Biggest Winners and Losers of MLB Week 6

In a week full of notable stories, the umpiring took center stage yet again.

There is a common misconception, at least among casual sports fans, that nothing really interesting happens in Major League Baseball until September. People act as if the games late in the season count for more than the one win or loss they do right now.

But to the people who look for drama early in the season, all you have to do is point them to everything that happened last week. It seemed like every day there was something noteworthy dominating the headlines.

Granted, not all of the headlines were good. In fact, given the nature of media reporting nowadays, the only way to get attention for a sport not in the playoffs now is when something bad happens.

Yet for all of the boneheaded things we saw, there were also some positive stories worth highlighting.

Here are the biggest winners and losers from the week that was in MLB.
