Point: It Is Time For The Cowboys To Move On From Rolando McClain

He was very important in 2014, but the recent failed drug test and suspension make him no longer worth keeping. The Dallas Cowboys gave Rolando McClain a chance to redeem himself after the troubled and chaotic beginning of his NFL career. Following the often ineffective results on the field and not one but two retirements from professional football, he was given a one year, "prove-it" contract. Dynamic play at middle linebacker from him was a large factor in the surprising success Dallas had in 2014. He proved he still had it, and the Cowboys gave him another opportunity for 2015. He has...

Game 82 Thread: July 4 vs. Mets, 4.15p

Zack Greinke (6-2, 1.58) vs. Matt Harvey (7-5, 2.99) Welp, throw out everything we said in the GT yesterday. Dodgers were back home after a grueling road trip, playing on a day's rest. Kershaw was taking the mound with a strong lineup behind him, up against a team that can't generate any offense. And lost. Soooooo...I'm calling a do-over like we used to when we were playing in the streets as kids and a car or tree or something interfered with the run of play. We'll start Zack today and send Clayton to his room to think about why he's so mediocre this season. This one's nationally televised...

Pirates lose game to Indians, Clayton Richard to Cubs, Jameson Taillon to hernia

If I had time to write a preview for yesterday’s game, I would have said that I was a bit concerned about this Pirates/Indians series as the Indians have a pitching staff that strikes hitters out like crazy and the Pirates have an offense that tends to stall out against high-strikeout pitchers by striking out […]
