The 2016 Season is Officially a Sprint

Ladies and gentleman I touched on this a bit yesterday on the blog but today I want to really go over and showcase the importance of today. Today not only does the calendar change from August to September but I have also said that September 1st marks the end of the MLB season being a marathon and this is where the regular season officially becomes a sprint.

Both the August 1st and August 31st trade deadlines are now in the books. September call ups are upon us. The pennant races in almost every division in both the American League and the National League are tight or competitive and the races for both Wild Card spots in the respective leagues are a jumbled mess, but in a good way.

Five months in the books, one more to go before things get really interesting. We have the entire month of September to go, two games in October and then the postseason. It is no longer getting late pretty early Yankees family. It’s late and it’s time to give it everything we’ve got.

We’re not in a marathon any longer. I can see the finish line in the distance. It’s time to sprint.
