The post has been fronted, or the cutter bumped off course, or the screen jumped and the slip covered, or maybe whatever the hell happened here, unmercifully, is happening again. NBA offenses get clogged up for lots of reasons, and when the shot clock is winding down, someone's left holding the bag. Usually, that means putting up a bad shot. But not always.

    In a very Barry Bonds-esque performance at Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday, Ryan Braun was booed and then booed some more. His response? Three home runs. In the video below, Philadelphia Phillies fans can be heard calling him a cheater from the stands, unwilling to forgive or forget his purchase of PEDs from Biogenesis, denial of said purchase, and the slap on the wrist that followed.

He struck out six and walked one, leaving the Rays hitless in 10 at-bats with runners in scoring position during his season debut. Darvish got right down to business, accomplishing his 500th career strikeout by fanning David DeJesus and Wil Myers in the first inning. In fact, the 401.2…

    Two recent events prove the San Francisco 49ers will fail to stand on the stage in Super Bowl XLVIIII at the University of Phoenix in Arizona in 2015.  The Seattle Seahawks will most likely win the division again, although the 49ers have a team which possesses more talent overall.

    The shorthand answer is “absolutely nothing”. The media’s gross mishandling of the “bias” coverage of the New York Giants’ Eli Manning dates back to his controversial decision to opt out of San Diego.

There are only three active quarterbacks in the NFL today that have multiple Super Bowl rings and Eli is one of them.…

    General Philosophy has always been intriguing, partly because it can be all-encompassing, and why barter principles when you can staunchly assert an all-around belief?  However, an overview is not necessarily a lazy ticket out of hard issues; in fact it can create an umbrella from which to branch.  Invariably, as the seasons of the NFL tick on and outsiders such as Mark Cuban sell the league’s demotion through over-promotion, health concerns become more of a background din (namely concussions), but ultimately some doping or mistaken or deliberate substance abuse will ring out…

Freeman had his rockiest professional season in 2013, something the Giants know quite well.

    The Sun Belt's exposure apparently wasn't good enough for the Dukes to jump up a division. While more FCS schools will likely jump to FBS at some point (maybe including JMU, if Conference USA comes calling), have they learned to be more careful about it? Usually, you would think a smaller school would jump at the opportunity to to join the NCAA's highest division.

There's a good chance you might show up for the fight, and see a playoff series break out. There's no love lost between the Rangers and Flyers, despite the fact that they haven't played each other in the postseason since 1997. When the NHL changed the postseason format this season to promote rivalries, this is the kind of matchup it had in mind. But the Flyers haven't won at Madison Square Garden since 2011, and the Rangers set a franchise record with 25 road wins this season.

    1. Lack of consistency Despite being good enough to make the playoffs, they haven’t shown the consistency that’s needed to make a deep run in the postseason. Think about it: what have even their longest winning streaks this year been bookended by? Losing. Losing on both sides. That’s just a fact. The only thing consistent about this team is its lack of consistency. 2. Defensive lapses They’re maddening. And they’re prevalent. Think of all the times it looked like they were completely flat-footed while the opponent scored. That’s a recipe for playoff…

Essentially, as the air’s sucked out of the chamber, the air inside the Peep expands to fill the space in question,…

    Steve Nash knows a thing or two about playing the point guard position. According to's Mike Trudell, the two-time MVP recently offered his opinion on the best ever to play it.  "I think Magic Johnson has to be the greatest point guard. My favorite was Isiah Thomas, because I knew I was never going to be Magic, so I always tried to emulate Isiah," he said. Nash is much closer to Thomas in size, so his admission that he "was never going to be Magic" likely has something to do with their significant difference in stature.

Walden was designated yesterday, and presumably hit the waiver wire immediately. Walden, 25, has worked mostly as a starter in the minors, but had been throwing in relief at Triple-A to start the 2014 campaign. At Double-A last year, he worked to a 3.71 ERA in 162 1/3 innings, with 4.9 K/9 against 2.8 BB/9.  Toronto paid the cost of losing Walden's rights after some odd roster maneuvering.

Vince Young was an amazing college quarterback, but his game just didn’t translate at the pro level. This year the Texans again have the first pick in the NFL Draft. They could choose quarterback Blake Bortles, offensive lineman Greg Robinson or the speedy Sammy Watkins. I think they would be best served going with defensive lineman in this draft by selecting Jadeveon Clowney out of South Carolina. Williams is…

Our own journalistic bloodhound Kyle Rowland joins us to give us his take, both on the Spring Game and the entire spring practice period in general. Kyle is all over Ohio State sports, so you won't want to miss his thoughts on the offensive line,…

    The dominating spring continues for Ohio State's non-revenue sports. While the spring game stole most of the headlines this weekend, several Buckeye teams have quietly emerged as the best in the nation. This week we'll be taking a look at the men's tennis team's ever-increasing winning streak, the continued dominance of the women's rowing team and the best finish in nearly a decade by the men's gymnastics team. We'll also introduce you to a freshman who is already one of the most decorated athletes in school history after taking home four All-America awards this weekend. Tennis The men's…

Penn State, Louisville, Missouri, Syracuse, Rutgers and West Virginia are also on Thompson's radar, Eleven Warriors has learned.

    I should start by introducing myself as a stakeholder, enthusiast - and most importantly - a donor - just so we get off on the right foot. People generally don't read anymore, so holding your attention is critical: I give you money. South of Wexner but north of Hoke; formally and informally. It feels good. I've transferred chunks of my income from my bank account to yours ever since a W-2 has bared my name. I hold favorable if not overtly biased positions on both the university and my home state, sharing them on a weekly basis in this space going back well into the prior century. My alumni…

  • Auburn Football: 5 Burning Questions for the Tigers' Spring Game

    16 Apr 2014 | 12:28 pm
    After a magical 2013 campaign, Auburn is looking to compete for another national championship.   Head coach Gus Malzahn won’t sneak up on anyone this season in the SEC and the Tigers will most likely get everyone’s best shot.   Personally, I believe that Malzahn is one of the best coaches in the country and will soon bring multiple national championships to Auburn. As long as the Tigers can continue to feature a playmaker at quarterback, Auburn should be considered a contender each year in the SEC.   But for now, Malzahn is looking to build off last season and…

But, with the new alignment this year, we'll be seeing things like that. New rivalries will be born, some old ones will fade, and some will be intensified. It's a new era!

  • Texas A&M Football: Could Former Aggies QB Matt Joekel Transfer to SMU?

    Texas A&M Aggies rising senior quarterback Matt Joeckel – brother of the No. 2 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Luke – announced Wednesday afternoon that he will transfer for his final season of eligibility. This leaves the indefinitely suspended sophomore Kenny Hill or highly-touted true freshman Kyle Allen as the man that will replace Johnny Manziel under center. "I have loved my four and a half years at Texas A&M," Joeckel said, according to the school’s official athletic website. "I am glad I had the opportunity to play for coach Sumlin, coach…
  • USC Football: 3 Burning Questions for the Trojans' Spring Game

    16 Apr 2014 | 10:28 am
    The USC Trojans have the tools to be great this season. Whether that greatness comes to fruition will come down to how well the Trojans use those tools, and how well the numbers and words on paper translate to the playing field. The team’s spring game this Saturday, April 19 will be the first real chance to test all of that. 1. When Will the Quarterback Competition End? Head coach Steve Sarkisian has indicated he will make the decision before the end of spring practices, according to the Los Angeles Times. The Trojans would be wise to pick a starting quarterback soon because it will…
  • College Football: There Will Be Record 40 Bowl Games in 2015

    16 Apr 2014 | 9:58 am
    One of the biggest arguments against a playoff system in college football was that it would destroy the bowls that have been such an exciting part of NCAA football for decades. Next year, we'll see the first four-team playoff ever in major college football. Yet somehow, it hasn't managed to destroy the bowl system at all. Au contraire, folks, it has actually helped, if anything. In 2015, there will be a record 40 bowl games, after the addition of The Cure Bowl in Orlando, which will feature teams from the AAC and Sun Belt conferences. There were only 28 bowl games in 2004-05, so that…

They also have special features about who has the best ring entrances, best moves, the worst gimmick and so on. They also have a half hour show live before and after Monday Night Raw. Also all the WWE pay-per views for the next 6 months are included. Just for that alone is the reason I got it. It…

  • Storm coach Brian Agler talks rookies; Tianna Hawkins responds to being traded

    15 Apr 2014 | 11:37 am
    Storm coach Brian Agler sounded defensive when I suggested he plays more to win now and doesn't prefer true rookies on his WNBA team. It's what the facts show when looking at his history since being hired in 2008. Only one draft pick remains after Agler, who's also the team's general manager, traded F Tianna Hawkins and PG Bria Hartley to Washington for All-Star F Crystal Langhorne on Monday. Hawkins was the sixth overall pick to Seattle last April while Hartley was the seventh overall pick this year. In past years, Agler has made trades or cut rookies who've since found success elsewhere in…

UNCASVILLE, Conn. – The Connecticut Sun went 10-24 in 2013. It was a miserable season for a team with no chemistry. It was obvious that change needed to come, and not just by trading Kara Lawson and adding Katie Douglas.

        (Photo by Wilf Thorne) The Houston Dash made a point Saturday night, though not one reflected in the league standings. Houston Mayor Annise Parker and NWSL Commissioner Cheryl Bailey were on hand to add an air of significance to the event and offer well-wishes in advance of the side’s maiden voyage. Aside from Allie Long’s opportunistic first half goal, one would be excused for failing to pick out the reigning champions from the expansion outfit.   Just 121 days earlier, the Dash celebrated its first birthday.

After a weekend that ended with Carlos Beltran playing first base, and almost put Dean Anna behind the dish, there is no room left for denial that the Yankees need infield help now. The Yankees dodged a bullet this weekend against the Red Sox, but this infield is way too nicked up to put the 2014 season at risk after spending like nobody’s business during the off-season.

TRUST Last season, the playoff-less Yankees went 6-13 against the now reining World Champion Red Sox; and the embarrassment is still fresh in New York. The 2013 Yankees lost the fan base’s faith, and winning is the only thing that can repair that.

Bob Bowman, the swimmer’s longtime coach, told The Associated Press on Monday that Phelps is entered in three events — the 50- and 100-meter freestyles and the 100 butterfly. “I think he’s just going to test the waters a little bit and see how it goes,” Bowman said by phone from Baltimore. “I wouldn’t say it’s a…

    New Delhi: Renowned adventurer and explorer Mike Horn shared his life experiences with the Kolkata Knight Riders as part of their build-up for the upcoming Indian Premier League and said the team is capable of creating magic this season. “I find working with KKR really relaxing. The surrounding is much more relaxed than the other teams I’ve worked with before. I think the coach understands the players and he’s got confidence in the players,” Horn, who has earlier worked with the Indian cricket team and the South African side, said after a meeting with the KKR players.

    Liverpool have taken a huge stride towards the Premier League title with an enthralling 3-2 home win against Manchester City on Sunday. Liverpool’s 10th straight league victory carried them to 77 points, five points ahead of Chelsea. The Reds are also seven points ahead of City who have two games in hand on the Merseyside team. Liverpool now has four games to play, and if they win them all, they will claim their first top-flight title in 24 years. Coach-cum manager Brendon Rodgers described it as an incredible and remarkable performance, and added that the team has both spirit and…

The guards remained firmly in place during anesthesia and the hard, thin surface turned out to be extremely resistant to stress and forces.

    Stephen Drew, Adam Jones (Photo credit: Keith Allison) The time has come for the New York Yankees to pick-up the phone, and call agent Scott Boras about Stephen Drew. After a weekend that ended with Carlos Beltran playing first base, and almost put Dean Anna behind the dish, there is no room left for denial that the Yankees need infield help now. The Yankees dodged a bullet this weekend against the Red Sox, but this infield is way too nicked up to put the 2014 season at risk after spending like nobody’s business during the off-season. After 13 games the infield injuries to Derek Jeter, Mark…

This past weekend the Yankees took three of four from the Boston Red Sox, which leaves them sitting with a 7-6 record, and top of the AL East with the Rays. The calendar might prove it is too early into the 2014 season to be concerned, but speaking as a Yankees fan it doesn’t feel like it. Is 13 games even enough time for the shoe to start to dropping?

TRUST Last season, the playoff-less Yankees went 6-13 against the now reining World Champion Red Sox; and the embarrassment is still fresh in New York. The 2013 Yankees lost the fan base’s faith, and winning is the only thing that can repair that. Remember, the Big Apple is also home to the Mets, so Yankees fans have saw them collapse firsthand, which only made their leash of loyalty shorter. And when has beating the Champs ever been…

Surprise, surprise everyone from ESPN’s Baseball Tonight to the NY Daily News is focusing on the brown, gooey substance located on the inside part of Pineda’s right wrist and not the game of baseball that was played between one of oldest rivalry’s in sports.

    14 Apr 2014 | 2:39 pm
    The Atlanta Braves own the Washington Nationals and it was never more apparent than this past weekend in Atlanta with the Braves sweeping the Nats. Since the start of the 2013 season the Braves have won 18 of the last 25 head-to-head meetings between the two N.L. East rivals. This rivalry is starting to feel like the Cowboys and Redskins with the Braves always seeming to get that lucky bounce or close call to fall their way. The 2014 season has just started and we’ve got a lot of baseball left to play, but one thing has been made crystal clear, the Nats must find a way to get things…
  • Orioles Improve Depth with Trade for Lombardozzi

    24 Mar 2014 | 10:39 pm
    Steve Lombardozzi The Baltimore Orioles made a very good trade by acquiring Steve Lombardozzi from the Detroit Tigers for veteran Alex Gonzalez. This is a huge move for the Orioles because Lombo’s a very solid player that can play almost any position on the field and plays the game the right way. This kid will become a fan favorite very quickly in Baltimore. This is a steal of a deal for the Orioles front office in my opinion because they gave up essentially nothing to dramatically upgrade their bench. Gonzalez is a 37 year old player that really had no future with the Orioles once…

It’s nice to see the salary cap handcuffs taken off the Washington Redskins after a two-year penalty imposed by the league office. Now I’m hearing the team linked to many of the big name players on the market, but that was always the case before the team was exiled unjustly by the a-holes in New York. Most of those rumors are nothing more than B.$. being floated by agents trying to drive up the price tag of signing their clients.

  • Bringing Brian Orakpo Back Was a Smart Move by the Redskins

    4 Mar 2014 | 10:22 am
    Brian Orakpo The Washington Redskins did the right thing by using the franchise tag on LB Brian Orakpo in my opinion. I admit to being against the team bringing him back on a huge multi-year deal because I don’t think he’s produced enough and has been injury prone. But after hearing that defensive coordinator Jim Haslett plans on letting Orakpo pin his ears back and rush the passer more I think using the franchise tag on him was the right thing to do. This is nothing more than a one-year deal and it’s worth the gamble. I know the team says they’re working on a…

Number 4 starter Mark Portugal continued the mound domination, going 6 1/3 innings of shutout ball in a 4-1 win. Brian Daubach doubled in his first Sox at bat, then tripled in a pair in the third. Jose Offerman continued his great start with two more safeties, but the story was Portugal, an injury-plagued 37-year-old that the Sox took a shot on to deepen their rotation. Manager Jimy…

    31 Mar 2014 | 5:40 am
    Navaneeth When T20 was introduced critics were harsh on shorter format of the game claiming it will kill the basics of the game and they have told it will kill the evolution of good spinners. So many suggested all the test batsmen won’t suit to this format and hell lot of things but after all this time people’s opinions should have changed. Spin bowling turned out to be the x-factor for all successful teams who conceded runs at a lesser economy rate than most of the fast bowlers. Who would have thought Ajmal and Narine would be so successful that batsmen would like to play them off for 5…
  • Can Cycling Reduce your Calorie Count?

    Richard Murray

    Cycling is one of the best ways of getting exercise. It’s a fantastic way to boost cardiovascular fitness, increase endurance, and strengthen and tone your leg muscles. This is all great, and it’s stuff that benefits you all year round. I’m writing this just after Christmas though, so I have a slightly different priority right now – fighting the effects of all that seasonal excess. It’s pretty hard to watch what you eat at this time of year, so if you want to avoid starting 2014 a bit bigger than you were in 2013 the best solution is to get out there and burn off some calories.

However, after a ruling from the Advertising Standard Agency (ASA), Nicolites must immediately cease the ad campaign in its current form.   Although the ASA did acknowledge the e-cigarette company had the legal right to sponsor a sports club and to take advantage of that partnership for advertising purposes, they said the ‘kicks butt’ ads were too similar to the ‘kick butt’ stop smoking…

    Twenty-five years ago, the world of football cards changed permanently. You see, for nearly a generation, Topps had been the only company licensed to produce football cards with Fleer relegated to action shots and a few regional issues. However, as had occurred with baseball cards at the beginning of the decade, 1989 would be as big as a sea change in football as 1981 was in baseball. First we’ll start with the 1988 Topps football set, or a better way of saying, the last of the old-school sets.

    “To be perfectly frank, the notion of using a union-employee model to address the challenges that do exist in intercollegiate athletics is something that strikes most people as a grossly inappropriate solution to the problem” “To convert to a unionized employee model is essentially to throw away the entire collegiate model for athletics. You can’t split that in two. You’re either a student playing sports or you’re an employee of a university. It would blow up everything about the collegiate model of athletics.” — NCAA President Mark Emmert  Change to college athletics is…
  • Utah Jazz: The NBA Draft Lottery Odds

    John English
    14 Apr 2014 | 9:05 pm
    Right now the Jazz are in fourth place in the NBA Draft order.  Jazz will recall the 2004-2005 season where the Jazz also landed in fourth, and they had a 17.2% chance of sliding to sixth or worse, and they did. Fortunately they were able to con Portland into trading down so they could get Deron Williams. In fourth place, they have a 37.8% shot at moving up, and an additional 9.9% of staying put. Which means it’s slightly more likely they wind up at fifth or worse if they manage to keep their current position in tank rankings. They’re not going to catch the Bucks or Sixers so…
  • Late Goals – A Life Lesson

    Jeremy Stensrud
    14 Apr 2014 | 7:54 am
    RSL gave up a late goal and two points in their game against the Philadelphia Union on Saturday. RSL also gave up a late goal in San Jose on March 15th that turned three points into one. Had RSL won both games, they would currently be in first place with fourteen points. As RSL fans, I don’t think we have much to complain about so far, but as I read Twitter and listen to the radio, I see fans who apparently have found plenty to complain about. Most of these complaints are based on warped perception and a penchant to ask what could’ve been. Yes, these draws against Philadelphia and San…

While the story for some football fans may seem like a stretch, you do find yourself cheering for Costner’s character to pull off a miracle and make everyone happy in the end. Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner) is the general manager for the Cleveland browns who need’s too, as his owner says, “make a splash” in this years draft or he might be out of a job. So Sonny does just that. He takes the Brown’s seventh overall pick and trades up to…

    Keeping the Bucks in Milwaukee was a major component of the sale of the team and deal includes a significant portion of the funding for a new arena. Herb Kohl agreed to sell the Bucks to a new ownership group but was diligent in ensuring the team stays in Milwaukee. Not only did the owner of 29 years make keeping the team in the city a condition of the sale agreement, he's also contributing $100 million towards a new arena. The new ownership duo of Marc Lasry and Wesley Edens also agreed to contribute at least $100 million, according to a release from the team. It's extremely rare for a…

  • What Josh Freeman's signing says about Eli Manning, Ryan Nassib and the Giants

    Freeman is now with the Giants. Is he simply another warm body, or is there real worry in New York that Eli is in decline? Josh Freeman joined the New York Giants on Wednesday, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal that will allow him to earn a spot on the roster as a backup quarterback. Freeman had his rockiest professional season in 2013, something the Giants know quite well. He started one game after being traded to the Minnesota Vikings, incidentally against the Giants on a Monday night, and went 20 for 52 passing for 190 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.

  • JMU reportedly picks FCS over Sun Belt: Mad FCS-to-FBS rush over?

    Kevin Trahan
    16 Apr 2014 | 1:09 pm
    The Sun Belt's exposure apparently wasn't good enough for the Dukes to jump up a division. While more FCS schools will likely jump to FBS at some point (maybe including JMU, if Conference USA comes calling), have they learned to be more careful about it? Usually, you would think a smaller school would jump at the opportunity to to join the NCAA's highest division. But when the Sun Belt of the FBS came calling for FCS James Madison, the Dukes appear to have turned down the chance to become the 130th (counting Charlotte in 2015) FBS school.

    It's been 17 years since the Rangers and Flyers have played in the playoffs, but that will all change come Thursday. There's a good chance you might show up for the fight, and see a playoff series break out. There's no love lost between the Rangers and Flyers, despite the fact that they haven't played each other in the postseason since 1997. When the NHL changed the postseason format this season to promote rivalries, this is the kind of matchup it had in mind. But the Flyers haven't won at Madison Square Garden since 2011, and the Rangers set a franchise record with 25 road wins this season.

    This is a fantastic warm up and agility drill that we like to do to get the eyes and hands ready to go. This agility drill allows players to work on both agility and catching the football. Breaking Down the Popcorn Agility Drill In this agility drill, the coach is going to throw the player as many balls as he can while they are moving laterally. Your focus is on working lateral movement, and not clicking the feet. Be sure to keep the head and eyes up. The player shouldn’t cross over, and they should stay right on the line the entire time.

How To Make Proper Contact with the Football Defender When you are engaging the football defender, you want to make sure you have a good, strong base.

In this drill, we use four cones to create holes, and the tackler doesn’t know where he is going. He is working on his ability to just “react” and adjust on the move. Note: Without shoulder pads, you want to run this drill at half speed.  With shoulder pads, you can run this drill live at full speed.   Breaking Down the Linebacker Hole Tackling Drill Set up four cones, and the tackler will have a choice to run between any of the three…

Gilbert ranks among the top cornerbacks in this year’s draft. He is not likely to fall down to the Saints’ pick at No. 27 overall, but if coach Sean Payton and GM Mickey Loomis see something special in the kid, New Orleans could very well trade up and acquire him.

After hitting .296 with nine home runs in a career-high 86 games in 2013, the Red Sox decided to hold onto Carp, who provided solid depth at first base and in the outfield. However, as other players have developed their skill sets since the end of the 2013 season, Carp has become more expendable, leaving him to become a major drawer of attention on the trade market.

    How much success have you passed up by not giving just 1% more? Success is not determined by the opinions of others. There is no ruler that measures success, nor will there ever be, or has there ever been. Success is not determined by how hard you think you have worked, how early you rise, or how late you retire. Success is not purchased, it is not negotiated, it is not given to you, it is not taught, and it is not inherited. The dictionary defines success as the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors but even that is not success. Failure is not the race that is lost,…

  • NWSL: Washington’s Spirit Deflates After 3-1 Loss to WNY Flash

    Capricia Alston
    16 Apr 2014 | 6:24 am
    The Washington Spirit appeared to have run out of just what their moniker suggests after their 3-1 loss to the Western New York Flash during Sunday’s home opener. Despite the Flash’s physical dominance throughout the match, the first half was evenly battled. Both teams had only one shot on goal, but WNY’s Vicky Losada — who had two goals and an assist this match — was able to capitalize on her opportunity, making the score 1-0 15 minutes into the match. Losada’s first goal came from a shot about 30 yards out which caught former Flash goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris off of her line.

    So far, the 2014 Washington Spirit is nothing like its 2013 team. From the players and their chemistry, to its undefeated preseason, this team seems to have changed for the better. The real proof will come today as the Spirit faces U.S. National team (USNT)  players Abby Wambach and Carli Lloyd, and the rest of the Western New York Flash (WNY). The Flash are the 2013 NWSL (National Women’s Soccer League) regular-season champions and have the league’s most threatening offense and defense with 36 goals and 20 goals against. While the Flash have had a productive preseason as well…

  • Ohio State Tickets Overpriced For the Spring

    11 Apr 2014 | 4:25 pm
    Ohio State reduced the price of Spring Game tickets today back to $5 a piece, the price they were at for most of the Jim Tressel era. The original price was $12 in advance and $20 at the gate. The weather should be decent tomorrow but the enthusiasm to fill the stadium might not be a fever pitch with fans after a little bit a let down by the team to end 2013. Parking at the stadium is free and if you did pay the higher price, the difference will be donated to Life Sports and the Boys and Girls Club. Returning a ticket starting the 14th for a full refund is also an option.

Sometimes these can happen when there is an injury, but Dunn was just clearing space for others like now graduated back Carlos Hyde and true freshman Ezekiel Eilliot. Others also saw time including red-shirt freshman Warren Ball and now the most seasoned back at Ohio State, Rod Smith. (Remember when he was looking at playing on the defensive side of the ball.)

  • 95+ MPH Fastball Brings Interest From MLB Scouts

    High School Illustrated
    16 Apr 2014 | 12:46 pm
    Pitcher JB Bukauskas of Stone Bridge High School in Ashburn, Virgina, is throwing some heat! At a recent game, there were more than 20 MLB scouts with radar guns. With every pitch from Bukauskas, the scouts’ radar guns were recording throws of 96, 95, 96 mph. The 17-year-old Bukauskas’ recent performance of a blistering fastball, biting slider and a batter-freezing change-up finished the game with 11 strikeouts for the second time this season. Bukauskas recently signed with North Carolina to play at the next level, but experts are expecting him to be chosen as early as the first…

  • RSI: What Are Repetitive Stress Injuries?

    High School Illustrated
    4 Apr 2014 | 9:30 am
    Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) are injuries that happen when too much stress is placed on a part of the body, resulting in inflammation (pain and swelling), muscle strain, or tissue damage. This stress generally occurs from repeating the same movements over and over again. RSIs are common work-related injuries, often affecting people who spend a lot of time using computer keyboards. While most common in adults, RSIs are becoming more prevalent in teens because they spend more time than ever using computers. Playing sports like tennis that involve repetitive motions can also lead to RSIs.

    On my blog Expressions from the Hardwood I recently posted a series of articles titled “Coaching Strategy – Late Game Situations” that were geared toward college coaches. However, this topic is relevant for youth coaches as well. If you’re unsure, late game situations occur when the last play or minute of the game/half/quarter/match, come down to one possession making a big difference (usually a win or a tie). There are several reasons why youth sports coaches and parents should teach late game situations: 1. It increases sport I.Q. Coaches should put their kids in late game…

    Every year the Masters Golf Tournament represents and displays everything that is great about the sport. The Masters points fans to all of the amazing history, incredible shots, impossible comebacks, and the green jacket that changes a golfer’s life. When I think about the Masters and how it symbolizes tradition, beauty, competition, and golf at its best, another symbol comes to mind – the cross. The cross symbolizes grace, forgiveness, life, and mercy, and points us to Jesus who changes our lives. When I think about the cross, I’m filled with thankfulness and awe. Romans 5:8 says,…

The Bruns have won 15 of their last 16 and posted a 15-1-1 record in the month of March. Just incredible. The defending Eastern Conference Champs are firing on all cylinders and looks poised for another deep playoff run. At #2 this week are the St. Louis Blues.

    Wild on SportsMLB 2014 Team Preview: Colorado RockiesBy Wild on Sports MLB Analyst Aaron Dorman2013 Overview: The year before, the pitching collapsed and the formerly competitive Rockies unit looked like they might need a rebuild. In 2013 they still only win 74 games but things are more promising; they might have won 4-5 if not for month-long injuries to their trio of offensive stars: Michael Cuddyer, Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki. The pitching looks much less terrible, as Joulys Chacin and Jorge de la Rosa lead a rebound performance. Still, the team has plenty of holes.Winter…

Some rookie surprises in the field (Logan Forsythe in 2012, Jedd Gyorko in 2013) and also some complete meltdowns (Nick Hundley in 2012, Cameron Maybin in 2013). Above .500 in the second half of the year. Everth Cabrera only plays a half season; in 2012 it was an injury, in 2013 it was steroids.

Most of their starters regress, Angel Pagan goes missing for most of the year, and nobody comes in to fill the hole left behind by Melky Cabrera, who hit .346 in 2012.

  • 145 days till my first Marathon!

    Paweł Chalacis
    13 Apr 2014 | 9:37 pm
    This was a long season. It started in London, went through Lanzarote and finished in Auckland in the middle of summer in January (or as the rest of the world call it - winter ;)). That’s why after finishing my 70.3 race I decided to take it little easier for couple of weeks. I let my nutrition go crazy, gained few kilograms (thankfully mostly due to weight lifting) and lost a lot of endurance. I was too slow and too tired to have good photos taken :p. Instead - photo of Gomez and Brownlee fighing for 1st place!
  • Trying too hard

    Paweł Chalacis
    12 Feb 2014 | 12:57 pm
    3 weeks ago I started long weight lifting program. I’m not a weight lifter, nor I ever plan becoming one, but I figured that this would be the best approach right now. I don’t plan any big event anytime soon (except ITU Olympic distance Triathlon and some Ocean Swim), so working on my basics seems reasonable. This year is going to be running one, as I want to finish two marathons and couple of shorter runs. So I’ve increased my volume and injured myself at the end of second week of new program.

    I don’t think I’ve ever been more tired than while trying to run last 15 km of last Sunday race. They say ignorance is a bliss, and this time I had no privilege to be a first timer. Well, the plan was simple - don’t mess up swim too much, smash the bike, survive the run and do it all below 5:30. You might say that it’s a low goal, but being a smoking coach potato for many years I found it accurate for a second half Ironman race. Mission accomplished, and I’m now even more hungry for that sport.

    I don’t think that I’ve ever been so focused in my life. When I ended working for my last company I had the most unproductive period of the last year (and yet it definitely was not the most unproductive period of my life… sad but true). Lack of need of getting up early, not knowing how is next week going to look like and general boredom - not the best combination.After I moved to Auckland it took me few weeks to settle down and figure out everything. I’ve found quite good gym, near by swimming pool and good places for open water swimming. But most importantly I’ve found new…

    Ben Larcombe
    15 Apr 2014 | 6:19 am
    Week 11 was another busy week of training. We did plenty of work in the kitchen and also managed to squeeze in a couple of gym sessions and a trip to Morpeth Table Tennis Club. We are well into March now and really starting to feel the pressure of time on our progress. If we are to have any chance of reaching our goal of getting Sam into the top 250 by the end of the year then he needs to have mastered all the basics pretty soon. The following diary is from 10th – 16th March 2014. The video below is our highlights video from the week. Sam has joined me to talk through the action (as…

    On Friday 7th March, during week ten of the challenge, Sam and I headed over to London Moberly Table Tennis Club to meet, head coach, Sherwin Remata and get his opinion on Sam’s development so far. Sherwin is a very competent player and coach. He is a solid top 100 player in England and has many years experience coaching players of all abilities. I told Sherwin roughly where we were up to (mainly working on Sam’s topspin strokes and open-up) and asked him to have a look at everything and try to tweak things as much as possible. I set the tripod and video camera up, got out my…

It’s almost the Easter holidays (which means I get two weeks off from coaching at school), so I should have no excuses for not getting back up to date. Week 10 saw Sam receive an hour of private coaching from Sherwin Remata, a top 100 player in England and head coach at London Moberly TTC. It also included seven hours of our standard sessions too and a couple of trips to the gym. To have a look at the archive…

    Welcome to our (Ben and Sam’s) diary for Week 9 of the Expert in a Year Challenge. This was a pretty standard week with seven coached sessions (all taking place in the kitchen) and a few gym sessions. It really feels like we have got into a stable training routine now and ‘Expert in a Year’ has just become a part of normal life! We bulk of the week was spent working on shots like the topspin loop and the open up (on both forehand and backhand). These a vital strokes for any serious table tennis player to perfect and we are spending a lot of time on these. To check out the…

    Week 8 included loads and loads of table tennis. Probably about 20 hours in total! This was largely due to the fact that we left the kitchen, for the first time in Sam’s training, and traveled up to Swerve TTC in Middlesbrough for a three day intensive camp. If you’d like to find out more about the trip I recommend you read Sam’s Swerve Diary where he records his thoughts and feelings over the three days. Week 8 saw us cover a number of new strokes, most notably the forehand smash and backhand open-up. As always we kick off with the weekly highlights video (below). This week…

  • How to Become a Good Basketball Player

    17 Mar 2014 | 12:22 pm
    It is true that some of basketball players seem to have an innate talent for this type of game: they have the ideal height and the right skills that allow playing basketball apparently without paying too much effort into this. It comes only natural for them to be considered good players out there on the court, but while this happens during high school, when their body is still young and energetic, this talent might easily wear off if not properly educated and trained. This is why many of them fail to reach that level of being good players to be co-opted for colleges' basketball teams. Read…

    4 Feb 2014 | 9:25 am
    A golf swing is the most elegant and powerful stroke used in golf. It is very difficult to master and takes hours of practice. Among recent golf players Tiger Woods is said to have the best swing. Though many have tried to copy his style, nobody has succeeded. The main reason behind it is that after mastering the steps the mind automatically adapts to it according to a person’s nature. Each individual has his/her signature style. But everybody has to follow the basic steps of swinging. Without those, a perfect swing can never be mastered. Read more [...]

  • Freekickerz: Getting the football under control, the first step to hone your skills

    Sporting E
    15 Apr 2014 | 6:14 pm
    The key to any sport – or anything for that matter – is to have full control of what’s happening. Whether the ball is round, flat, oblong – it is every player’s task to make sure that he is controlling the ball. When he can control the ball, he can defend it; he can pass it ideally to his teammate; he can most likely make that shot or that goal. This explains the age-old piece of advice handed down from generation to generation of footballs players: “a good first touch is getting the ball under control.” This is a crucial step toward taking that huge leap from…

    Sporting E
    1 Apr 2014 | 5:26 pm
    Football requires as much skill as any other sport, if not more. As a matter of fact, naming it “football” can be a little bit misleading – it is not only the feet that are involved in playing the sport… the rest of the body is as well. Apart from the feet, players also use their heads, chests, knees, and legs. On the technical standpoint, that’s a lot of body parts to develop skills for. And because these skills aren’t inborn, children should undergo proper training as early as possible if they wish to even have the chance of turning pro someday. It need not be said just how…

If he fails, however, he may be the recipient of another crown - the best fighter in UFC history to have never won a title.This unwanted and unfortunate honour has a few potential candidates, Kenny Florian and Dan Henderson perhaps being the most noteworthy. Faber is slightly unique though, he can't quite win a world title but he is head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. He is the best of the rest.Faber has had 36 professional fights - 30 wins and 6 losses.

Well, not quite.I know Weidman has a world championship belt and functional limbs but he, too, can be considered rather unfortunate following his duels with Silva.Bear with me.Weidman's victories, life changing career-propelling wins, can both conceivably be called flukes.

    The hope of a fan base. (Photo: KT King) As we get into round three of the Mock Draft Game, just two experts have held on to their integrity, and one of them is doing so solely because of laziness. Sporting News/Optimum Scouting’s Eric Galko (Ha Ha Clinton-Dix) and Fox Sports’ Peter Schrager (Darqueze Dennard) have selected the same player for the Lions at all three checkpoints, but Schrager doesn’t really count because he hasn’t had updated his mock draft since February 28.

The Red Wings had 13 points the past 11 games (6-4-1 record), tied for their highest point total in a segment this season. The extra game helped, but one part of their game had a bigger impact.

    The shot was a good one. Low, hard, on target. It just happened to hit a body. Somehow it popped up, arced over the Marc-Andre Fleury’s head, went off the cross bar and one-hopped into the net. Riley Sheahan was the shooter. Tomas Jurco was the man in front. Tomas Tatar sat on the back door, swiping at the puck not once but twice after it had crossed the line, pushing it into the back padding of the goal. When it’s the goal that guarantees you the playoffs, you make sure it’s in. Everything about that goal was an apt description of the Red Wings’ season, from the time…

  • Why earning the No. 7 seed instead of the No. 8 seed will almost double the Red Wings’ chances of advancing in the playoffs

    7 Apr 2014 | 11:03 am
    Thanks to an epic collapse by Toronto, New Jersey and Washington not making a push, and one more game against Buffalo remaining for the Red Wings, Detroit’s the playoff streak will alive for another year. While that’s an accomplishment in itself, especially this season, everybody wants more. If you’re going to make the playoffs you might as well win a few rounds, right? The Red Wings’ ability to do that will have a lot to do with what seed they end up with. With 88 points in 78 games, Detroit sits in the top wildcard spot, five points behind Tampa Bay for the final…

  • Lannan makes Mets debut on Opening Day
    4 Apr 2014 | 1:58 pm
    Once the Opening Day starter for the Washington Nationals, John Lannan now makes his living as the second lefty out of the bullpen for the New York Mets. Lannan, who grew up in Long Beach, N.Y. and attended Chaminade High School, made his debut for the Mets on Monday against his former team. After spending six seasons in Washington, Lannan spent last season in Philadelphia before signing with New York in the off-season. He’s made his way around the NL East. On Monday, he let up a two-run homer, and one walk in less then one inning of work. It will take some time to adjust to his bullpen…

Downey is listed under the Division III nominees from his days at Stony Brook, which formerly competed in Division III before it’s quick rise to the NCAA Subdivision level in recent years. Downey, a safety in college, was a First Team All-America selection in 1987. At the time, he was the first player in Division III history to reach the 1,000-yard mark on punt and kickoff returns in a career. He recorded 239 tackles, 13 interceptions…

    Gigantic Brewing is one of many small breweries in Portland Oregon, but they help set themselves apart with their fantastic labels. I’ve never had any of their beers so I’ll have to take their word on their claim of making “the best damn IPA in Portland.” The label for their Gigantic IPA isn’t bad but I really like their seasonal beer labels. My favorite is their Most Premium Russain Imperial Stout. I can’t explain what Grasshopper Kaiser Wilhelm is all about, and apparently neither can they: Frank Kozik is the artist that created the label and I…

    Perhaps the appropriate thing to do when the Atlanta Braves face the Nats next is somehow require the Braves to wear Marlins hats.  As much as Atlanta has dominated Washington early on, the Nats have done the same to Miami.   After an awful weekend series sweep by the Braves, the Nationals climbed back aboard the winning bus with a 9-2 win last night over the Marlins. Anthony Rendon and Bryce Harper swung the big bat for the Nats to support a fine pitching performance by Jordan Zimmermann.  Rendon went 2 for 5 with a double, triple, and three RBI while Bryce Harper added a 3 for 4 night…

    NOTE: The Miami Heat sat Lebron James and Chris Bosh tonight and played Dwyane Wade less than 19 minutes. THE GAME TURNED WHEN… Washington erupted in the second quarter for 43 points. The Wiz led by only one point to start the second quarter, but sat on a comfortable 22-point cushion at halftime after going for 43 points in the second. Washington hit an amazing 15 of 16 shots from the field in the quarter. This run included three-pointers from Trevor Ariza, Bradley Beal, Al Harrington. In the paint, Nene was dominant, scoring three times on layups, while adding an outside jumper and two…

The Capitals season ended yesterday without a playoff appearance for the first time since the 2006/07 season.  The jobs of General Manage George McPhee and Oates may be in question after a significantly disappointing season.  McPhee has been the General Manager in Washington for seventeen season and has one Eastern Conference final to his credit.  Recently, he has undergone several…

Many have come out in defense of the goalpost dunk saying that the NFL now stands for the no fun league. But why do we need to have a celebration of somebody dunking the ball over the goal post? Why not act like players that have been to the end zone before? The act of dunking the ball is a pure individual showboat in a sport that is team orientated. Eleven guys helped make that play a score and the guy showboating the game needs to…

    Capital one cup glory for Manchester City over Sunderland, calm down about Soldado, Tottenham and Arsenal are missing a spark and Paul Lambert deserves far more credit for his Villa shake-up.Despite the diminishing reputation of domestic cups in recent years, the weekend of finals cannot be matched, and as Manchester City triumphed over gutsy Sunderland 3-1 at Wembley on Sunday, It seems only right to talk about Manchester City, of who normally have a good reputation for winning titles and trophies by making it as hard for themselves as possible, whether that be conceding twice at home…
  • 5 steps to rejuvenating Tottenham

    14 Feb 2014 | 3:48 am
    Ask five Tottenham fans how they think the season is going and you’ll get five different responses, whether they’re optimists and see that we’re only seven points off the title, or they’re pessimistic and see that we’re playing quite poorly and have a very fragile defense. Regardless of their opinion, we all have this small feeling at the back of our heads that the club is so fragile at the moment and they’re not helping themselves. From the StubHub situation, the potential new stadium and the threat of top players leaving the club, Tottenham needs reviving. Here are my five…

  • The Best F*cking Article You’ll Read Today: Profanity in Rap Lyrics Since 1985

    1 Apr 2014 | 8:24 am
    Flashback to the Bronx in 1973. DJ Kool Herc and MC Coke La Rock are busy laying the groundwork for what will become one of the most popular music genres in the world: Hip-Hop. La Rock, the original MC, initially performed his raps out of view of the audience. This peculiar tactic left audiences scratching their heads, curious about the identity of their favorite local performer. It is quite remarkable how much hip-hop has changed since those early days more than 40 years ago. Today, the best MCs are more than just popular – they are pop culture superstars. For them, there is no hiding…
  • NBA Shooting By the Numbers (1980-Today)

    Andrew Powell-Morse
    10 Feb 2014 | 7:31 am
    Professional basketball has been around for quite some time here in the United States. To be exact, the Basketball Association of America was started in 1946, featuring 11 teams. A lot of things have changed since those days. Now, in 2014, we have 30 teams and the rules are a bit different from how they stood during the early days of the league. Most notably, the three point shot came into existence in 1980 and forever changed the way the game of basketball would be played. It is that moment forward that I refer to as the “modern” NBA. In this study, I take a look at team statistics over…
  • Super Bowl XLVIII Winner, As Told By The Mascots

    Super Bowl XLVIII promises to be a game for the ages, but what can history tell us about which of the teams will emerge victorious? We took a different approach to predicting this year’s winner: mascots. We separated all of the NFL mascots into the following classes: **There has been some unrest regarding these classifications, particularly the Browns, Titans and Texans. Here are the actual mascots of those teams: Browns Mascot – Chomps the Dog, Titans Mascot – T-Rac the raccoon, Texans Mascot – Toro the Bull. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused!** Birds: Ravens,…
  • NFL Penalties: The Facts and Figures of Flags

    Andrew Powell-Morse
    17 Dec 2013 | 7:10 am
    In 1999, in a game against the Baltimore Ravens, the Tennessee Titans were penalized 15 times for 212 yards. Most teams would not be able to overcome such a deficit, but the Titans, who would eventually reach the Super Bowl that season, managed to pull out a victory in this particular game. Penalties can add up quickly and unless your team is championship-bound, too many flags can really hurt your chances at getting a win. Which NFL team is the best at avoiding penalties? Which is the worst? And do the numbers indicate that penalties are a major factor in a team’s success? These are a…
  • Players of the NFL and the NBA: A Side-By-Side Comparison

    Andrew Powell-Morse
    25 Nov 2013 | 12:30 pm
    The NFL and NBA are both full of top-flight athletes around the world. Some of these individuals could make the roster in either league, but many of them are specialized for their particular sport of choice. Using data from our NBA Census and NFL census, we compared the population of each league side-by-side. Our findings are shown below. The first and most basic comparison from our data is the average height and weight of players in each league. It comes as no surprise that NBA players are about six inches taller on average than NFL players. The NFL is heavier by more than 10 pounds, as…

Hell, most adults have no idea about the Illuminati. I really didn't know how to answer until suddenly the honesty spewed forth: "Baby, they are a group of people intent on taking over the world."

    "Life is happening FOR you." Digest that for a little bit. The more you embrace it, the more you realize it is, without question, credible. I first heard those words from Aaron Bomar, a man who has become one of my dearest friends in the world. He's something special folks and he is the real deal."Life is happening for you." Not only do I continue to hear those words--even to this day--but I can hear Aaron saying them in his trademark, never-to-be-mistaken southern drawl. Now, this is a man whose own life story can hardly be mistaken for 'life happening for him.' He grew up in a foster home.

She was sick as a dog but over pizza and chicken wings she told me her backstory. What a story! Abandonment, trauma, despair--all a part of her past. As she sniffed up the cold trying to contain and conquer it, I tried not to sniff up tears. Then, like the plot in a movie you don't see coming she talked about making a difference.

    Heading into the match with Elche, Atletico Madrid know the title and the points are theirs to lose. The bookmakers favor the hosts for the three points, especially since Elche is on the 15th place in the table and Atletico didn’t lose at home since November 2013. Elche will not be able to count on Ruben Perez for the match against Atletico, as they would have to pay 300.000 Euro to the hosts for the right to use the player belonging to Atletico Madrid. Taking into account the fact that Perez played for the entire 90 minute in the first match of the season, and Atletico had no problem…

    49ers’ defensive end Aldon Smith’s detainment at the airport is just one of the disappointing stories this offseason for San Francisco – Mandatory Credit: Cary Edmondson/USA TODAY Sports The San Francisco 49ers are one of the most powerful teams in the NFL. They own a dynamic quarterback, an established defense, a veteran receiving core, and a coach who knows how to win. There isn’t one facet of their organization that hinders their chances of claiming the elusive Lombardi trophy year-in-and-year-out. On Jan. 19, 2014, their bid for a second-straight Superbowl…

Yes, instant replay is arguably the more pressing issue that can be improved, but softening the blow of losing players to the shelf as frequently as it’s happening, is something that the league must strongly discuss. Never have I ever seen such a miasmic occurrence in…

In a division full of history and rivalries, the American League East has some of the best teams vying for playoff lights.

    9 Apr 2014 | 3:48 am The Brooklyn Nets have faced the Miami Heat four times this season and were successful in every game. Last night at the American Airlines Arena, the Nets defeated the Heat in another close game, 88-87. Rookie Mason Plumlee had 8 points and 8 rebounds and was crucial for the Nets in the end. Mason scored off a pick and roll giving the Nets a 88-85 lead and on the last play of the game blocked Lebron James at the end as time expired. Lebron was the only offense for Miami scoring 29 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists. Bosh had 12 points off 5-13 shooting. Against any other team,…

    Fun Times at Coliseum Friday night the Oakland A’s/Seattle Mariners game was postponed due to bad infield conditions. The bad infield conditions were due to an infield that remained uncovered and had endured overnight rainfall. Now in any other ball park this would take some doing but wouldn’t be a issue, at which doesn’t really drain properly this cause sewage backups and mushy on the field conditions (see picture below).

    There’s a tried and true expression that goes, “Anything worth having is worth fighting for” and for some time the NL West has hosted the embodiment of that in sports. The NL West has the most changes of fortune that the majors have seen in the past decade and a half span and it’s not for the lack of trying it’s because the NL West has simply not been able to maintain completeness in the teams that call it home season on season. This is until the Guggenheim group rolled in, seized the Dodgers and dumped copious amounts of money to turn it into NY Yankees West. With a fall of grace…

  • A Hot Goalie Isn’t a Better Goalie

    Neil Paine
    16 Apr 2014 | 4:19 am
    With the NHL playoffs starting this week, all eyes will be on the goaltenders, hockey’s masked men. A goalie’s time on the ice is a solitary existence, with flurries of activity punctuating long periods of inaction. Hockey has been called the ultimate team sport, but all too often the goaltender finds himself alone as the puck approaches.Because the goalie is a team’s last line of defense, it’s no surprise that strong performance in net is incredibly important to winning a hockey game. During the regular season, save percentage (the generally accepted shorthand measure of…

    This Thursday, ESPN11 will air its latest “30 for 30″ documentary special, “Bad Boys,” which explores the notorious Pistons era that brought Detroit back-to-back NBA championships 25 years ago. Along with my colleagues at Grantland who are running “Detroit Week,” I’ll be publishing articles relating to the “Bad Boys” narrative and legacy. This is Part 1, in which I’ll examine whether the Bad Boys really earned their nickname.How “bad” were they? That seems like just the kind of thing a data-driven operation might want to quantify.

  • What If An Evil Commissioner Turned Hank Aaron’s Homers Into Singles?

    Nate Silver
    14 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
    Last week I wrote about Hank Aaron, who recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of his record-breaking 715th home run. I concluded that Aaron would still have been a great player — and would very likely have made the Baseball Hall of Fame — even if all of his home runs had been counted as singles instead.Or at least — that’s almost what I wrote. What I actually wrote left a lot of room for interpretation (emphasis added from original):What if Aaron had never hit a home run? What if those 755 round-trippers had fallen for base hits instead? (If we’re trying to isolate…
  • There’s Income Inequality in Golf, Too

    Roger Pielke Jr.
    13 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
    Earlier this year, several analysts at the Harvard Sports Analysis Collective took a look at income inequality in the major U.S. sports leagues. Using Gini coefficients, an economic tool that distills the degree of inequality among a set of earners to a single number, the collective found the NHL to be the most equitable and MLB to be the least. The researchers found that salary caps help limit income inequality, essentially. The results are below. A Gini coefficient of 0.0 means that every player has the same income — perfect equality — and a Gini coefficient of 1.0 means that…

    The narrative that analytics poseurs are doing inferior jobs in front offices compared to ex-players and coaches who really know how to evaluate talent has made its way to the NBA.Last month, ESPN columnist Chris Broussard wrote a piece examining recent trends in the hiring of NBA general managers. Broussard questioned whether “stats guys” were advancing in front offices at the expense of “basketball lifers.” He quoted two anonymous NBA executives who expressed the idea that analytics is taking too large a role in front offices and that “analytics guys” who haven’t played or…

    I'm back! I know that I have been pretty scattered when it comes to putting up MLB picks, but would you rather have me put out picks every day and go 55%, or every once in a while and go 69%? For the time being, you are going to have to live with only getting a few picks per week; a minor annoyance if you ask me. Nothing like listening to some vegan talk about how much of an unhealthy dick you are, or some crossfit "athlete" tell you how pointless it is that you go to the gym to lift and do cardio instead of crossfit. God I hate those people. As a matter of fact, I'd rather listen to a group…

I'll tell you what if I was putting together a list of rising stars in the NHL I would be out of my fuckin mind if he wasn't at the top of the list. The man was a number one pick, and has justified it in every sense of the selection.  Only a real homer would pick a Red Wing over the dynamic rising rookie of the Lanche.NY at BKN (-6.5) (L)Initially when I looked at this line, I wanted to take the Knicks because I felt like they had more to play for. Then I read an article about Mike Woodson wanting to hold Melo out…
