Major League Baseball in full swing

Jack Smith, Sports Reporter

The Major League Baseball (MLB) season has been nothing shy of stellar. The season is far from over though. The St. Louis Cardinals, who are leading the league with a record of 84 – 46, are looking at yet another very strong playoff run.

On September 3rd, Bryce Harper, of the Washington Nationals, had no at bats, no hits, four runs, one RBI, and four walks. This is the first time in modern history that anything like this has happened.

In Anaheim the L.A. Angels have a nine game home stand coming up in the next ten days. These games are against the Texas Rangers, Houston Astros, and LA. Dodgers. This could make or break their season, because if the season ended today those three teams would be in the playoffs but the Angels would not.

The Chicago Cubs have been having a fantastic season right now. They are currently in second for the National League Wild Card, with a six and a half game lead over the San Francisco Giants. This might be the first season since 2008 to get to the playoffs.

The Cubs Cross-Town rival, the Chicago White Sox, have a 62 – 70 record. The chances of the Sox getting into the postseason are very small.

Early in the Toronto Blue Jays season they traded for David Price, Troy Tulowitzki, and other notable players. The Blue Jays had a 21 – 5 record in August.

Postseason will begin in October. The postseason is shaping up to be a very thrilling race for the championship.
