Heading into August, a couple of baseball’s division races are close. In the AL West, the Houston Astros have surprisingly been caught by the Angels. The New York Mets and Washington Nationals are only two games apart and the NL West looks like it is coming down to the wire. Many of the other divisions seem like the leader will hold on to first place, and a couple trades that happened this week strengthen that thought. With the final weeks and months upon us, here are our MLB division predictions headed into the playoffs. AL East: New York Yankees The Yankees are...Read More
What To Watch For A Cy Young runner-up, Wainwright is one of the best pitchers in the league. This will be his third Opening Day start and his second since bouncing back from Tommy John surgery.

For starters, the last time Seattle lost at home was on Christmas Eve. That’s Christmas Eve 2011. A nearly two year unbeaten streak snapped by Arizona. And they did it with defense. The Seahawks forced four turnovers, so the Cardinals forced two. The Seahawks...Read More
For anyone who follows me on Twitter, you know when the ruling of “obstruction” was called as the last play of a World Series game, I was pretty fired up about it. As a diehard Sox fan, I still cannot understand how a fielder laid out to try and catch a ball, is pushed down and then has a baserunner trip over him, is called for obstruction. From what I hear, I’m wrong. So to take my emotions out of it, here’s a “clear” explanation of the obstruction rule and why it was ruled last night during the Redsox/Cardinals...Read More
This is probably the NFC’s toughest division, with two legitimate Super Bowl contenders at the top, and two teams that would win the NFC East on the bottom. Predicted Finish Seattle Seahawks (12-4) (1st seed; NFC Championship Game) San Francisco 49ers (11-5) (5th seed; NFC Divisional Round) Arizona Cardinals (8-8) St. Louis Rams (7-9) Hit the title/continue reading to read more. . .
