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.

MLB Week in Review (October 19-25)

The 2013 World Series Began this week with the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox playing to a 1-1 tie in the series already. Every year the World Series pits two teams against each other and the stories of both of these teams make for great headlines.

The Season is officially half over as the Mid-Summer Classic gave teams and players a break from the long season.

Officials, Referees, or Umpires are all some of the most talked about people in sports.

MLB Week in Review (April 28-May 4)

Last week I wrote about Philip Humber and his entrance into the MLB record books pitching the 21st perfect game in MLB history. This week another pitcher put his name in the history books as Jered Weaver pitched the 274th no-hitter in MLB history.
