    The 9 Longest Postseason Droughts in Major League Baseball

    In case you hadn’t noticed, the 2012 Major League Baseball season is heading toward another exciting conclusion. Sure, it most likely won’t be as thrilling as the conclusion to the 2011 Major League Baseball season. (We’ll probably go another 50 or 60 years before we see anything like that again.)

      Things got pretty heated last night between the Cubs and Nationals in Washington, DC, and on two separate occasions the tensions almost escalated into full-on brawls.

    Most broadcast booths around Major League Baseball contain at least one former ballplayer, because of the idea that they can provide insights into the game that us regular folks never could.
