Posted on December 16, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine After falling one game short of a World Series title last season, the Los Angeles Dodgers have set their sites on cutting payroll this offseason.

Posted on December 15, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The San Diego Padres have been busier than usual during the early part of the offseason.

Posted on December 15, 2017, by Travis Pulver When the Los Angeles Chargers hosted the Kansas City Chiefs back in Week Three, it did not appear as if the rematch in Week 15 was going to matter. The Chiefs had the hottest running back in the NFL, a decent defense, and a born-again Alex Smith at […]

Posted on December 15, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Houston Astros managed to win the 2017 World Series despite a shaky bullpen.
