The three best teams in the National League all reside in the NL West at the moment. Colorado Rockies just wrapped up a three-game set with one of them, losing the last two of a three-game set to the Diamondbacks.
Now they are following it up with a weekend series against the hottest team in the Major Leagues, the first place Los Angeles Dodgers.
Colorado has held that mantle at various points in the past few weeks and have…
It’s been a challenging schedule for the Los Angeles Angels of late. Since June 9th they’ve had series with Houston, two with the Yankees and one with the red-hot Royals. Heading into Thursday’s games they’ve fared pretty well, going 6-6 with three of the losses coming to Kansas City.
It’s helped them keep up with Seattle and Texas for second place in the AL West and within striking distance of that second Wild Card spot.
That’s probably the best they could ask for with their…
It’s been a rough month for the Detroit Tigers. Not too long ago they were pushing Minnesota and Cleveland for first in the tightly bunched AL Central. Now they’re fighting to stay out of the cellar, just a half game up on the White Sox heading into Wednesday’s games.
They are just 3-9 after hitting the .500 mark on June 7th. That includes series losses to the Red Sox and Diamondbacks. And more recently four losses in a row to Tampa Bay and Seattle.
They’ve scored just nine runs through the…

Detroit could certainly use a boost as they travel to Seattle to begin a four-game set with the Mariners. This was a .500 team 11 days ago, but have since gone 3-7 and have fallen to fourth place in the AL Central.
Part of the problem is the quality of their opponents as they dropped two of three to Boston, two straight to Arizona and they split a four-game weekend series against Tampa Bay. Each of those teams is…
The ESPN game of the week has the Boston Red Sox taking on the Houston Astros. It’s a juicy matchup that has a heating up Boston team taking on a cooling off Astros.

MLB Picks And Parlays: Suddenly Hot Kansas City and Los Angeles Meet Up on the West Coast
After an atrocious start to their season, Kansas City Royals seems to be on the right track to respectability and perhaps even getting into contention for that second wildcard spot. They are 20-14 heading into their series with the Los Angeles Angels, after starting the year 10-20.
They also hosted red-hot Houston earlier this month and split a four-game set. Then they’ve followed that up by taking…
MLB Picks And Parlays: The Mets travel to Washington to Begin a Four-Game Series
New York is a tough team to read. They have been hit by a ton of injuries to both the pitching staff and the offense and have managed to produce relatively well when not expected.
And then just when you they are about to go on a run, their lack of depth catches up to them. But more recently they’ve had some players return to health, including offensive leader Yoenis Cespedes and they’ve won six of eight.
The New York Yankees are once again the toast of baseball, heading into Tuesday’s games with the second-best record in the Majors and an offense that just won’t quit.
They are getting surprise contributions up and down the lineup, led by 25-year old rookie Aaron Judge who leads the team in batting averaging, home runs and RBIs (.347-22-49). But there are
