NLCS Preview - Phillies/Giants

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 15, 2010

Both the Phillies and the Giants will take their same pitching rotation order into the NLCS. These rotations worked for both of them in the division series to great success. I think in this series though the outcome could be much different for the Giants.

The Phillies will go with no-hit/perfect game king of the majors Roy Halladay in game 1, and then, Oswalt, Hamels, and Blanton. Halladay will most certainly be Chuck Norris like and the odds are in his favor to have yet another no hit game. The Giants were only able to muster 11 runs in 4 games vs the Braves, who have some fairly... (more)

ALCS Preview

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 14, 2010

You know, I have always thought that Ron Washington was a bit....different. He's just not like other managers. He makes decisions that are outside the box, and he has done so yet again for the ALCS.

Instead of going the first game with the ace of his staff Cliff Lee, Washington is going with CJ Wilson. Then, the Rangers will go with Colby Lewis, Cliff Lee, and Tommy Hunter. Very unorthodox to say the least. In another move, the Rangers will carry one less infielder and one more reliever. Washington is thinking outside the box and it just might work out for them.

The Yankees... (more)

We're Number 1!

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 13, 2010

In a mock look at the BCS rankings that are to come out officially on October 17, that mock look has the Boise State Broncos ranked #1. This is of course based on the games thus far and really has no bearing on what things will look like in a few weeks after schools like Ohio State play the toughest part of their schedule, but for the media this is enough and will be enough when the real rankings come out to beat everyone in America over the head with their BCS busting team Boise State.

What these media heads don’t realize is that Boise State doesn’t bust up anything. If they were... (more)

Thanks For The Memories

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 12, 2010

I've been a Braves fan all my life. I was a fan in the late 70s when the team couldn't buy a win. I was a fan in the 80s when they started to make improvements. I was a fan in the 90s when they were almost unbeatable. And I'm still a fan today after their elimination in the NLDS by the Giants. I've also been a fan of Bobby Cox during his time with the Braves, most of the time that is.

Bobby Cox "retired" Monday night after the Braves loss to the Giants ranked 4th on the All-Time Wins List. He has had an amazing career with the Braves and an amazing career in baseball. Cox took... (more)

Scraping The Bottom

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 11, 2010

The current NFL season has been topsy turvy to say the least. Many teams being upset on a weekly basis. You never know who might come out on top in any given game. There are a few teams though that have struggled all season and after week 5 they find themselves scraping the bottom.

AFC

East - The Buffalo Bills are now 0-5. The Bills have had their moments to try and win most notably against the Patriots where they scored 30 points and in this Sunday's game vs the Jags where they had the lead for most of the first half. The Bills have very little in the way of offensive weapons... (more)

Better Late Than Never

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 10, 2010

The Tampa Bay Rays looked for all the world like they were done. The Texas Rangers had put a flat beating on them for 2 games. The Rays had one more chance to stay in the playoffs. Another loss and they were finished. So, the Rays returned to the tried and true formula they have used all season - better late than never.

The Rays were down 2-1 in the 7th inning. It looked as if they were done for. They just couldn't get the bats moving. The Rays one saving grace to this point - the Rangers bats weren't moving that well either against Rays pitcher Matt Garza. A lot of people started... (more)

Errors Equal Runs

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 8, 2010

The Braves have the worst error record in the Major Leagues since the all star break. That's just a fact. It has cost them more games than I care to remember. Last night, fielding errors along with a bad base running call by the umpire, cost them game 1 of a playoff series.

The Braves had 2 scored errors in the game and in reality, had 3 counting Infante's error at 3rd that should have been scored an error and wasn't. All of these errors led to base runners. One of those base runners, who we will get to in a moment, scored the ONLY run scored by either team in this game. It was... (more)

Help Me Oprah, Help Me Tom Cruise, Help Me Randy Moss

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 7, 2010

Most of the sports media talking heads would have you believe that Randy Moss will save the Vikings from mediocrity this season by his addition alone. That Randy Moss will save Brett Favre from looking like a complete bonehead for returning to play another season. But their assumptions are wrong.

Randy Moss is a great receiver who was made better by going to New England. The Patriots system of play and their system of player accountability made Moss respectable again. He went from pretend mooner to half of one of the most prolific QB/WR components to ever grace the game. Moss, however,... (more)

Breaking Up For Cowards

By Deborah Horton, published on Oct 22, 2017

A new website titled IDump4U will break up with your significant other for a fee. The fee varies based on what type of breakup you are interested in. The site will even be so kind as to record the break up conversation for you so that you can play it later if you want. It used to be over the phone break ups were bad. Then, it progressed to text or email break ups. But now, for a price, you can have someone do it all for you. No muss, no fuss, it's breaking up for cowards.

The site offers $10 for a basic break-up, $25 to call off an engagement and $50 for a divorce. You can, as... (more)
