It's been a short week for regular season baseball and we already shared some great pictures of the All Star Game (check previous post) but we had to share the excitement of the second half! This is where things get crazy and performance matters the most.
The first half is definitely useful because it establishes chemistry and warns a team if they are ready for a postseason or not. Look at teams that struggled in the first half, if they're doing really really really bad, then October is golf season. If they're middle of pack, then they can still do well enough to maybe get that wild card. That's when the second half comes into play.
This half is when teams lose leads or gain them for the postseason. To get into the playoffs for baseball is one of the trickiest and toughest races out there.
We shall see what happens next but it's only begun.
Summer isn't complete without baseball.
