A Look At The Current MLB Standings
A simple blog offering the latest mlb standings.
For the American League, we see a tight race between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. The Tampa Bay Rays are not far behind, and it is going to be a great divisional race right down to the wire. For the National League, it seems pretty clear that the Philadelphia Phillies are going to repeat as NL Champions. They have been playing great baseball all year long. They have a lineup that can hit for power and hit for average. Their pitching has been very good as well, with Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, and Cole Hamels leading the way. If they can avoid injuries, they should be able to hold off some of the really good teams in this division like the Atlanta Braves and San Francisco Giants.
There’s no question that Major League Baseball is one of the most popular professional sports in the world, and this is reflected by the millions upon millions of fans it has. The fact that so many people are interested in baseball means that there are lots and lots of fans who want to keep up with their favorite teams and the latest news involving what’s happening with MLB.
Fortunately, there are a number of great ways to stay on top of everything going on in MLB. One of the best tools available for baseball fans is an mlb standings blog, which offers a wealth of information about what’s going on in the league.
Unlike some other sports, baseball doesn’t have a single clear “season” that can be used to determine when things are happening. Baseball instead has several seasons that occur throughout the year: pre-season, regular season, post-season and off-season. Each of these seasons has a different impact on how the sport is played and how teams perform on the field.
The best mlb standings blogs will offer information about each season as it happens, including detailed analysis of player performance, team performance and league trends. These blogs should also include information about player injuries and contracts, as well as updates from around the league about trades and other deals.
The MLB is really heating up. The Yankees are on a roll and the Red Sox are still trying to overcome two injuries to their starting pitching. The National League is even more interesting as the Brewers and Cardinals battle for the division lead in the NL Central, while the Nationals and Braves gone back and forth for division leading supremacy in the NL East.

Americans Are Taking More Vacations By The Numbers, And AAA Reports People Want To Go Big.
Travelers are eager to get out of the country and are willing to spend more on their trips, according to the latest data from AAA, which found that nearly half of all summer vacation bookings this year will be for international destinations.
The most popular international destinations for U.S. travelers this summer will continue to be Canada and Mexico, followed by Europe and the Caribbean. But with new air routes opening up, travelers will also be heading to South America and Asia in record numbers.
According to a survey by AAA Travel and IHS Markit, 48 percent of the summer travel bookings made through the company were for international trips, the highest volume in more than 15 years.
“The U.S. economy is strong, consumer confidence remains high and demand for travel continues to grow,” said Bill Sutherland, senior vice president of AAA Travel and Publishing. “What’s even more encouraging is that consumers are eager to get out of their comfort zone and try something new this year.”
More Americans are planning vacations abroad this summer, according to AAA Travel’s annual forecast.
