Major League Baseball

first_imgBelieve it or not, in just one week they will be playing major league baseball.  The last time I checked, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Milwaukee were leading the spring training standings.  I doubt that by the 4th of July all 3 of these teams will be ahead of the Chicago Cubs.  It is the same way in the American League where Cleveland is near the bottom of the spring training standings.If you have an established team, you spend a lot of your time picking your bench players.  You give them a lot of spring training appearances. You already know who most of your starters are going to be.  On the other side, teams who are trying to get better have to play more of their regulars so they can get the reps before the season starts. Teams like Cincinnati do not have a set lineup, so most of their positions are open.  That is why it is hard to make any predictions for the regular season based on anything going on in spring training.See you on Opening Day!last_img read more
