5 NFL Playoff Contenders that should Sign Gerald McCoy

Any NFL team that was unhappy with its pass rush got good news Monday night when long-time Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy was released for salary cap reasons, putting the still-productive interior pass rusher on the open market. Because NFL teams can never have enough pass rushers on the roster, the market for McCoy’s services should […]

Snapshots From a Day in the Life of the Rays’ Defense

By Mark Simon, Sports Info Solutions From the first time you go to a game, you’re taught to watch baseball in a specific way. You put the pitcher and batter in your line of sight and the rest of the field in your peripheral vision. When the batter hits the ball, you shift your focus […]

2019 MLB draft profile: 2B Chase Strumpf is an advanced hitter that could move quickly

The Detroit Tigers don’t often draft players like Chase Strumpf. Normally a club to go after shortstops, catchers, and outfielders when they are not drafting hard-throwing pitchers, the Tigers broke from their mold when they took second baseman Kody Clemens with their third round pick back in 2018. How out of character was this for them? The […]

CBS Sports Names Pass Catchers as Seahawks’ Fatal Flaw for 2019 Season

Will Brinson of CBS Sports compiled an article listing a “fatal flaw” for every NFL team as we approach a brand new season. Some examples include the Minnesota Vikings’ offensive line, the quarterback position for the Tennessee Titans, and “Father Time” for the New England Patriots. This is a Seattle Seahawks site first and foremost, so […]

Top rookies, storylines and the best (and worst) of the first quarter of season

Everything about Braves right-hander Mike Soroka is a little funky. He’s Canadian, for starters. That’s a rarity. Only eight Canadians have played in the majors this season, and that’s if you generously include Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who was born in Montreal. Soroka has an unusual delivery, in which he tilts back with his upper body as he brings […]

How the Giants can improve the running game in 2019

Eli Manning. Daniel Jones. Alex Tanney. Whoever is at quarterback probably isn’t going to change the fact the New York Giants want to run the ball. In 2018, the Giants ended the season as one of the most pass-heavy offenses in the league — 64 percent pass, which was the fifth-highest rate in the league per Sharp Football Stats […]

Watchers on the Wall: Welcome to the Golden Age of the Home Run Robbery

On May 8 in Baltimore, Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. made the kind of catch that keeps a player in the lineup even when he’s spent the season sabotaging his team at the plate. A spring game against the Orioles isn’t a formula for high drama, and many of the 12,451 fans officially in attendance […]

Can Giants ‘Reach Pick’ Daniel Jones Actually Succeed in the NFL?

The concept of the “reach pick” in draft value assessment is a fascinating one. When we speak of a reach pick, we’re generally saying that a team selected a player far higher than his talent indicates. This, of course, doesn’t factor scheme and personnel into the equation; it’s more about player traits in a vacuum […]

Ranking the best outfield arms in the majors right now

What are we looking for when we look for the best current outfield arms in baseball? In the end, effectiveness trumps all, right? You want your outfielders to get results, whether it be throwing someone out or deterring them from running at all. Strength doesn’t mean anything if you’re constantly overthrowing your teammates. “What I want to […]

Cardinals Get Kliff Kingsbury Some Weapons

The moment he got off the phone with second-round pick Andy Isabella during draft weekend, Kliff Kingsbury clapped five times and let out an excited scream. The Cardinals coach is known for his offensive ingenuity, but even the brightest football minds will be handcuffed without talent. General Manager Steve Keim attempted to rectify that last […]
