Victor Martinez is healthy and crushing baseballs again

A healthy Martinez is bad news for the rest of the American League. It is indescribably great for the Detroit Tigers to have a healthy Victor Martinez batting in the cleanup spot for them. When a hamstring issue kept him sidelined for a good chunk of spring training this year, the fanbase collectively cringed. Thankfully, Martinez returned in glorious form. He has picked up right where he ended 2014 when he finished runner-up for the American League MVP Award. So far this year he's hitting .341/.396/.625 with a wOBA of .433 and has been worth 188 wRC+. On top of that, he was recently named...

Capitals vs Penguins Game 4: What Worked and What Didn't

Heading into Game 5, we take a look at what worked and what didn't in Game 4. If the Caps by chance encountered them a genie who offered them a guarantee that they could replicate their on-ice product from Monday night, but the result would remain obscured, would they take it? You could probably bet on it. Too bad. The Caps didn't come remotely close to capturing the dominance they saw in Game 3, and lost in overtime after playing far below their capabilities for most of the  night. Here is our breakdown of Game 1, Game 2, and Game 3. Now let's take a look at what worked and what...
