2016 Baseball Update

August 24, 2016

Before going back to more history regarding teams that won as many as three consecutive pennants, an update and some comments on baseball in 2016.

The reason the three straight pennants history crossed my mind is the fact the Kansas City Royals now with 9 straight victories still have an outside shot to at least make the baseball tournament and bid for a third straight pennant. “Experts” consider them 30 to 1 underdogs to accomplish that feat.

Meanwhile the Chicago Cubs, a franchise cited in the last post as one that won 3 straight pennants are very likely to be the National League “one seed” in a bid to win their first pennant in 71 years.

The Cubs have a 7 game lead over the Washington Nationals in the one seed race while the Los Angeles Dodgers, now two games ahead of the San Francisco Giants in the N.L. West, are ten games behind.
