Game 128, Mariners at White Sox

Roenis Elias vs. Carlos Rodon, 5:10pm Welcome back, Roenis. The Cuban lefty evidently wasn’t terribly happy about being in Tacoma and stunk up the PCL for a while before his recent recall. He’s obviously been much better in the big leagues, although exactly why is an interesting question for someone to research. Unlike many (most?) This post came from: U.S.S.

Five Questions with Big Blue View

I had a chance to speak to Ed Valentine of BigBlueView, our sister site that covers the New York Giants. I suggest you check out their site for more info about the opponent for this week's Snoopy Bowl match-up. 1. There was a report that Eli Manning wants to be the highest paid quarterback in the league, which he vehemently denied. How do you think the Giants should approach his contract?

What The Rams Learned From Sam Bradford

In his final months with the St. Louis Rams, Sam Bradford taught the Rams a big time lesson.... "I told him he didn't deserve this."

Fisher made it no secret that Sam was the teams present and future. At the time of Bradford's ACL tear, he was looking healthy. The ball was flying out of...
