Baseball’s Next Breakout Star?

The Padres are getting all the rave right now and for good reason. Manny Machado now plays in San Diego. Fernando Tatis, Jr. is lighting the world on fire. Chris Paddack is looking like a bona fide ace. No one, however, seems to be talking...

Daniel Murphy Sidelined in Colorado

Caution in Colorado Just six games into the 2019 season and already there will be tough sledding ahead in the NL West for the Colorado Rockies. No, it’s not just the Dodgers, who have come out with bats blazing through the first six games (17...

Why the Miami Marlins are World Series Contenders

You actually believed this one? Really?

30 in 30: Milwaukee Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers finished last season 96-67 while winning the National League Central Division. Their postseason went well, in some eyes, as they swept the Colorado Rockies in the National League Division Series. They lost to the National League Champion Los Angeles Dodgers in...

30 in 30: Chicago Cubs

The Cubs followed their disappointing Wild Card exit in 2018 with the most eventful uneventful offseason of all time. Despite the fact that their Opening Day Roster will likely have at least 23 guys from last year, the eyes of the media found their...

30 in 30: Los Angeles Dodgers

For the second year in a row, the Los Angeles Dodgers made a run to the World Series and were taken down by a 100-win team. After getting thoroughly beaten by the Red Sox in five games, LA lost star shortstop Manny Machado and...

30 in 30 Colorado Rockies

Can you hear it? As April inches closer it’s getting louder. Do you hear it yet? There it is again. Cascading through the Rocky Mountains. Blowing through California and down to Arizona. It’s a loud buzz for the Colorado Rockies in 2019. And for...

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,...

The Next Dodgers Ace

For the past ten years, the term “Dodgers ace” has meant none other than Clayton Kershaw. However, pioneered by an assortment of injuries and lack of velocity, Kershaw is no longer the pitcher he once was. This leads to the question: “Who is the...

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: 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: 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...
