30 in 30: Tampa Bay Rays

The Tampa Bay Rays went 90-72 last season, which would usually grant a postseason berth but they sat at home in October. With the youth outplaying their expectations and Blake Snell taking a huge leap in his career, the Rays definitely overperformed. Their bad...

30 in 30: Oakland Athletics

Was 2018 a turning point for the Oakland Athletics (A’s)? After suffering through three straight seasons (2015-2017) with fifth place finishes in the American League West, the A’s found themselves near the top. Battling a team like the Astros that is loaded with stars...

30 in 30: Atlanta Braves

  The Atlanta Braves ended their season with a 90-72 record and a division title. Their reward, an early exit handed to them by the Los Angeles Dodgers, who were on their way to their second constructive National League title. The youth on their team,...

30 in 30: Seattle Mariners

For the past 6 or 7 years, the Seattle Mariners have been in one of the worst positions a professional sports team could be in. They weren’t good enough to make the playoffs, but they weren’t bad enough to justify tearing it down and...

30 in 30: St. Louis Cardinals

Over the last 15 years or so the St Louis Cardinals have been a competitive team year in and year out and that was no different in 2018. Yes, they did part ways with manager Mike Matheny when the team was sitting one game...

30 in 30: Pittsburgh Pirates

The last two-plus decades for the Pittsburgh Pirates can be summed up in one word, mediocrity. In fact, the Pirates’ 2018 record of 82-79 was only the franchise’s fourth winning record in 26 years. This mediocrity has left general manager Neal Huntington and manager...

30 in 30: Washington Nationals

So, you lost Bryce Harper to a division rival in the Philadelphia Phillies. Now what? Well, you're in luck because with your addition of Patrick Corbin, you have one of, if not the, scariest pitching rotations in the league. Bryce Harper leaving your lineup...

30 in 30: Arizona Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks went 82-80 last season, which is generally good, but it was a step down from their 2017 season. In 2017, they went 93-69 and made the postseason, however they were swept in the NLDS by the NL Champion Los Angeles Dodgers....

30 in 30: Los Angeles Angels

Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout may be the most “must-watch” duo in the MLB today. Sure, Mookie Betts and JD Martinez are great together, even Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge, but neither of those duos has what the Los Angeles Angels have in Trout...

30 in 30: Philadelphia Phillies

John Middleton promised "stupid money," and boy did he deliver. The new-look Phillies are nothing like the Phillies of the past few years. Quite frankly, this team has talent. And a lot of it. It's almost unfair that the Phillies got Bryce Harper for so...

30 in 30: Minnesota Twins

The Minnesota Twins had a disappointing season in 2018 in comparison to their 2017 wildcard appearance. While they finished second in the AL Central, they still finished below .500 at 78-84. The good news is that if the youth holds up, Byron Buxton and...

30 in 30: New York Mets

For what feels like the 20th consecutive year, the Mets can either be very, very good, or very, very bad. I mean, it’s almost an annual mystery trying to figure out what to expect from them. Newly hired general manager Brodie Van Wagenen has self-proclaimed...

30 in 30: Toronto Blue Jays

The Toronto Blue Jays 2018 season was not great but compared to some other teams it wasn’t terrible. They finished 4th in the AL East with a 73-89 record. They are just two years removed from a trip to the ALCS. But the team...

30 in 30: San Francisco Giants

After acquiring Evan Longoria and bringing back what they believed could be a top rotation in baseball, the San Francisco Giants were looking to be competitive in the NL West in 2018. Long story short, they failed. They finished 73-89 and 4th in their...

30 in 30: Texas Rangers

The 2018 Texas Rangers didn’t really have a great season. They finished 5th in the AL West with a record of 67-95. Two consecutive losing seasons for the Rangers and they go back into a small rebuild phase. The team has a core of...
