David Ortiz Rants on Steroids, Testing, Hall of Fame

By on March 27, 2015 at 5:47pm

David Ortiz posted an article to The Players’ Tribune, Derek Jeter’s website, ranting and raving about old accusations surrounding his use of steroids and performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs).

Ortiz’s post was seemingly unprovoked. No one that I know of has said anything thus far this season about David Ortiz and PEDs. Don’t bring an issue to light if you want it kept in the dark, David. Too late, because now everyone is buzzing about the post called “The Dirt.”

Is he just seeking unneeded attention, again? Continue reading David Ortiz Rants on Steroids, Testing, Hall of Fame »

Fantasy Baseball Draft Review

It’s getting closer and closer to opening day, and if you’re like me then you’ve already got fantasy baseball on your mind. Many of you may have even done your drafts by now. You may even have some money on the line.

Personally, I’m in a 10-team dynasty league with friends that’s extremely competitive. Every guy in the league knows his stuff, and they’re all very active on the waiver wire and trading block. It’s also really interesting to see how people run their team in a dynasty league like this as opposed to a single-season league. And let me tell you- the draft is VERY different.

I wanted to show you my team and draft results and get into why I went with each pick, where the draft was going, and maybe give you some tips and insight as you approach your own fantasy seasons. First, let’s take a look at my keepers from last year. The way it works is, you get to keep up to 9 players and they take the a draft pick based on their respective rankings. So the free agent pool at draft looks very different.

Here is my team and the draft picks they slotted into: Continue reading Fantasy Baseball Draft Review »

Entering last Thursday the Bruins were looking at three crucial road games that could make or potentially break their playoff chances. They had to go on the road to Ottawa, Florida (Panthers) and Tampa Bay. The Senators and Panthers were nipping at the Bruins heels while the Lightning had established themselves as a top tier Eastern Conference opponent. Had the Bruins been able to pick up 4-6 points not only would they have firm grasp on a wild card spot, but they could legitimately challenge Detroit for third place in their division. Unfortunately, the Bruins turned in three inconsistent efforts and garnered only one point thanks to two regulation losses against Ottawa and Tampa Bay while losing in overtime to the Panthers.

For those of you reserving a place for Vince Wilfork to make a stirring return to the New England Patriots, you’ll have to find a different 325-pound defensive lineman to fill that hole in your heart.
