I must be the owner of a faulty calendar.
We can't possibly be two months into the 2013 MLB regular season, can we? Is it possible that, in what seems like the blink of an eye, 30 percent of the season is already behind us?
But what a two months it's been.
We've seen Yu Darvish come within an out of the 24th perfect game in baseball history, not to mention multiple no-hit bids by pitchers in both leagues be broken up late.
Multi-home run games, inside-the-park home runs, clutch hits, superb fielding...through two months, the 2013 season has had something for everyone.
Yet for all the great performances that we've seen, who has been the best of the best?
Taking a page from the NBA, imagine, if you will, that baseball names three All-MLB teams at the end of the season. Each roster is composed of a starting pitcher from each side of the mound, a closer, a designated hitter and one player at each position on the field.
Consider the players that follow your first All-MLB team.
