The NL East Breakdown

 

By Allyus Fritz

With one exception this division has given us exactly what we expected. We knew there would be two good teams and three bad teams. The thing that most of us didn’t expect is that the Nationals would be flirting with a .500 record and wouldn’t be in first place. Even with Washington’s slow start, there is still a good chance this division will produce two playoff teams.

Here’s the NL East Breakdown.

Contenders:

1. Atlanta Braves (45-33)

– Mike Minor and Kris Medlen are the leaders of an amazing Braves pitching staff. The pitchers will need to remain fantastic if they wish to stay in first place. How can a team of the Braves caliber have multiple players batting under .200? B.J. Upton is now hitting a miniscule .177, while Dan “Ugly” Uggla is down to .196. After an amazing start to the season, Justin Upton is batting .241 and is not driving in runs even close to the same way that he was at the beginning of the year. If these players become productive again, it will be hard for any team to defeat them in October.

2. Washington Nationals (38-38) 6 GB

– Injuries have crippled the Nationals. Ryan Zimmermann and Stephen Strasburg both spent time on the DL, and now wunderkind Bryce Harper is in AAA rehabbing his knee. I still believe the Nationals will make the playoffs because they are simply too talented not to. Most of them haven’t even started to have a quality season yet… and they’re still .500! Expect the Nationals to make a serious run at the division crown.

3. Philadelphia Phillies (37-41) 8 GB

– I’ll be nice and leave the Phils in the contender category for now. They still may have enough firepower to make it an interesting second half. Dominic Brown is a star on the rise, and if Ryan Howard could kick it in to high gear, these two could make quite the dynamic duo. If the Phils falter soon enough for them to look to deal their stars, Cliff Lee and Jimmy Rollins won’t be around long. Look for St. Louis to make a push for Rollins.

Looking for next year:

4. New York Mets (30-43) 12.5 GB

– At least the future is bright. Matt Harvey, Zach Wheeler and maybe even Dillon Gee are all future rotation stars. As for now? David Wright is tied or leading the team in every major offense category. John Buck, who had an incredible start to the season, is now ice cold, batting only .224. Only two players on the Mets are batting over .235.

5. Miami Marlins (26-50) 18 GB

– The future is not bright. In fact, the future looks like a spinning black hole of horrifying ineptitude. The Marlins have only one hope of being relevant over the next three seasons at the least, and his name is Giancarlo Stanton. Don’t be surprised if the Miami front office that doesn’t care about winning deals Stanton before the trade deadline. He would look good in Pittsburgh, would he not?

See you in the NL Central.

The AL Central Breakdown: Can Anyone Catch the Tigers?

 

By Allyus Fritz

The Detroit Tigers are leading the American League Central by 3 games. Not a wide margin by any means. Over the last few seasons Detroit has never been overly dominant when it comes to regular season record. Detroit always loses more than a few games, however never enough to lose out on a division crown. Last year they ended the season 88-74, yet still found a way to make it to the World Series.

Overpowering starting pitching combined with Miguel Cabrera (and bash brother Prince Fielder) will make Detroit a foreboding presence yet again come October. Other AL Central clubs will make the rest of this season interesting, but none of them can match the talent that resides in the motor city.

Cleveland and Kansas City are capable of making second half runs. Can the Royals finally live up to their talent and nab a wild card spot? Only time will tell.

Here’s the AL Central breakdown:

Contenders:

1. Detroit Tigers (42-32)

– Detroit is a team that’s built for the postseason. Starting pitching is the most important aspect of a baseball team come October, and the Tigers may have the best rotation in baseball. There’s Justin Verlander (duh), Max Scherzer is now 11-0, and Anibal Sanchez (on the 15-Day DL) has a 2.76 ERA. Doug Fister and Rick Porcello aren’t too shabby either. Five reliable starting pitchers is the envy of every other team in baseball (except St. Louis).

2. Cleveland Indians (38-36) 4 G.B.

– Are these guys for real or not? Terry Francona and the Indians’ front office went out a plucked talent from the free agent pool this off-season. The return for their efforts has been minimal. Michael Bourn has spent a good portion of his season on the DL, and Nick Swisher is batting .231. The tribe has the talent to make a push, so let’s see if they can muster one.

3. Kansas City Royals (35-38) 6.5 G.B.

– Will Kansas City ever fulfill their potential? A trendy preseason pick by baseball analysts everywhere, the Royals have been dismal at the plate thus far. The key to this club making a run at the postseason is if their bats finally come alive. Mike Moustakas is now batting .207, which sadly means he’s on a hot streak. Salvador Perez and Billy Butler need to start cranking home runs or else the Royals are done for. Can someone for the love of grilled cheese get James Shields some run support? Thanks.

Looking for next year:

4. Minnesota Twins (34-38) 7 G.B.

– The Twins are only a half game behind the Royals, but they also may have half the talent. This team will start having some bad luck just like the Royals are due for some good luck. Don’t be surprised if Justin Morneau and Josh Willingham are both dealt by the trade deadline.

5. Chicago White Sox (31-42) 10.5 G.B.

– This team simply doesn’t have enough pieces to compete, therefore let’s talk about two interesting things dealing with the Sox. Numero uno: Adam Dunn. Dunn only has 48 hits this season and is batting .193. However, 20 of those 48 hits have left the yard. He has struck out 89 times, which means he strikesout more than he hits. Dunn is literally an anomaly of the game. Do you think he closes his eyes when he swings? Dunn literally misses or it goes 450 feet. Numero dos: Chris Sale is facing off against the Mets’ Zach Wheeler on Tuesday, which will showcase two of baseball’s best young talents. If there was ever a game between two cellar dwellers worth watching, it’s this one.
