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.

MLB Week in Review (June 21-27)

The MLB would see yet another no-hitter this week, marking three so far this year, as the MLB continues to see pitchers dominate the MLB. This week the star of the no-hitter would be Tim Lincecum who would put up his second career no-hitter. His latest would be another chapter in the strange career of Lincecum who shows signs of greatness but can never seem to break through.

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.

MLB Week in Review (March 31-April 4)

Another season is hear as the rumours and the analysis would go out the window as the players were simply allowed to play. A few surprising starts would highlight the first week of the season as teams considered the worst in the league would launch themselves to the top of their divisions.

All three of these teams were seen as three of the worst teams in the league but would start much better than many expected.

2014 MLB Preview: AL West

The American League West was much like its counterpart from the National League as there was a sense that it was falling behind the other divisions. When trying to earn a spot against the AL East it can be a difficult road as it essentially means that the division is the best bet to make the postseason. That can be said for every division but with only two Wild Card spots and the East consistently in the hunt for both other divisions make their division race much more important.

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.

2013 MLB Preview: AL West

The West is looking to rule this time around as there are a number of teams looking for their chance to represent the division in the postseason. The American League West is likely the only division that can even challenge the American League East for the title of the best division in baseball. They are making an even better case for it as the season approaches with teams making moves and winning games.
