Recap of Wednesday's live chat with Rob Neyer
JUN 18, 2014 1:30p ET
Those of you who haven't been seduced by the World Cup over the past week will know: Baseball is still going on.
We're in the middle of June, and things are heating up as we creep closer to the All-Star break. As it stands, we have two interesting divisional races in the AL Central and the NL East. The scorching-hot Royals just overtook the Tigers for first place in the AL Central, and a three-way race between the Braves, Nationals and Marlins has three NL East teams within a half game of each other.
Elsewhere, the Bay Area continues its reign over both leagues as the Giants and A's remain the best two teams in baseball. And in the Northeast, the Yankees, Red Sox and Mets continue to be mediocre to poor.
One constant through it all? The ever-churning musings of Rob Neyer. Lately he's written on how baseball will never see another hitter like Tony Gwynn, the Matt Cain conundrum, why GMs are the best deal in the game, and what he learned from Mariano Rivera's memoir.
So give those a read if you haven't already, fire up some packaged oatmeal and start sending in your comments below. Then join us at 1:30 p.m. ET.
