the season approaches the league is seeing a bad trend. With the All-Star game right around the corner teams are seeing some of their top players falling onto the DL at an alarming rate. The injury bug is running rampant in the league but it is not a new trend. There has been plenty of talk about the increase in the amount of Tommy John Surgeries in the MLB as arm injuries in pitchers seem to be increasing steadily over the last few years.

MLB Week in Review (May 10-16)

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.

2014 MLB Preview: AL East

The American League East has long been considered the best division in baseball as they have regularly seen teams at the top of the league. The division contains some of the most legendary teams in the MLB and every year they seem to be on top of the league. That can make it extremely difficult for teams to make a run at the top of the division. With the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox constantly winning the division the other teams find it hard to break through and win.

2014 MLB Preview: 5 Things to Watch

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 7-13)

The MLB postseason race is in full swing with many teams looking towards the playoffs and many more looking to next year. These teams are not the fun teams to watch though as the fun part of the race are the teams that are fighting for their spot. The teams that need to win or will find themselves out of the postseason are the teams that everyone is watching with only a few weeks left to earn their spot. There are only a handful of battles left in the MLB as the season winds down and the games get fewer and fewer with teams falling under the Out of the Running status.
