Posted on February 16, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine After winning the 2017 World Series, the Houston Astros have nowhere to go but down.

Posted on February 10, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine After an offseason of blockbuster trades that saw them trade away their best players, the Miami Marlins may not be done yet.

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.

Posted on November 29, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The fire sale the Chicago White Sox started last winter is far from over. There are still a few veterans on Chicago’s roster that GM Rick Hahn is likely to move this offseason. Next on the trade block appears to be Jose Abreu. Recent reports indicate that the […]

Posted on November 1, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine Well, it’s all come down to this. For the second year in a row and for the first time in the history of Dodger Stadium, there will be a Game 7 of the World Series. After the way this series has gone, and really, with the way […]

Posted on October 31, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The 2017 World Series has had more twists and turns than any Fall Classic in recent memory.
