Anthony Rizzo: The New Prototype Leadoff Man?

Anthony Rizzo is not the old school type leadoff man. Doesn’t need to be. He’s not the little scrappy guy who’s always a threat to steal a base or two and who can exhibit a little HR power. He can,however work the count, get on base as well as knock the stuffing out of the […]

Please stop the bleeding!

Praying that the Warriors put an end to the NBA season tonight. Why 3 days between games anyway? Put the Cavs out of their misery tonight please KD.

Predators are the Prey

It’s still hard for me to envision hockey in the south. Although not a great NHL fan, I was hoping the Predators would hoist the Cup. They would’ve if they didn’t have to play in Pittsburgh.

Stick a Fork In the Cavs

Before the championship series between the Warriors and Cavaliers, I predicted the Warriors in six games. After watching the first two, I see a broom on the horizon. Maybe the Cavs could win one at home, but they look seriously over matched.

Three’s A Charm?

It’s the rubber championship match between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers starting Thursday June 1. My pick is the Warriors in 6 games. I don’t think the Cavs have enough to win more than 2 games. My hope is that we see two different teams next year. A fourth installment of this […]

What’s Happ-ening?

The Chicago Cubs recently promoted Ian Happ to play with the big boys. Another young future star in my opinion. He’s a perfect fit for Coach Maddon. He’s versatile, can play infield or outfield, has power, and is a good fielder. Just another young talented prospect on a team laden with future, if not already […]

How Many Strikes Until You’re Out By Josh Gordon?

Josh Gordon in trouble again? Imagine that! This NFL bad boy gets more negative air time than on the field time. I empathize with his issues as I am a recovering addict and know of the struggles. In no way am I judging him. I will refrain from calling him an addict. If he is, […]

BBWAA vs. Derek Jeter

BBWAA vs. Derek Jeter Sunday night yet another New York Yankee’s jersey was retired! The ceremony for Derek Jeter was awesome and fitting. A lifelong Yankee fan, I was blessed to watch “The Captain” play for his entire 20 year career. All-time he didn’t hit the most home runs, steal the most bases, or have […]

A Tale of Two Teams Yankees Fans

Being a Yankees fan since my father took me to a White Sox/Yankees game some fifty years ago and a Cubs fan since WGN was broadcasting games on cable, last weekend’s Yankees/Cubs series tore at my heartstrings. Although I couldn’t lose, I wanted them to both win. As a little shaver I remember the few […]
