Carter was quick to say that Peterson, at age 33, would not be a factor in the Redksins offense this year. Fast Forward a month and we see that Peterson has rushed for 236 yards (4.2 YPC) with 3 touchdowns in 3 games. Can Peterson's success this year be credited to his wanting to prove Carter wrong?

    Eric Dickerson and a bunch of Hall of Fame douche bags are demanding that the NFL provide them with free health care and a salary for being elected to the hall. The dick(erson) submitted a letter containing 22 signatures, including those of Kurt Warner and Carl Ellard. Warner now claims that he never approved of the demands and there is no HoF player named Carl Ellard. Did the dick(erson) falsify signatures to give his demands merit? Are the dick(erson)'s demands reasonable? Don't all former players deserve some form of free health care? What about the salary demand? These "men" made millions during their careers. Do they deserve a salary because they couldn't manage money during, or find work after, their careers were over? BQ: Is there a bigger turd in the HoF besides Eric Dickerson?

    I'm constantly hearing the media refer to Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper as a "superstar", but is that label accurate? When I hear "superstar" I think of Willie May, or Hank Aaron, or Mickey Mantle. By age 25, Mantle had twice led the AL in homers, had been the league leader in RBI once (and had driven in more than 100 runs twice, and had won a batting championship. And he was a two-time AL MVP. At the same age Harper has won NL ROY, an MVP award and has led the NL in homers once. By the time was 25 Mays had a ROY and MVP award under his belt, had led the NL in homers and stolen bases once each, had driven in 100+ runs twice, and he missed a full season to serve in the military. By age 25, Henry Aaron was a two-time batting champ, had won an MVP award, had led the league in homers and RBI once, and had drive in 100+ runs three times. Harper's numbers clearly pale when compared to true superstars, so why do the media keep referring to him as one?

  • Brandon Morrow Done For Year?

    Last winter the idiot Theo Epstein gave Brandon Morrow -- who had appeared in more than 45 games in a season just once in his career -- a 2 year contract worth $21,000,000 to be the Cubs closer.

    Last winter the idiot Theo Epstein gave Brandon Morrow -- who had appeared in more than 45 games in a season just once in his career -- a 2 year contract worth $21,000,000 to be the Cubs closer. Morrow is a journeyman who had 18 career saves in 11 years, playing for 4 teams during that span. Epstein also gave Colorado reject Walker Chumpwood a 3 year, $38,000,000 deal. Chumpwood leads the NL in walks despite appearing in just 1 game -- where he walked 2 in 2 innings -- since August 18. Epstein also gave the guy who cost the Dodgers the World Series, Yu Stink Darvish, a 6 year, $126,000,000 contract. The yellow devil is out for the year after deciding it was easier to fake an injury than actually try to earn the money he was being given. So for his $46.5M investment this year Epstein has 3 pitchers who will be of no use to the team should it hang on and make the playoffs. Add to that the loss of Pedro Strop after Jackass Joe Maddon's decision to have his interim closer bat in the 10th inning of a tie game and Epstein's signing of Drew Smyly so the wastoid could kick back and collect $3,000,000 worth of free money this year, and the Cubs will blow over $55,000,000 on pitchers who will be of no use to them in the playoffs. How does Epstein keep his job?

  • Philadelphia Phillies: What Happened?

    On August 7th Philly was 64-49 and had a 1.5 game lead over the slumping Atlanta Braves. Since then they've gone 10-22 to fall 7.5 games behind the Braves and they'll need a miracle to make the wild card play-in game (6 games back in that race). How did things go so bad, so fast, for Gabe Kapler's crew?

    I know that there's just over a couple of weeks left in the season but can anyone top Max Scherzer as the best pitcher in the NL? Sure, the Mets Jacob deGrom has had a historic season, allowing 3 or fewer runs in 26 straight starts, and he leads the league in ERA. But Scherzer leads in just about every other significant category, including wins, innings pitched, strikeouts, and WHIP, plus he's 3rd in ERA. If that's not enough, stat wienies should be impressed that Scherzer's WAR is almost a full win higher than any other starter. I'd love to see deGrom get it because he's been the only bright spot in another dismal season for the Mets, but you can't ignore what Scherzer has done. Thoughts?

    Washington has fielded a team that is loaded with talent and is among the Top 5 in payroll this season. In spite of this the team has underachieved and currently have a 69-72 record, 8.5 game back in their division and 10.5 back in the wild card race. Bryce Harper, the most overrated player in MLB not named Arron Judge, and Gio Gonzalez are as good as gone but the club still has good young talent in Rendon, Soto, and Turner plus Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg to anchor the rotation. Dusty Baker was fired after winning 2 straight division titles because he couldn't win in the playoffs, so where does that leave Dave Martinez? The Nats have finished 1st or 2nd in the NL East every year since 2011 and have won at least 83 games in each of the last 6 seasons. They'll be lucky to finish at .500 this year. Will Martinez be back? What about GM Mike Rizzo, who has made some curious personnel moves since the trade deadline passed?

Recovering alcoholic Steve Sarkisian replaced Shanahan last year and the Birds dropped to 15th (22.1 PPG) in the league in scoring. In an interview earlier this week Sarkisian said that he had a better handle on the offense and that he planned to get Julio Jones more involved. Jones did pull in 10 passes for 169 yards but he failed to score as ATL put up just 12 points against the defending champs. Do the Falcons need to look for a new O-coodinator?

    The so-called experts spent last winter touting Shohei Ohtani of Nippon Ham Fighters as the Second Coming of Babe Ruth. This boy, they said, can hit and pitch as they pointed to the numbers he compiled in the JPPL. The problem was that the level of competition in the JPPL is about equal to that of A ball here in the US. So Ohtani appeared to be a pretty good minor league talent. But Arte the Moron had to have this boy, just as he had to have Albert the Pooh and degenerate drug addict Josh Hamilton, so he paid the $20,000,000 posting fee and gave the boy $545,000, to boot. Now, 9 months after signing the Asian devil, we learn that Ohtani has been told that he needs Tommy John surgery after an MRI revealed additional damage to his ulnar collateral ligament. That means the boy may or may not be ready at the start of next season, so what is a publicity-seeking owner to do? Ohtani's future in MLB appears to be as a hitter so should Arte bring the boy back as a DH or outfielder? Or should he let some other team waste money on this overrated joke?

    According to a story on Yahoo! Sports, homophobic and racist tweets are becoming a problem for Major League Baseball. Michael Kopech has joined Josh Hader, Trea Turner, and Sean Newcombe as young players who have had to address tweets that they made as teenagers. The story says that there have now been "numerous instances" of players having been "caught using offensive language" and that while MLB has addressed the issues on an individual basis it might be time for a "larger response". "Larger response"? What the f#ck does that even mean? The story further claims that the tweets are "damaging and alienating to a number of baseball fans." Seriously? I don't give a rat's azz about something a player posted online 5 or 10 years ago and I can't believe that anyone else would, either. Kids do and say stupid things and the stuff that I've seen is typical jock trash talk. A real reporter who's actually spent time in a locker room would know that. Anyone who's bothered by this nonsense is a moron. Agree or disagree?

    MLB has created a committee to address problems facing the game so there could be some new rules in place come next spring. Which problem needs the most attention? Shifts are ruining the game because hitters are trying to hit the ball over fielders rather than where they ain't. This makes the game booooring. Pitching changes have made the game unwatchable There were almost 8 pitching changes per game this season. A hard cap could help keep player salaries down. The problem is that those savings would probably not be passed onto the fans, who have to take out a 2nd mortgage in order to attend a game these days. Umpires have grown more volatile and even more inept in recent years. A electronic strike zone would benefit the game. Expansion? Add 2 teams, go to 4 4-team divisions and forget about the wild cards. What sort of changes would you like to see made?

Machado has tanked since entering the heat of the pennant race in Los Angeles. After slamming 24 homers and driving in 65 runs in 96 games with Baltimore, Machado has just 5 dingers and 12 RBI in 31 games with the Dodgers. Harper, truth be told, has had just one truly outstanding season since making his major league debut in 2012 and has been ,generally, inconsistent and unimpressive. It makes sense to pay young players with potential but how much upside do these guys really have? Both have been in the majors for 7 years and neither one has really established himself as an elite player. Mike Trout, the best player in the game today will make $34,083,000 next year; do either of these players deserve anywhere close to that much money?

In May he was placed on an "involuntary psychiatric hold" after an altercation at a Life Time Fitness health club in Boca Raton, Florida and today he was arrested in Scottsdale, AZ for disorderly conduct and making threats at a funeral home following his father's death. It's clear, by his actions, that Incognito is angling for a place on the Dallas Cowboys so why hasn't Jerry Jones given him a call?
