The 2014 MLB regular season could not be going better; the fans, the players, the teams, the weather and the games have achieved all our expectations and the perfect World Series scenario is being created day-in day-out at the baseball fields.
Some of the most recent baseball news are focusing on the incredibly dynamic power rankings that continue to unveil many surprises. Some of the top teams on the list are: the Indians, the Rays , the Royals and the so-called “Evil Empire,” the New York Yankees.
Baseball underdog the Royals haven’t been to the playoffs since 1985, but it seems as the team has a real shot at the Central especially if we take into account that the Tigers are a mess right now, namely with the bullpen and Justin Verlander’s injury/struggles plus some offensive inconsistencies. And if the Royals continue to play well, they probably need to start getting as much national run as the Pirates did last MLB season.
The Indians and the Rays are some of the few franchises with the longest MLB playoff droughts, but there are always surprises as the week plays itself out.

On a different note, Atlanta Braves outfielder Justin Upton seemed to have an injury as he limped across the field during the eighth inning of tonight’s game 6-4 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez seemed to make the decision to remove Upton as soon as he reached third base to check on his outfielder.
“I hope it’s just something that is mild,” Gonzalez said. “We’ll check him tomorrow and get him back in there as soon as we can. We’ll let him do his treatment and let him get hydrated. Maybe we’ll get him back in a day or two. It’s a cruel game sometimes, but it doesn’t matter. They’re all professional hitters, all Major League hitters. You feel good that somebody could bloop one in there or hit a ball out of the ballpark or split a gap. I felt pretty good there in that situation.”
Los Angeles, which leads San Francisco by five games in the NL West, was trying to earn a sixth straight win over the Braves for the first time since Sept. 20, 1987-April 16, 1988. The Dodgers took a 2-0 lead in the second on RBI singles by Carl Crawford and Miguel Rojas.
