    As far as the "down the stretch" thing...a win in April counts the same as a win in September. When you win is irrelevant.
    Agreed - let's also not forget that the Angels had a better record in a tougher division than the Tigers, anyway.

    The fact that Trout didn't win the MVP made me sick. That's all I'll be saying for this topic. . .

    Just to remind, Justin Upton was number one on this list last year.

    The Braves have such a young nucleus(Heyward,Freeman,Medlen,Beachy,Kimbrel,Simm ons,Minor) and is exciting in so many ways... But the pessimist inside me wonders if Atlanta will be able to afford most of these guys when their arb years are nearing an end... Maybe Liberty Media will expand the payroll $5 MM every offseason!!

    Starting next year every team will get 20-25 million from the new TV deals. Now there's a good chance the prices of players will escalate a bit but the Braves payroll should be in the 110 range next year.

    Can you please post a link to the TV deal you are speaking of? And I'm guessing you are speaking of a shared percentage from a national MLB tv deal?
