Joel Embiid has asserted himself as one of, if not the best big man in the NBA this season. Starting with his 29 point eruption in the season opener against Washington, Embiid has done little in the way of slowing down since then. Through ten games, the talented center ranks in the top ten league-wide […]Read more "Why Joel Embiid is rapidly becoming an early MVP candidate"
The Eagles joined a growing group of teams eager to make up for the disappointment that their 2020 seasons were filled with on Monday by parting ways with Doug Pederson. Known and immortalized as the first head coach to capture a Super Bowl title, Pederson’s time in Philly will likely be remembered as a mixed […]Read more "Where do the Eagles Rank amongst teams with Head Coach openings?"
When trying to describe the Phillies offseason thus far, uneventful, lackluster, and fruitless are words that come to mind. Day after day the stench of complacency grows around the franchise as the front office refuses to spend money and make moves. Already on the verge of losing star catcher J.T Realmuto to the highest-bidder and […]Read more "Lack of activity sees Phillies fall further down NL East Totem Pole"
Christmas time is finally here and the Phillies are in desperate need of a few gifts. Having yet to award a single major-league contract, the team largely carries the same weaknesses that they did last year and run the risk of getting even worse heading into next season. With such an abundance of roster holes, […]Read more "A J.T Realmuto extension? 2020 Phillies Christmas Wishlist"
Inexplicably, the Phillies have been reluctant to extend superstar catcher J.T Realmuto since he arrived in Philly. Despite him clearly being the best player at his position and already registering an all-star campaign with the Phils, the team has been hesitant to ink the talented backstop to a long-term deal. A puzzling, frustrating strategy, their […]Read more "There is No (Good) Plan B if Phillies Lose J.T Realmuto"
Slated to face a fierce, veteran Saints defense in his first NFL start, expectations were modest at best for rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts. Entering into Sunday’s contest against Philly, the Saints’ defense had been incredibly stingy in all facets. The impressive unit was surrendering the fifth-fewest passing yards per game and second-fewest rushing yards per […]Read more "Eagles Offense may have finally found footing with Jalen Hurts at the Helm"
Today, the Phillies officially made storied MLB executive Dave Dombrowski their first-ever President of Baseball Operations. Most recently with the Boston Red Sox, with whom he secured his second World Series title, Dombrowski has also famously spent time with the Montreal Expos, Florida Marlins, and Detroit Tigers. Having captured (at least) a league pennant with […]Read more "Five takeaways from Dave Dombrowski’s introductory press conference"
All winter, the Phillies have been marred by confusion and overall lack of direction from their so-called leadership. Since firing demoting ex-general manager Matt Klentak to some still largely unknown front office role, the Phillies seem to have more questions than answers. Following a disappointing third-place NL East finish and their ninth consecutive season without a playoff […]Read more "Phillies Front Office Can’t Get Out of Their Own Way"
Heading into the offseason, the Sixers were seemingly on the verge of falling even further behind in the rising Eastern Conference. With the inflated, regrettable Al Horford contract handicapping their free agency plans, the Sixers would have been lucky to add more than a middling bench option- a far cry from the true playmakers they […]Read more "Morey’s emphasis on analytics is paying early dividends for the Sixers"
This offseason has been an incredibly exciting, fruitful one for the Sixers thus far. After being plagued by mismanagement of talent and resources the last few years, the Sixers brought in future Hall of Fame coach Doc Rivers and 2018 NBA Executive of the Year Daryl Morey this winter, further cementing the franchise’s championship aspirations […]Read more "Why the Sixers probably can’t swing a trade for Zach LaVine anymore"
