The Jets are the worst New York football team this year…which is saying something.  Wasting away at the bottom of the AFC East at a measly 2-8, the Jets need to make some moves.  They began to address their serious talent deficiency with a trade for Percy Harvin, but the Jets’ woes go deeper.  This…

Between the World Cup, the World Baseball Classic, and FIBA, watching some of our favorite sports in foreign venues has become commonplace.  But there’s still something exotic about the NFL London Games, or the “NFL International Series”, that sets international football apart.  Maybe it’s because, unlike the increasingly international baseball and basketball, football has always…

As I write this, the three undefeated teams in the NBA are the Houston Rockets, Memphis Grizzlies, and Golden State Warriors.  Lebron James and the Cavaliers are 1-2, the Thunder are 1-4, and the Pacers are 1-3.  We’re barely a week into the season, but so far little has gone as expected.  Somehow, the anticipated…

The new Lebron James Beats commercial concludes with a voice-over from his mother: “Don’t ever forget where you came from.”  But, of course, that’s not what she really means.  A more accurate assertion would have been, “Don’t forget where you came from, as long as it’s convenient for you.”  Lebron James is not a bad…

Following Wednesday’s victory, the Royals will return to the World Series for the first time since the 1985.  Both NLCS teams, on the other hand, have been World Series regulars.  The Giants won it all in 2010.  A year later, the Cardinals took their spot as World Champions.  In 2012, the Giants and Cardinals faced…

Kershaw, Scherzer, Verlander, Price, Shields, Lester, Bumgarner, Strasburg.  These are some of the biggest names in baseball.  But something separates these guys from a Cabrera or a Trout.  Sure, they’re pitchers, but they’re more than that.  They’re aces.  When October rolls along, aces take on an entirely new role.  They go from pitching once every…

This will be the last season for one of the most loyal players in the Major Leagues.  This American League captain proudly donned his pinstripe jersey through thick and thin.  It has long been decided that his club will retire his number.  I’m talking, of course, about Paul Konerko. Derek Jeter’s farewell tour has created…

October is just days away, and that means that the MLB playoffs are almost here. The playoffs consist of a few precious weeks of nail-biting for all, heartbreak for most, and eternal glory for a lucky few. A grueling season of 162 games can culminate in a single at-bat, and we bask in every second…

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig will close his office door for the last time on January 24th, 2015.  This means that the 2015 MLB season will see a new commissioner for the first time since 1992.  Selig will be replaced by Rob Manfred, former Executive Vice President of Economics and League Affairs and, more recently, Chief…
