There's an air of optimism north of the border for 2020 and with good reason. The Toronto Blue Jays are on the up and with some new additions to their roster, there is a belief that this team is trending upwards in the AL East.
Another 2020 MLB season preview, another team deep in a rebuild: It's the Seattle Mariners.
In 2019, the Tampa Bay Rays posted a 96-66 record and clinched a wild card spot in the process. It was a huge stride in the right direction for a team with a young core, so there is excitement as the team head into the 2020 season.
Zion Williamson and LeBron James duelled for the first time this week. The Los Angeles Lakers won the game and James took over, scoring a season-high 40 points.
The Toronto Raptors were in the realm of being written off after Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green departed for pastures new in Los Angeles. Despite being reigning NBA champions, and retaining exciting young talents along with seasoned veterans, the Raps were considered a lower-echelon Eastern Conference team.
The Cincinnati Reds failed to reach the MLB postseason yet again but there were some very encouraging signs in their 2019 performance, which is hard to find in many other 75-87 teams. The Reds achieved an 11-win year-to-year improvement behind a solid first year for manager David Bell and behind a historic season to their starting rotation, which had the fifth-best ERA in the NL.
So why did Rob Manfred and Major League Baseball decide that the only suitable punishment for the Houston Astros players was public humiliation?
With the NFL Scouting Combine getting underway, rumours concerning teams looking to trade up or down ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft are gaining traction.
All eyes are now on the playoffs. Who will make it? Which teams will get home court advantage?
One of the most exciting, and unpredictable, elements of the NFL draft is when a franchise comes out of nowhere with a trade of draft picks in order to move up and grab a player they see as a game changer for their organisation. At the same time, other franchises see this as an opportunity to collect extra tickets in the draft lottery by moving down.
Just shy of two months until the playoffs begin and the Milwaukee Bucks have already earned themselves a spot.
Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum has ascended to NBA superstardom. The Celtics' NBA title chances depend on Tatum being the player he's been over the last month.
Prospects Isan Diaz and Jordan Yamamoto provide a spark both on the mound and with the bat. The rebuild seems to be working.
2019 was a bad year for the Boston Red Sox and it got progressively worse as it went on. A year after storming to a World Series title in one of the greatest seasons in franchise history, they dropped from 108 wins to a mediocre 84 and missed the playoffs altogether.
The Pittsburgh Pirates aren't an exciting team to preview ahead of the 2020 season. They lost 93 games in 2019 and while PECOTA predicts them to pick up an extra W in 2020, the outlook is pretty bleak.
