NHL Preseason Power Rankings

With the heat of free agency past us and the new season looming, we now have a pretty solid idea of where teams stand in terms of talent for the upcoming 2015-2016 season. Here's how they rank: 30. Arizona Coyotes A terrible past few seasons followed by getting kicked out of their own

The Tampa Bay Rays Quietly Own Lefties

If there's one team that kills lefties that only a select few baseball nerds are aware of, it's the Tampa Bay Rays. Look up and down the roster, no one looks worthy of playing in a pennant race—well, except for maybe Evan Longoria, but he hasn't been the stud he once

Power Shift in the AL East

Not long ago it looked like the New York Yankees were the favorite to run away with the AL East. But after the Toronto Blue Jays acquired Troy Tulowitzki, David Price, LaTroy Hawkins, Mark Lowe and Ben Revere, the tides turned mightily. For the first time in months, the Yankees are

The Snakebitten Oakland A’s

With a 48-62 record, the Oakland A's have the fifth fewest wins in the major leagues thus far. After losing in the Wild Card one-game playoff last year, to the Kansas City Royals, it's been downhill for the franchise run by General Manager Billy Beane. Beane made some unfortunate headwinds in

But slowly, the tide turned with the rise of George Springer, Dallas Keuchel and now Carlos Correa. Houston made an unexpected run this season after a slow start

Five Worst College Football Bowl Locations

During college bowl-season, we get to see football played at some pretty cool places: The "Rose Bowl" in Pasadena, Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the "Pinstripe Bowl" at Yankee Stadium, the "Peach Bowl" at the Georgia Dome, etc. However, these next ten places are the absolute opposite. While many teams are

Lost on the South Side: The Chicago White Sox Dilemma

After the flurry of moves this offseason, few people envisioned the Chicago White Sox being this bad. Manager Robin Ventura has been under scrutiny for his team's performance, but it really isn't his fault—Chicago is just full of losing players. Only four batters have positive WAR's: Jose Abreu, Geovany Soto, Adam Eaton and
