Posted on March 1, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Despite making three straight trips to the NLCS, the Chicago Cubs are hungry for a return to the World Series in 2018. Many people view the Cubs as one of the top contenders in the National League heading into the season. But can they live up to […]

Posted on February 10, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine One of the biggest dominoes in the stagnant free agent market has finally fallen.

Posted on December 22, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine After a slight delay, the baseball hot stove is finally starting to heat up.

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

He managed to cool down a Dodgers lineup that […]
