Hopefully we'll have a full season with no teams under 500 making it to the postseason this year.

Will the Tigers be good this year? I'm optimistic that they might just be a .500 team. Good ole A.J. Hinch changed the whole clubhouse philosophy and demeanor.

Well, that Citrus Series (Marlins/Rays) earlier was certainly something.

There was a couple pretty evenly-matched pitching duels in the first two games before Miami's bullpen gave up the winning runs late (The second game was especially painful...needless to say, blown saves suck). The third game however was a slug fest where the Marlins stopped the sweep with an offensive outburst; loved watching Chisholm Jr. wreck havoc on the bases. For a team that's on the rise but not quite there just yet, I'd say the Fish handled themselves just fine against the AL champs.

In other news, the Cubs took their series against the Pirates earlier today so that was nice. I find it somewhat interesting that their schedule is nothing but Pirates and Brewers until the 16th, where they'll face the Braves (Hoo boy).

Akil Baddoo or Yermin Mercedes... Such interesting starts for two very different players

As someone impartial to both teams, that Dodgers/Padres game was crazy fun.

So we're past the halfway point... how's everyone's team performing? Well? As expected? Underperforming? Abysmal?

Since May 8, the Tigers are 35-27... living embodiment that while you can't win a division in April, you can most certainly lose it. That was well beyond my expectations, so this is awesome. Also stings

It's pretty stupid if you ask me... maybe it'll eventually catch on with me, but shortening it to Guards atleast rolls a bit better off the tongue

Lame. Should of just kept it the Indians.

This was already kind of out the the equation considering how Native Americans feel, especially with the imagery used, and how the organization finally decided to respect their wishes.

How big of an outrage it truly was, we'll never know. Not the environment in this day and age to test the waters of "controversy". There's nothing we can do about it now anyway, but man Guardians was the best thing they could come up with? Sheesh
