    9 MLB Teams That Should Already Call It Quits

    Yeah, I know there’s still a long way to go in the 2013 MLB season. After all, we’re over a month-and-a-half away from the all-star break. Mathematically speaking, anything can happen, and every division is still wide open.

    We’re only six weeks into the 2013 MLB season, and already we’ve seen umpires blow a number of calls that have had real impacts on the outcomes of games. Are the umpires somehow worse than they used to be? Probably not. The increase in the number of bad calls probably has more to do with […]
