There Is Nothing In Sports Like Game 7

The word and the number together are special.  Game 7.  All the marbles.  All the blood, sweat and tears.  Move on or go home.  And there is no tomorrow.  Game 7 might be the best thing we have in sports, especially in hockey.

Sergio Garcia Proves Again Why He Isn’t Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods vs. David Duval never happened.  Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson never happened.  Tiger Woods vs. Ernie Els never happened.  Tiger Woods vs. Sergio Garcia also never happened.  And for what seemed like the 1,000th time at The 2013 Players Championship, we were reminded yet again why Woods vs. Garcia was laughable from the start.

Joe Girardi Won’t Get Credit Because He’s Yankee Skipper

It is one of the true enigmas in sports, a baseball manager.  How much credit do they get when a club wins and how much blame when one loses?  This year, at some point, Joe Girardi must be given a little credit, right?

Todd Helton Is A Hall of Famer

With the Yankees recently having played in Colorado, one of the great baseball players of the last two decades (save 2008, 2010 and 2012, but everyone has bad or injured years over the course of a career) wasn't talked about much again.  He has been underrated through the years.  Why?  Who knows?  But Todd Helton is a future Hall of Famer.

Yankees-Royals Series Preview

 

The Yankees and upstart Royals play three in Kansas City. New York comes fresh off a series win in rainy Colorado. Kansas City comes off a series loss to the Orioles in Baltimore.  Here is a Yankees-Royals series preview.

Royals general manager Dayton Moore had a plan a couple years ago.  It was a plan to build through the farm, get pitching with some prospects and build an actual baseball team.  Well, here we are.  The Royals are good.  Are they really good?  Not yet, but even at 18-13 this club is showing early signs that the playoffs are possible, especially with the second Wild Card now in place.  The Yankees will see old Rays pitchers Wade Davis and James Shields in this series, two guys they know well from American League East ball.  Finally, Mariano Rivera returns to the scene where he tore his ACL shagging fly balls last year.

Why LeBron Still Isn’t Michael

LeBron James is a man among boys.  Physical beast.  Skill set from the basketball Gods.  Great scorer.  Awesome passer.  Plays four or five positions.  Super hard worker to balance the unreal talent.  He is a different player than Michael Jordan, but no matter how you slice it, he still isn't as great as Jordan was.  Here are five reasons why LeBron, despite his current dominance and greatness, still isn't MJ:
