Why Aren’t the San Francisco Giants Rebuilding?

This piece was originally written in April. There was a time, not too long ago, when the San Francisco Giants were really good. The team was a lock to be in the discussion for October baseball annually, boasting a strong rotation and a lineup that seemed to have a mix of young talent and solid veterans. In fact, the era in question was still active … Continue reading Why Aren’t the San Francisco Giants Rebuilding?

Blue Jays Roster Review — February 2018

This offseason has been crazy. It’s been unlike any recent winter entry when it comes to signings. Eric Hosmer, JD Martinez, Yu Darvish, and many others are still unsigned, so it’s pretty unfair to evaluate each team’s current roster. For the Blue Jays, let’s do it anyway, considering they aren’t favourites to acquire any significant names. Regardless, anything can happen, and this will be updated … Continue reading Blue Jays Roster Review — February 2018

Ranking the Pokémon Generations

Pokémon. It’s a series that’s hugely popular around the world, and it’s been around a long time. I’ve made it no secret that I’m a huge fan of the series.

Today, I’d like to talk about … Continue reading Ranking the Pokémon Generations

The 2017 Fantasy Football Draft Special

Last night, I was watching the movie Draft Day. It’s focused on a fictional version of the 2014 NFL Draft, and followed the story of Cleveland Browns GM Sonny Weaver Jr., played by Kevin Costner.

BROWNE: It’s Time to Halt Homophobia in Sports — and Society

Warning: Homophobic and transphobic slurs, though obscured, are present in this article. We are living in 2017. Same-sex marriage has been legal in Canada since 2005 and the U.S. since 2015. Yet, in other parts of the world — like Indonesia — gay couples are being sentenced to caning as of last week. How…how…is that still okay in 2017? Then we have the last five days in the professional sports landscape. … Continue reading BROWNE: It’s Time to Halt Homophobia in Sports — and Society

Powell Emerging as a Pivotal Piece of Raptors’ Core

Norman Powell has quietly — or, should I say, not so quietly––emerged as one of the Raptors’ best players during the 2017 postseason. Is he in the conversation with Lowry and DeRozan as the Raptors’ best overallplayer? No––not yet, anyway. What he is, though, is becoming one of the key pieces of the Raptors core. That is a pretty strong statement, considering said “core” includes the likes of … Continue reading Powell Emerging as a Pivotal Piece of Raptors’ Core
