    The Detroit Tigers entered the 2012 season not only as heavy favorites to win the AL Central, but also as a popular pick to win the World Series.  However, they entered last night’s game against the Oakland Athletics 3 games back of the White Sox for first in the AL Central, 5.5 games back in the Wild […]

    The Philadelphia Phillies entered the 2012 MLB season with the highest of expectations, but they have failed to live up to those expectations, as they were one game below the .500 mark heading into last night’s game against the New York Mets.  But despite their struggles, they were still only four games back of the […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/16/12 — Reggie Bush

    After struggling through injuries during his first five years in the league with New Orleans, most people had dismissed the possibility of Reggie Bush being an every-down back in the NFL.  But the 2006 second-overall draft pick is healthy and he’s proving his doubters wrong, as he currently sits in second in the NFL in […]

    The Green Bay Packers’ defence has owned Jay Cutler during his tenure with the Chicago Bears, and their domination over the 29-year-old quarterback continued on Thursday night. Leading the way was none other than the Packers’ Pro Bowl linebacker, Clay Matthews , who harassed the Bears signal-caller to the tune of 3.5 sacks, four quarterback hits, […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/12/12 — A.J. Griffin

    The Oakland Athletics have been quite the pleasant surprise this season, and the same can certainly be said about their 24-year-old starting pitcher, A.J. Griffin. While the A’s entered last night’s game with an impressive 81-60 record (good enough for sole possession of the first AL Wild Card spot), Griffin entered the contest with an […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/11/12 — J.J. Hardy

    Heading into last night’s MLB action, the Baltimore Orioles found themselves in a highly unlikely position, as they were one game up on the Tampa Bay Rays for the final wild card spot in the American League, while sitting just one game back of the New York Yankees for top spot in the AL East […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/10/12 — Joe Flacco

    Despite bringing his team to the AFC Championship twice during his four-year tenure as the starting quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens, Joe Flacco still has his fair share of doubters.  And while a solid performance during week one of the regular season surely isn’t enough to change the minds of all of his naysayers, his […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/9/12 — B.J. Upton

      On most occasions, Jake Shields’ complete-game, two-hit shutout performance would easily be enough to earn him “Stat Line of the Night” honors, but on Sunday, it wasn’t even the most impressive performance from his own team, thanks to B.J. Upton’s terrific outing at the plate. Upton was a force to be reckoned with, as he belted […]

      One week after giving up a total of 204 yards on the ground during a loss to Youngstown State, the Pittsburgh Panthers’ inability to defend the run continued on Thursday night, as they surrendered a total of 256 yards on the ground to their Big East rivals, the Cincinnati Bearcats.  And leading the Bearcats’ […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/5/12 — Kevin Ogletree

      Entering yesterday’s 2012 NFL season opener against the New York Giants, much of the talk surrounding the Dallas Cowboys was regarding the availability of their receivers.  Would Jason Witten be able to suit up despite suffering a serious spleen injury during the preseason?  Would Miles Austin’s injured hamstring prevent him from making an impact? […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/4/12 — Adam LaRoche

      Most of us figured the Washington Nationals would be better in 2012, but few may have expected them to be as dominant as they have been this late in the season.  In addition to leading the NL East by a whopping 7.5 games over the Atlanta Braves, the Nats have also put together a […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/3/12 — Kris Medlen

      This Kris Medlen guy is really something. The Braves’ 26-year-old pitcher entered yesterday’s game against the Colorado Rockies with a 28.1-inning scoreless streak intact, and while that streak would eventually end at 34.2 innings, Medlen’s streak of not allowing an earned run against is still alive and well, at a remarkable 37.1 innings. Medlen […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/30/12 — Edwin Jackson

      The Washington Nationals have a plethora of talented starting pitchers.  Those that easily come to mind are Stephen Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez, but we also shouldn’t forget about Edwin Jackson.  And for those who have forgotten about him, he was kind enough to provide us all with a simple reminder via a terriffic performance […]

      The Toronto Blue Jays have been hit hard with injuries this season, and it has shown, as they were once contending for an AL Wild Card spot, but have since fallen to 13 games below .500 without the likes of Jose Bautista and Brett Lawrie in the lineup.  It has been hard for the team to […]

    During the 90s, the Atlanta Braves’ pitching staff dominated the NL Cy Young voting, winning the award a total of seven times between 1991 and 1998.  However, the organization hasn’t produced another Cy Young winner since Tom Glavine won the award in 1998.  They have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of an arm that is […]
