Ranking the MLB divisions from toughest to easiest

In 2016, the American League East produced three playoff teams and a fourth with a record over .500, while the Chicago Cubs won the National League Central by 17.5 games and had competition from only one other team over the .500 mark. Being in...

Diamondbacks have many suitors, but little interest in moving Pollock

JABO: The Diamondbacks’ Hidden Star

A few months ago, someone asked me who the most underrated player in baseball was, and after kicking around a few names, I settled on Arizona outfielder A.J. Pollock.

Hottest hitter in baseball? Pollock just trusting the process

PHOENIX -- A.J. Pollock has reached the tip-of-the-cap stage of his career. It is a good sign, an indication of a player who has found his sweet spot and isn't being swayed by whimsy or the ill effects of the previous at-bat.
