Re: “St. Louis Cardinals in Crisis: What's Gone Wrong

The biggest mistake other than the Adams trade to Atlanta was not getting serious with Sierra as the spark was there ! Giving up leads, terrible baserunnimg and lack of hitting we can over
come as this division always has ups and downs. I have heard replacing Matheny may be the answer ,but not now . My theory has always been don't fix it if it isn't broken !

Deford was one of my favorites, if not favorite, journalists of the last 40 plus years. And technically, I guess he was a sports writer.

Re: “Lord Stanley Comes to Tennessee

As someone who grew up watching hockey in Toronto (and no, I don't live in an igloo), I'm excited to see Nashville embrace hockey due to the great job GM Poile has done in putting together an exciting young team. I know Memphis and Nashville have an inter-state rivalry (as do Toronto and Montreal), but I'd love to see Memphians support the Predators. Your reward could be that y'all will finally see what a great sport hockey is. Go Preds!

Re: “Lord Stanley Comes to Tennessee

Are you kidding? I always thought that hockey would be a perfect fit for the typical southern fan base. We rednecks know how to throw-down when it comes to a sport with lots of action and fighting. And if there is blood and dental-loss, so much the better!

Re: “Lord Stanley Comes to Tennessee

Fun Fact: The only former SPHL (Southern Professional Hockey League) player to have his name put on the Stanley Cup was Scott Darling who played for the Mississippi Riverkings (Southaven). Scott Darling was a member of 2014-2015 Chicago Blackhawks team.…

Re: “Beyond the Arc Podcast #80: Should the Grizzlies Trade Marc Gasol?

I agree that it is time for some fairly drastic steps to revitalize this team. In addition to making some of trades mentioned, and not spending money we don't have on aging veterans, the Grizz should release the poorest performer in recent years, too. That has been Chris Wallace. Pera needs to find a better custodian of his money than someone who throws huge money at cripples. He has been a poor communicator, a worse judge of talent, and an apparently weak negotiator who seems to throw out his top number first.

Re: ““Uncle Tim” McCarver: An Appreciation

On of my favorite TV half hours was when Tim had Yogi Berra and Joe Garagiola on his syndicated show.

Re: ““Uncle Tim” McCarver: An Appreciation

When he call on of his few Cardinals games on Fox Midwest, it's really a must watch. His analysis and overall sense for the game is astounding. He's also not shy calling out bad play and questionable managerial decisions by Cards skipper Mike Matheny. He's the Hubie Brown of baseball telecasts for sure. I wish the Redbirds would bring him in for a pregame autograph session like they used to do with ex players.

Re: “Game 5: Spurs 116, Grizzlies 103: Home Cooking

The one positive is that I think Conley may finally be earning his first All-Star bid next year by the way he's playing right now.

This is the time most of the national guys will see him, and he's putting on a show. This is the best I've ever seen him play.

Excellent analysis, Mr. Lipe. Great to see the Grizz grind another one out.

Re: “St. Louis Cardinals: Wounded Winners Head to the Playoffs

I was at Game 1 and 2 of the 2015 NLDS. Reading this article now sent me back. In hindsight it really seems like those two games represented the turning point for the organization. It also sent me back to Game 5 of the 2014, when I saw Oscar Taveras pinch hit in the top of the 9th. His death still jolts me. It's a selfish fan thought, but it's hard to imagine what might have transpired in the last two seasons if he was still with us.

Re: “Game 3: Grizzlies 105, Spurs 94: Grindhouse Forever

I almost felt bad for soon to be 40 Manu Ginobili. In 10 minutes of scoreless play, his wide open, uncontested 3 almost broke the backboard and his careless stepping out of bounds with the ball right into the 2nd half, which led to a Gasol 3 and 9 pt Grizz lead, well, you can see the basketball grim reaper knocking at his door. He was never even in position to hopefully draw one of his patented flops.

Re: “Game 1 Recap: Spurs 111, Grizzlies 82

I love Zach. But if he can't get any offense going quickly, the burden of his defense is far too heavy for the team to bear for anything beyond spot minutes.

Re: “Game 1 Recap: Spurs 111, Grizzlies 82

We discuss this every year since 2011 but the story is the same. Grizzlies have never had 3 good players playing together and scoring. MC and MG never seem to both play well in same game.

Rest of the team is in some kind of spectator sport. JMG does not want to become primary scorer. Who else is left to score. Zebo has been figured out by SAS since 2011 so I don't expect anything from him

Mike Wallace needs to go. He has failed to draft good players, failed to identify talent that could have flourished (Seth Curry, Whiteside etc. ) and never recruited good players.

They should blow this team up next year and start again.

Re: “Tony Allen out indefinitely, "Doubtful" for first round

At least the Spurs don't have a player on the perimeter that can kill you that we really need Tony to be out there defending. Nope, definitely no one on the Spurs like that. Certainly no one whose name rhymes with The Y Skynnard. Nope, nothing to worry about.

Seriously, I think this pretty much takes the long shot chance the Grizz had and squashes it.
