On Paper Aaron Hill Cylces The Diamondbacks, Aaron Hill, has done something that is amazingly rare. Hitting for the cycle is on the same level as a no hitter. 294 times a player has hit for a cycle in a game and 276 times has a pitcher accomplished a no-no. On Friday night, Hill’s triple in the 6th clinched the cycle for Arizona 2nd baseman. The cycle is a great feat yet what Hill has accomplished in the last 12 days is one of the rarest baseball accomplishments in MLB history. On the 18th Hill hit for the cycle against the Mariners, which by having 2 cycles in the same season, he has become just the fourth player in history to accomplish that feat. 4 is coincidentally the number of pitchers who have had multiple no-hitters in the same season! Congrats to Hill and his amazing feat. Upset Potential Worlds Fastest Man We remeber the summer of 2008 for Phelps golds and Usain Bolt’s ridiculous speed, yet what has happened since then? Many may not have been paying attention but Bolt di...

A shocker? Well, that's for the world to decide. One thing for sure, however, is that the calculus...
