Friday is trade deadline day. Saturday marks the first day of August. In the world of Major League Baseball, both are important on the annual calendar, meaning this weekend is a pivotal one in the sport. For the contenders who’ve made moves to acquire more talent, it’s go time for the last two months. For those who made themselves sellers, it’s time to develop young players while relegated to the role of spoiler. Of course, both types of teams will be in action over the next few days. Read on as we take a look at the action featuring teams with something still to play for, plus reveal some of the Top StatFox Power Trends available on the weekend schedule.

The National League features two premiere matchups on the schedule this weekend. In the first one, the suddenly hot Cubs will be hitting the road to take on Florida. Chicago comes off a 6-1 homestand that extended an overall recent surge of 13-4. That run has enabled the Cubbies to climb back into a tight battle with St. Louis atop the Central Division. Chicago has taken six of the last eight between these two teams after struggling prior. The Marlins have recovered from a disastrous 3-game home sweep at the hands of the Phillies a couple of weeks ago to get back in the wildcard hunt, just behind San Francisco. A couple of key trends will be tested in this series, since Florida is just 8-14 vs. N.L. Central clubs while Chicago has endured a season of struggles on the road, just 21-27 for -8.3 units.

The other key senior circuit series offers a potential divisional series preview, as the Phillies and Giants continue a 4-game set from San Francisco. It should be a great series for fans of dominant young starting pitchers, as both teams boast great rotations. In fact, the wildcard-leading Giants allow just 3.7 runs per game, nearly a half run better than anyone else in baseball. The Phillies meanwhile, don’t boast those kinds of numbers, but they just recently enhanced their rotation, and chances for a second straight pennant, by adding former Indians’ ace Cliff Lee to the fold. This also figures to be a great matchup since again, something will have to give. The Giants are the league’s best home team, while Philadelphia is the premiere road team in baseball.

In the American League, the tightest race is in the Central Division, where Detroit, Minnesota, and Chicago are separated by just three games. The Tigers lead the fray but will be the only team on the road this weekend. Does that give them a disadvantage? Perhaps not when you consider that they will be taking on Cleveland, who despite playing better of late, has been one of the most active sellers in the trade market. The Indians are clearly building for the future. Meanwhile, the Twins will be hosting the West-leading Angels, and the White Sox are taking on the East-leading Yankees. Both of those road teams are red-hot, so it could be said that Detroit actually does hold the scheduling edge over its closest competitors this weekend.

Another eye-catching series in the junior circuit pits Seattle at Texas. The Rangers continue to beat most experts’ preseason predictions by playing good solid baseball all-around. They have gotten far more production out of their starting pitching staff than ever expected, but are also hitting the ball in Ranger-like fashion. They are right on the heels of the Red Sox for the A.L. Wildcard spot and will look to continue an impressive stretch against divisional foes. Texas was 18-8 versus A.L. West clubs going into Thursday’s series opener.
