At the end of May we start to see some teams and players separate themselves from the pack. Division races start to take shape, fans start thinking about All-Star selections, and early MVP candidates are making their cases.
But the game of baseball itself is timeless. Each day, teams play. Some games are run-of-the-mill, while others are tense and exciting. Still other games provide interest in other ways – a rare feat, a future All-Star’s debut, a milestone, a quirky headline. You never know what you might get.
That’s why we showcase the best baseball game of each day of the MLB season, spoiler-free. Click the link below to watch each game on MLB.tv (you’ll need a subscription). We don’t give away and scores or highlights, so you won’t know why a particular game was chosen (or who wins) until you actually watch the game.
After each game you’ll see a number, which is our Game Rank statistic. We plug in things like lead changes, pitching game score, number of home runs, highlight-reel defensive plays, and much more to evaluate how entertaining each game is. The higher the Game Rank score, the more interesting the game.
This is how you can watch the best baseball games year-round, even in the offseason. Enjoy!
