Raiders, Allen Ready to 'Rock and Roll' in 2014

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Jan 10, 2014

...let go of Allen given the team's lackluster 4-12 season, Davis called the meeting "end-of-season protocol", according to Gutierrez, and mentioned that Allen's job was safe.

Allen also led the Raiders to a 4-12 record in 2012 in his first year as the team's head coach.

The Raiders 2013 season was a roller coaster season that one would want to eventually forget where they slightly succeeded and struggled between two quarterbacks, lose their final six straight games of the season while allowing an average of 34.5 points per game, including a 56-31 loss against the Kansas City... (more)

"It" Awaits

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Nov 15, 2013

...release of the Playstation Vita, Sony just never gets it right on day zero.

So, it’s fitting that there’s a “hardware issue” on the eve of possibly their biggest, most hyped console in their history. It’s fitting that while Sony has the upper hand over MIcrosoft throughout the 2013 calendar year that, on the final countdown toward their biggest release, there had to be some kind of issue.

Price tag, online hack, another price tag, and now, something as simple as putting on the HDMI port correctly.

Tonight, we’ll find out if we really awaited “Greatness” ... (more)

Yanks To Go On Another Shopping Spree?

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Nov 14, 2013

...man home plate in 2014, however it’s the outfield that might see some serious change. With guys like Shin Soo Choo, Hunter Pence, Coco Crisp and Jacoby Ellsbury potentially available, losing Granderson might not be as big of a loss as some think.

Although Curtis didn’t show much in 2013 after two freak hand injuries, let alone going a combined 2-for-15 in the Yanks finale in Houston, he hit 84 home runs in two healthy years in 2011 and 2012.

Pence would add a sense of leadership in the clubhouse, while Choo brings a .280 batting average from the last two years. And, he... (more)

Not So Incognito

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Nov 6, 2013

Remember that one kid in high school, or middle school, or elementary, who used to pick on you and you only. That kid who thought they were bigger and tougher than anyone else. That same kid who pretty much declared that the rules of standard life don’t apply to him. Or her.

Richie Incognito is that kid and Johnathan Martin is his target.

Yes, the 30-year old Incognito picking on the 24-year old Martin, who is just in his second year as a pro out of Stanford, is proof that even adults can be bullied by other adults. Rookie hazing need not apply here. But there is one question... (more)

A's Heading to San....Francisco?

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Nov 4, 2013

Wouldn’t it be ironic even in the slightest way if it actually made sense to wear a black and orange Oakland A’s hat, to an Oakland A’s game at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Or, how about the name, “The Oakland Athletics of San Francisco?”

On Sunday, sources confirmed with the San Francisco Chronicle’s Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross about Major League Baseball willing to help the A’s play at AT&T Park if the officials of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum can’t agree to a deal on a new short-term lease for the club.

The move out of Oakland would be the first step to the... (more)

As If It Was Scripted: Boston Wins the World Series

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Oct 31, 2013

...their third World Series in 10 years in Fenway. Sure, it might have ended the “1918” curse of the Sox not winning a title at Fenway, or maybe it was something more.

Something tragic, that was turned into triumph.

If it’s true that sports can heal a city after tragedy, the 2013 Boston Red Sox are living proof. Much like the 2001 Patriots and the 2001 Yankees were after the attacks of September 11.

It seems like only yesterday that the Boston Red Sox, under then manager Bobby Valentine, finished last in the American League East with more negative stories from... (more)

Time to Panic in the Bronx?

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Apr 4, 2013

Let's be honest for a second. It's not like anyone expected the Yankees to start the season 3-0 after their opening series against the Boston Red Sox after the team lost Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Mark Teixiera, and Curtis Granderson during Spring Training.

It's not as if we didn't think that the lineup would struggle to score runs during the first month of the year either, only scoring a total of six runs despite 15 hits throughout the first two games of the year.

But after a disappointing first outing by pitcher C.C. Sabathia and a bullpen that just got rocked on Wednesday... (more)
