The playoffs opened September 30 with the Wild Card Game in the American League where the Kansas City Royals showed up as the surprise guest and host. Over and over again came the reminders that the Royals had not been in post-season play since 1985 when they won the World Series.
Don't look now, but the third-place Mariners might be the best bet to represent the AL in the World Series this year. Lame duck commissioner Bud Selig's parting gift to baseball, the second wild-card spot, might hold the path to Seattle's first appearance in the Fall Classic.
Season three for the Angel phenom began slowly! After two incredible seasons in which the Angels center fielder was the runner-up for Most Valuable P...
This one presented a unique opportunity for all of us to contribute, without ever having to spend a nickel: We can help protect people with Down syndrome from being bullied.
Today I went to the stadium to chat with some of my friends in the Los Angeles Angels, like the four-time Latino MVP winner Albert Pujols, and the New...
Okay, I know you might be a diehard Yankees fan (or so you say), but if Albert Pujols whacks his 501st home run and it lands in your lap, are you dumb...
Well, the New Jersey native just signed a deal through 2020 worth $144.5 million. And I believe that this could be the greatest financial mistake of his life.
No matter who wins this year's MVP, the view from the Trout Farm was fantastic. And... we got a Mike Trout T-shirt! Those of us that had the pleasure of watching Mike's phenomenal season from section 101 in 2013 are already anticipating the enjoyment of watching him play in 2014.
With Major League Baseball's All-Stars now officially announced in the form of an awkward studio TV show, it seems like a perfectly good time to ruin the buzz of this year's All Star Game and instead, focus on the negatives.
How can anyone who had a near MVP season like Mike Trout continue to perform at a level that ignites a team, energizes the fans, and awes the league? Well baseball fans, he's doing it again!
That's what people picked it up for. There were many things in Coagula. People picked it up for the dirt. We got a level of notoriety. We were mentioned in the John Waters film, Pecker. There's a whole scene where he goes, "Be careful of that guy over there. He's from Coagula. It's a magazine."
Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout and the Washington Nationals Bryce Harper are poised to take over Major League Baseball and vie for World Series and league MVPs year after year.
Everyone thinks of Yogi Berra as the quintessential baseball quote. He made you think, laugh and occasionally want to launch your head into a brick wall. But Casey Stengel, manager of 3,766 games in the Big Leagues never wasted any time getting to the point
I like that a team wins or loses together. No one person carries a team, no one person takes credit for their success. As they say, there's no "I" in "team." Baseball proves this point, every game, and that's really cool.
It would be difficult to award MVP to someone other than the Triple Crown winner, but given Trout's success and the way he ignited the team there is still one scenario in which he may be chosen over Cabrera.
There has not been a rookie super-nova this dazzling who has entered baseball since the days of New York Yankee outfielder Mickey Mantle. Let me repeat: Mickey Mantle.
