What is wrong with Francisco Lindor?

Reading Time: 2 minutesOn January 7, 2021 the Mets traded for Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco in exchange for Amed Rosario, Andres Gimenez, Josh Wolf, and  Isaiah Greene. Obviously, all of us Met fans were beyond ecstatic as we have not acquired a player of Lindor’s caliber in a long time. Considered to be one of the best shortstops in baseball, Francisco was expected to make an immediate impact on the ball club and become the face of the franchise. However, this is not the case a few weeks into the season. With 49 AB, Lindor has 10 hits...

How the NHL Has Changed Drastically Throughout History

Reading Time: 2 minutesHockey is a traditionalist, gritty, non-stop sport that involves physicality and speed. The game is simple, put the puck in the back of the net.

These were the first teams to fight for the cup starting in the 1942 season. They played with six teams up until the 1967 NHL expansion. Secondly, the gear...

Why the Islanders Can Bounce Back from a Rocky Month

Reading Time: 3 minutesIt has been a long month for Islanders fans. The Islanders have a record of 6-7-2 in the month of February, which is not normal considering the play they have shown since Barry Trotz took over the bench. As a lifelong Islanders fan, it is killing me that this team hardly put the puck in the net, especially with talent such as Mathew Barzal and Anders Lee on offense. All year fans have been blaming Thomas Greiss and Semyon Varlamov (the goaltenders) for the losses and not being able to keep the team in the game....

Best Landing Spots for Antonio Brown, as well as AB’s Year in Review

Reading Time: 4 minutesAntonio Brown, has been caught up in utter nonsense for almost a year, and there seems to be no finish line for the superstar that seemingly went insane. Before we look into his potential future, let’s do a very fitting “year in review” for AB, as we approach the conclusion of 2019: Skips final practices in Pittsburgh, and does not play in final game Reportedly got furious that JuJu won the Steelers’ offensive player of the year award, over himself Orchestrates a messy breakup and trade request out of Pittsburgh, bringing his value down significantly Steelers...

How the Mets Should Approach the Remainder of this Offseason

Reading Time: 3 minutesLast off-season, Mets fans witnessed their team being extraordinarily busy between trades and free agent signings. Brodie Van Wagenen was hired as their general manager after being the co-head of the CAA (Creative Artists Agency) sports’ division. He made a BOOM from the beginning, trading away top prospects Jarred Kelenic and Justin Dunn for Robinson Canó and Edwin Diaz in a seven-player swap. The main piece of this trade was Diaz who considered the top closer in the MLB during this time, but that changed drastically. Diaz ended the year with a 5.59 ERA and only...
