I am a massive baseball fan from the UK; especially for the San Francisco Giants. However, I watch and write about all aspects of baseball. I watch some soccer and tennis also. Writing and sport are two passions of mine; being able to do both is a dream come true.

If patterns are anything to go by, the San Francisco Giants are set to win the World Series Championship. Having won, lost, won, lost and then 2014, here is how the Giants are set to line-up on opening day as they attempt to regain the crown they lost to the Boston Red Sox. INFIELD Catcher: Buster Posey - The former National League Most Valuable Player, is set to lead the Giants from behind the plate again. Having already gained the Rookie of the Year, MVP, and Batting Champion honors in his four seasons in the big leagues, he will aim to bounce back from his 2013 campaign in which he compiled: 15 home runs and 71 runs batted in with...

  The Los Angeles Dodgers are a franchise that is no stranger to spending big money and attracting the biggest and best players, but sometimes you can have too many. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out; there are three outfield positions, and the Los Angeles Dodgers have four outfielders - Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig and Carl Crawford - all of whom expect to start. Currently, the injured Matt Kemp is set to miss out on an opening day spot. However, he stated, "I'm no fourth outfielder." So what will the Dodgers do? The obvious move is to trade one of their outfielders. For me, that has to be Carl ...

  As we head into Spring, counting down the days to Opening Day, it's time to write up my predictions. We have seen some truly astonishing things this off-season, including; Jay Z earning Robinson Cano a mad $240 million deal, Masahiro Tanaka becoming the fifth highest paid pitcher in baseball history in order to don the pinstripes and so much more, here's what I think will happen in the coming season.   AMERICAN LEAGUE AL East - Last year the Boston Red Sox went from worst to first, sadly I can't see this happening for Toronto as they have simply hibernated this off-season. The Baltimore Orioles, likewise, have hit...

An iconic figure of baseball, Derek Jeter, announced he will retire after the 2014 season. He has spent all 19 of his seasons in the Bronx with the New York Yankees. He retires with 13 All-Star appearances, five Gold Gloves, five Silver Sluggers, five World Series rings, is a member of the 3,000 hit club, and will retire as one of the best shortstops ever. Earlier today, he released a statement online, announcing his inevitable retirement following the 2014 season, and thanking everyone who has ever helped him during his amazing career. After a disappointing, injury plagued year in 2013, he will hope to rebound in 2014, and lead his...

Just like a Hollywood movie, the Los Angeles Dodgers stormed to the National League West title leaving the rest in their wake. The Arizona Diamondbacks, San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies all failed to even worry the Dodgers a little. The Dodgers winning record of 92-70 is the benchmark each team will try to reach this season. In order to do so, all teams have considerably strengthened their rosters this off-season. First up are the Arizona Diamondbacks.  Their 2013 season was comprised of Paul "Goldy, Goldy, Gone!" Goldschmidt and not much more, as yet again they finished with a 81-81 record. They entered...

The Oakland Athletics stormed to the division title, the Texas Rangers narrowly missed out on the Wild Card, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim massively underperformed, the Seattle Mariners had a poor losing season and the Houston Astros continued their shocking form. Since then, each team has gone about adding the missing pieces to their line-ups, rotations and bullpens, making for an intriguing battle for the AL West title in 2014. Firstly, the reigning champions, the Oakland Athletics. They will aim to capture the AL West for a third consecutive year. Again, the As avoidance of the big headlines and big money free agents -- opting...
