MLB Week in Review (June 15-21)

The Midseason point of the season is fast approaching as players and managers prepare to go to New York for the All-Star game or take a break in the middle of the season. It is a point where the teams and players around the league can truly take stock of where they are. The MLB season is 162 games long and is clearly the longest season in professional sports.

MLB Week in Review (June 8-14)

The MLB is a league that likes to see things as clean as they can be and that includes standings and wins and losses. They do not like having ties and so there are extra innings in baseball and this past week extra innings climbed to new heights. There have always been plenty of extra inning games but this week it was different with games going double the distance and longer.

MLB Week in Review (June 1-7)

The MLB was happy to move on to a new era after the 1990s and early 2000s as they had just gone through one of the toughest parts of their history. The steroid era was unprecedented in the MLB as no league had dealt with the issue on a scale like baseball. It was a time were steroids became the major conversation throughout the sports world and the MLB was the centre of the controversy.

MLB Week in Review (May 25-31)

Almost a year to the day The Sport Addiction would post a MLB Week in Review about a seemingly constant problem in baseball. In fact it seems to be a constant factor in more than just the MLB with as every major league seems to be going through the same thing. Officials, Referees, or Umpires are all some of the most talked about people in sports.

MLB Week in Review (May 18-24)

Almost two months into the season and teams are beginning to straighten out where they stand in the league. The fast starters are beginning to show their true colours as some are slowing down while others continue on. The slow starters are beginning to do the same as some are starting to get better and others are just proving that they will remain at the bottom of the league for the rest of the season.

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 (May 4-10)

In sports there are always injuries and in baseball there may be more than usual as players have to go through some of the most strenuous activities in sports. The position with the most injuries is likely the pitchers as throwing a baseball is not a natural motion of the human arm. The arm is not built to move that way as an underhand pitch is the more natural motion.

MLB Week in Review (April 27 – May 3)

The Boston Red Sox have been the best team in the MLB after the first month of the season as they have come alive. It was not expected this year as the Red Sox were a complete disaster last year with the entire locker room falling apart. They would get a new manager in John Farrell and would lose some of the troublemakers but many people believed there was still a long road ahead.

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 6-12)

As the MLB season continues to move on through the first two weeks of the season the debates continue to rage on. It may only be a couple of weeks into the season but one such debate has been going since before the season began. This is the debate over running the catcher which is a long standing tradition and a hotly debated topic year after year.
