“He told me if he were young and eager, he probably would tell everybody he could play. But he’s a little smarter now and he’s being cautious.”

I first wrote an article like this in 2014. I went 3/5, which is really good considering the nature of these bold predictions are meant to be unlikely to come true. In 2015, I went 1/5, which isn’t so good.

As we get closer to the draft (and as free agency winds down) I will be putting out a few mock drafts. Each time I will go through the process 3 times, with a full 7 round mock once, and each time operating under the rule that I must make different selections each time. Of course I will still make decisions based upon the Saints realistic needs and will prioritize the biggest weak areas of the roster over others

Out of the Park Developments, an official licensee of MLB.com, the MLBPA, and MiLB.com, today announced Out of the Park Baseball 18 will have a “digital cover” for the first time in its illustrious history. Instead of choosing a single player, however, OOTP 18 will be represented by a “Perfect Team” of the 11 best players at each position – plus a manager – to celebrate the launch of the followup to the Metacritic 2016 PC Game of the Year. “As a deep strategy game, we feel that nothing better represents what Out of the Park Baseball is about than putting the best possible team on our first-ever digital cover,” said lead developer, lifelong baseball fan, and Out of the Park Developments CEO Markus Heinsohn
Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has never been afraid to speak his mind. Popovich is known for his curt in-game interviews, but he has regularly criticized President Trump and his supporters in lengthy statements to the media. Before Monday’s game against the Pacers, Popovich was asked about the perspective he gained from growing up near the African-American community of Gary, Indiana, and the Air Force Academy graduate took the opportunity to speak about President Trump again.
It’s not a secret: the Twins have been very bad for about 5 years now, and in that time, the pitching has been very bad. While there has been a lot of attention paid to the fact that the team doesn’t have any elite, top end starters, the thing that sets them from mediocre to bad is their stunning lack of depth. The remarkably poor rotation has created an undue strain on the bullpen, rendering that unit useless as well. When the Twins were without Johan Santana, they were successful behind inning eaters like Brad Radke, Carlos Silva, Carl Pavano and many others, because the bullpen remained crisp and effective.

Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett made a promise that he kept after Sunday’s AFC Championship game win over the Steelers. Bennett vowed that he was going to go home and bake a “You’re awesome!” cake, and everyone thought it was just hyperbole. Bennett proved them wrong.
The AFC Championship game will feature two quarterbacks that have combined to win six Super Bowls- Ben Roethlisberger and Tom Brady . Brady will be playing in his 11th conference championship game in 15 years as a starting quarterback, something that is unheard of in today’s NFL, and honestly, might never be heard from again, ever.

For over a decade, no topic in hockey has been more polarizing than fighting’s place in the game. While some support it, others cite perceptions about safety concerns and hockey’s image as reasons against it. The subject has been discussed by hockey commentators, executives at all levels and medical doctors, but until now, the most important voice has been left out of that discussion — the players.
