    Spike Friedman

    In case you were busy finding out you cleared revocable waivers at work, here are the top six stories you missed in sports on Monday: Browns quarterback Johnny "Football" Manziel put together a middling performance in his t...

  2. The 30: deGreat Debate

    Jonah Keri

    Baseball's non-waiver trade deadline has passed, and the winners and losers have been toasted and chided. Much to the Phillies' chagrin, however, not every team that stood pat joined Ruben Amaro's squad in earning the "loser&quot...

    Michael Baumann

    Thursday is baseball's non-waiver trade deadline, and I couldn't be happier, because it means we can all stop talking about "eating salary." One of the big draws of sports fandom is the civic unity and shared identity...

    Jonah Keri

    Baseball's non-waiver trade deadline is now just one day away, yet in these waning moments ...; almost nothing big has happened. Following a flurry of early and interesting moves that included the A's Jeff Samardzija blockbuster and se...

    Matt Borcas

    Happy Halloween! While you're out trick-or-treating, I'll be inside watching Bengals-Dolphins, mourning Giovani Bernard's sad failure to launch. I thought we'd be talking about him as a fantasy stud by now, but Marvin Lewis remains stubbornly committ...

    Matt Borcas

    Don't be alarmed if you notice a preponderance of C.J. Spiller jerseys in your neighborhood on Thursday night. Spiller was easily the most frequently cited player in the fantasy horror stories you guys sent me after Week 8, and thus should make a won...

  7. Week 7 Fantasy Football Preview: If It Feels Wrong, Do It Anyway

    Matt Borcas

    It's hard to believe, but in a couple days we'll be halfway through fantasy football's regular season. Are you livin' on a prayer? God knows I am. Tom Brady and Ray Rice have sunk my dynasty league team's ship to an unthinkable 1-5, and unless things...

  8. Week 6 Fantasy Football Review: No, You Can't Un-Draft These Guys...

    Matt Borcas

    I don't know about you, but I often find fantasy football to be an endless well of disappointment. Injuries, surprise benchings, and Mike Shanahan tend to make this impossible to avoid. Metaphorically speaking, I sometimes feel like I'm just trying t...

    Matt Borcas

    Daniel Radcliffe named his fantasy football team Barkevious Mingo's Mum, and now that I know that, my life is complete. Wizards are surely mankind's finest fake football players, and they apparently boast unrivaled team-naming prowess, so we can assu...

    Matt Borcas

    What is reality? I think Bill Belichick asked that at a press conference once, and it's a question I've been pondering mightily regarding Philip Rivers. In the corporeal sense, sure, I'll concede that he's real ... but is he actually fantasy's thi...

    Matt Borcas

    We're not even a quarter into the season, and it seems like almost every starting running back has suffered an injury. I'm reading Stephania Bell's blog as avidly as I read Harry Potter back in the day, and I was a Harry Potter freak. What's more, ou...

  12. Week 2 Fantasy Football Review: U Mad Bro?

    Matt Borcas

    Week 2 awards, Week 3 waiver-wire advice, and a flying pig to boot. Michael Vick had an incredibly productive game on Sunday, and his stats don't begin to tell the story. While a line that includes 428 yards, a 63.9 completion percentage, two pass...

    Matt Borcas

    Week 1 is finally behind us, and with it the first-day-of-school nervousness that accompanies all new beginnings. Yes, Adrian Peterson can still make a 78-yard run look very, very easy. And yes, Brandon Weeden remains wholly averse to avoiding triple...

    Matt Borcas

    If it's possible for someone who shares a bed with one of the world's leading supermodels to have a bad night, Tom Brady's Thursday must've sucked. I assume Brady howled like a werewolf at the sight of erstwhile blood brother Wes Welker snagging two ...

  15. Trade Deadline Goes Out With a Whimper

    Jonah Keri

    Major League Baseball's non-waiver deadline came and went with no major trades happening after most sellers refused to budge from their price tags, negating what was widely predicted to be the best seller's market in years. The biggest name changi...

    We mock general managers who, with a team on the edge of contention and the non-waiver trade deadline looming on the horizon, fail to cash in their impending free agents and pricey veterans for whatever they can get. The trade deadline is the ultimat...
