2012 MLB

Another Baseball Season and another bunch of articles. It has been a great season so far. The only MLB game that I got to see in person was in Houston  when the Nationals swept the hapless Astros, but even still for me it was cool. The regular season was amazing. No one could have predicted that the A’s, Orioles and Nationals would be in the playoffs. No one could have predicted that the Red Sox would lose over 90 games. No one expected young players like Bryce Harper and Manny Machado to make such big contributions. No one could have predicted that for the first time in 45 years that the Triple Crown of hitting would be achieved by Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers. No one would have thought that the modern record for no-hitters in a season of seven would be tied or that there would be three perfect games. This category will be added to as the playoffs and World Series continue, but for someone like me that loves this game so  much this season has been something special.

Here are links to my articles from this season.
