Interview: Texas Rangers OF David Murphy

Mike, A.J. and I attended a Reebok media event mainly for the free shoes, shirts and shorts, but we were able to squeak out a couple interviews. We approached David Murphy as he was checking out the new, award-winning Vector O-Bat and asked him questions about his experience as a professional baseball player. So without […]

Week 10: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Have you watched that new show on ABC called Flash Forward? For those who haven’t here’s a quick summary. The whole world blacked out for 137 seconds, during which, everyone saw a vision that took place six months in the future. I’m going to stop right there because that’s all I need for this introduction. […]

Vollmer, Patriots Silence Joey Porter

On Sunday, Nov. 9, the Patriots took the field against the Dolphins on what they were hoping to be a snowy field, but the Dolphins were a few weeks too late. Instead they got a sunny, 65-degree day, which is what you would expect from a Miami home game. Despite the wacky weather, the Patriots […]

Glen Davis in the NFL?

Football and Basketball are not that different. Both sports require you to be freakishly athletic, strong, and jumping ability is a must. You have to be good with your hands whether you are an offensive lineman trying to fend off a defensive end, a wide receiver trying to grab a pass, or a shooting guard […]

Week 9: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Brett Favre, Adrian Peterson, Steven Jackson, Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian, Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery, Visanthe Shiancoe, Dustin Keller. What do these players all have in common? They are all on their byes this week. Why do you care? Well, you don’t really, but consider this – out of all the players on a […]

Week 8: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

I am frustrated. I mentioned last week how owners should get creative when dealing with their bye weeks. I shared with you how I coped with a tough Week 4 by making two trades that value-wise weren’t in my favor, but allowed me to upgrade my starting lineup – or so I thought. Let’s look […]

Red Sox Hot Stove 2009 Preview

Five years and two days ago, the Red Sox ended an 86-year World Series drought. Today they are 18 days removed from being swept by the Angels in the ALDS. This will be a big offseason for the Red Sox because they have some glaring holes they need to fill. The team needs to acquire […]

What Happened to Parity in the NFL?

Another week, another blowout. The Patriots didn’t need much to beat the winless Bucs, but the offense had another great game in the 35-7 blowout. Tom Brady threw for another three touchdowns, giving him 15 on the season (were we actually worried about this guy?), and the defense continued to play well with Meriweather’s two […]

Fantasy Basketball 2009-10 Draft Preview

The 2009-10 basketball season is just a couple days away and many fantasy leagues will be drafting their teams this weekend. This is why I took it upon myself to comprise a top-10 list for each position, along with likes/dislikes. In addition to the lists, I will give you the secret to finding success when […]

Week 7: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Week seven marks the first of three weeks where six teams will be on their bye week. In these next three weeks you will have to scramble to find replacements for your starters. Word of advice: don’t be afraid to get creative. The typical move would be to replace your player on a bye week […]

Patriots First in AFC East, Brady is Back…Or Is He?

Now that’s more like it! The Patriots absolutely destroyed the lifeless Tennessee Titans by the score of 59-0 Sunday afternoon. It was as one-sided a football game can get, but I would take a 59-point blow out over a nail biter any day of the week. There is something about being able to relax and […]

Is Rajon Rondo an All-Star in 2009-2010?

Let’s just get this out of the way. There is no player on the Celtics with more upside than Rajon Rondo. We saw flashes of brilliance in the playoffs as he nearly averaged a triple double in 14 games. However, since the Celtics got eliminated from the playoffs, a lot of drama has surrounded Rondo. […]

Brady’s Struggles a Cause for Concern in 2009

Last weekend was not a good one to be a Boston sports fan. We watched the Red Sox blow leads of 5-2 in the seventh and 6-4 in the ninth in the same game and then immediately after, like a nice one-two punch combo, the Patriots blew a 10-point second half lead and lost to […]

Week 6: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

Breaking up is the hardest thing to do. I just pulled out that cliché because it holds true in both real life and fantasy football. Over the years, I have learned that you do not win fantasy football leagues by holding onto big names waiting for them to start producing for you. I have found […]

Celtics 2009-2010 Season Preview: Centers & Forwards

Kevin Garnett’s injury spelled doom for this unit in the 2008-09 season. Much like the guards, the Celtics lacked enough big bodies when Garnett went down. Glen Davis was forced to start and Brian Scalabrine was moved into a more prominent role. Mikki Moore was signed to provide another big body, but he did not […]
