While New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter tries to finish his Hall of Fame career in pinstripes the way he started it, with a World Series title, and the Detroit Tigers aim to unseat the defending champion Boston Red Sox, the West looks to be one of baseball’s top divisions again in 2014.
Derek Jeter’s retirement after the 2014 season will come as a relief to Cleveland Indians fans. The future Hall of Fame shortstop’s numbers against the Seattle Mariners, however, may surprise you.
Raul Ibanez, who has eight years worth of service as a Seattle Mariner, looks to be joining the team for a third time.
After the start of Sunday’s game was delayed more than two hours by rain, Mariners starter Blake Beavan worked seven innings in a 2-1 loss to the AL West-leading Texas Rangers, the team that drafted him in the first round five years ago out of nearby Irving High School.
The season to date in the AL West is best summed up by one word: fireworks.
