2014 MLB Preview: NL East

The National League East is a strange division that includes some of the best teams in the MLB along with some of the worst. There are strong teams that have fallen off in recent years and teams that have rarely even been in the hunt. Meanwhile there are teams that look as if they will be the World Series Champions year after year. A lot of teams have found their way to the top of the division over the years but there is one that stands out amongst the rest.

2013 MLB Year in Review

The Boston Red Sox are standing at the top of the MLB world once again as they would win their 8th World Series in franchise history. The Red Sox would complete a worst to first season after it seemed that they were on the decline as a franchise. The year before the Red Sox had fallen to the bottom of the East division after revelations of the actions in the locker room known as the Beer and Chickengate by some.

MLB Week in Review (August 3-9)

The MLB Week in Review has been full of Biogenesis information in the last few weeks and the last thing I wanted to keep harping on was the scandal. There really is no bigger story than the scandal though and this week it reached what might be its peak. There is no real need to explain what the scandal is all about as it has been harped on multiple times. Essentially an “Anti-Aging” clinic lead by Tony Bosch named Biogenesis would supply steroids to multiple athletes.

MLB Week in Review (July 6-12)

A few weeks ago The Sport Addiction would post a MLB Week in Review about Biogenesis and the hunt for cheaters that the MLB was undertaking. The MLB was looking at Biogenesis, an anti-aging clinic in Florida that had reportedly sold steroids to a number of players in the MLB. Major League Baseball would spend the majority of the offseason downplaying the comments of Anthony Bosch, the former owner of Biogenesis.

MLB Week in Review (May 11-17)

The MLB has a trend brewing and it is the continuation of a new era in baseball that has been mention in this blog many times. The steroid era is finished and instead comes the dead ball era 2.0 as the pitchers are taking over once again. It doesn’t mean that offence is completely disappearing but pitchers are now emerging as the stars over the batters.

MLB Week in Review (April 20-26)

The sports world has seen a change in the players that step on the field or the ice or the diamond. The old way of doing things was always about bringing in experienced or older players because that is the way you won games. It was all about getting players who have been there before and who have experienced everything to experience in the sport. Young players were not as valued as they needed a lot more time to develop and become a good player in the pros.

MLB Week in Review (April 13-19)

The beginning of the week in the MLB was supposed to be a celebration of one of the greatest and most influential baseball players in MLB history. April 15th would mark Jackie Robinson Day in the MLB where every team and every player would wear the now league-wide retired #42. It was supposed to be a day of celebration for the man who broke the colour barrier in the American past time.
