2012 Major League Baseball Preview: National League

East Division Philadelphia Phillies Miami Marlins-* Atlanta Braves Washington Nationals New York Mets Analysis:  This division rivals the AL East for the best division in baseball.  Teams one through four have a chance to make some serious noise this season.  The Phillies still have their Big Three in the pitching rotation in Roy Halladay, Cliff…

Kentucky vs. Louisville = Duke Vs. UNC

Move over Duke-UNC. Kentucky-Louisville is as fierce as it gets. Growing up in ACC country, I never thought I’d see myself type that.  But, as they say, “I gotta keep it real”.
