Happy Memorial Day

Memorial Day is upon us. I want to say thank you to all of those men and women who have served their country.  I appreciate you for your service to our country .

Is this a benchmark day for baseball? Of the last 21 teams who held or were tied for the best record in baseball entering Memorial Day since 1995, 18 of those ended up making the postseason. Only five of those clubs — the 1998 Yankees, 2004 Red Sox, 2005 White Sox, 2007 Red Sox and 2014 Giants — won the World Series.

I guess after reading that I wouldn’t call it a benchmark. I always think of the teams that have runs or get hot in August or September and come out of nowhere to win their division or the wild card berth.

Time will tell if the Royals (.636 winning %) will take on the Cardinals (.644 winning %) in this years World Series.
