In the blink of an eye, we are more than halfway through the 162-game MLB season. So, what happened in the first half? Let's see ... The Yankees are on pace for 113 wins. The Dodgers and Astros aren't far behind. Jacob deGrom hasn't pitched, but the Mets are still in first place. We've had 14-game winning streaks from the Braves and Mariners (the latter one is active). The Reds started the season 3-22 and the Blue Jays fired their manager despite being in a playoff position.
Aaron Judge has a shot at 60 home runs and we've seen eight-RBI games from Rowdy Tellez, Josh Naylor, Joc Pederson and the indomitable Shohei Ohtani. Dodgers pitchers Tony Gonsolin and Tyler Anderson are a combined 21-1 and Matt Carpenter and his mustache have produced an astonishing 13 home runs and 34 RBIs in just 79 at-bats for the Yankees -- a .354/.469/.911 line from a player who hit under .200 the past two seasons for the Cardinals.
As we come out of the All-Star break, let's take one last look back at the first half of the 2022 season and grade all 30 teams on their performances.
