Kawhi Leonard and the 5 stages of a Spurs fan’s grief

A year’s worth of processing the loss of San Antonio’s best player — condensed into a single article. So you’re likely familiar with the Kubler Ross five stages of grief model. For anyone who’s rusty on the concept, I’ll give you a quick breakdown. There are five common stages when dealing with any loss: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. It should be noted that this process is not linear and some phases may resurface, especially as new information comes to light. As the news about Kawhi Leonard’s potential future in San Antonio continue to get more and more...

Arizona Diamondbacks 7, Los Angeles Angels 4

Three home-runs and another Dyson web-gem were key to a winning start on the road-trip. The Diamondbacks got started early, with a two-run homer from Paul Goldschmidt, not even a handful of pitches into the game. Ketel Marte added a solo shot, and further RBI from Jeff Mathis and Jarrod Dyson pushed the score to 6-0 by the middle of the fourth. Zack Greinke appeared to be cruising, but then allowed back-to-back home-runs to Justin Upton and Albert Pujols. He ended up going 6.1 innings, with three runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts. Things looked very dicey in the...

Marlins 5, Giants 4: An early contender for best inning of the year?!

Rookies and vets alike combine to score three in the ninth to stun the Giants. Almost leaves you speechless. Trailing throughout the game on Monday night, the Marlins rallied in the ninth inning against Giants closer Hunter Strickland. Miguel Rojas delivered the decisive run-scoring single in an improbable 5-4 series-opening victory. Caleb Smith: 4.0 IP, 6 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K (88 pitches) Andrew Suárez: 6.1 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K (79 pitches) Calling upon Drew Rucinski in the fifth inning is usually like waving the white flag.

Kennedy touched up for five runs in six innings, more than enough to sink these Royals So the Royals lost again. This loss was against the Texas Rangers. The Rangers were 15 games under .500 to start action tonight. Ian Kennedy served up two dongs, one in the first and one in the third, the last one putting the Rangers up 5-0. It should go without saying that the 2018 Royals did not storm back from a five-run deficit to steal one away from Texas. Bartolo Colon let the Royals back into it a little in the home halves of the third and fourth innings. Adalberto Mondesí doubled in Rosell...

LAA asks the Diamondbacks for assistance with their 2018 self-immolation and Arizona is more than happy to oblige. The Angels returned to Anaheim today, the proud proprietor of a 1-6 record over the previous 8 days, and made good on their oath to maintain this trend of decay. The Angels higher-ups may not have outright claimed it and they may not ever, but it is apparent that the sweep at the hands of the Mariners has driven them to embrace the Wikimedia Commons It’s not necessarily a bad thing.
