MLB Week in Review (July 24-30)

The trade deadline is fast approaching and there has not been an avalanche of moves but there have been some major ones.

MLB Week in Review (July 3-9)

The All-Star Break is almost here and for plenty of teams that is a chance to take stock of where they are as the break marks the unofficial halfway point of the season.

2015 MLB Preview: NL East

The National League East is a strange division in the MLB as the competition is nowhere near the level of other divisions and yet they produce strong teams every year.

MLB Week in Review (May 24-30)

The MLB would celebrate an important milestone this week when they played the 8th annual Civil Rights Game. It is a game that is meant to highlight the history of African American players in the game. That history was not always the best for the MLB as they would not fully break the colour barrier until the 1950s. There is a long history of African American baseball and it is a very rich one with some amazing players that were never allowed to play in the MLB. As the world still believed that only one race was good enough to play there was a lot of amazing talent missed.

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.

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.

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 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.

2013 MLB Preview: NL East

The National League East is a division that is a good cross section of the MLB with teams doing it right and doing it wrong. The MLB is full of these teams that can show how to properly build a team and how to drive a team into the ground. In no division is there more of these teams than in the NL East were new powers are emerging and old powers are freefalling.

New looks and new hopes in the East (NL East Preview)

The National League East is a division of dominance as there has been a pattern of one team dominating the division over and over. It is not only one team that has dominated though as a number of teams have been able to assert their dominance over the years. As one of the oldest divisions in the MLB many teams have had their chance to be the dominating force in the division.
