2013 MLB Preview: NL West


The West isn't as terrible as we once thought. OK, the San Diego Padres are pretty bad, but the reigning World Series Champion San Francisco Giants reside out in the West (their second championship in three years). The Giants now have legitimate competition for the division as the Los Angeles Dodgers are spending money like they just won the lottery and the Arizona Diamondbacks are collecting pieces to help them compete as well. The race for the West should be pretty compelling this year.

2013 MLB Preview: NL East


The NL East is extremely bi-polar this year. The Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves will both compete as the best team in all of baseball. Then, on the other end of the spectrum, you have the Philadelphia Phillies, Miami Marlins, and New York Mets. The recently firesaled Marlins can probably make the strongest case as the worst team in baseball. They most certainly have the biggest piece of shit owner. Then you have the Mets and Phillies who are just straight up bad.

Why Kick Ass 2 Can Tell Us All We Need To Know About Superhero Movies

Recently, Universal Studios released a full length Red Band trailer for the film Kick Ass 2 (release date August 16, 2013). Earlier this year, I had the film ranked as my 6th most anticipated film of 2013 without knowing anything about it. After seeing an official trailer now, I might have to move the film higher on my list. You can watch the trailer here:

2013 MLB Preview: AL Central


The AL Central might be the worst division in baseball but it's still my division. My team is the Chicago White Sox and for better or worse, this is the division that I follow the most and that I care most about.

2013 MLB Preview: AL West


The Houston Astros now move over to the AL West which now means that every team in baseball now has five teams in it. The AL West sent two teams to the playoffs last year: the division winners and then two time reigning pennant winner Texas Rangers and the lonely Moneyball Oakland Athletics. The Angels also gave everyone a run for their money winning 89 games and barely missing the playoffs. The Angels also grabbed another Texas Ranger in the offseason, outfielder Josh Hamilton, making their line up that much closer to murderer's row. The Angels sent 1B/DH Kendrys Morales to the Seattle Mariners, a team who also picked up OF Jason Bay in the offseason in attempt to improve their atrocious line up. They also moved in the fences to help with that as well. This should be another exciting and tight year in the AL West- at least at the top of the division.

2013 MLB Preview: AL East


We are living in a weird age for the AL East. Last year the Boston Red Sox finished last in the division while the Baltimore Orioles finished second and made it to the playoffs. The offseason was even stranger. The Toronto Blue Jays spent money and acquired players like they were the New York Yankees while they Yankkes themselves spent like they were the Oakland A's- with their biggest pick being a seemingly washed up Kevin Youkilis.
