Instead, they’ll face the middle of the Twins’ rotation. Let’s break it down: Game one CC Sabathia has pitching duties...

10 Thoughts on the Lucic-Neal Trade

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports The ramifications of a rare trade between Alberta rivals The Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers sent shockwaves across the hockey world and all of Alberta on Friday afternoon when the teams swapped Milan Lucic for James Neal. Edmonton retained $750,000 of money on Lucic, and included a conditional third round pick in the deal. Here are ten thoughts I had regarding the trade: 1. Calgary gets Tougher/Grittier I’d like to note that I’ve never been someone who has wanted grit for the sake of grit. With that being said, the Flames have been a team that has...

Cubs roster move: Carl Edwards Jr. to Iowa, Rowan Wick recalled

Brian Cassella/Chicago Tribune/TNS via CJ had a bad outing Sunday and he’s headed back to the minor leagues. Carl Edwards Jr. has had a rough year.

One thing the Cowboys absolutely have to change in 2019 is how they handle the third quarter

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports The Cowboys conservative nature needs to be a thing of the past. Over the weekend I finally got some time to dive in to Warren Sharp’s 2019 Football Preview. It’s a must-have in my opinion and sheds some light on a ton of interesting things across the National Football League as we get closer to the season’s beginning. Sharp is one of the brighter, and more analytically-driven, minds in football media these days, he’s so heavily focused on data and in the business of football teams handling things as efficiently and intelligently as possible.

Better Know A Freshman: Quentin Skinner

Student Sports Buford, Ga. continues its LSU long snapper pipeline. They always say you have a great long snapper on your team when you don’t know his name. It’s a position that is as routine as it gets, until a bad snap costs you points or a troubled punt. A lot of colleges gain a reputation for producing players at a specific position, like LSU and their “DBU” moniker. Well, Buford High School in Georgia may be able to boast they have turned into a pipeline. The Story There really is not much to the recruitment of Skinner.
