Applied to sports teams, a poll (sometimes called a rating) involves an opinion of a team’s performances by someone who is knowledgeable about both the sport involved and the team in question. A poll is therefore an informed opinion and a subsequent ordering of teams based upon this informed opinion. A ranking involves an analysis, either mathematical or statistical, based on the performance of a team and the performances of its opponents.

Kings general manager Vlade Divac, after hearing all the criticism about the DeMarcus Cousins trade, appeared to reveal why the team made the move on Monday. The team held a press conference on Monday to officially announce the trade, and Divac delivered a statement that talked about how “culture” is important in building a winning team, and how much “character matters.” This was clearly a reference to Cousins, who has had his issues with technical fouls and erupting during games.
CLEARWATER, Fla. A couple of weeks ago, I made an off-the-cuff statement that attracted a decent amount of reader email. After an offseason in which the Phillies managed to incrementally upgrade at least two spots in their lineup, they would at least have a chance at finishing in the middle of the National League pack in runs scored at the end of the season.

Going into tonight’s game, some were worried the Jackets would already be in vacation mode with their five-day bye week starting tomorrow. But, for the most part, those watching were pleasantly surprised. The Jackets held pace with the Predators for most of the game, bested them in shots (57.76% score and venue adujsted Corsi for at even strength), clawed back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game, and had landmark nights from two of their highly touted youth…we’ll get to that…but ultimately, it was the mistakes, the turnovers, the bad line changes that cost the Jackets.

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).
