Anagramming the A’s

As the leaves start to change from green to gold (or in Northern California, as the grass starts to change from gold to basically the same shade of gold), the mind of every baseball changes from honest, objective measures of players—homers, OPS, and wOBA are basically it—to the metrics that really tell us […]

Le Jeu Dangereux

I never took French, but something told me that “the dangerous game” would sound better in French. This week’s recap is going to be exactly that, the most dangerous game any sports’ fan can play – the “What If” game. It’s a game that can haunt fans for weeks, months, or even years. […]

Back On Track: Niners-Rams Recap

There is obviously a lot to praise from last night’s game against St. Louis. The Niners rushed the ball effectively (40 attempts for 219 yards), prevented Sam Bradford from beating us (he finished 19-41 for 202 yards, one TD and a pick), and proved that the Rams really don’t have a run game (19 […]

All Hail Anquan

Anquan Boldin wasn’t supposed to be an elite receiver this season. Despite a big postseason during the Ravens’ run to the Super Bowl, he was well on the wrong side of 30 and coming off a relatively quiet 2012 regular season that most pundits felt was indicative of his level moving forward. The Ravens […]

Week 4- Win 2

Monday Night wasn’t pretty for the Raiders as they lost pretty handily to the Broncos, and quite possibly lost their starting quarterback for this weekend. Even though there were a lot more negatives than positives, there a few positives to take out of the game. Pryor’s connection with Denarius Moore gave them their […]

Stanford at Washington State Preview

When: Saturday September 28, 7 pm Pacific Time Where: Century Link Stadium   Another Saturday, another win for the Stanford Cardinal.

Niners-Rams: Thursday Night Preview

Heading into St. Louis for Thursday night football, just four days after being embarrassed at home by Indianapolis, the Niners face a lot of questions on both sides of the ball. The Niners sit at 1-2, tied for last place in the NFC West and two games behind the Seahawks atop the division. […]

What The Final Weekend Means For The A’s

With just a weekend series against the Mariners remaining, A’s playoff baseball is right around the corner. As much hype as the AL Wild Card race has received, the race for the top-three seeds in the American League is pretty close as well. The A’s currently sit two games behind the Red Sox, […]

It’s Time For Quinton Patton

With three games now in the books for the San Francisco 49ers, it’s clear that the jury is still out on this team. With an encouraging win against the Green Bay Packers in week one, and lack-luster (to say the least) efforts against the Seattle Seahawks and Indianapolis Colts, it’s hard to figure […]

Who Has The Edge: Pac-12 vs. SEC

(Photos Courtesy of RammaJammaYellaHamma)     The SEC is widely regarded as the best college football conference in the country, for good reason too. The last seven BCS National Champions have hailed from the Southeastern Conference. Until someone dethrones this giant, it will be hard to argue against, but the Pac-12 has compiled quite the […]
