Baseball lost a titan and true pioneer of the game this week with the death of Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra. No I’m not talking about the lovable bear. The legendary Yankee won a whopping 10 World Series for the prestigious New York Yankees and really made the franchise the stable powerhouse that it is alongside Joe DiMaggio.

Certain teams have already punched their tickets into the postseason but some teams are still jockeying for those wild card spots and the coveted division title (pennant) which always insures a franchise a chance to get to the Fall Classic. A power shift is occurring as the fabled Yankees, and last year’s champs, The Boston Red Sox are out of playoff contention. The Yankees are only 5 games behind the Kansas City Royals but with 12 games they will have to go on quite a tear and pray for some help. Rest assured that drastic changes will be forthcoming for both teams. Continue reading The Hunt For October
