Lo absurdo de la Liga Nacional la carrera de cartas se puede resumir en una oración, que no era aplicable hace tan solo una semana: los Gigantes de San Francisco están en ella. Sí, los gigantes. Se han convertido en contendientes a través de una combinación de un tramo ganador prolongado y la mediocridad general […]

The absurdity of the wild-National Series t race cards can be summed up in one sentence, not applicable no later than a week ago: San Francisco's Giants are there. Yes, the Giants.

1. Dodgers: There still are more than two months left in the season, but there’s no questioning this juggernaut as No. 1. The question remains if it finally will translate to a World Series title. 2. Yankees: The Bronx Bombers won 16 of their last 20 games heading into the All-Star break to take a sizable lead in the AL East. They face a seven-game road trip this week at Minnesota and Fenway Park that can further solidify them at the top of the AL. 3. Twins: Their AL Central lead has shrunk against the surging Indians, but they just took 2-of-3 against the Tribe and are happily welcoming Eddie Rosario back. 4. Astros: Look for Houston to add an arm before the deadline as it lacks rotation depth behind its top three of Justin Verlander, Gerrit Cole and Wade Miley. 5. Braves: The Braves have been on fire over the last month-plus, winning 25-of-33 at one point. 6. Rays: The acquisition of Travis d’Arnaud has been a huge lift for the Rays, who are staying on top of the wild-card race. 7. Athletics: Once 36-36 on June 16, the A’s won 19 of their next 24 and now are within striking distance of the Astros in the AL West. 8. Indians: There’s been talk of the Tribe being sellers at the deadline, but they could turn into buyers after a strong stretch that’s put them in the thick of the wild-card hunt. 9. Cubs: The loss of catcher Willson Contreras will test them in a big way. 10. Nationals: It’s almost seemed like two different seasons for the Nationals, who looked dead at 12 games below .500 on May 23, and now somehow are leading the NL wild-card standings. BOSTON MA. – JULY 13: Chris Sale #41 of the Boston Red Sox reacts after giving up a run in the 5th as the Red Sox take on the Dodgers at Fenway Park on July 13, 2019 in Boston, MA. (Staff Photo By Stuart Cahill/MediaNews Group/Boston Herald) 11. Red Sox: Can the Red Sox fix Chris Sale? The answer — and of course, their bullpen — could determine if they make the playoffs or not. 12. Rangers: The Rangers have been a bit up and down of late, but the return of Hunter Pence, who was voted to start the All-Star Game, should be a big lift. 13. Angels: There won’t be a better moment in baseball this season than the Angels’ combined no-hitter on the night they honored the late Tyler Skaggs. 14. Phillies: The Phillies will need more of what Bryce Harper provided — his first walk-off hit with the team in a win over the Dodgers last week — to climb into the playoffs. 15. Diamondbacks: The D’backs are in a bit of a pickle, caught in the middle of being buyers and sellers at the deadline as they’re in the thick of the wild-card hunt. 16. Cardinals: The Cardinals, who rank near the bottom of the NL in offense, could use a bat to help them in a playoff push. Or they could look within. See: Goldschmidt, Paul. 17. Brewers: The Brewers have reverted to their early season form after they led the NL Central a month ago. They could use some help at the deadline. 18. Rockies: The Rockies’ pitching has been dreadful. As of Wednesday, their ERA was 5.40, second-worst in MLB, compounded by a 19-2 loss to the Giants. Yet, they’re still in the playoff hunt. 19. Padres: The Padres took three out of four from the Dodgers to end the first half, but couldn’t carry the momentum after the All-Star break. 20. Pirates: The Bucs played stretches of good baseball in the first half, but starting the second half by losing 5-of-6 isn’t what the doctor ordered. 21. Giants: The Giants won a stretch of 10-of-12 games, but the good times likely won’t last, especially when they ultimately unload Madison Bumgarner before the deadline. 22. Reds: The good news: As of Wednesday, the Reds ranked third in the majors in ERA. The bad: They rank 26th in runs scored. 23. White Sox: The White Sox flirted with a wild-card spot for a little while, but this always was a rebuilding season on the South Side. 24. Mets: The story of the Mets’ season: Zack Wheeler, who seems to be the best player the team is willing to trade, just landed on the injured list. 25. Mariners: The M’s will be selling over these next few weeks, and former Red Sox pitcher Roenis Elias, who has been the team’s closer, is drawing interest. 26. Marlins: Starlin Castro has performed well recently for the Fish, which means there’s a good chance he’ll be sent packing soon. 27. Blue Jays: Vlad Guerrero Jr.’s performance in a Home Run Derby he didn’t even win will be the 2019 highlight for the Blue Jays. 28. Royals: The Royals already are unloading, having dealt Homer Bailey to the A’s and Martin Maldonado to the Cubs, and there may be more to come. 29. Tigers: The offense remains dreadful, and in a year in which long ball is king, they’re one of two teams that don’t even have 90 homers to their name yet. 30. Orioles: The O’s traded their best starter, Andrew Cashner, to the Red Sox for a couple of 17-year-olds. If and when those two are ready for the big leagues, maybe the Orioles will be ready to contend again.

I was considering waiting until after the deadline to write this, but I feel it’s best to decide when it’s less obvious about what teams will do at the deadline. Teams like the Yankees, Rays, Red Sox, Twins, Astros, Braves, Cubs, and Dodgers are clear contenders with no intention of selling, and are all looking […]

The White Sox are not on Greinke’s no-trade list, and he would be a much-needed veteran presence on a young pitching staff.

A glance at the mid-to-late July MLB standings presents a first impression of great parody, especially in the American League. After all, there are currently 17 winning teams across both leagues, 9 of which come from the AL. However, those W-L totals and win percentages can be a bit misleading. As we near closer to […]
