Preventing "The Process" Again

Here is the conundrum faced by the NBA: how do you give lousy teams hope without encouraging them to tank? Like it or not, the Philadelphia 76ers will add a high lottery pick this summer to Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons and have the core of a team that is ready to compete for a championship at […]

The Sabermetric Standard

Hits. Batting Average. Home runs. Strikeouts. Wins. Every year that Hall of Fame ballots are filled out, these so-called baseball card statistics are almost always used as the framework for determining who deserves a vote. With few exceptions, any player that eclipses 3,000 hits, .300 career batting average, 500 homers, 3,000 strikeouts (pitching only, of […]

AFC Playoffs

Tough defenses, an angry MVP candidate, and a handful of former backup quarterbacks paint the picture for the AFC Playoffs. As we’ve learned time and time again with this special time of the football year, it’s almost always anybody’s game. Let’s look at every team’s shot: how do they win and how do they lose? […]

NFC Playoffs

Rookies were sensational, tables were ran, dirty birds flew, and the middle aged gentleman who quietly and awkwardly bags my groceries led a team to the playoffs in his first stint as a head coach. The NFC playoffs are upon us. 6 teams are in the running for the Super Bowl. Here we break down their […]
