So, about one-quarter of the way through the season already, and still nobody can explain the 2015 season - myself included. To start the season, they were one of baseball's worst teams; then, they grew mustaches and became one of baseball's best teams, leading the AL East. Now, after a middling May and coming off a rough road trip, the team is tied for first with the equally-surprising Tampa Bay Rays. But which of these teams - the terrible team, the league-best team, or the m...
This past week, players on the New York Yankees acted out a famous scene from the awesome baseball movie The Sandlot. If you haven't seen it already, you definitely need to. And that got me thinking....with Opening Day coming up within the next week-and-a-half, we need to take a look at this year's Yankees's projected roster - and, since there are so many of these out there, let's take some inspiration from the team and use theater (movies, musicals, and plays) to describe the team.S...
Apologies for not blogging much lately; things have been very busy. Hope you all enjoy this little parody of the famous Les Miserables song that I have written as baseball finally returns tomorrow.Alex Rodriguez: One day more, another day, another destiny, on this never-ending road to Cavalry. MLB who knows my crimes will surely come a second time, one day moreHal Steinbrennar: I did not live until today, how can I love when we are parted?Core 4: From now on we’re all worlds away, and ye...
Towards the end of the January an epic game of football is played in Hawaii, a game played with passion, filled with excitement, energy, and a bunch of people enjoying the warm Hawaiian winter. It is a game unlike every other, where the greatest players of the football season join together and show what happens when all the greats play on the same field for sixty minutes, a true showcase of skill and athleticism.Of course, that's what it is supposed to be; everyone who has seen even clips of the...
Baseball may be America's pastime, but more and more in recent years it has lost fans to football, basketball, and even soccer. They claim that the game is not exciting, that it moves too slowly, that it's too long, that it takes no athletic ability. And while everyone who actually played baseball knows that the last one is a complete lie, they do have a valid point - games in recent years have become increasingly and unnecessarily longer, with the pace of the game slowing to a crawl...
Giants fans will be eager to welcome - or rather, welcome back - their new defensive coordinator, Steve Spagnuolo, who spent two years as Defensive Coordinator for the Giants during the 2007-2008 seasons.alisEver since the Perry Fewell was fired last week, many speculated that the Baltimore Ravens defensive back coach was the leading candidate for the position, as his previous Giants years saw two of the top defenses in the league, leading the team to the Super Bowl victory in 2007 and an 11-1 s...
The NCAA Football Bowl Games and Playoffs are behind us, the NFL Conference Championship Games and Super Bowl are close upon us, and the height of football games - and game-watching parties - are upon us. What I have noticed recently, however, is that there are a large number of people, including college students, who don't know much of the game of football beyond the names of a few players on their favorite team, what the positions are, and that Peyton Manning is on Papa Johns and Nationw...
As always happens following the baseball Hall of Fame announcement, there was an uproar of sorts. Not to take away from the accomplishments of Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz, and Craig Biggio, all of whom more than deserve to be in the Hall of Fame, but there are many out there who believe Mike Piazza ought to have been voted it (yes, yes he did), or Mike Mussina, or even such controversial players as Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds. In response, there are many alternatives...
