The 2017 season will go as far as the starting rotation allows it to. That bold statement certainly can, and has, been argued by both fans and pundits this offseason.
Fish and whales feed on plankton, who are incapable of swimming against a current. When a player gets to free agency without a contract, he becomes in effect plankton for teams to feed on at their convenience and their cost. The Nationals have taken this bottom feeding movement to their team building philosophy, and it’s working.

The trade deadline is weeks away. Wait, no, the trade deadline is a week away. The NHL trade deadline is on March 1, 2017 this year and the Boston Bruins have been tied to some major names this season.

After another busy weekend of college hoops the Tournament Bubble ha’s begun to shrink. I comfortably cut 10 teams out of the bubble picture this week, leaving 27 teams battling over the last 10 spots in the field.

SMOOTHIE KING CENTER, NEW ORLEANS, LA — This is a continuation of the halftime recap of the 66th NBA All-Star Game. The West held a 97-92 lead at halftime. Q3: Four Warriors, Russ Gets Hot Stephen Curry yelled on a defensive rebound then fed Kevin Durant , who found Anthony Davis for a reverse slam, to start the second half.
Manager Terry Francona had a difficult decision when tasked with making out his lineup for Game 3 of the 2016 World Series in Chicago. For all of the season prior to that point, Francona had a choice of whether to DH Carlos Santana or Mike Napoli and the other player would man first base, but in the National League park, the DH wasn’t permitted, so who would be the odd man out? Francona, with some obvious trepidation, decided to give Santana a shot in left field for only his second appearance there in his career (he once played four innings in left field in 2012).

It’s been 20 years since the 1997 NBA All-Star game, when we saw Michael Jordan record the first triple-double in All-Star Game history.

When it comes to building a roster and staying under the salary cap, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is head and shoulders above everyone else in the NFL.

Defensive end is a position that stands out as an area of immediate need for the New Orleans Saints going into the 2017 offseason, more specifically the side opposite Cameron Jordan. Jordan ironically said recently he actually wants the team to add some cornerbacks, likely to help give the defensive line those few precious extra seconds to get after the quarterback. I agree with both of those being I love the defensive aspect of football, but I also know how important having the right pieces on offense can be and it all starts up front with the offensive line
