Baltimore still holds the largest division lead in the majors at 8 1/2 games over the New York Yankees as it tries to win its first AL East title since 1997.
With some of their best hitters slumping, the Baltimore Orioles desperately need someone to pick up the slack. Enter rookie catcher Caleb Joseph.
As the post-All-Star Game portion of the season is about to begin, let’s see how I’m doing up to this point.
Prior to last season, I picked the Washington Nationals to win the NL pennant. The Nats finished 86-76 and out of the playoffs. Will they redeem themselves in ’14? Let’s find out.
I like the trade for Scott Feldman. He should help the Orioles. This isn’t a barnburner, but it should make them better.
On Friday, I made my predictions for the upcoming American League baseball season. Now, it’s time for the National League picks.
The latest installment of predictions will focus on the biggest division in baseball the NL Central. Last season the Reds came out of nowhere to win the division and have big aspirations for 2011.
