Sterling Xie Gets Realistic About Tony Romo (With Support)

3

No one should sweep Romo's aforementioned gaffes under the rug, because they were undeniably crushing errors in big situations. But he is far from the only quarterback to commit those errors, and the evidence shows that not only is Romo an excellent quarterback overall, he is also generally excellent in "clutch" circumstances. With an aging roster and a tight cap situation, the Cowboys' window of contention may be closed. Just don't blame Tony Romo for the entire Dallas organization's underachievement.

Right Handed Hitters Deserving of an Infield Shift

1

As extreme shifts (finally) become more common and successful in MLB, Noah Woodward at the Hardball Times has a list of five players from the right side deserving of one. Unsurprisingly, one is Ian Kinsler. Fortunately, it takes a pretty strong right infield to even be able to shift, so I doubt it will affect him too much.
