Why Did The Knicks Hire Jeff Hornacek?

This is nothing against Jeff Hornacek, I think very highly of him. Although his 101-112 record as a head coach in Phoenix doesn’t say much, Hornacek proved that he has the ability to be a successful coach in the league. In his first season, he took a Suns team that was one of the worst in the NBA to a team that missed the playoffs in a very competitive Western…

Is it too early too start projecting a Red Sox/Cubs World Series?

This article was originally featured in the latest edition of The Morning Mando.  I’m not great at making long-term sports predictions. But I don’t really think many people are, for that matter. For instance, pretty much every baseball pundit had the Nationals winning the World Series last year. That said, I’m pretty confident that the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago Cubs are on a collision corse to meet in this…

The East Needs Improvement

As I write this, I am watching the Cavaliers embarrass the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Finals. From the looks of things, this series is going to be nothing but a tiny speed bump in the Cavaliers’ road to the finals. Don’t get me wrong, the Cavaliers are a good team, but not good enough to have the strong possibility of winning every conference playoff game this year. The Toronto Raptors,…

Rapid Fire MLB Predictions- May 17th

After a day off yesterday, I’m hoping to continue my momentum from Sunday. Just to clarify for those who might be new to these articles, the numbers you see in parentheses are moneyline values. So, for instance, if you see -120 in parentheses, that means that in order to win $100, you would need to wager $120. In contrast, +120 would mean you could wager $100 to win $120. Essentially,…

NBA Playoff Predictions- May 17th

*Record 6-5* After what seemed like a year of waiting, the Cavaliers are finally back in action tonight as they host the Toronto Raptors in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Unfortunately, I have the agree with the general consensus in that I don’t expect this to be much of a series. I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t believe I will be. The Raptors barely slipped past a…
