The Mid-Season Chew


Chew On This!
With the All-Star break behind us and the Trade Deadline approaching, we take a look around the BLC. Tight Divisional races and impressive performances look promising for an exciting second half of the season. With three top five teams in the Power Rankings, let's Chew Up the National League first....Out in the N.L. East looms the division leading reigning champion New York Mets. Anchored by All-Star and Cy Young hopeful SP Jake Faria along with the steady hitting Magneuris Sierra and Pablo Guerrero, they hold a 7 game lead over current Wild Card Washington Nationals who look to close the gap if Rafael Devers has a say in the matter. In the N.L. Central, it's the Chicago Cubs who are enjoying the biggest divisional lead in BLC at 12 games ahead of the Pittsburgh Pirates. All-Star starter Lucas Giolito and with the bats of fellow All-Star Theo Dorsey and Monroe Jefferson, they look poised to hold steady. And in the Wild Wild N.L. West sits the #1 ranked Arizona Diamondbacks with a Posse of hit-men that includes 3 (Hank Crawford-Jeffry Clayton-Ozzie Albies) of the top 5 in the batting title race, a top of the line starting rotation as well as the shut-down relief of their gunslinging closer Dan McDowell who has yet to blow a save, they look like the team to beat. Hot on the D'Backs spurs are the L.A. Dodgers at 5 games back. Can the likes of Nick Williams-Jamie Nunez and Edgar Norton force a showdown amongst the cacti and tumbleweeds in the desert lands of Arizona?


Now we'll Chew Up the American League where the 2 tightest division races are going down. The A.L. East is absolutely the toughest division in BLC right now. The Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox are deadlocked at 59-33 with the New York Yankees 2 games back, and the Red Hot Baltimore Orioles 3 back. Star players looking to influence the outcome here include: All-Stars Jose Ramirez Francisco Lindor and Cy Young hopeful Peter Fuller for the Rays. Big thumper J.D. Davis(what's the deal with HR hitting J.D.'s in Boston?) and Cy Young hopeful Robbie Ray for the Red Sox. Nick Delmonico Michael Conforto and Luis Severino in the Bronx. Current HR King Matt Olson Chet Lost and Parker Birdwell(fitting name for an Oriole) in Baltimore. The Toronto Blue Jays ended up with the short straw in the draw. The A.L. Central is the tightest division in BLC from top to bottom as only 8 games seperate the 5 teams. The Chicago White Sox with Sammie Hayes and Donnie Hamilton are clinging to a 1 game lead over the Cleveland Indians and Ace Corey Kluber while the Detroit Tigers are 3 back for now if All-Star Carlos Correa has his say. The Twins and Royals are still in the hunt @ 7 and 8 games back respectively. And lastly in the not so wild A.L. West is the surprising division leading Seattle Mariners behind the booming bat of MVP candidate Teoscar Hernandez(97 of his 107 hits are either 2B's or HR's) and the stellar relief of Bert Green, who currently have an 8 game edge over the Oakland A's. There's a lot of Baseball left to play, Heroes to emerge or falter and teams to solidify or crumble. No matter what happens....there will alway's be something to Chew On!
