Injured Packers need win Thursday Night

October 20, 2016

A 30-16 loss at Lambeau Field to the Dak Prescott led Dallas Cowboys has nearly every NFL expert hitting the panic button on the Green Bay Packers. R-E-L-A-X. Aaron Rodgers doesn’t have the offensive line that Prescott has over in Dallas, but that won’t stop one of the best quarterbacks in football. A short week is generally not welcome to NFL teams, however this might be exactly what the Pack needs to erase the memories of their poor performance last Sunday. They’ll have a perfect opportunity... 

Blue Jays hoping Sanchez stays Hot

August 6, 2016

Suddenly the Toronto Blue Jays are in the lead of the American League East. They seemingly came out of nowhere as most of the season there’s been a battle between the Baltimore Orioles and the Boston Red Sox. Before the season began most MLB experts had Boston and Baltimore tabbed as the favorites to win the division. With the Orioles inconsistency and Boston’s recent collapse, the Jays have managed to move up the East without having to dominate. They send Aaron Sanchez and his 11-1 record to... 

Porcello goes for 14th Win against Angels

July 29, 2016

Rick Porcello is somewhat quietly having a Cy Young type of season. Porcello didn’t live up to expectations for the Boston Red Sox when he was acquired last season as he went 9-15 with an earned run average close to 5.00. The reason why so many baseball experts were high on the Sox prior to the start of this season was because they anticipated much more from their pitching staff, and that’s what has happened. Averaging a 4.31 ERA through a 7 year career in the American League is respectable,... 

Red Sox hoping Pomeranz can be the Answer

July 25, 2016

Drew Pomeranz first start with the Boston Red Sox was now what he or the team was hoping for. He allowed 5 runs in just 3 innings, but the Red Sox offense once again saved the day as they scored 11 times to beat the San Francisco Giants last Wednesday. Pomeranz had not been on many baseball experts radar until his solid start to the 2016 season. A win/loss record of 8-7 would never be enough to draw attention. However, he somehow had a winning mark with a Padres squad that had the worst record in... 

Strasburg looks to remain undefeated against Dodgers

July 21, 2016

It’s hard to believe that a player that was as highly touted as Stephen Strasburg has actually flown under the radar for so long. He came into the league with more anticipation than any pitcher had in 20+ years, and somehow he managed to live up to the hype. Baseball experts expected him to completely dominate batters with his wide variety of “plus pitches”, yet injuries have slowed him down to the point where he hadn’t been in the discussion of best pitchers in the game for several years.... 

Boston looks for Sweep in Bronx

July 17, 2016

There hasn’t been much of a rivalry between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees this year. Boston has taken 6 of the first 8 meeting thus far, and are poised to make it another sweep Sunday night as they send their “Ace” David Price to the mound in New York. MLB experts didn’t give the Bombers much of a chance this season as they don’t have a clear-cut superstar on the roster, and have several veterans that are well past their prime. It is yet to be seen whether or not the Yankees will... 

Cubs play a Huge Role in All Star Game

July 12, 2016

Of all the professional sports in the country, baseball’s All-Star game is the only that has some real significance. Since 2003 the winning league of the All-Star game has been given home field advantage in the World Series which is why in the most meaningful. Any baseball expert will tell you that having a potential 7th game at home gives that team a decided advantage. This year, perhaps more than any other, the fate of a league could be decided by one specific team. The Chicago Cubs had 5 position... 

MadBum faces Rockies bats in San Francisco

July 5, 2016

Clayton Kershaw is regarded as the best pitcher in baseball, with Jake Arietta a close second. However, somehow we have all forgotten about how dominating Madison Bumgarner can be. It’s almost like he’s taken attention away from himself as a pitcher with his hitting prowess. Any baseball expert will tell you that he’s as good of a hitter as you’ll see at his position, but he shouldn’t be overlooked as one of the most consistent, overpowering and smartest starting pitchers of his generation. He’ll... 

Tillman pushes his luck against Mariners Thursday

June 30, 2016

Wins and losses are sometimes the most misleading statistic for pitchers. Ask Seattle “Ace” Felix Hernandez who has been one of the best starters in baseball since he came into the league in 2005. He has a career earned run average of just over 3.00 (which is outstanding), yet his overall record is 147-105 when he should really be inching close to his 200th win had he played on better teams. MLB experts had mixed opinions about how the Baltimore Orioles would do this year, but Chris Tillman and... 

Sabathia battles Rangers Tuesday Night

June 28, 2016

If the New York Yankees are going to contend in the American League East, they’ll need to get their starting rotation squared away. MLB experts didn’t put much faith in the Bombers coming into the year as they expected them to come in 4th place in their division. However, some of their older bats have come alive, and they have received more than expected out of some of their pitchers, namely C.C. Sabathia. Sabathia will take the mound Tuesday afternoon with the hopes of gaining just his 6th win...
