    The Stat Line of the Night — 5/23/10 — Amare Stoudemire

    Amare Stoudemire is considered one of the best big men in the game, but his lack of focus has been roundly criticized for most of his career.  Once in a while though, he silences the critics.  Even though his defense is sorely lacking at times, he can make up for it with an amazing ability […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/20/10 – Carlos Pena

    The bad news for Tampa Bay Rays fans is that power-slugging first baseman Carlos Pena has been fairly awful so far in 2010. The good news is that going into last night’s game against the Yankees, the Rays were still in first place by four games over the hated Yankees. The other good news? Pena […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/19/10 – Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol was like Visa in last night’s Lakers vs. Suns game: everywhere you want to be. Gasol was money all night long, but he turned it up a notch during the 4th quarter. The Suns and Lakers were tied at 90 going into the final quarter. That’s when Gasol took over. He scored 14 […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 5/18/10 — Josh Johnson

    There have been a lot of distractions surrounding the Marlins lately, but that hasn’t seemed to affect their ability to win.  With Hanley Ramirez benched due to “lack of effort”, Florida was able to pull off the win against the Arizona Diamondbacks with some help from their starting pitcher Josh Johnson.  Although All-Star Hanley’s benching […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/17/10 – Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant’s health has been called into question entering the Western Conference Finals in the NBA Playoffs.  It appears that the question has been answered: No problem.  Sporting a yellow knee brace in last night’s game, Bryant was able to play through the pain in a dominant performance that led his Lakers to a 128-107 […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 5/16/10 — Joel Pineiro

    When the Angels won 5 division titles in 6 years, they had some great hitting, sure, but the real key was always their superb starting pitching.  Although the beginning of the season has been shaky at best for the Angels, its starting pitching that could bring them around in a relatively tough AL West.  Joel […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/13/10 – Rajon Rondo

    Last night the NBA playoffs said goodbye to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Which in turn means that come July LeBron will likely be saying goodbye to Cleveland. The Celtics only care about the former. They chewed up and spit out the Cavs winning the series 4 games to 2. In game 6, Rajon […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/12/10- Montreal Canadiens

    So long, Sidney. Shine up those golf clubs, Evgeni Malkin. Take that vacation you’ve always wanted, Billy Guerin. You and the rest of the Penguins can go do whatever you want, including watching the rest of the NHL playoffs from home. The Montreal Canadiens scored early and often in game 7 against the Pens and […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/11/10 – Paul Pierce

    With the best-of-seven series between the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers tied at 2-2, Game 5 Tuesday night was critical for both teams.  The last thing LeBron James and the Cavs wanted was to be traveling to Boston for game six with their playoff lives on the line, but Paul Pierce’s performance would help […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/10/10 – Tommy Hanson

    The Atlanta Braves have gotten off to a pretty slow start.  The pitching has been decent, but the bats just have been unable to come alive so far.  If the hitting won’t come around, then it looks like the pitchers are going to have to take the games almost entirely into their own hands.  Braves […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 5/9/10 — Rajon Rondo

    The Stat Line of the Night — 5/9/10 — Rajon Rondo

    One of the best playoff performances in Boston playoff history occurred last night.  It wasn’t from Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, or Kevin Garnett, though.  It was from Rajon Rondo, the young point guard who isn’t included in the “Big Three” discussion even though he had an all-star caliber season.  Rondo single-handedly led his team to […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 5/6/10 – Johan Franzen

    With their backs against the wall and elimination staring them in the face, the Detroit Red Wings needed to come out firing last night at Joe Louis Arena if they wanted to avoid being swept from the playoffs in front of their hometown fans.  They did just that, and it was none other than the […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 5/4/10 — Kobe Bryant

    The Jazz are in all kinds of trouble in their Western Conference Playoff series with the Lakers.  Boozer and Millsap are playing as well as they can, but the Lakers big men just seem dominant.  The man that is getting to the basket at will, however, is a man the Jazz have never really been […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/3/10 – Jake Peavy

    Going into the 2010 baseball season, the White Sox felt confident that they had one of the best, if not the best, pitching rotations in the American League.  Hell, it might have been the best in all baseball.  The only problem is that their great starting pitchers haven’t been pitching well, and Jake Peavy is […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 5/3/10 – Jaroslav Halak

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/3/10 – Jaroslav Halak

    During the opening round of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, it was the performance of goalie Jaroslav Halak which was largely responsible for the Montreal Canadiens improbable upset victory over the top-seeded Washington Capitals.  After taking a beating at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game one of their second round series, it became […]
