By it's nature basketball will always be a more individual sport. In hockey the players wear heavy gear and chase a bouncing puck around choppy ice. Skill can shine, but the team game will always be paramount.
The NHL was the first sport to dive in on gambling, so it is very sensitive to this issue. Kane is going to receive a LOT of scrutiny, even if the allegations come from somebody with axe to grind.
Kansas to the Big Ten would be a great fit, as you mention. Iowa State has less to sell, frankly. There is the rivalry with Iowa and that's it. KU basketball is a huge brand and the school would be a good cultural fit for the Big Ten.
Stephen has gone the wrong direction offensively. You're right, that would be a bad ending to a tough story. For a few years there it seemed he might have enough power to stick in the bigs, but right now he profiles as a fourth/fifth outfielder.
The Cardinals need more offense and that's the position to get it. DeJong makes $17.4 million total for the next two seasons, counting his buyout, so that's not such a huge number to work around.
Any player of Molina's stature has clout because of his standing with teammates. Managers have to navigate through the power of management to control the roster and the power of elite players to control the clubhouse. What's the beef against Molina this season? That he is playing too much? That he is holding back somebody better?
Who's going to tell the Chief that he has to coach Kessel?
I don't watch the NFL because there is no team here. I do watch college football and enjoy the high-end games because of the atmosphere. But a so-so NFL game is better than ordinary college game where plays aren't being made.
If either makes the team, it's s a back-up because somehow Knizner ended up in a trade. They are depth guys, not prospects.
On the odd chance that No. 91 rededicates himself to the Blues AND that rededication is accepted AND nobody gets hurt then something will have to give. Trading Sanford now would be trading low on him after his finish.
The Pirates inflated the records of NL Central teams this year while tanking the entire season. But the NL Central is a gauntlet compared to the AL Central, where the Twins and Royals have been awful all year and only the White Sox are over .500.
Turner is under contract for another year and the trade price would be high, so Story.
No opinion, I don't follow the White Sox.
Come on, be ice. It's OK to jump in on somebody else's question here.
Carlos has had the better run with strong campaigns as both a starter and closer.
I believe Kyrou has more ability to score off the rush. Keller is a great playmaker, like Thomas, but Robert still has that appealing potential to be a No. 2-type center.
Players in our country seldom place equal emphasis on pitching and hitter as they reach higher competitive levels. We specialize. And most of the great all-around athletes with the raw talent to do both well end up in other sports.
