The Drought Ends 56 years later!

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Nov 2, 2010

There were three teams in the MLB that had the longest championship-less droughts. The Chicago Cubs, the Cleveland Indians, and the San Francisco Giants.

Edgar Renteria's three-run homer in the seventh inning took the Giants off of that list as the underdog Giants defeated the American League Champion Texas Rangers 3-1 on Monday night to clinch their first World Series title since they won it as the New York Giants back in 1954.

To make Renteria's home run even sweeter, he drilled the homer off the man who was thought to be untouchable, Rangers southpaw Cliff Lee.

Re-Committing to Excellence

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Nov 1, 2010

"Unfortunately, sometimes a negative becomes a positive."

92 points in the last two games after an embarrassing nine point effort in San Francisco in week six is the "negative [becoming] the positive."

The Raiders have outscored both Denver and Seattle a combined 92-17 during the recent two game win streak and the scoring momentum does not seem to be stopping anytime soon. Last season, it took Oakland eight weeks into the season to total over 90 points. That's including a 38-0 shutout loss to the New York Jets in week seven. (For those who forgot, that's the Sanchez-hot dog... (more)

Cleveland Burns as LeBron Joins Miami Heat

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Jul 9, 2010

They say nothing lasts forever. With that in mind, maybe Cavs fans, let alone the rest of the NBA should've seen this coming.

LeBron James' decision to not resign with his hometown Cavaliers and to join All-Stars Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami for the 2010-11 season was expected after rumors swirled about James flying down to Miami to meet with Heat president Pat Riley before Thursday night's 1-hour ESPN special "The Decision." James posted on his @kingjames Twitter account "The Road to History begins now." shortly after he landed in South Beach last night.

As one end of... (more)

Don't worry about Timmy

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Jun 28, 2010

We've called him "The Freak," and we've called him the best, however one way that San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum has never been described is as human.

After starting the 2010 season with a 4-0 record in five starts, posting a 1.27 ERA, the Giants ace seemed to fall off a bit in the month of May.

Lincecum went just 1-2 in six starts in May, allowing a combined 20 runs in 36.1 innings pitched, giving him an inflated 4.95 ERA. This comes not too long after the righty allowed a mere five runs in 35.1 inning pitched a month prior.

"You have your ups and downs during... (more)

From the Top of the Hill to the Top of California Baseball

By Jeff Weisinger, published on May 24, 2010

For a team that represents a school with what seems to be an infinite number of stairs, it's only right to say that the Renegades took each and every step towards a championship in 2010.It wasn't close to a perfect season by any means, however, the saying does go "It's not how you start, but how you finish."What was looked at in the fall as a young, and maybe questionable pitching rotation and an experienced and dominant lineup with a young, second-year head coach, became an all-around dominant team once the spring came about.We wanted to compare them to the 2009 squad that won a school-record... (more)
