The Cubs rebuild has begun

By Alec Walt The Chicago Cubs entered the Jed Hoyer era earlier this offseason with a roster loaded with question marks. They made the postseason last year, but Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, and Javier Baez hit free agency next offseason. With Baez and Rizzo expected to sign hefty new contracts, whether in Chicago or not, Hoyer needed to make tough decisions for the 2021 roster. It began with non-tendering Kyle Schwarber and continued with trading Yu Darvish to the San

Relegations are coming

By Shawn Dennis The one aspect about soccer leagues that you either agree or disagree with are relegations. Unlike most other professional sports leagues, soccer is unique with the fixture that if you manage to end the season placed in one of the three bottom spots, you’re being sent to the league below the one you’re in. If you’re a Sunderland fan, I apologize for this article in advance. At least you got a Netflix series out of your misfortunes…

What’s Going on in LA?

By Shawn Dennis Where do I begin? Well, the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Los Angeles Clippers by a score of 124-73 on Sunday night. Paul George, Patrick Beverly, Lou Williams, Reggie Jackson, and Nicolas Batum combined for a whopping 27 points, as many as the entire team scored in the first-half. I can’t distinguish what’s more blasphemous for the Los Angeles Clippers: setting the record for the largest half-time deficit or losing by the same amount? Paul George and the

Liverpool’s blowout putting the PL on notice

By Shawn Dennis When you watch the highlights of Liverpool’s away match against Fulham last Sunday, a hand began to hover above the panic button. What arguably should’ve been a defeat for Liverpool was luckily turned into a tie as Mo Salah buried a PK in the 79th minute to squeak out a point. However, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp bounced his team back with a massive 2-1 home victory over their top-ranked rivals Tottenham. As impressive and necessary as that

Extremely Early NBA Predictions

By Shawn Dennis After watching some preseason games over the last few nights, this quick NBA restart has me hyped up for what’s to come. With COVID still not going anywhere anytime soon and the bubble not being used for this upcoming season, some questions arise. How will the rookies play with no summer league and practically three weeks to adjust to their new teammates and coaching staff? How will scheduling pan out if the complications of players testing positive

The New-Look Washington Football Team

By Dan Miccio Let’s be honest, the NFC East seemed like it was, and still is, the worst division in the NFL. That being said, the Washington Football Team has changed the course of the season in the second half of the season.  After starting 2-6 on the season, it looked like this team was going to be just as bad as they had been in 2019. Since then they have gone 4-1, bringing their season record to 6-7 and
