As the defending World Series champions, the Giants entered the season with the strap. From there, here are our rules.
1. A team must win a series from the champion to take the belt. One game isn’t going to cut it, considering it’s a 162-game season and teams all view the season in terms of series.

Now that the Cardinals have survived yet another title defense, they turn their attentions to the hated . Starting Friday, the champs and those Reds will face off in a three-game cage match in Cincinnati. At stake? The Eye On Baseball Heavyweight Championship.
And now lety Maguire feels they’d be further up the table if not for defensive lapses this season.He would much prefer a few ugly wins and a festive charge that puts United bang in the top-four picture.Ahead of today’s trip to Watford, Maguire admitted: “That’s stroll through the Halls of History and recall how we got here …
