Best MLB Games of the Month: May 2016

May 2016 – May means spring, and spring means baseball. And flowers and stuff.

What were the best MLB games of the month of May in the 2016 season? And can you go back and watch these games without having the ending spoiled?

The answer to both is – YES! Here at Baseball Rewatch, the goal is to be the ultimate resource for watching excellend baseball for the true MLB fan. Note: you’ll need a subscription to MLB.tv (or some other way to watch games online and/or on demand – currently MLB.tv is far and away the best source for this).

Keep following our site for daily updates (with no details revealed) on the best games of each day as the regular season progresses. But for now, in the offseason, the best way to get your MLB fix is to come here and find some quality baseball to watch. Here, we’re looking at May 2016 and finding the best game from each day of the month.

Great Games, No Spoilers

Below we’ll list our opinion of the best game(s) from each day in the month of May for the 2016 MLB season. How do we decide? Well, we look over baseball stat and news sites for highlights¬†and special achievements, and anything out of the ordinary we will include. Then we look at the game itself – does it feature excellent pitching on both sides? Does the lead switch back and forth? Is there a wild comeback? Walkoff win? A sixteen strikeout or three-home run performance? These types of factors merit inclusion.

What you won’t find – other than any spoilers – is any boring blowout games. Expect to be entertained with fun, interesting, unusual, or simply excellent baseball games from the 2016 MLB season.
