Remember when Baseball Tonight said the NL West race was over?
When the month of June began, the San Francisco Giants were one of the hottest teams in baseball. Those same Giants have now lost 15 of their last 19 games. It was not long ago that Bruce Bochy’s team was 9.5 games ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West division. Now, the two teams are tied.
While the Giants were streaking in May and June, the Dodgers looked lost. LA quickly turned things around and ended the month of June with a 17-10 record after Sunday night’s win over the St. Louis Cardinals. That brings us to the following tweet from “Baseball Tonight,” which was sent just over two weeks ago.

This is baseball. We haven’t even gotten to the All-Star break yet, so every divisional race across the league is still open. Teams get hot and cold all the time, and you can never tell exactly where they will end up by looking at the standings in June.
Baseball Tonight could probably learn a thing or two from Seth.
