The Dodgers and Mets are no strangers to one another. Last fall’s National League Division Series between the two teams will forever be known as Daniel Murphy’s coming out party.

By Brad Spielberger, 1 year 1 month 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.

Outrageous National League Predictions for the 2016 MLB Season

By Jake Rose, 1 year 1 month 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.  ...

By Jake Rose, 1 year 5 months ago
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...

Royals Win First World Series Title Since 1985

By Jake Rose, 1 year 6 months 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,...

By Jake Rose, 1 year 6 months 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...
