1. Clemson will win the National Championship
Lead by Heisman Trophy favorite quarterback Deshaun Watson, the Tigers and Coach Dabo Swinney return an absolutely loaded offense that may actually be better than last year. Watsons running mate, Wayne Gallman will lead the Tigers backfield, and Artavis Scott, the team’s leading receiver, returns along with the team’s most talented pass catcher, Mike Williams, who missed all but the first drive of the 2015 season with a neck injury. Tight end Jordan Leggett is a freak athlete and one of the top tight ends in the nation. Clemson also returns 3 starting linemen.
This Red Sox team could not frustrate me more if they tried. On Tuesday night, they dropped game 2 of their must-sweep series with Tampa Bay despite taking a 3-1 lead into the 7th inning. Hanley Ramirez went 3 for 4 with 2 RBI’s; one of which coming on a 324 foot solo home run that he wrapped around the pesky pole in right.
Clay Buchholz has been the versatile horse the Red Sox needed coming down the stretch of the 2016 season. The man that many fans were trying to chase out of town with burning torches just a month ago, has settled into the role of a pitcher who will see time as a spot starter, but will spend most of his time in the bullpen.
Every year one lucky person either wins the right or gets lucky enough to have the first overall pick in the fantasy football draft. However, drafting first comes with the most pressure because all eyes are on you to take the stud player of the year. If you pull a Cleveland and take someone that's a total bust and pans out horribly then everyone in the league is going to hold that over you. That's why you need to make sure that the player absolutely has the ability to gain massive numbers of points and is reliable on a weekly basis.
There’s really no way around the fact that this series against Tampa Bay is a must-sweep. The Rays are a shitty team. If the Red Sox want to be a legitimate playoff contender, they have can not be losing games to shitty teams. Last week's split with Tampa was a disgrace and we can not have a repeat of that. Coming off of a loss due to yet another night of failure by our dreadful bullpen, this team needed a win. Luckily, they had their ace on the mound Monday night attempting to pick up his 18th win and become the MLB wins leader in the process.
We have all heard/read by now that San Francisco QB, Colin Kaepernick, sat down during the playing of the nation anthem. Well, like the title states, that disgusts me. This guy is so far off on his reasoning why he did not stand and honor this country.
It is fantasy football time again. We all love it, that is until we hate our team by week three. So this year, 2016, don't hate your team. Sounds simple, is simple. I am going to outline some players to target during your draft and during your season this year.
Saturday night was yet another big start for David Price. The Sox came into Saturday the losers of 3 straight games with their supposed ace taking the mound. I say “supposed ace” because Rick Porcello is still the ace of this staff, not Price. Nonetheless, Price did exactly what he’s paid to do and put an end to the Sox recent skid. The Price haters were out in full force after the offense put two quick runs on the board that David proceeded to give right back. Fortunately, after a rough second inning he was able to settle in and keep the Royals’ hitters off balance for the remainder of his outing. Price made it through 6 innings with just the 2 runs allowed and got the win that he needed. Boston’s bats were able to come out and take over from here.
It’s kind of hard to pinpoint why exactly the Red Sox lost Friday night’s game against the Royals. Was it Steven Wright’s atrocious first inning? Maybe. Was it the fact that they left 12 runners on base? Could be. Throughout the entire game you just kind of sat there waiting for them to do something to finally get back into it and that moment just never came. Let’s just start off by talking about the first inning. In the top half, Steven Wright was nothing like the All Star we’ve seen all year.
