The Hypocrisy of the Draft Scouting

Reading Time: < 1 minuteJustin Fields, for some reason, has fallen down on draft boards. Trying to find a reason for this, I found a major discrepancy within NFL Draft Expert’s reasoning. The issue? College. College decisions matter more than ever for a draft prospect’s, well, prospects. Let’s look at an example. Justin Herbert was regarded as a future bust, with PFF going as far to say that he would get someone fired. However, this was clearly not the case, as Herbert was the offensive rookie of the year with the Chargers. So why was Herbert a popular bust prediction?...

Baseball’s Next Dynasty: The Seattle Mariners

Reading Time: 2 minutesThe Seattle Mariners have never won a World Series. In fact, They’ve never even been to a World Series. In 2001, they won the most games in MLB History, and still didn’t make it past the ALCS. But I think that’s going to change soon. The Mariners are the team of the future. First, what other teams could be the team of the future, and why they won’t be. I will not be counting teams like the Dodgers, as their dynasty has already started. PADRES: The Padres have young stars, and a top farm system. Wil Myers‘ and Eric Hosmer‘s abominations of contracts are even ending soon. So why isn’t this team the team of the future? Bad luck. The NL West is arguably the best future division in baseball. The Dodgers are the Dodgers and the Giants and Diamondbacks have top prospects waiting in the wings. This will diminish the Padres’ chances of making the playoffs. METS: The Mets could be a dynasty. There is not a lot stopping them. They have talented young guys who still have not hit their prime. My question is sustainability. Michael Conforto and Francisco Lindor are both free agents after this year. Lindor even says he won’t negotiate after opening day. If they re-sign, this could be a dynasty. But it doesn’t look like either will. BLUE JAYS: Another...

Dodgers 2021 Preview: Batters

Reading Time: 2 minutesIn less than a month, it will be time for the immortal words that every fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers knows: Dodger Baseball. The Dodgers won the World Series in 2020, but can they be the first team since the 2000 Yankees to win back to back? Let’s look at the team, who’ll be on it, and how I think they’ll do. CATCHERS: Will Smith and Austin Barnes The Dodgers used a two-catcher system with Yasmani Grandal and Austin Barnes until 2019. In 2019 and 2020, it was the same, but with Will Smith replacing...

Fantasy Baseball’s 2021 Sleepers and Busts

Reading Time: 2 minutesSpring Training has started meaning it’s time for fantasy baseball drafts. If you are one of the many playing this year, here is who will break out this year, and who will break down. SLEEPER: Julio Urias, SP/RP, Los Angeles Dodgers Ranked at 129 by ESPN, Urias is criminally low. Urias is a former top pitching prospect, and he pitched the last two innings of the Dodgers World Series clincher. Another great thing about him is that as a starter and a reliever, he can get saves and wins. Dodgers’ Manager Dave Roberts has even said...
