    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/28/10 — Jay Cutler

    There’s a new top dog in the NFC North, and its not a team many were predicting to even finish second in their division when the season began.  That’s right, I’m talking about the Chicago Bears, led by their gutsy and talented young quarterback Jay Cutler.  Cutler wasn’t exactly flashy last night, but he was […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/26/10 — Adrian Peterson

    When Brett Favre came out of retirement, again, right before the season started, most people had Minnesota penciled into the NFC Championship game and even the Super Bowl.  Sure, it might take a few weeks for him to get his rhythm since he missed all of camp, but its Brett Favre, right?  Wrong.  He has […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 9/23/10 – Jacory Harris

    Miami Hurricanes quarterback Jacory Harris may have had a rough week 2 against Ohio State by throwing 4 picks in their 36-24 loss, but last night he acquitted himself very well against rival Pittsburgh. Harris did throw two more interceptions against the Panthers, but he also threw two more touchdowns. That was two more than […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 9/22/10 – Philadelphia Phillies

    The Stat Line of the Night – 9/22/10 – Philadelphia Phillies

    It would be appropriate for the Phillies’ players to answer every question from reporters and fans with, “How Ya Like Me Now?”. Many thought they didn’t have another division title in them this year, but the Phils have proven everyone wrong.  And the Phillies didn’t merely turn up the heat in September — they blasted […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/21/10 — Clayton Richard

    San Diego is in a tight race to win the division right now.  The NL West is completely up for grabs, as the Giants are clinging to a half game lead and it looks like it could come down to the last day of the season.  With that as the backdrop, hopes were not high […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 9/20/10 — Drew Brees

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/20/10 — Drew Brees

    If you tuned into Monday Night Football last night expecting to see a regular football game, you were sorely mistaken.  Last night’s game was a combination of great defense, gutsy offense, and some memorable bloopers.  On the first series of the game, the 49ers back-up center snapped the ball about 12 feet above 9er quarterback […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/19/10 — Matt Schaub

    Neil Rackers hit a game-winning field goal in overtime to give the Texans the win over the Redskins and push their record to 2-0.  Does that make him the hero of the game? Sure it does.  But this article is not about heroes, its about stat lines.  That’s not to say that a player can’t […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 9/16/10 – Minnesota Twins

    The Stat Line of the Night – 9/16/10 – Minnesota Twins

    The Minnesota Twins came to Chicago to play a series with the White Sox with a 6-game lead in the AL Central. If the White Sox swept or won 2 of 3, their would still be a race going on in that division. Instead, the Twins came in and absolutely buried the White Sox and […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 9/15/10 – Troy Tulowitzki

    The Stat Line of the Night – 9/15/10 – Troy Tulowitzki

    Troy Tulowitzki is on a serious hot streak and really wants the Colorado Rockies to be playing playoff baseball come October. Tulo and the Rocks hosted the first place San Diego Padres on Wednesday. Cliche perhaps, but it was a must-win game for the Rockies if they want to have a shot at the division […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 9/14/10 — Shelley Duncan

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/14/10 — Shelley Duncan

    Shelley Duncan doesn’t get the starting nod that often for Cleveland, having only started 49 games this season, but last night he got it and boy did he ever take advantage.  Duncan single-handedly put the Indians on his back to help lead them to a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.  Who […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/14/10 — Derek Lowe

    On the morning after a Monday night, the obvious place to look for a great stat line are the football games, right?  Not last night, as both games did not produce any spectacular performances (outside of the defenses, which did step up big).  In baseball, however, the Atlanta Braves got a much needed win on […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 9/12/10 — Matt Forte

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/12/10 — Matt Forte

    In a Bears-Lions game riddled with controversial calls and decisions yesterday, even the day’s most successful star was not without his blemishes.  Matt Forte had a dominant day for the Bears in a key divisional matchup and helped them overcome a 4 turnover day with his abilities rushing and receiving.  He had some help from his […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 9/9/10 – Drew Brees

    The NFL is back and the world champion New Orleans Saints opened up the new season by hosting Brett Favre — the old man that won’t go away — and the Minnesota Vikings. It wasn’t his best performance, but Drew Brees did enough to get the Saints rolling in their title defense. Brees opened up […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 9/8/10 – Ryan Howard

    The Philadelphia Phillies and the Atlanta Braves are neck and neck in the race to capture the National League East. The Phils hosted the Marlins last night needing a win to maintain their slim lead atop the division. Ryan Howard broke out his whoopin’ stick in a big way. The big man go the Phils […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 9/7/10 — Vernon Wells

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/7/10 — Vernon Wells

    Let’s just say its a bad idea to bet against Vernon Wells when he plays the Texas Rangers.  As the Rangers have found out this year, when Wells and the Blue Jays come to town, it usually spells trouble for them.  He was at it again last night, helping the Jays to an 8-5 victory over the […]
