Photo Credit: Madison This year is the 51st year of the Super Bowl era of football, and I can say this past one was the most historic Super Bowl I have ever witnessed. Several records were shattered in this game, including the most Super Bowl wins by a quarterback (Tom Brady), the largest comeback of all time (New England Patriots, 25-point deficit), and the first ever … Continue reading How Super Bowl LI Proved NFL Overtime Rules Must Be Changed
Photo Credit: The DC Gazette When you look at the young career of Stephen Curry and look at all he has accomplished, you would think people would have very little to say about his flaws. I could go on forever explaining all the records he holds and everything he has done throughout a short period of time, but that is not what this article is … Continue reading The Criticism Surrounding Stephen Curry: What’s Right, What’s Wrong
Photo Credit: NBA (featured image), ESPN & CBS Sports (team logos) 2016 was one of the most exciting sports years ever. Who would have guessed that the Villanova Wildcats would win the National Championship the way they did? Who would have guessed that the Denver Broncos would deliver another Super Bowl to Peyton Manning in his last season? No one thought that the Chicago Cubs … Continue reading Championship Predictions for Every Sport in 2017

Photo Credit: CBS Sports (featured image), ESPN (team logos) The playoff chase for the NFL has begun, and there are still no promises for many teams this season. As the playoffs come closer and closer to beginning, I thought now would be a perfect time to list all playoff teams and whether they are real contenders or pretenders. New England Patriots: Contenders Any team with Tom … Continue reading NFL: Who are the Real Contenders?

Dunn will likely replace Boone Logan in their bullpen as a late inning left-handed specialist (Boone Logan has entered free agency, and is not likely to return).

The deal included Boston giving up prospects, including Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech, in exchange for the 5-time All-Star. This is a big trade in the baseball universe, as Sale is considered to be one of the best pitchers in the MLB today.

Photo Credit: Wikipedia The idea of the MLB All-Star game playing an impact on something as big as the World Series made many baseball skeptics ask for change. It has become a recurring argument in the MLB today. It is safe to say the majority of the MLB fan base wanted the All-Star game to be more of an exhibition than something that will play … Continue reading MLB Changes All-Star Game Rules
Photo Credit: USA Today It had never been done before. Nothing in the entire situation had happened before. No team in history had ever won 73 games in a single season. No team had had one of its players ever win an MVP award by a unanimous decision. No team had had one of its player put up even close to the new record amount of made … Continue reading How the Golden State Warriors Have (Somehow) Exceeded Expectations
Photo Credit: Panamerican World I know. The 2016 MLB season just ended. It is way too early to be talking about next season given how long it is until another baseball game is played. However, there has been a lot of discussion among the SportsPress writers on the articles which feature the MLB all-time dream team. I don’t plan on writing too many baseball articles … Continue reading MLB in 2017: Who’s the Best at Each Position?
Photo Credit: Sports Out West It was a tough pill to swallow around the end of last season. With the retirement of Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan, and others, it had finally became official. All the NBA superstars I had grown up watching and admiring were out the door. With Allen Iverson, Tracy McGrady, Vince Carter, and Ray Allen (just to name a few) … Continue reading Why You Should be Excited for the NBA’s Future
Photo Credit: BSN Denver It was not too long ago when the Denver Broncos pulled off the NFL’s latest version of a Super Bowl shocker. Despite being heavy underdogs against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers, the Broncos’ historically good defense came through, beating the 15-1 Panthers by a final score of 24-10. Peyton Manning retired from the NFL, and as a result, the Broncos … Continue reading How the Denver Broncos Can Reach Super Bowl LII in 2018
Photo Credit: Daily Knicks Derrick Rose is a walking what-if. Now at age 28, Rose has been separated by time from his past glory. He was the youngest MVP the NBA has ever seen before. Born in Chicago, Rose had the expectations similar to those of LeBron James. The Chicago Bulls had been going through the worst years in franchise history. Michael Jordan’s move to … Continue reading The Rose that Could Bloom Again
Photo Credit: ABC7Chicago I cannot believe it happened. It still boggles my mind more than 3 days later that the Chicago Cubs have won the 2016 MLB World Series. It seemed hopeless at more than a couple of times for the Cubs to take home the pennant. But somehow, someway, Chicago beat the Cleveland Indians to win their first World Series in over a century. … Continue reading The Curse Is Over: How the Cubs Did It
Photo Credit: Famous Sports People On June 4th, 2016, a past SportsPress writer Jesse Blank posted an article on this very site about his MLB dream team. No disrespect to one of the older and better writers SportsPress had, but the team had many flaws in it, and has caused a lot of discussion in the comments section, even recently, which you can see HERE (link to original article). … Continue reading MLB GOATs: Unveiling Baseball’s Dream Team
Photo Credit: FOX Sports Imagine this. It’s a big game in the season. This crucial game is tied going into the bottom of the 9th inning. With a runner on second with one out, you come to the plate. In a 2-0 count, you rip and outside fastball to the right side for a base hit. As you round first base, you watch the baseball … Continue reading Why the MLB Challenge Rule Must Go
Photo Credit: Business Insider You can hate it all you want, but Kevin Durant will be playing with the 73-9 Golden State Warriors in the upcoming NBA season. I personally think you can make an argument that this is good or bad for the NBA. For one, this sets up the NBA finals matchup of a lifetime between LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers against … Continue reading NBA Preview: Five Predictions for the Upcoming Season
Photo Credit: The Ledge ESPN recently came out with their top 100 NBA players of all time. Within this list, there are the top 10 small forwards of all time.

Photo Credit: sports.inquirer.net The Toronto Blue Jays, though given a chance to take home the pennant this season, were marked down as an underdog coming into this postseason. After a magical 11 inning victory in the Wild Card game over the Baltimore Orioles, which ended with a walk-off 3-run bomb by Edwin Encarnacion, Toronto made the trip down to Arlington, Texas to take on the … Continue reading Blue Jays Continue to Dominate Rangers: Is the Series Already Over?
Photo Credit: UPI (featured image), ESPN (team logos) The MLB may just be the only sport where any team in the postseason has a solid chance at winning the World Series. For example, 16 teams make the NBA Playoffs, yet only two or three really have a good shot at taking home the title. The NFL is slightly better given that their playoffs are one game series. … Continue reading MLB Postseason Predictions: Why Any Team Could Win the World Series
Photo Credit: calltothepen.com There is something about superstition that seems to be apart of baseball more than any sport on Earth. There may even be an argument towards the most superstitious action ever. The inconsistency is to blame. In most sports, players will perform relatively the same every game, despite a few small exceptions. For example, a player in the NBA who scores 25 points per … Continue reading To All Cubs’ Fans: The Curse WILL Continue
