Three MLB Teams to Watch in 2017

They may not be the best, but they'll be fun to watch.

The 2016 Major League Baseball season is coming to a close in the next few days. As several teams prepare for the playoffs, even more teams are setting their eyes on Reporting Day 2017. There are a few teams, that have already been eliminated from playoff contention, that fans should watch next season. Some of these teams will be in contention next year, while some won't be as competitive, but should be fun to watch.

1. Atlanta Braves

The Braves were out of contention early in 2016, but they have quietly been a decent team following the All-Star break. Atlanta has been the worst team at home in 2016, but with the move to SunTrust Park in 2017, the Braves should feed off the environment to improve that record. On top of improving the home record, the Braves are about to give full reigns to the prospects that they have built up over the past few years. Dansby Swanson, teamed with early 2017 MVP pick, Freddie Freeman, will look to lead the Braves to success in 2017.

2. Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers have been stashing a plethora of prospects, as they were rated by as having the best farm system after the All-Star Break in 2016. The Brewers will be a young team in 2017, but there should finally be some kind of buzz coming from the Brew Crew. It's been a while since the Brewers have had national attention - maybe that is turning the corner to return.

3. New York Yankees

There is a CHANCE that the Yankees will make the playoffs in 2016, but they'll probably be eliminated by the time this goes up. The Baby Bombers are LOADED with young, explosive talent. Gary Sanchez, Aaron Judge, Tyler Austin, Clint Frazier (not up yet,) and many others. This team, full of youngsters, was better than the team that was on the field prior to the trading deadline. They're already learning NYC and the way baseball is handled there - next season, they may just be one of the best teams in Major League Baseball.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
