Posted on March 21, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Washington Nationals have enjoyed sustained success at the top of the NL East, winning the division title in four of the last six years. However, the Nats have no playoff series wins to show for it. With several key players, most notably Bryce Harper, set for […]

Posted on March 20, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine A little more than a week before opening day, the Los Angeles Dodgers have lost one of their most important players. Third baseman Justin Turner will begin the season on the DL after breaking his wrist. Turner suffered the injury after being hit by a pitch from […]

Posted on March 19, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Despite winning the AL East with a 93-69 record the past two seasons, the Boston Red Sox haven’t won a postseason series since claiming the 2013 World Series. The natives in Bean Town are starting to get restless, even as the competition in the American League gets […]

Posted on March 18, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Cincinnati Reds have endured three straight last-place finishes in the NL Central while going through a rebuilding process. However, they did show some signs of life last season despite being ravaged by injuries. Can the Reds make 2018 their breakout year or do they have more […]

Posted on March 17, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Tampa Bay Rays were not far away from a playoff spot last season. However, they made several moves over the winter that weren’t necessarily aimed at being competitive in 2018. Was there a method to Tampa Bay’s madness this offseason or did they doom themselves to […]

Posted on March 16, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Despite going through a losing season in 2017, the Texas Rangers chose to reload not rebuild for 2018, albeit on a rather strict budget. Did the Rangers do enough this offseason to become a contending team this season or will it be another disappointing year in Arlington? […]

Posted on March 15, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Outside of the Miami Marlins, few teams did more during the offseason to hurt their chances of competing in 2018 than the Pittsburgh Pirates. The club traded away Andrew McCutchen and ace Gerrit Cole. Will those moves doom the Pirates to a lost 2018 season or can […]

Posted on March 14, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The San Diego Padres are in the midst of a long rebuilding process. However, the Padres made some moves over the winter aimed at competing sooner rather than later. Can they surprise people in a competitive NL West or will 2018 be another long year for the […]

Posted on March 13, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The St. Louis Cardinals have endured back-to-back seasons without making the playoffs for the first time since 2008. As a result, they’ve been quite busy this offseason, as they attempt to catch up to the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. But will those moves be enough […]

After being doomed by injuries in 2017, the New York Mets have essentially hit the reset button. Much of last year’s roster remains intact, most notably the team’s starting rotation, which has been stellar when they’ve managed to stay healthy, although that’s rarely been the case. Will the Mets have better luck in the injury […]

Posted on March 11, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine After an offseason plagued by inactivity, free agents are finally flying off the shelves. The latest is pitcher Jake Arrieta, who many considered one of the top two pitchers available this winter. Arrieta has agreed to a three-year deal worth $75 million. Arrieta is a major signing […]

Posted on March 10, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Slowly but surely, the top free agents left on the market are finding a home. The latest is starting pitcher Lance Lynn. Multiple reports have confirmed that the Minnesota Twins have agreed to sign Lynn to a one-year deal worth $12 million. Signing Lynn figures to be […]

Posted on March 9, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Few players were victimized by the historically slow free agent market than third baseman Mike Moustakas. But with three weeks left until opening day, Mike Moustakas has found a home. Well, he’s actually just returning to his old home. Moustakas has struck a deal to return to […]

Posted on March 8, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Miami Marlins made a lot of headlines during the winter, but for all the wrong reasons. Under new ownership, the club traded away most of its core in favor of cutting payroll and adding prospects for the future. As a result, the Marlins aren’t exactly set […]

Posted on March 7, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine While the Texas Rangers contemplate a 6-man starting rotation, much to the chagrin of ace Cole Hamels, the Tampa Bay Rays are moving in the other direction. Rays manager Kevin Cash has indicated the team would begin the season with a 4-man rotation. With his most recent […]
