Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder leading the way for the MIlwaukee BrewersIn this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris take a look around the MLB landscape to assess which divisions are in the bag and where the pennant and/or wild card races aren't. The Detroit Tigers and Philadelphia Phillies probably don't have anything to worry about, but Texas Rangers and possibly the Milwaukee Brewers may.

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Jorge PosadaThe anti-storybook season of Jorge Posada became more interesting this week. Not only did the veteran New York Yankees player celebrate his 40th birthday by striking out looking to end and lose a 5-4 game to the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday, he also announced that he’s considering playing in 2012. The most interesting part is that there’s a better chance that no pitcher will go down with another arm injury ever again than the Yankees signing Posada one more time.

After getting lit up on Wednesday night against the Toronto Blue Jays, Lackey sounded off to the media, not holding back any of his frustration and even taking a cheap shot at Toronto utility infielder John McDonald. It was a classless moment from a guy who’s clearly struggling to be the guy everybody – including himself – expects him to be.
