Early MLB playoff predictions

MLB playoff-clinching season is here. The Los Angeles Angels snagged a playoff spot Monday and later locked up the AL West. The Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals cemented their respective division titles Tuesday. Meanwhile, it appears the wild-card races are the most competitive, with each league seemingly embroiled in a three-way scrape for two spots. How will it all play out?

Trout MVP in Jeter's final ASG

Beloved New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter helped the American League to a 5-3 All-Star Game win Tuesday night, going 2-for-2 with a double and a run in his final Midsummer Classic. MVP honors, however, went to the almost-undisputed best player in baseball, Mike Trout; the Los Angeles Angels outfielder went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and two RBIs -- including the game-winner. St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright, meanwhile, stirred some controversy by saying he intentionally took it easy on Jeter (he later walked back a bit on his comments). Did Jeter get snubbed? Do you have a problem with Wainwright?

Albert Pujols smacked two home runs Tuesday night, making him the 26th player in MLB history to reach the 500 home run mark. Over to you, baseball history buffs: Can you name the other 25? Some are obvious, but several -- unless you've got your MLB milestones memorized -- are tricky.

More: Will Pujols get to 600?
