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

Guard Spot Could Get Expensive For Saints In Free Agency
I guess it was inevitable, since the Eagles have not had a ticket price increase since 2014, but the timing is questionable after a 7-9 season. The average cost of a ticket is going up $7, from $99 to $106. The biggest ticket price hike will be $15 for some of the lower level seats, while the smallest increase will be $5 per ticket
The New England Patriots may have recently pulled off the largest comeback in Super Bowl history, but they’re not an organization that lives in the moment and is overly satisfied after just one major achievement. Bill Belichick and Co.
Ranking the Patriots’ 20 free agents: Who is most important to retain?
The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the most successful and prolific franchises in all of sports. There is an expectation to win every season for the team from the steel city. So needless to say Sunday night’s 36-17 loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game is a hard pill to swallow
2016-17 Pittsburgh Steelers Offseason Preview
I don’t know exactly how to begin an assessment of Doug Whaley. He might be the toughest person in the organization to evaluate. Should Whaley be fired as general manager after four years (technically just three offseasons) on the job?

Should He Stay or Should He Go: An Evaluation of Doug Whaley by @mmigliore
Jordan Dank, the outfielder formerly of the White Sox and brother of lefty stater John Danks, has been claimed. Not sure why, but then again, I’m not sure about most of Amaro’s roster decisions. Danks is 28 years old and over parts of the last 3 seasons in Chicago he’s hit .227.629 in 180 games

Some Phillies Business
Disclaimer: I wrote about 3,000 words, hit the wrong key stroke, and apparently autosave didn’t work, so it was all erased. I am going to try and type it again, but I can promise you it won’t be as detailed as what I’d written before. Okay, so Jim Salisbury identified 4 teams that were in … Continue reading Thoughts on potential Cole Hamels trades →
Thoughts on potential Cole Hamels trades
*Ken Giles should get some consideration for National League Rookie of the Year. Currently, I believe he’s the 3rd best rookie in the NL this season, trailing only Billy Hamilton of the Reds and Jacob deGroom of the Mets. Giles has appeared in 40 games, racking up 60 strikeouts in 41.2 innings pitched with a sparkling 1.08 ERA and 0.79 WHIP.
Random Thoughts of a Phillies Phan
Here’s a fresh open thread for general discussion. And here’s my #HotTake for the day – Ryne Sandberg should be fired for allowing Burnett to throw that many pitches with a rain delay in the middle when the club is trying to trade him. Six innings of shut-out ball proved the point.
*Bobby Abreu will not make the squad to begin the season. He’s currently “weighing his options”. I would think his only options are to accept a minor league assignment, retire, or play in an unaffiliated league. He hit .263/.823 this spring while playing horrendous defense. *Michael Stutes, already removed from the 40-man roster, has now been released. A few years back, I thought he was a future setup man. Now, he’s just a mess. He ends his time with the Phillies after 3 seasons, 79 games, and a 4.01 ERA in 85.1 innings.
