John Sherman could be an improvement, but don’t expect a miracle

John Sherman could be an improvement, but don’t expect a miracle

He’s still just a businessman. Well, it’s finally official: this week, John Sherman was unanimously approved by the Major League Baseball owners to complete his purchase of the Kansas City Royals. After two decades under previous owner David Glass—and even longer, if you take into account Glass’ guidance of the team in the 1990s—there’s a brand new face in town. Glass had his warts, to be sure. He was famously cheap for years, holding back the Royals from doing anything competitive on the field. Anecdotes abound, but here’s a particularly potent one: Carlos Beltran, potential...

Intriguing Falcons to watch against the Buccaneers

Intriguing Falcons to watch against the Buccaneers

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports After another dominant victory over the Panthers, the Falcons (3-7) return home to face the Buccaneers (3-7) in their third-straight division game. Here are some of the most interesting players to watch when Atlanta takes on Tampa Bay in Week 12. After dispatching the Panthers (5-5) in Week 11, the Falcons (3-7) are on their first winning streak of the 2019 season. It’s unclear exactly what prompted this resurgence from the team, but it is clear that the defense has performed a total 360—Atlanta allowed an average of over 31 points per game in the first...

Staff AAOP: One does not simply walk into the playoffs

Staff AAOP: One does not simply walk into the playoffs

A Lord of the Rings themed path to contention for the Mets. Though they didn’t make the playoffs, the Mets had a reasonably successful 2019. Pete Alonso took home Rookie of the Year, Jacob deGrom won the Cy Young for a second straight year, and several other young players blossomed into major contributors. At the same time, there was plenty of bad, chief among them being the Braves winning the division and the Nationals winning the World Series while the Mets sat at home in October. (Odd to make the Mets the evil Maiar in this analogy, but work with me here.) If the Mets...

Sneaky Good 76: Outlier—Not Out Lying (Well, Maybe They Are)—Ole Miss

See what we did there? Poseur and Chris welcome back Seth and Jake to discuss the defensive struggles against Ole Miss, and how the offense didn’t even hit a speed bump. Speaking of speed bumps, there is mention of the upcoming contest against Arkansas, and the guys nerd out to listener questions. Are there Star Wars questions? Do we talk about cartoons again? Does Poseur go on an inexplicable defense of DUMBO that nobody asked for? I think we know the answers. Intro/outro song is “Je Suis Fier de Toi” by The Mudbugs Cajun & Zydeco Band from their 2010 album “Mudbugs”. Used...

Fun stuff Friday: Emil Bemstrom is riding high as he finds his game

Photo by Jamie Sabau/NHLI via The rookie is starting to discover his play after a slow start to the season. Emil Bemstrom is starting to discover his game as the team nears Thanksgiving, just in time for the Columbus Blue Jackets whose offense has been struggling for much of the season. Heading into Saturday night’s matchup with the Winnipeg Jets, Bemstrom is finding his scoring touch. Last night unfortunately broke his point streak dating to the Jackets’ road win over the Arizona Coyotes. In that time he had notched 3-3-6 and climbed into a tie for fifth on the team for most goals...

Gary Sheffield is lone Milwaukee Brewers connection to 2020 Baseball Hall of Fame Ballot

Photo by Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via He has had trouble garnering much support so far. The 2020 National Baseball Hall of Fame ballot has been released, and this year, only one player who spent time with the Milwaukee Brewers has made the cut. That man is Gary Sheffield, who was drafted the Brewers in the first round at #6 overall in 1986. He debuted in the big leagues two years later at age 19 and spent the first four seasons of his career in the Cream City before going on to appear for seven other teams during a career that spanned 22 seasons.
