Team to Watch Out For: San Jose Sharks

With the regular season wrapping up soon and the playoffs right around the corner, plenty of teams are still fighting for a playoff spot. Some may only be a few points away from a  wild card, while some are getting their golf clubs ready for the upcoming offseason. But there are some teams who are hungry for a shot at Lord Stanley, especially this Western Conference powerhouse. They have never won the Stanley Cup, which makes them more hungry every year.

Ken Griffey Jr. & Mike Piazza: Your 2016 HOF Inductees

Every day is a special day in the city of Cooperstown, New York, home of the Baseball Hall of Fame, but what’s more exciting is adding additional players to this legendary building.

What To Do With The White Sox?

Typical for me to start off my BDSSP debut talking about my favorite baseball team. Being in the AL Central, you would expect a lot of scratching and clawing for first place in the division. However, the Twins are one of the worst teams in the league, and are so far behind everyone that there are no worries about getting last place. Nonetheless, when you have players like Jose Abreu, Chris Sale and newly acquired Todd Frazier, you would expect at least division champs, but they’re not quite there yet.
