Boston Red Sox: The Jon Lester Conundrum

Brief confession: I hate the MLB Trading Deadline. I don’t mind it in theory, and if I was a casual fan with no team allegiance, it would be a blast to see how the league scrambles to make tiny adjustments (or huge-dynamite-blow-it-up moves) for a playoff push. I hate it like I hate rollercoasters. There fun in theory, but most of the time I just close my eyes, wait for that sinking...

The Arizona Diamondbacks have a lot of problems. They make disastrous trades involving elite players who aren’t “gritty” enough. They discourage Brandon McCarthy from throwing his cutter and trade him. McCarthy dominates in his first three starts with his new team using his cutter liberally. But not all of the Diamondback’s problems are bad ones. They have a logjam in the...

Denver Nuggets: Are there any free agents worth pursuing?

The Denver Nuggets have one of the deepest rosters in the NBA, so when I look into the remaining pool of free agents there is little to no worth that needs to be pursued. But also when looking at the roster, something needs to change in order for them to become a championship team. They have a lot of talent, but the power of a big name player isn’t behind them.

They also grabbed former St. Louis Ram Darian Stewart, so Brooks will have to stand out as a star rookie in order to clutch the free safety job.
