As baseball season comes to a close, people will miss getting to watch their favorite baseball players in high definition. I'm not the biggest baseball fan but I have watched it more often now since I am in a relationship with a baseball fan.

So, I've compiled a list of the hottest baseball players so that you can know who to watch next year even if you aren't a baseball fan.

1. Bryce Harper, Washington Nationals

He may be signed to a different team soon but he definitely is the MVP for the Nationals.

2. Trea Turner, Washington Nationals

He has a classic boy next door look.

3. Clayton Kershaw, LA Dodgers

Reason one: He's 6'4". Reason two: his contract is $32 million.

4. Mike Trout, LA Angels

All you have to do to fall in love is look at those muscles.

This shortstop from the Dominican Republic is hot and has some of the best stats in his position in baseball right now.

Anyone can get lost in those eyes.

I'm not usually a fan of facial hair, but he can pull off a full beard better than anyone.

A baseball player or a male model, let me know with that hair I'd like to run my fingers through.

7 Struggles Of A Girl Who Understands Sports

Other girls just don't get it.

I love sports.

I live for the time of the year when football season and basketball season overlap so I can watch my two favorite sports at the same time. However, as any other girl that likes sports knows, there are a few different struggles that we experience on a day-to-day basis.

1. People won't believe you.

I've gotten very accustomed to the “look" people give you when you tell them you like to watch sports. It's a look that reeks of disbelief. I'm sorry I don't know the blood type of the former coach's oldest son. You'll just have to learn to let it go... but yes, I do watch sports.

2. People will try to explain the game to you.

Yes, I know that was a sack. Yes, I see that it's a fourth down. Yes, I know what foul that was. Yes, they are about to take a free throw. Please stop talking while I watch my team play. Thanks for trying to keep me updated, though.

3. Guys will think you are trying to impress them.

Dude, stop flirting with me while the game is on. Don't block the TV. I need to see this. I could care less about you. My team is playing.


4. Your girlfriends will never care about sports as much as you do.

You will have to beg and grovel just to get them to watch the game with you. Even then, either they won't pay attention, or they will ask you what's going on every couple of minutes.


5. No one finds it acceptable when you yell at the TV.

My dad yelled at the TV during football games when I was growing up. My guy friends do it. But the minute I open my mouth when my team starts losing, people start staring at me and silently begging me to act more like a lady.


6. Women's' sports apparel is awful.

I get asked on a regular basis when shopping for team apparel, “Do you need me to show you where the women's stuff is?" No, no, nope, absolutely not. I would much prefer not to run around with rhinestones on my chest or in a pink football jersey. I'm cringing at the thought.

7. You turn into a child when your team loses.

No, it is not my time of the month. You know good and well my team just lost. Don't speak. I'm going to my room to lie down under my baby blanket and eat chocolate ice cream. It's just too much.

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.
