Not who you predicted


Just wondering how many of you thought that by this point in the season the Orioles, Nationals, and Dodgers would be leading their divisions? One of the stupidest things we do is try to predict baseball. We all know you cant do it but we still try over and over again. Also who would have thought that Albert Pujols the best first-base man in over 60 years would be hitting 197 with 1 HR? You just don’t know with baseball, for instance last year just about every expert (including myself) predicted a Red-Sox vs. Phillies World Series, And Boston didn’t even make it to the play-off’s. Even though the Orioles are slowing down a little Washington and L.A keep heating up. The Nationals have had by far the best pitching this season led by Stephen Strasburg and Jordan Zimmerman they have held a 2.33 ERA. Who knows maybe the Royals will win their division with baseball you never know.

Pineda goes in for MRI


Yankees starting pitcher Michael Pineda under went an MRI on Saturday. Pineda left Fridays game vs the Phillies with a sore right shoulder. Pineda thinks nothing of it but the Yankees just wanted to be sure. It is nothing serious and Pineda should be back on the mound in no time.

Tigers, Fielder.


The Detroit Tigers made a shocking move on Tuesday signing free agent slugger Prince Fielder for reportedly 9 years and 214 million dollars. Once again the mystery team comes out with the prize. Soon it will most likely be proven that mystery teams tend to win. Here’s some proof right now– take Cliff Lee for example. He hit the free agent market before the 2011 season; every one said it would be the Rangers or Yankees that would get Lee. Then out of nowhere come the Phillies and just like that they have him for 5 years.   Albert Pujols is another example. He was sure to go back to the Cardinals. I read the article saying that the Marlins took back their bid, but there was still a mystery team in the bidding. I went back to the home page and saw that Albert’s on the Angles for 10 years and the second largest contract in history! It just goes to show all GM’s not to reveal  their off season plans if they want to improve their team .
