It is still early in the baseball season, but there are plenty of exciting things that are happening this season that will impact October.
First off, the Mariano injury. Who will the Yankees choose to replace the greatest closer of all time?
There are top prospects, such as the Nationals' Bryce Harper and Pedro Alvarez for the Pirates, that have taken center stage for their respective teams and are performing exceptionally well.
On a larger perspective, many teams have something to prove this weekend. Have the Angels finally arrived? Can the Orioles prove they are for real in their first games against Boston since eliminating them from the playoffs last year?
These are just some of the exciting things that are going on in another great weekend of baseball.
