I started the season predicting a Yankees-Cubs World Series, and as the unofficial second half begins this weekend, I still have a decent chance of getting it right, though, in truth, this is already shaping up as one of the most unpredictable postseasons ever. The National League couldn't be... [Read More]

The Red Sox could have a .500 record in their final 64 games and still reach 100 wins for the first time since 1946. Their 68 wins are the most by any team before the All-Star break. It doesn't guarantee them a World Series appearance, but history tells us that they've got a great chance. Best PRE ALL-STAR winning percentage, last 50 years   1. 1998 New York Yankees At the break: 61-20 (.753) Final record: 114-48 (.704), won World Series   2. 2001 Seattle Mariners... [Read More]

Former A's general manager Sandy Alderson, who recently began a leave of absence from his position as general manager of the Mets to address a recurrence of cancer, gave a positive appraisal of his health before Saturday's celebration of the A's 1989 World Series champion team at the Coliseum. Alderson, 70, the GM of A's teams that reached three straight World Series from 1988-90, announced he was stepping away from the Mets in June. Saturday, he and Wally Haas, son of... [Read More]

Almost 30 years have passed since the A's swept the Giants in the World Series in 1989, a series that was interrupted by the Loma Prieta earthquake and turned the Bay Area's attention away from baseball. There was no parade at the time, and understandably so. But on Saturday, in front of a sold-out crowd at the Coliseum, players from the 1989 team gathered to be honored in an on-field ceremony, receiving a belated parade ceremony for their championship.

Manager Jeff Banister believes left-hander Cole Hamels is fully committed to the Rangers despite comments this week about welcoming a return to Philadelphia. Hamels told philly.com that if a trade to the Phillies were to happen this season "it would be a blessing." Hamels began his career with Philadelphia and was a key figure on the 2008 club that won the World Series. Hamels also told philly.com that his focus is on pitching well with the Rangers. Banister said on Saturday that he picked up the same vibe. "Our conversations about that have been really good," Banister said. Hamels... [Read More]

The Mets are the perfect illustration of the warp speed at which professional sports operates and in which credit expires almost immediately. Their 2015 trip to the World Series might as well have happened in 1915, for all of its staying power. Instead of forming the foundation of an era of excellence, that season quickly... [Read More]

There's no way to soften the news for Giants fans: That Manny Machado deal was a killer. The Dodgers, given up for dead after the season's first six weeks, look like a reasonable bet to get back to the World Series. For the A's, who lost Game 4 of the double-weekend Bay Bridge Series on Friday night, the trade market is a little bit frightening as well. The highest cards have yet to be dealt, but there's a sense that the elite... [Read More]
