The Astros and the Scott Feldman Effect

|

Last week the Houston Astros confirmed the foregone conclusion that new team member Scott Feldman would be the Opening Day starter vs. the New York Yankees. 2014 will mark the sinker-baller’s second Opening Day start of his career, the first coming four years prior as a Texas Ranger. The Astros signed Feldman, 31, to a three-year […] READ MORE


Mavericks got 99 Problems Just Not #41

|

Last night –  in what will officially go in the books as a professional basketball game – something happened halfway through the third quarter that frustrated me so much I took a video and sent it to a friend. I cannot attach it though because of the language I opted for in a boiling ball […] READ MORE


Timberwolves Still Suffering from Wrath of Kahn

|

Last night in a game that held much importance in the Western Conference playoff race held even more intrigue well beyond the four quarters. The Minnesota Timberwolves, without Kevin Martin and Nikola Pekovic, picked up arguably their biggest win of the season in Phoenix against the Suns, who themselves are without Eric Bledsoe and also don’t have Kevin Love on their side.

The Excitement of Opening Day is Almost Here

|

There are few things better than a daytime baseball game. One of those is an afternoon baseball doubleheader. Two of the best days of my life have been hosted by such an event.

Tonight the Dallas Mavericks, winners in eight of their last ten games (and actually have lost ground in the Western Conference playoff race) play at the esteemed Madison Square Garden against the not-so-esteemed New York Knicks, winners of only two of their last ten and who find themselves a New York sized 5.5 games back […] READ MORE

Remember the magical three day weekends in high school? On the short list of things I miss about the forgettable four years of high school, the extended weekends are at the top of the list, with going home for lunch, turning on NBA 2K10 (in 2012 because my association team was irreplaceable) and never going […] READ MORE


MLB Prospect Interview: Billy McKinney

|

When I was younger, my best sport was baseball. I say that because each school week I didn’t wait until Friday’s bell.  For me, my school bell was Saturday’s early morning alarm clock buzzer, indicating it was time to hop into dad’s car and head out to field #8. I needed time to run through […] READ MORE


NBA Trade Deadliner Headliner

Tonight the rebuilding and VERY young Utah Jazz visit the American Airlines Center for the second time this year. Back in November the Mavericks took advantage of an extremely depleted Utah team that featured Marvin Williams as the Jazz leading scorer and jumped out to a 24-point halftime lead. Of course it was a five point game […] READ MORE


Astros Still With Many Position Battles

|

Now, our operation is small, but there’s a lot of potential for…aggressive expansion. So, which one of you fine gentlemen would like to join our team? Oh, but there’s only [so many] spot(s) open right now, so we’re gonna have…Tryouts! Here’s to hoping you know where that’s from. But hey, sports! Last season the Houston […] READ MORE


Dirk to Mavs: Help Wanted

|

We, the Dallas Mavericks, could use some help. We of course, excluding the 35-year old who was just named to his 12th All-Star Game. In the Mavericks’ most recent crusher, a 117-115 loss at home against the James Harden-less Houston Rockets, more of the same was on hand for Dallas, who’s margin of holding onto […] READ MORE
