And down the stretch they come.

We’re in mid-August and entering the home stretch of the Major League Baseball season. By the time you read this, teams will have roughly 40 games left until playoff time. It looks like there are some foregone conclusions, but also a few hard-fought races – particularly for some of the squads battling it out for wild card spots.

The competition for MLB’s individual awards looks a little different. We have a little bit of turnover from midseason, but it has mostly been holdover chalk; some of our picks at the halfway mark have really solidified their positions. While we’ve got a couple of two- or three-man races, it’ll really take some leaps for anyone else to crowd their way in. But hey – six weeks is a LONG time. And a lot can happen. We’ll just have to see how it plays out.

This is Clubhouse Leaders.
