By Brad Spielberger, 2 months 3 weeks ago
On Opening Day today every team in MLB has the same record and the same chance to win it all. There are favorites and dark horses, but ultimately nothing will be decided for six months. Many experts and analysts will make their picks on which teams will win the divisions or the wild cards as well as the major awards at the end of the season. And you can count on one thing — many of their...

Outrageous National League Predictions for the 2016 MLB Season

By Jake Rose, 2 months 3 weeks ago
Baseball is a funny game. A game with no time restriction, built on nuance, and forever romanticized. One of the best quirks about baseball is that anything can happen over the course of nine innings.   Every season, pardon the quasi-Yogi-ism, but “anything does happen.” Every summer something happens in baseball that drops our jaws and totally catches us off guard.  ...

The pitching market has been on the front burner so far during the MLB Hot Stove season. David Price signed a seven-year, $217 million ($31 million AAV) deal to be the ace of the last-place Boston Red Sox, only to see his deal be one-upped by Zack Greinke’s six-year, $206 million ($34 million AAV) contract with the — surprise! — Arizona Diamondbacks. Former Nationals...

Major League Baseball’s hot stove is already at full boil. New Red Sox general manager Dave Dombrowski is already making his mark in Boston, swapping four prospects with the Padres for closer Craig Kimbrel. Meanwhile, Kimbrel’s former club, the Braves, continue to make their fans say, “They did what!?” by trading away Andrelton Simmons, the best...

Royals Win First World Series Title Since 1985

By Jake Rose, 7 months 4 weeks ago
The old saying goes, “Give an inch, they’ll take a mile.” The New York Mets gave the Kansas City Royals inch after inch over the course of the World Series and the Royals took home a championship. All series long the Royals took advantage of Mets’ miscues: poor defense, bad bullpen management, and shoddy base running. The Royals came into this 2015 Fall Classic,...

World Series Game 5 Preview & Prediction: Kansas City Royals vs. New York Mets

By Jake Rose, 8 months 15 hours ago
A healthy portion of the sporting world had probably never heard of Daniel Murphy before his improbable October run. He isn't a household name even in baseball circles. Murphy’s six straight Postseason games with a homerun and his absurd line of .529/.556/.1.294 and 1.850 OPS in the NLCS against the Cubs put him on the tip of every sports writer’s pen from New York to Los Angeles...

World Series Game 4 Recap: Royals Take Advantage of Mets' Mistakes

By Jake Rose, 8 months 19 hours ago
Just when it appeared that the New York Mets were going to make a run at the Kansas City Royals and tie the series at two games a piece, the game of baseball proved, once again, just how cruel it can be. Perhaps it was the spirit of Halloween night or just the Mets’ magic running out when it was needed most. The Mets made it to the World Series thanks in large part to Daniel Murphy...

World Series Game 4 Preview: Kansas City Royals vs. New York Mets

By Jake Rose, 8 months 1 day ago
David Wright is one heck of a ball player — always has been. It feels as if that has been forgotten over the course of the past five seasons. Wright has missed 268 games since the start of the 2011 season, including 124 games this season, thanks to a constant barrage of injuries. One DL stint after the other, it seems. Wright, 32, is the Mets’ captain and long-time third...

World Series Game 3 Recap: Mets' Bats Back Syndergaard in 9-3 Rout of Royals

By Jake Rose, 8 months 1 day ago
In order to save their season and this World Series from the brink of elimination, the New York Mets needed to jump on Kansas City Royals starter Yordano Ventura in the early innings and show some grit in the batter’s box. Mets’ starter Noah Syndergaard showed his own moxie with the very first pitch of the game, buzzing the tower of white-hot leadoff hitter Alcides Escobar,...

World Series Game 3 Preview: Kansas City Royals vs. New York Mets

By Jake Rose, 8 months 3 days ago
The old baseball adage is that, “Good pitching always beats good hitting.” Not so fast, say the Kansas City Royals.  Surely after this World Series ends, whether the Royals win or lose, newly hired general managers will be shifting the way they build their ball clubs to feature more contact-driven lineups. All season long the Mets' core of young power pitchers bullied...
