Ten MLB players that need to step up in 2015

By Ian Casselberry We’re nearly two weeks into the 2015 season, and are already getting some initial ideas of who the standout performers of the year could be. But of course, it’s early and more than 150 games remain on the schedule. That leaves an enormous amount of time for players to either maintain hot starts or break out of early-season struggles. Several star players...

Were we all wrong about the Kansas City Royals?

By Randy Holt Rushing to judgment about the success of a particular player or a specific team after only a week of the Major League Baseball season is always a rather questionable endeavor. This is particularly true in the event of declaring a team to be a contender or otherwise after such a limited sample size of games. However, in the case of the Kansas City Royals, that may not...

The end of the NBA amnesty era

By Miles Wray Way back when the league’s new collective bargaining agreement was signed in fall of 2011, ending that horrible season-shortening lockout, a new provision allowed NBA teams a one-time mulligan: the amnesty clause. Each team was allowed one opportunity to cut a player without any salary cap ramifications. The team still had to pay the entirety of the salary out...

USWNT announce full roster for the 2015 Women’s World Cup

By Andrew Coppens Shock, horror…how could Jill Ellis do that to….oh wait, this isn’t last summer and Jill Ellis isn’t Jurgen Klinsmann. On Tuesday afternoon Ellis unveiled the 23-woman roster for the 2015 Women’s World Cup, and unlike her male counterpart, there were very few surprises in the announcement at all. Abby Wambach? Check.

Rolling out the early-season MLB ‘jump to conclusions’ mat

By Ian Casselberry Yes, it’s early. We’re just into the second week of the 2015 MLB season, and most teams have 155 games left to play. But after five months without meaningful baseball, it’s easy to react to what we’ve seen early on and form early impressions based on that. It takes a bit of time to reacquaint ourselves with baseball’s long marathon.

Ten college rivalries killed by conference realignment

By David Fox  Thanksgiving hasn’t been the same since the Texas A&M and Missouri started hanging out with the SEC. Or since West Virginia and Pitt started rolling with the Big 12 and ACC, respectively.
