Peter King: Just Take It Easy, Man

Peter King is notorious for constantly complaining, but this is one of the more outrageous tweets I’ve seen in a long time. Competitive eating is sinful? Just calm down dude, we’re talking about guys eating boiled meat in buns, not fucking murder.

Taking a Deeper Look at the Yankees’ Grooming Policy

The Yankees’ long-standing hair policy was making waves on Twitter on Monday after some comments from former Yankee Andrew McCutchen. McCutchen was only here for the second half of 2018, but he’s an awesome dude and quickly became a fan favorite.

Why Every NFL Team’s Name is Offensive

So the Washington Redskins are finally changing their team name, which has been a long time coming. It’s probably one of those things where our kids will shockingly ask us someday “wait, there was actually a team called the Redskins?” Although it’s taken them awhile, good on them for finally changing it. Since many people took offense to the Redskins, it got me thinking: how many other NFL team names could be considered offensive? Every single team, if you truly try hard enough.

Do I Have A Crush On Giancarlo Stanton?

Giancarlo Stanton has not reached expectations so far as a Yankee. Injuries really have set back Stanton and hindered his play throughout his tenure with the Yanks. I know many Yankees fans have become restless when it comes too Stanton, however, I still love the guy. Stanton can do no wrong to me, even after drilling Tanaka in the head with a piss missile off his bat this past weekend. I don’t know how Tanaka is alive let alone how he was smiling later that day in the hospital.Of course when Stanton is healthy, he takes it into his own hands to pass his injury bug on to his teammates.

Bryson’s Bombs Lead to Victory at Rocket MortGage Championship

This weekend we witnessed one of the most intriguing players on the PGA Tour do his thing. Bryson DeChambeau has been on fire since golf has resumed, with multiple top 10 finishes. This weekend at the Rocket Mortgage Championship he finally put everything together and left with the W. I’m a new golf fan, (especially with the lack of sports going on), and Bryson is still one of the most insane athletes I have come across.

Stephen A. Thinks NBA Players Are Too Horny To Stay In Orlando Bubble

Stephen A truly is the best. 95% of ESPN content is hot garbage nowadays, but that man will always be box office entertainment. He also has a point here: are NBA players really going to stay quarantined for weeks or months at a time to play basketball?

A Comprehensive Look at Brian Cashman’s Starting Pitching Moves

Brian Cashman is the longest-tenured GM in baseball. After starting as an intern in 1986 and being promoted to assistant GM in 1992, Cashman was named the General Manager prior to the 1998 season. He was reluctant to take the job, as he knew that George Steinbrenner had a history of firing people in power positions any given moment. Luckily for Cashman, the Yankees went on to win the World Series in his first three seasons at the helm.

In the twenty seasons since the Yanks’ 2000 World Series victory, Cashman’s teams have experienced multiple phases with varying levels of success. The 2001-07 seasons were littered with playoff disappointment. The free agency splurge ahead of the 2009 season produced a title immediately, but that core failed to win it all again. The 2013-16 teams were a pathetic group of aging veterans that appeared in only one playoff game. And finally, Aaron Judge helped usher in the “Baby Bombers” era with a team that came within one game of the World Series in 2017.

60 Reasons to Get Excited for MLB’s 60 Game Season

  1. Every Game Matters

With the season being just 60 games instead of the usual 162, teams won’t get the chance to mail it in if they’re losing a game. This season isn’t a marathon, it’s a sprint.

2. Old Faces in New Places

Among other moves, World Series hero Anthony Rendon switched leagues and signed with the Angels, Gerrit Cole left the Astros for the rival Yankees, and the Red Sox traded former MVP Mookie Betts to the Dodgers.

3. Mike Trout Doing Mike Trout Things

4. The DH in the National League

Boston Red Sox: Will the Rivalry Be Renewed in 2020?

After the Sox handled the Yankees in the 2018 ALDS, they were a completely different team in 2019. A combination of injuries and an ineffective pitching staff led to the Sox winning 24 less games than they did the year before, as the Yankees coasted to a 14-5 regular season record against them. After trading Mookie Betts and David Price and losing ace Chris Sale to Tommy John surgery, will this year’s group be able to bring back some firepower to the rivalry?
