641. Presents: 2019 Fantasy Football Draft Special

Well, things have changed in the NFL. Yes, things always change quickly in the NFL. Doesn’t it seem, though, this year, even more than usual has changed? Aaron Rodgers wasn’t the best quarterback last season, and he’s not the top quarterback going into this year. The same goes for Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown for running back and wide receiver respectively – and neither plays … Continue reading 641. Presents: 2019 Fantasy Football Draft Special

MELBOURNE: Red Bull Is Exercising Patience With Gasly – But How Long Can This Last?

Unfortunately for Pierre Gasly, the 2019 Formula One season has been a bit of a nightmare. Not just for him. It would be untruthful to say that Gasly is the only one that’s been having a bad year in this group of twenty drivers. However, that’s unlikely to make him feel much better. Performance in Formula One is a tricky thing to evaluate. It’s not … Continue reading MELBOURNE: Red Bull Is Exercising Patience With Gasly – But How Long Can This Last?

MELBOURNE: Fan Excitement from NBA and NHL Free Agency Proves That MLB’s Dated Offseason Needs an Overhaul

It’s been a common sentiment over the last few Major League Baseball offseasons. Free Agency isn’t really working. It’s not working for the fans, it’s not working for the players, it’s not working for the agents, and it’s not even an ideal scenario for the teams. It’s just not working. On June 27th, Craig Kimbrel made his 2019 debut for the Chicago Cubs. Kimbrel was … Continue reading MELBOURNE: Fan Excitement from NBA and NHL Free Agency Proves That MLB’s Dated Offseason Needs an Overhaul

Driver Grades for the 2019 Formula One Season: After the Austrian Grand Prix

The Austrian Grand Prix has come and gone, and with Silverstone coming up next, it’s time to see how each driver has performed so far this year.

MELBOURNE: MLB’s All Star Game “Election” Format is Probably Here to Stay, Despite Mixed Reaction

Hey, they tried something new. It surely made a lot of money, since it drove voters to MLB.com and Google.com repeatedly instead of once. It’s almost certainly going to return for a sophomore attempt in 2020. It’s a great system for Major League Baseball, and it’s a great system for Google, a company that’s worked closely with the league for a while now. It’s just … Continue reading MELBOURNE: MLB’s All Star Game “Election” Format is Probably Here to Stay, Despite Mixed Reaction

MELBOURNE: Change is Desperately Needed in Formula One – And There’s Nothing Anyone Can Do Right Now

There’s nothing wrong with considering the modern era of Formula One boring. In fact, calling it boring is the only thing that will keep Liberty Media on their toes. It’s the only thing that will prevent the sport from continuing down the current road from which it’s currently stumbling down awkwardly. 2019 was supposed to be a definitive year for the most spectacular league in … Continue reading MELBOURNE: Change is Desperately Needed in Formula One – And There’s Nothing Anyone Can Do Right Now

Looking Back at the Toronto Blue Jays of 2009

The first thing that stands out when looking back at the Toronto Blue Jays teams of the mid-2000’s is the jersey choices. Silver! Black! A logo that’s “modern!” Love them or hate them, they’re a part of the team’s history. In this case, they’re a part of the 2009 team. Similar to the team’s situation now, the Blue Jays had moved on from John Gibbons. … Continue reading Looking Back at the Toronto Blue Jays of 2009

#RightNow: Stoffel Vandoorne Struggles in Formula E Debut

It’s hard to guess what an athlete is thinking, but it’s a safe assumption that it wasn’t the debut Stoffel Vandoorne was hoping for in ABB Formula E. Vandoorne, only a couple weeks removed from his final Formula 1 race with McLaren, qualified very well  – he started fourth on the grid. Unfortunately for the 26-year old, issues throughout the race held him to a … Continue reading #RightNow: Stoffel Vandoorne Struggles in Formula E Debut
