Just when it seemed the division can’t get any better, the San Diego Padres started to play up to their potential this season- even without Fernando Tatis Jr. – and the rebuilding Arizona Diamondbacks have been much better than advertised. Despite all the typical turnover of…

The altitude of Denver is a silent killer of many athletic performances, particularly as it concerns marathon runners and pitchers. One of the more visible variables of sport is that of the wind.

The aptly nicknamed Hot Stove League kicked off in San Diego at the Winter Meetings with Scott Boras inking consecutive record-breaking contracts for his aces Stephen Strasburg and Gerrit Cole.

With the 60-game abbreviated season requiring teams to play strictly within their region, Colorado will play the National League West for 40 games and the American League West for 20 interleague games. The west will be won in the west and against nine other teams that have the same belief that…
