Time to turn another page and close another chapter on a book that continues to be written. The latest entry into the tome of MLB's history was, um, odd.
We saw brawls, gaffes and goats; unwritten rules, nostalgia for the sport and emerging talent also played a major role. Oh, and there was a Puig in there somewhere.
Rather than wrap up the World Series and forget all about baseball for the winter months, we decided to collect all the moments—precious, absurd, vile and otherwise—and throw it all together in a digital yearbook of sorts. (You can sign my copy in the comments section below.)
For clarity, we have broken things down into three sections:
Superlatives: How else are we going to find out who has Best Hair?
Moments: Whether precious or harrowing, these are the moments we will most remember.
Change: The thing that was most startling about 2013 was how much change took place in such a historically stubborn sport. Sounds confusing, but it will all make sense shortly.
With that, we shall dust off the lucky cap and dive into baseball one last time for the 2013 MLB season.
