LeBron James to the Knicks? Where Else Could He End Up?

It became apparent to me that I needed to write this article after ESPN’s post-game show did not talk about the Celtics for the first 20 minutes because they were too busy analyzing LeBron James. So here it is: It’s a little earlier than expected, but the time has finally come. Teams outside of Cleveland […]

2010 NFL Draft Preview: New England Patriots

It’s that time of year again. The time when we can all gather and watch a bunch of kids younger than us make millions of dollars just by getting their name called on a podium. The Patriots can go many different ways in this draft, but one thing is for sure; they will go after […]

Red Sox 2010 Roster Preview: Infield

If you’re a fan of fine defense, you will enjoy this infield unit in 2010. A quick recap of what went down this offseason: Adrian Beltre replaces an old, worn-down Mike Lowell at third base. Kevin Youkilis moves permanently to first base where he is a gold-glove caliber player. Marco Scutaro replaces a two-year hodgepodge […]

New England Patriots Offseason: What To Do With This Defense?

Ask any Patriots fan what the Patriots need to improve on and about 90 percent will tell you the defense. The other 10 percent will continue to live in the fantasy world that was 2001-2007. In 2010, the defense definitely struggled to find veteran leadership after they shipped off Richard Seymour and Mike Vrabel and […]

Garnett Returns As Celtics Beat Battered Blazers

Ray Allen missed almost every shot (3-for-14), but hit the one that mattered—a three-pointer with 42 seconds left in OT—as the Celtics squeaked out a 98-95 overtime win over the banged up Portland Trail Blazers at the TD Garden on Friday night. The Celtics felt the return of Kevin Garnett, especially on the defensive end, […]

Where Do the Patriots Go From Here?

The Patriots took quite the beating at the hands of the Ravens on Sunday to lose their first home playoff game in the Belichick-Brady era. It wasn’t pretty, but it did tell us one thing—Wes Welker would not have made a difference. The Patriots were outplayed by so much that their top offensive weapon would […]

Mark McGwire Steroids Confession: My Personal Response

Dear Mark McGwire, I would just like to say that I feel sorry for you. I felt sorry when you tried to hide behind your microphone during the 2005 hearings. Now, I feel sorry that even when you try to admit to your wrongdoings, you are still in denial. We already knew you took steroids, […]

Five Easy Steps to Enjoying the Patriots-Ravens Game

Of course the Patriots drew the toughest possible matchup in the first round according to my own list. You didn’t think I would read anyone else’s work did you? On top of that, Wes Welker injures himself (yes you read that right) and possibly takes himself out for not only the playoffs, but the entire […]

Adrian Beltre Signing Completes Red Sox Defensive Overhaul

When I first heard that the Red Sox signed Adrian Beltre to a one-year, $9 million contract with a 2011 player option for $5 million, my first thought was that it was a perfect deal for both parties involved. On the one hand, the Red Sox fill a gaping hole at third base, but only […]

Who Will the Patriots Face in the Playoffs?

As the Patriots head into Week 17 they know two things—they clinched the AFC East and will get either the No. 3 or No. 4 seed. What they do not know is who they will host in their first playoff game. Currently there are seven teams fighting for two wild card spots, which gives us […]

Week 17: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

For week 17, I decided to stray away from the rankings format, firstly because it’s extremely hard to rank one quarter of a star player against a full game against a second-stringer and, secondly, I feel that it’s more important to stress which players will be getting a huge boost in playing time and which […]

Week 16: Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em

As we gather ’round the Christmas tree, we must be grateful for the three F’s: Family, Friends, and Fantasy Football (Ok, so 4 F’s). At this point in time, we can think of Chris Johnson as the Red Ryder B.B. Gun of the season while someone like Matt Forte was just a big, disappointing lump of coal. […]

Who Are These Patriots?

The Patriots beat the Bills for the 13th straight time, but it wasn’t pretty as they were able to hold on to a 17-10 win. Brady threw for a season-low 115 yards and the Bills did their part by committing 11 penalties for 124 yards. It was the Patriots’ first legit road win, but somehow […]

Week 15: Start’Em/Sit ‘Em

Last week, I did the 2009 All-Disappointment Team because in most of my leagues I did not make the playoffs due to a lot of players underachieving or getting injured. Call it a bitter article if you want, but this week I’m doing a complete 180 and am going to list the players who far […]

Could Aroldis Chapman be the Final Piece for the Red Sox?

In the jigsaw puzzle that has become the Red Sox mission to acquire Adrian Gonzalez, it seems like the final missing piece could be Aroldis Chapman. Let’s look at what pieces have fallen in place for the Red Sox so far: Jed Hoyer became the new Padres’ GM, giving the Red Sox a familiar face […]
