NL Central Playoff Race

With only 6 weeks left in the 2017 season, the MLB playoffs are fast approaching. Much to everyone’s surprise, the NL Central playoff race looks like it could come down to the wire. The defending champion Chicago Cubs have not successfully distanced themselves from the competition. Any time it seems like they’re about to heat up and start playing like their former selves they get shut out and lose a series to a sub par ball club. As a Cubs fan it has been an agonizing experience. The Cubs currently have a 1.5 game lead in the division, with...

Butler Basketball Preview Part 2 – Starting Lineup

Butler basketball’s 2016-17 starting lineup consisted of Tyler Wideman as the center, Andrew Chrabascz at power forward, Kelan Martin at small forward (for most of the year), and the guards were a combination of Kethan Savage, Kamar Baldwin, Avery Woodson, and Tyler Lewis. The Dawgs were solid last year. They finished 23-8, good for second in the big east. They were ranked in the top 25 the entire season, upset perennial powerhouse Villanova TWICE, and made a strong run in the NCAA tourney before being ousted by eventual champion, North Carolina. Several Butler players were also awarded individual accolades...

Is Kyle Schwarber Back?

The Cubs young slugger Kyle Schwarber has been mashing the ball ever since his demoralizing trip down to Triple A Iowa. In lieu of Schwarber’s success at the plate, the Cubs have been killing it as well. They are 11-2 since the All Star Break, catapulting into first place in the NL Central. Schwarber is batting .280 since his return. Sure it’s not THAT high, but considering he was batting only around a buck seventy five beforehand, it’s an improvement. Kyle Schwarber in 15 games since returning from Iowa (57 PA):.280/.368/.680, 5 HR, 8 RBI #Cubs — Christopher Kamka...

Butler Basketball Preview Part 1 – Meet the New Dawgs

The Butler Bulldogs finished 23-8, good for 2nd in the Big East. They were knocked out in the sweet sixteen by national champs North Carolina. The Dawgs had a hectic off season, losing head coach Chris Holtmann to Ohio State as well as three assistants. Unfortunately, Butler’s top recruit left with Holtmann as well. He will be referred to as “Benedict Arnold” and we don’t talk about him anymore. The Dawgs also lost a couple of starters and impact role players to graduation. Andrew Chrabascz, Tyler Lewis, Kethan Savage, and Avery Woodson all decided to finish up school and...

What the hell should the Cubs do?

Well, we’re at the All Star Break and the Cubs have been nothing short of brutal in the first half of the season. Sure they’ve had a few positive moments, but overall this has been an utter disappointment. It has given wretched Sox fans the chance to come out of the sewers and make stupid comments like “guess it was a fluke and the Cubs are back to being the shitty Cubs” or preposterous statements like “Rizzo and Bryant are over rated”. I’m not giving up on my Cubbies just yet, I still think they’ll make a run into...
