VCU and Fouls

With the NCAA trying to create a more offensive game by discouraging defensive hand-checks, it will be interesting to see how VCU reacts. VCU thrives on their intense defense which frequently uses...


Curtis Granderson to Boston?

I would like to go on record as saying this: I started this rumor. But would anyone object to this? Batting 2nd and playing RF, number 12, Curtis. Granderson. Let's face it: It's going to take A...


Biggest Weakness? Bullpen

Aside from the question marks at CF, SS, and C, which will eventually work themselves out, the biggest concern for the Red Sox has to be the 7th and 8th inning bullpen arms. Sure, there are plenty...


Bright Spot: Attendance & Free Agency

If there is one bright spot about this disappointing season, it's that attendance at Nationals Park continues to climb. Despite being below .500, the Nationals have drawn 33,360 fans per game in...

I have seen nothing about Baltimore being in the trade market for pitching. To me, if this team were to add a top-of-the-line starter to the mix, they become scary good. The only thing stopping...


Bad Luck Bullpen

If there is one area the Red Sox haven't seen much luck this year, it's in the bullpen. Joel Hanrahan, Andrew Bailey, and Andrew Miller were expected to be the 3 big guns in the 'pen for Boston....


Clutch Hitting not Hurting Nats

The Washington Nationals simply do not have offensive firepower. Individually, the players are performing around their career averages. So we can rule out clutch hitting as an offensive woe. Last...


Nats Ownership Should Go All-In

For the Washington Nationals, the time is now. I’m not talking about the Nats’ urgent need to win games in order to make this year’s playoffs. Because as I write this, the Nats are 48-48, wildly...
