Well the dog days of summer have passed, and baseball pennant races are heating up as the weather cools down. The turning of the leaves means that the boys of fall are back on the gridiron, but basketball fans who live and die by the phrase “ball is life” have to wait nearly 60 more days before the NBA regular season kicks off.

Cleveland Cavaliers: Tristan Thompson Trade Rumors

All summer long we have watched Tristan Thompson turn down a five-year $80 million dollar deal and not find a negotiable contract between himself and Cleveland. Himself and agent Rich Paul, who is also LeBron James’s agent, have been looking for a bigger deal. This stems from last season’s final series when Thompson was producing on the court while Kevin Love was injured. Love...

Will Jimmer Fredette find success with Spurs?

Jimmer Fredette If Jimmer Fredette doesn’t make it with the San Antonio Spurs, then he probably won’t make it in the NBA. But I, for one, think he’s on the verge of turning his career around. I understand if you want to take that with a grain of salt coming from an alumnus of BYU, but the reality is that Jimmer has more than enough talent to succeed in the NBA, especially...

What does the magic 8 ball say about the Utah Jazz?

The Utah Jazz have had a fairly quiet offseason.  The major contributors from last season are all still in place and there have only been a few minor additions that the Jazz have made.  They went out and signed previously drafted international players, Raul Neto and Tibor Pleiss, and signed some fairly unknown underrated free agents who may or may not see a lot of playing time...

Only one week until Arizona State Football kicks off against the Texas A&M Aggies. This game will set the tone for a season full of promise.

Arizona Diamondbacks trade Addison Reed to the Mets

Well this is surprising. Sources: Addison Reed cleared waivers, facilitating trade from #DBacks to #Mets, pending medical reviews. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) August 30, 2015 Addison Reed has an ERA of 4.20 for the Arizona Diamondbacks this year, and I don’t think many people saw a contender having an interest in him. I suppose the Mets are interested in his 3.12 FIP...

Predicting the starting five for the Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers are starting the upcoming 2015-2016 NBA Season very soon, but the question is, who will be starting? The Sixers have a great pool of young talent they can use, so they will have to be careful in choosing worthy starters. Tony Wroten Starting off at point guard, the Philadelphia 76ers will be starting Tony Wroten. I truly believe Wroten is worthy of a starting...

Mexico Soccer: Ricardo Ferretti goes against the grain, snubs Dos Santos brothers

Ricardo Ferretti’s has decided to go against the grain, as hist first list of call-ups as interim manager of El Tri certainly has its fare share of questionable omissions. Guillermo Ochoa, and the Dos Santos brothers have all been omitted from the national team, and will be forced to sit out Mexico’s upcoming friendlies against Trinidad and Tobago and Argentina. It certainly...

Detroit Red Wings: Franzen expected to be ready for camp

Earlier this month on isportsweb, I discussed the situation surrounding Detroit Red Wings’ forward Johan Franzen, and whether it was time for him to retire from the NHL.  Citing numerous head injuries and a fear of existing brain damage, I believe it would be best for Franzen, who turns 36 December, to step away from the game. However, earlier this week, reports surfaced once...

Milwaukee Brewers: Highlighting OF prospect Trent Clark

The Carlos Gomez and Mike Fiers trade may have brought in four top prospects who could all be future stars for the Milwaukee Brewers. All four of those players acquired (Brett Phillips, Domingo Santana, Josh Hader and Adrian Houser) are well on their way to contributing to the MLB roster, with Santana being the first to don the Brewers uniform. Along with Domingo Santana (above...

Tennessee Titans: Taylor Lewan emerges as vocal leader

When asked how the Tennessee Titans’ offensive line performed in 2014, Taylor Lewan responded, “To be brutally honest I think we were soft, and I think Bob Bostad would say the same thing.” Bob Bostad is the Titans’ offensive line coach. Lewan has an argument. Rushing and offensive production measure the strength of an offensive line. During the 2014 regular season, the Titans...

St. Louis Rams position preview: Defensive backs

The St. Louis Rams secondary is a talented group, but had their own share of concerns at points throughout the year. Specifically, the group struggled early on in the season, but managed to truly come into their own as the year progressed. But this season figures to be a different beast, as they have lost the services of second-year standout cornerback E.J. Gaines for the season...

New York Jets Preseason Preview: New York Giants

Ivory’s improvements this off-season show he can be a three-down back in this offense. Despite a slow start to the game defensively, the New York Jets looked good in their Week 2 preseason match-up against the Atlanta Falcons. Ryan Fitzpatrick was conservative but accurate, completing 13 of 19 passes for 118 yards, while Chris Ivory continued to impress, carrying the ball five...

It took over four months, but the Texas Rangers are finally syncing in all facets of the game. Texas has shown flashes of dominant pitching, elite offense, and even the occasional flash of a competitive bullpen. But not until the month of August has all of this come together to form one of the better teams in the American League. The start of the 2015 season was one of the more...

Arizona Diamondbacks transactions under Dave Stewart

Dave Stewart took over as the general manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks in September of 2014. As the successor to Kevin Towers, who had completely fallen out of favor with D’Back fans, it seemed like Stewart could do no wrong. It’s almost a year later now, and with the waiver trade deadline coming Monday it’s probably safe to assume that the D’Backs won’t be making any...

Oakland Raiders: First impressions of Mario Edwards Jr.

Half of the preseason is now in the books for the Oakland Raiders and although this isn’t enough to get a good idea how starters are coming along, it is enough to get a good look at some of the up-and-coming players from this years draft. Mario Edwards had a bit of slow start to say the least in his first preseason game. His play didn’t jump off the screen and he seemed to be...
