Ranking Each Teams Offseason Moves

The 2013 Winter Meeting have been kicked off with a bang. So here we go. Seattle Mariners: C+. Obviously, Seattle has made the biggest off season splash thus far in their singing of 2nd baseman Robinson Cano. On paper it looks like a good deal, Seattle has a lot of potential, and they also have...
Cano To The Mariners; 10-Yr/$240M

Cano To The Mariners; 10-Yr/$240M

Big splash in the free agent market this morning. After long talks between Cano and the Seattle Mariners it seemed like there would be no deal made between the teams. Cano wanting a 10 year deal, and Seattle hesitant to give it to him. They ended up meeting in the middle, the M’s gave him...

Jim Leyland Gone, Who Next?

The Detroit Tigers have a large offseason hole to fill, and it will be difficult to find another manager that matches Jim Leyland. Or even comes close. Coming into a struggling Detroit Tigers team in 2006, Leyland led them to a 95-67 record and an AL Pennant. Something the Tigers have not had since ’87....

What’s Next For The Detroit Tigers

What is next for the Detroit Tigers? Or maybe this can be re-worded, what Detroit Tigers team are we going to see tonight in game 6 vs. The Boston Red Sox? Two possibilities, we see the Tigers team that can’t score runs, play with no heart or intensity and seem to have no desire to...
Johnny Manziel- The Best College Football Quarterback Ever?

Johnny Manziel- The Best College Football Quarterback Ever?

Who knew in two years that one football player could throw up such incredible stats, individual performances, and such controversy. Yep, that’s Johnny Manziel, a player with very similar skills to Tim Tebow on the field, but the complete opposite set of skills (if that’s even what you’d call them) off the field. Tebow is...

And Then There Were 4

This Postseason has not let us down. Far from it. We had two insane wild card games, won by the Tampa Bay Rays and Pittsburgh Pirates. Followed by two easy ALDS-NLDS series, LA Dodgers beating the Atlanta Braves 3 games to 1, and the Boston Red Sox taking care of the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1....
