    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/13/10 — Ted Lilly

    The Chicago Cubs played their crosstown rivals the Chicago White Sox this weekend.  Although the White Sox took the first two games easily, the final game yesterday would turn out to be far more interesting than the first two.  Ted Lilly took the mound for the Cubs and had an epic duel with the White […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/10/10 – Glen Davis

    Kevin Garnett didn’t have any reasons to make Glen “Big Baby” Davis cry last night as the Celtics took on the Lakers in game 4 of the NBA Finals. From the looks of his performance last night, this ‘Baby’ is all grown up. The Celtics needed game 4 in a bad way, as no team […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/9/10 – Chicago Blackhawks

    Here in Chicago last night, fireworks were crackling, car horns were honking and I think I even heard some banging on pots and pans. It was long overdue. The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1961 with a thrilling overtime victory in Philadelphia, beating the Flyers 4-3. Both teams played […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/8/10 — Stephen Strasburg

    It’s being called the most hyped Major League debut by many people in and around baseball.  Just take a look for yourself, however.  Stephen Strasburg’s minor league games have been televised and every stat of his has been analyzed on ESPN and other national media outlets.  When it was announced that he would be making […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/7/10 – Adrian Gonzalez

    The Phillies and Padres were deadlocked in a 0-0 tie last night in the 7th inning.  Cole Hamels, the Phillies ace, was looking as dominant as ever.  He was carrying a no-hitter into the 7th and even though his team could not score a run, it seemed fairly certain they would win with Hamels looking […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/6/10 — Ray Allen

    The L.A. Lakers were heavy favorites to win the NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics, but Boston had other plans in mind.  While the Celtic Big Three looked more like the Old Three for most of the season, the addition of Rondo to that equation as well as a playoff surge has them playing inspired […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 6/3/10 – Kobe Bryant

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/3/10 – Kobe Bryant

    The rumors of a decline in Kobe Bryant’s play were not just over exaggerated…they were stupid. The 2010 Kobe plays smarter, not necessarily harder. But when Kobe so desires, he can still take it to the rack with the best of them and score the ball. He did that last night in game 1 of […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 6/2/10 – Armando Galarraga

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/2/10 – Armando Galarraga

    Armando Galarraga was just one out away from securing his place in history, one out away from the 21st perfect game in major league baseball. A ground ball was hit to the right side between 1st and 2nd base. It was cleanly fielded by Miguel Cabrera. Galarraga raced to cover first base and received the […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 6/1/10 — Scott Rolen

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/1/10 — Scott Rolen

    Scott Rolen was on the St. Louis Cardinals when they won the World Series in 2006.  In fact, he was an integral part of that team.  His hitting and fielding helped propel the Cards to the Championship.  Unfortunately for Rolen, his injury woes caught up with him the next year and he was traded away. […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 5/31/10 – Ubaldo Jimenez

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/31/10 – Ubaldo Jimenez

    Ubaldo Jimenez has had an unbelievable season this year.  He has looked liked a Cy Young pitcher in every single outing  he’s had.  In just 11 starts, the pitcher has now accumulated a 10-1 record.  He is just the third pitcher to win 10 games in his first 11 starts with an ERA under 1.00 and the […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 5/30/10 – Albert Pujols

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/30/10 – Albert Pujols

    When it comes to hitting home runs, Albert Pujols has somewhat struggled thus far this season, at least by his standards.  Coming into yesterday afternoon’s game, the St. Louis Cardinals first baseman had only managed to hit nine out of the park through the first two months, but a big game against the Chicago Cubs […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 5/27/10 – Kobe Bryant

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/27/10 – Kobe Bryant

    The highlight of the night was actually made possible due to a Kobe Bryant miss. Ron Artest got an offensive rebound from The Black Mamba’s missed three-point attempt and laid it in for a buzzer-beating basket against the Phoenix Suns. But how did the Lakers get to that moment of victory? Kobe doing work. Kobe […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 5/26/10 – Dwight Howard

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/26/10 – Dwight Howard

    Superman isn’t quite ready to spend his summer as Clark Kent. Down 3 games to none in their series against the Boston Celtics, the Orlando Magic were left for dead by most fans and observers. Dwight Howard has a little message for them: not so quick. Howard led the Magic to a 113-92 win in […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 5/25/10 — Ryan Dempster

    The Chicago Cubs have struggled a bit in the early-going this season, but no one ever complained about their starting pitching.  With Ryan Dempster on the mound, the Cubs have reason to be confident about getting a win.  Last night, he delivered again.  Derrek Lee helped out as well. Ryan Dempster was dominant all night […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 5/24/10 – Dwight Howard

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/24/10 – Dwight Howard

    What was once a sure sweep has now become something of a series.  The Boston Celtics won the first 3 games without too much trouble and people were already talking about how great a Boston-LA finals rematch would be.  Hold the phone.  Orlando will not go quietly, and they showed it last night.  Dwight Howard […]
