    Grading Cubs Off-Season Acquisitions

    The Chicago Cubs’ offseason has been rather “splashless” for lack of a better term. The beginning of the Hoyer era is shrouded in uncertainty and an apparent lack of targeted direction for the future. Regardless, they have made some promising, albeit cost-effective, signings in the past few months. The following is my grade on the […] More

    2021 Big East Power Rankings: Volume 6

    A week after handing Villanova its first conference loss on the season, St. John’s choked at Hinkle Fieldhouse in overtime. They’re not the first team riding an impressive win streak to fall to the same fate – Creighton also suffered a head-scratching loss in Indianapolis. Also similar to St. John’s, the Jays downed Villanova at […] More

    2021 Big East Power Rankings: Volume 5

    Villanova is no longer unblemished on the conference season after St. John’s continues to pile up gritty, impressive wins. The Red Storm held the ‘Cats’ normally potent offense to just 59 points en route to an 11-point home win, further strengthening their convincing NCAA-tournament resume in the process. Don’t look now, but St. John’s has […] More

    2021 Big East Power Rankings: Volume 4

    This past week in the Big East saw Villanova and Creighton further separate themselves from the rest of the conference. Villanova did so convincingly. Creighton? Not so much, but two conference road wins are nothing to scoff at. Elsewhere, St. John’s continues to quietly creep up our rankings and owns the conference’s second-longest win streak. […] More

    Carlos Rodon and the Status Quo Are Back

    After months of White Sox fans like me clamoring for the team to add starting pitching depth, they have answered the bell, bringing back familiar face Carlos Rodon on a one year, $3MM deal.  Rodon, the 3rd overall pick of the 2014 draft, and the White Sox had seemingly reached a natural parting point about […] More

    2021 Big East Power Rankings: Volume 3

    Villanova and Seton Hall returned to action this past week after an incredibly long – and a much shorter – break, respectively. Fittingly, they faced off in an exciting contest that went down to the wire. Xavier and Georgetown are the conference’s other two idle teams, but both are scheduled to return to action later […] More

    The Hall of Fame Case for Mark Buehrle

    I suppose I should preface this post by clarifying that I do not, incredibly surprisingly, possess a vote for the Baseball Hall of Fame.  With the Hall of Fame announcing the 2021 class (if anyone hits 75%) later today, I’ve been thinking a lot about who I would put on my ballot.  Most choices are […] More

    At Least Chicago Isn’t Houston

    As a Chicago sports fan, it’s pretty tough sledding. The one exception, of course, are the White Sox, who actually have more than just a glimmer of hope. But if you identify with the Cubs, then there’s really not all that much going for you these days. The Cubs are diving headfirst into a rebuild […] More

    2021 Big East Power Rankings: Volume 2

    This week was the Big East’s most COVID-riddled since conference play started as Villanova, Seton Hall, Xavier, and Georgetown sat idle. On the other side of the coin, St. John’s played three games in a seven-day span, winning their most recent in come-from-behind fashion at UConn. Previously the hottest team in the league, Creighton saw […] More

    The Bears Should Bring Back Lovie Smith

    After a tumultuous year, Bears fans were treated to another rhetoric-filled press conference starring the kings of unwarranted optimism, Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy. As expected, we were left with a plethora of questions and very few straightforward answers. One thing was made very clear, however, that Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace will be back […] More
