The BBWAA should be ashamed of themselves.

Reading Time: 4 minutesThe time has come yet again for baseball Twitter to spend the next several months eviscerating the Baseball Writers Association of America, also known as the BBWAA, and rightfully so. Even though the deserved criticism will be intensified due to the lockout, year after year the BBWAA lets down the entire baseball world by ignoring deserving players in favor of creating a popularity contest, wasting their selections on “strategic” votes, and taking a delusional moral high ground so unprecedented that it appears nowhere else in sports. Why are these issues inherently problematic? Let me explain. In...

Stephen Curry: The Players’ MVP

Reading Time: 3 minutesOne of the most exciting NBA regular seasons in recent memory has come to a close, smashing pretty much every expectation made before the start, and yet I still feel like I’ve been left with an empty feeling in my gut. Though many players have received their due credit and respect throughout the season, there is one man who hasn’t gotten nearly enough love: Wardell Stephen Curry, the Players’ MVP. LeBron was right.

However, these offensive DMs are just the latest in a string of events, spanning years back, that have the potential to overshadow his impressive career with his selfish actions and immaturity. Durant’s thin-skinned ego is what separates him from the likes of LeBron and Jordan, and leaves him outside of being an NBA ‘great,’ as those two would never let these kind of things distract from their team.

Near Carbon-Copy: Why 2014 Hints at a Royals Postseason Run

Reading Time: 2 minutesAs we enter the new 2021 MLB season, the Kansas City Royals will begin with a feeling of familiarity. Actually, almost a sense of ‘déjà vu.’ BetMGM’s betting line has the Royals’ projected record at 73-89 (.450 win %), after finishing last year at 26-34 (.371 win %), giving them their 5th straight losing season following their 2015 World Series win. The Royals have been flat out bad. Some years they can’t seem to find the ball even if the fate of the world depended on it. Other years, it’s the rotation or bullpen. Some are...
