Monday Morning Quarterback is a term used by many, so this is not an original title, but I am going to use it anyway for the title of my weekly sports happenings blog of the past week in sports.
Major League Baseball has entered it’s “Unofficial” half way point of the season with its All-Star Break. This year’s All Star Game will take place at Citi Field in New York City, home of the New York Mets. The winning team’s league will get home filed advantage during the World Series in October.
If the season ended today, here would be the playoff teams from each League:
AL East Champ Boston
AL Central Champ Detroit
AL West Champ Oakland
AL Wild Card Tampa Bay and Texas
NL East Champ Atlanta
NL Central Champ St. Louis
NL West Champ Arizona
NL Wild Card Pittsburgh and Cincinnati
Of course, anything can happen in the final two and half months of the season. Atlanta has the largest lead of any of the Division leaders with a 6 game lead over Washington. Many other teams out there have the chance to get to the post season. It should be great to watch as the regular season nears its end!!
Back on March 30th, I had my MLB Preview of the Steve Black Show with Matt Mahony, Scott Cummings and Donney Jackson. Check out the broadcast and see how their playoff picks are stacking up so far.
Good Monday to you all!!!
