The leaves are beginning to turn, the cool weather is settling in, and the sound of a baseball hitting a leather glove is in the air. Baseball season is almost here!
I’ll be covering all things baseball this year at my new blog, [The Best News](http://thebestnews.com). You can expect to find insights, analysis, and predictions on every aspect of America’s favorite pastime: from the Major Leagues to the Minors and even college ball.
I’m looking forward to another exciting season and I hope you will join me by subscribing to my RSS feed or following me on Twitter. See you at the ballpark!
Baseball season is almost here and I can’t wait! I am a huge baseball fan and I’m excited to watch some of the new offseason acquisitions make an impact on their new teams. This blog will be a place for me to write about my thoughts on the game and give insight into what I think about different players, different plays, and other things going on in the sport.
As the start of the MLB regular season draws near, it is time to analyze what is sure to be an exciting 2018 campaign. Last year, we saw the Houston Astros win their first World Series in franchise history, and they will look to become the first team since the 2000-01 Yankees to win back-to-back championships.
There are a lot of teams that improved in the offseason and it will be interesting to see how those moves pan out. The New York Yankees added reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton to the middle of their lineup. The Boston Red Sox added one of the best pitchers on the planet in Chris Sale to an already stacked rotation.
The Cleveland Indians look like they have a great shot at winning it all with arguably the best pitching staff in baseball and adding Edwin Encarnacion’s bat to an already potent lineup. We also can’t forget about perennial contenders like the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Nationals who are always in the mix come playoff time.
The Houston Astros are loaded once again and although they suffered some big losses in their starting rotation, their offense is good enough to keep them in most ball games. They have a great chance at becoming just the second team since 2000 to repeat as World Series champions.
Well, the start of baseball season is almost here and I couldn’t be more excited. Opening Day is March 28th, and I’m sure many people will be looking forward to it just as much as I am.
The Padres are going to be an interesting team to watch this year. They’ve made some big moves in the off-season, and they’ll have a lot of new faces on the field. If you’re like me, spring training can’t end soon enough. As always, if you want to catch up on my most recent posts about the team, check out my blog at www.padresfan4lyf.wordpress.com!
With pitchers and catchers due to report to spring training in February, the 2013 Major League Baseball season is just around the corner. With the offseason full of surprises, including the blockbuster trade between the Toronto Blue Jays and Miami Marlins, baseball fans are already in a frenzy. Many teams made moves that will help them compete for a division title or Wild Card berth, while others struggled to make any significant improvements to their roster. The Yankees lost slugger Nick Swisher, but added Kevin Youkilis and Ichiro Suzuki. The Dodgers boosted their rotation with Josh Beckett and Aaron Harang. The Oakland Athletics brought in Brett Anderson and acquired Chris Young from Arizona.
The American League East is wide open as always, but with so many teams making moves this offseason, there could be some serious competition in both the American League and National League. The biggest surprise of the offseason was the blockbuster deal between the Marlins and Jays that sent Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio, and John Buck to Toronto for Yunel Escobar, Adeiny Hechavarria, Henderson Alvarez, Jake Marisnick, Jeff Mathis, Justin Nicolino and Anthony DeSclafani.
The Red Sox
Spring has finally sprung and baseball season is upon us! I’m looking forward to another great season of the national pastime. As usual, it will be a long 162 game campaign with ups and downs along the way.
The first few weeks of the season can be a bit tricky for bettors as teams are still finding their footing after spring training. If you follow my blog, you know that I like to wait until around mid-May before placing any bets on individual games. With that said, there are some early season trends that can help you find value in your bets. For example, home teams tend to perform better than expected in April because of early season rust from visiting clubs. That gives me an edge when placing my bets in late March and early April!
Baseball is by far the greatest game ever invented. I’ve been a Red Sox fan since the age of 3, and never stopped loving the game, even through the most frustrating times.
This blog is an attempt to bring some of my thoughts, opinions and analysis of baseball to the world wide web. I hope that you find it enjoyable and thought provoking and if nothing else, I hope that you will love baseball as much as I do.
