I have grown up in Boston during a time where all of their sports teams have thrived. Since 2002, one of our major sports team has won a championship title every year. This past week the Boston Red Sox won the World Series, and Boston fans are yet again going crazy over their city of championships. Here are some awesome tweets that have been released about the city's amazing streak.

1.@PatriotsSBLII

"The Red Sox ended a 630-day championship drought for the only city that measures its championship drought in days."

2. @sargvn

"How lucky are we to live in New England where we piss excellence."

3. @stoolpresidente

"My favorite part of being from Boston is being better than everybody else."

4. @Ian_OConnor

"On 10/17/04, the Red Sox entered 9th inn of ALCS Game 4 down 0-3 & 1 run to greatest closer ever, about to go 86 years w/o a title. They've won 4 World Series w/3 managers since that night. The haunted franchise now haunts everyone else."


@AdamMKaufman "The #Patriots won last night. The #Celtics and #Bruins won tonight.
The #RedSox #WorldSeries parade is tomorrow. Boston fans are dressing as winners for Halloween."

It is finally February and you know what that means (if you don't know well then I am here to tell you). This is the month that BASEBALL SEASON begins! Whether it be MLB Spring Training or college baseball this is the month where the sport gets into full swing - no pun intended.

Do I understand and like the game of baseball? Yeah, sure I do.

Do I like the cuties in the baseball pants who play the sport more than the actual game? Yes, of course.

That is obviously what is more important! If you are like me and are wondering who it is to look for this coming season, then this is the place to find out! Through online searches across a variety of platforms and a ton of rosters, I have put together my own list below of the top hottest professional baseball players. With this said go ahead sit back, grab some Cracker Jacks and scroll away!

1. Kevin Kiermaier

This Tampa Bay String Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier with the gorgeous green eyes definitely deserves a spot at the top of this list. He could probably rank the highest on a list for the "Most Gorgeous Eyes".

2. Adam Duvall

A 2014 World Series winner with the San Francisco Giants, Adam Duvall is now a left fielder and first baseman for the Cinncinatti Reds.

3. Charlie Culberson

Wow, does this picture even a caption? Charlie Culberson is an infielder who recently was picked up by the Atlanta Braves only a few days ago so disregard the LA Dodgers gear and become a Braves fan!

4. Ian Desmond

As a Colorado native, I am a for sure a fan of my home team. The tall, dark, and handsome Ian Desmond is a left fielder and first baseman for the Rockies who can pull off the color purple very, very well.

5. Kris Bryant

Not only does Kris Bryant play third base and outfield for the Chicago Cubs, he was also featured as a male model for Express. Google that. You will be happy you did.

6. Bryce Harper

All in favor say "I"! Bryce Harper is a right fielder for the Washington Nationals. He also modeled in ESPN's magazine with very minimal clothing. So, create another browser tab ASAP and google image search.

7. Jorge Soler

Look at that smile, so, so cute! Jorge Soler is a designated hitter and outfielder for the Kansas City Royals, as well as a known previous team member for the Cuban national baseball team.

8. Jake Lamb

Umm, the fact that this photo is a candid just blows my mind. He is standing there doing nothing and somehow manages to look like that!? Jake Lamb is the third baseman for the Arizona Diamondbacks as #22.

9. Grady Sizemore

Grady Sizemore is an outfielder for the Cleveland Indians and those dimples are, needless to say, irresistible!

Bryce Harper And Manny Machado Are In A Race To The World Series

This offseason, two of the biggest free agents in recent memory of Major League Baseball (MLB), but as time went on neither Machado or Harper had signed a blockbuster deal.

Manny Machado and Bryce Harper are two of baseball's greatest rising stars, and fans and teams were waiting for the 2018-2019 offseason where both Machado and Harper were going to be on the free-agent market. Throughout the offseason, neither superstar had signed a contract yet, and as time got closer for players to report to Florida, and Arizona for spring training. After the two were able to sign their respective contract, now people are wondering which player will be able to win their first World Series trophy with their new team.

Throughout the MLB offseason, reporters and fans have been drooling to see what contracts two of the biggest free agents in recent memory would receive this year.

As the winter months came and went, neither Machado or Harper had a job for the 2019 MLB season, and when pitchers and catchers reported to camp, the thought actually occurred that Machado or Harper would have to be bagging groceries when it came to Opening Day. As the old saying goes, once the first domino falls, the rest come crashing down, and on February 20th, 2019 the San Diego Padres signed Manny Machado to a 10 year, $300 million deal. Eight days later the Philadelphia Phillies signed Bryce Harper to a 13 year $330 million deal. Both Machado and Harper had opportunities to win with their previous teams, neither was able to hoist the Commissioner's Trophy.

While the Padres are "a few years away" from contending to win, we saw this year where the Atlanta Braves were able to expedite the process by bringing farm talent to the big leagues. The Phillies, on the other hand, are in a win now scenario, with stars like Rhys Hoskins, Aaron Nola, and Jake Arrieta, they have the chance to contend for the NL East and possibly a World Series title.

So, which star will be the first to get their rings fitted?

Bryce Harper, while Machado is an incredible player, he will have to go through the Colorado Rockies, which just extend future Hall of Famer Nolan Arenado and the Los Angeles Dodgers who will always contend for World Series titles. Harper, on the other hand, is going to a team that was one piece away from taking the division home a year ago, while it looks like Harper's former team the Washington Nationals will rebound after a mediocre year in their standards, and the aforementioned Atlanta Braves are the reigning division champs.

If the Phillies can get star pitcher Jake Arrieta back to CY Young form, and with the addition of veteran outfielder Andrew McCutchen, the Phillies are in a great scenario to win the World Series for the first time since 2008.

While by no means is the contract Harper got favorable to the Phillies, they knew that Harper was the missing piece to win the World Series. Also, I'm not saying Machado and the Padres aren't going to contend for World Series in the future, just not as soon as the Phillies are. Now, if the Padres can pick up a star pitcher to have a stranglehold on their rotation *cough, cough Dallas Keuchel* then possibly they can contend for World Series in 2-3 years. But, as everything stands right now the Philadelphia Phillies, along with Bryce Harper are on their way to win a World Series before the San Diego Padres with Manny Machado.
