Baseball 2019 And A Look Back

July 30, 2019

Eight of the thirty major league baseball teams are at least ten games under the .500/break even mark and are out of contention for a playoffs berth.

Four of the teams, all in the American League, the Toronto Blue Jays, Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals are playing under .400 baseball and are an astounding, aggregate 130 games below .500.

The above phrase may be alliterative, however, these teams, being this relatively bad, is not a good thing for baseball.

Two other A.L. and two N.L. teams more than 10 games “under” and “out” are the Chicago White Sox and Seattle Mariners of the American League and the Miami Marlins and Pittsburgh Pirates of the National League.

 

A happy memory, though now nearly forty years ago, Willie Stargell, a true great, pictured above, led the Pittsburgh Pirates to the 1979 World Series title.

The “Buccos” have won their last 3 World Series (1960, 1971 and 1979) last losing one in 1927 to a superb Yankees team that featured among others, Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.
