Oh, no! The Yankees may have lost their two big hitters: Teixeira (.217) and Beltran (.233)

In comedy, they say timing is everything. Maybe the same holds true for farce.This year, the Incompetent Empire has suffered from dreadful timing, especially with injuries. Yesterday, Mark Teixeira was pulled after wincing noticably in a swing. Meanwhile, Carlos Beltran is in the waiting room for surgery on his elbow, an issue he battled all summer. Both guys apparently have...

Second Thoughts Game #154: Indians 7, Minnesota 3

It's not entirely true to say that T.J. House received zero press before the season, and it's also not entirely true that IBI was thesole provider of that press, but given how long House had been in the Indians' system and his distance from his original prospect hype, the renewed 2014 attention surrounding House came as something of a surprise for folks like myself...

Steelers vs Ravens Film Review: Cameron Heyward

Throughout his career, Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward has been consistently used on both sides of the defensive line, depending on whichever starter needed a breather.

MLB Game Picks - Sunday: September 21, 2014

Three straight great picking days crashed down in a pile of goo yesterday. That's the way it goes sometimes. I was too silly to think the Royals would beat the Tigers with their best pitcher on the mound. The Giants lost again. The Mariners got crushed by the Astros and I should have listened to myself about Dallas Keuchel. The Yankees lost. The Pirates lost while their best...

Television And Radio Calls Of Arizona Hail Mary

If you were asleep, or even worse have DirecTV, you missed quite the finish in tonight’s Cal vs. Arizona game. Cal led 31-13 heading into the 4th quarter. An 18 point lead is never a sure thing, but Cal actually added 2 more touchdowns to bring their point total to 45 points. It wasn’t enough though as Arizona scored 36 points (5 touchdowns (two without XP) and a field goal)...
