Los Angeles Lakers: Just retire, Steve Nash

In all honesty, this probably should’ve happened two years ago.  Steve Nash’s tenure as a Laker has been an unproductive one marred by injuries. Steve Nash had the option to retire after his last season with the Phoenix Suns in 2012. The team had just come off of a season where they went 33-33 in a lockout-shortened season and missed the playoffs for the second straight season...

New York Yankees: Mark Teixeira in 2015

The New York Yankees’ 2014 season wasn’t only rough on the team’s pitchers, but position players as well. First baseman Mark Teixeira had his fair share of injuries, resulting in one of his worst MLB seasons to date. It started in March 2013 for the two-time All Star when he suffered a torn tendon sheath. It wasn’t until 53 games into the regular season that Teixeira was...

Chicago Bears: is Marc Trestman on the hot seat?

The Chicago Bears suffered another loss at Soldier field, a place in which they haven’t won a game all year. The offense struggled once again and continues to play at a inconsistent level. So as Chicago sits at a 3-4 record, is it fair to question the safety of Marc Trestman’s job? Maybe not yet, but the seat is getting hotter for Trestman and his staff. General manager Phil...

Chicago Cubs’ prospect profile: Kyle Schwarber

The Cub’s best prospect is Kris Bryant, right? Maybe not. With their first pick in the 2014 MLB Amateur Draft, the Chicago Cubs selected Kyle Schwarber 4th overall. Schwarber, out of the University of Indiana, is a catching prospect that the Cubs seemed to draft earlier than his projected value. At the time, it seemed that the Cubs were going to take a top-tier pitcher to complement...

Iowa football: Mid season report card

The Iowa defense has been carried by the defensive line so far this season. Ok, so it’s a little past the middle of the season, but I can still give out grades. I’m probably going to be a little harsh because that loss to Maryland is still leaving a bad taste in my mouth. I’m separating the team in their respected positions and will go from the best grades to the worst. Let’s...
