The days continue to pass and the MLB calendar keeps its best shape, with many teams trying to prove that they are already at the best level of play possible, others with the hopes of getting out of a bad moment, while few are comfortable at the top of their respective divisions, thanks to the excellent start of the season they have had.
As has been common in recent weeks, we begin by talking about the team that has maintained a devastating pace of play, the NY Yankees, who continue to lead the AL East division with an incredible 53-20 record. According to expert projections, if they continue at this pace, the Yankees could win more than 120 games in the season, a feat that very few teams have achieved.
We also have to point out and highlight the awakening of the Boston Red Sox who, after being in fourth place in the division led by the Yankees, have managed to reverse the situation and are now in a very good momentum with a record of 8-2 in their last 10 games.
On the other hand, we have the Houston Astros who continue to lead the AL West division, the Mets do not take their foot off the gas in the NL East division, while the Brewers and Dodgers continue to fight with their rivals for first place in their divisions.
We can’t pass up one of the most emotional moments we could have experienced in a long time in the best baseball in the world. Freddie Freeman’s return to Atlanta, now as a Dodgers player, where he was presented with last season’s championship ring and was received by the public as what he has always been, an excellent player and an excellent human being.
Now, this Monday begins different series that we are sure will be very electrifying and that will be full of emotions in each of the games

June 27 MLB Game: New York Yankees (-305) vs. Oakland Athletics (+245)
A series that promises to give us many emotions is, without a doubt, this one between NY Yankees and Oakland Athletics, which will start today Monday, June 27, 2022, and will be running for 3 days at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees want to continue in the same line they have had all season, with a great level of play, spectacular pitching, and a powerful and, above all, timely batting. The Yankees come from splitting their previous series against the Houston Astros but were victims of a no-hitter by the Astros in Saturday’s game.
However, the Yankees knew how to bounce back and were able to close the week with a very good win with a score of 6-3 against Houston.
For this first game of the series against Oakland, the Yankees announced Jordan Montgomery as the starting pitcher, the 29-year-old left-hander who is coming for his 15th start of the season and is looking for his fourth win of the year.
Oakland, on the other hand, is in an extremely delicate situation at this point in the season. As many pundits will say, this is not surprising, as it has been the norm for Oakland in recent seasons. Right now, they are in last place in the AL West division, with a very poor record of 25 wins and 49 losses.
The most incredible thing about this season for Oakland is the record they have playing at home, 8 wins and 28 losses, something very rare in any sports team.
For this game, Oakland announced starting pitcher Paul Blackburn, one of the pitchers who have managed to do better so far this season, as he has a 6-3 record and a 2.97 ERA.

June 27 MLB Game: Boston Red Sox (+155) vs. Toronto Blue Jays (-185)
One of the best and most electrifying series that we are going to live this week is this one between Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays, which will begin this Monday, June 27, 2022, and will extend for 3 days at the Rogers Centre, home of the Blue Jays.
In addition to being a duel between two teams that know each other perfectly, it will be a series that will be involved in many strategies, since they are fighting directly for second place in the AL East division.
Boston Red Sox is one of the teams that arrives in better shape for this new week of the MLB calendar. They have an 8-2 record in their last 10 games and, thanks to this, they have managed to climb to second place in the standings.
Boston is coming off a spectacular week, where they managed to win both series they played, the first against Detroit Tigers and the second against Cleveland Guardians. The latter with much more merit, since the series was played in Cleveland.
The Red Sox have announced for this game one of their best pitchers, Michael Wacha, who has a 6-1 record and 2.34 ERA.
On the other hand, the Toronto Blue Jays had managed to stay in second place in the AL East division thanks to their consistency and a good level of play, but, in the last 10 days, this has changed, since, in this period they have a 3-7 record. We also have to point out that the Blue Jays have had to face two very powerful teams like Yankees and Brewers in these 10 days, as well as visiting the White Sox in Chicago.
The Blue Jays will have Ross Stripling on the mound, the 32-year-old veteran and #48 in his jersey, and will start his 10th game of the season looking to add his 5th victory and help Toronto to get out of the bad moment they are in right now.
Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays Betting Pick: Toronto Blue Jays
June 27 MLB Game: Minnesota Twins (-135) vs. Cleveland Guardians (+115)
A very even series is what we will have when the Minnesota Twins visit the Cleveland Guardians starting this Monday, June 27, 2022, in what will be 3 days where 5 games will be played, that is to say, they will play two games in the same day on two occasions. So, in addition to being evenly matched and hard-fought, it will be a grueling series.
The Twins continue to live the dream season they had planned in recent years, right now they are leading the AL Central division with a very good record of 41 wins and 33 losses. Precisely, their closest pursuer is the Cleveland Guardians just 2 games away, so this series will be defining.
Minnesota comes into this week with a balanced record of 5-5 in their last 10 games and hopes to continue in the same tone to remain at the top of their division.
On the other hand, the Cleveland Guardians are also having a very good season and with several games less played than the Twins they are only 2 games behind them, so, all bets are off for the Guardians to fight for first place in the division.
The Guardians come into this series after being crushed last weekend by the Boston Red Sox playing at home, so they are eager to get revenge, and facing their direct rivals is the best option.
For this game, the Twins announced Sonny Gray as their starting pitcher, who has a 3-1 record and 2.53 ERA. While Cleveland will have rookie Triston McKenzie on the mound, who has a 4-5 record and 3.51 ERA.
Minnesota Twins vs. Cleveland Guardians Betting Pick: Minnesota Twins
June 27 MLB Game: Los Angeles Dodgers (-210) vs. Colorado Rockies (+175)
Finally, we will have another very good series between LA Dodgers and Colorado Rockies, which will also start this Monday, June 27, 2022, and will last until Wednesday 29, and will be played at Coors Field, home of the Rockies.
In this game, we will have two opposite sides of a coin, the Dodgers leading the NL West division with a very good record of 45 wins and 26 losses. While the Rockies with a record of 31 wins and 42 losses are in the last place in this same division.
The Dodgers come into this game with a 7-3 record in their last 10 games, ratifying that they are still one of the best teams in the National League and that they want to reach the World Series again.
For this game, the Dodgers will have on the mound one of their best pitchers, Tyler Anderson, who has a perfect record of 8 wins and 0 losses and a 3.00 ERA.
On the other hand, the Rockies are trying to get out of the bad moment they have been experiencing since the season began. Their performance has not been good, especially in their away games, where they have shown their real shortcomings.
For this game, the Rockies will have Chad Kuhl on the mound, who will be making his 14th start of the season in search of his 5th win.
