Trail Blazers beat the Jazz 113-104

1-0! Big Night for Dame, I expect these kind of performances all year from our MVP candidate. The man put up an impressive 39, 9 and 6. What a star. Also a nice 25 for C.J. So far, so good. 18 for Allen Crabbe is also a great sign, making it look like a good investment to keep him away from Brooklyn. MVP: Dame Dolla (1) LVP: Mo Harkless (1)     Share this:PrintTweetEmailLike this:Like...

Fox Gives 4 Minutes to Sleep Apnea

What the actual fuck just happened? One minute they’re talking about Jon Lester and the strike-zone tonight, next they’re talking about Mike Napoli’s sleep apnea. I get that it is a real issue, but come on, guys. Did we really need 4 whole minutes about sleep apnea? Amateur hour. That’s the talk you give when you go commercial free between innings not during the bottom half of the 5th inning. I expected this from Smoltz, and Kenny Rosenthal is always a wildcard (much like his bow-tie selection, LOL) but not you Joe Buck. Please, oh please catch my sarcasm...

2016- 2017 Portland Trail Blazers Season Preview

2015-2016 Record: 44-38 Lost in Western Conference Semi-Finals to Golden State Warriors (3-1) Who’s Back: Everyone Who’s New: Evan Turner, Festus Ezeli 2015-2016 Recap: Coming into the 2015 season the Blazers were a projected lotto team with a solid PG named Damian Lillard and few other building blocks. One year later they are one of the hottest young teams in the league. Terry Stotts’ crew sprinted to an impressive 44-38 record behind the heroics of Lillard and running mate C.J McCollum, ultimately becoming one of the darlings of the 2015 NBA season. The Trail Blazers established their identity behind...

B-Frank’s Week 8 NFL Power Rankings

This was easily my hardest week to grade because the NFL has been absolutely awful this year. The quality of play has been so poor and there weren’t any notably entertaining games. Biggest Jump: This week, the Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins jump 6 spots after their wins against Minnesota and Buffalo respectively. Biggest Fall: The Jacksonville Jaguars fall 6 spots after their loss to Oakland. 1. New England Patriots 6-1 Last Week: 1 The Vikings finally lost giving Tom Brady his rightful place at the top of B-Frank’s power rankings. They are easily the class of the league, I’d be...

Cubs vs. Indians World Series Preview

I will be going through each position for the Cubs and Indians and stating which team has the advantage. As an avid Cubs fan it will be hard for me to put my bias aside, but I promise I will do my best. All stats have been obtained from the teams’ respective MLB.com team sites. If you want a more in depth look at the Indians roster, check out Nick Surges’ blog here. Catchers  Cubs: The Cubs have used a platoon approach at catcher for the entire 2016 season, the playoffs included. David Ross will catch Jon Lester, Miguel...

Western Conference Playoff Predictions

Golden State Warriors: Unless Draymond turns on Warriors and starts kicking his own teammates in the nuts, this team will dominate the regular season. While I don’t expect the Warriors to break their own record, most prediction softwares have the Warriors winning upwards of 75 games. Los Angeles Clippers: GM Doc brought the gang back for one more go-around this season, and 50-55 wins seems reasonable for a group that knows each other almost too well. The addition of Mo Speights will bring a much needed frontcourt scoring threat off their bench, but outside of the starting unit, their...

Scouting the Cleveland Indians

I’m still in awe. As I’ve said many times throughout the year and especially here in the playoffs, I have invested every single emotional fiber in my body in to this baseball team. From the moment Jake Arrieta threw the first pitch of the 2016 campaign back on April 4th, I’ve been in complete ride or die mode and I’m sure you have been too. Sit back, take a deep breath, and say out loud to yourself: “The Cubs are going to the World Series”. 71 long years later our Cubbies are back in the Fall Classic. We had...
