Passing Judgment – Top Ten Fantasy Football Busts of 2014

Drafting in fantasy sports leagues is an art, not a science.  All the preparation in the world does not guarantee or assure anything once the season starts.  Generally, most fantasy GM’s know that, but it is still a tough pill to swallow when your best laid plans do not come to fruition.  It is easy […]

Passing Judgment – Looking for the Real McCoy

If you had the first overall selection in your fantasy football league draft and took LeSean McCoy, please read this first before jumping off the proverbial ledge.  It is indisputable that McCoy has been a major disappointment thus far and can certainly be classified as a bust thus far.  It is also perfectly reasonable to […]

Passing Judgment: Vote No for League Votes

Making trades in fantasy sports league is an art, not a science.  It is so much more than offering X in exchange for Y.  Fantasy GM’s must evaluate their own needs and seek a good trading partner who has the assets that are desired.  Presumably after multiple rounds of negotiation, a deal can be struck […]

Passing Judgment: RIP Ultimate Warrior

When the news broke on April 8, 2014 that the Ultimate Warrior had passed away, I was in shock.  I thought it was a vicious rumor being spread much like the myth that the original portrayer of the character had died over 20 years ago.  But this was not a rumor.  It was confirmed by […]

It is a miracle that Aroldis Chapman is even alive, let alone planning his rehab schedule to return to the Cincinnati Reds at some point later this season.  In case you have been living under a rock or got consumed by March Madness, the Reds closer was hit in the face by a line drive […]

Passing Judgment: New York Giants – Free Agency Update

Despite winning seven of their last ten games, the 2013 season was an unmitigated disaster for the New York Giants.  There was not one aspect of their team that performed at an above average level, and it became plainly obvious that the roster was filled with questionable talent and no depth whatsoever.  It did not […]

Passing Judgment: A Brave New World

As a die-hard Mets fan, I have an innate dislike of the Atlanta Braves.  This stems back to their bitter rivalry in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s where the Braves dominated the NL East and got the upper-hand on the Mets at every occasion.  But despite not liking the Braves, I have a genuine […]

Passing Judgment: Phil Jackson Returns to the Knicks

Finally, the Knicks can be taken seriously again.  OK maybe it won’t happen that quickly, but the presence of Phil Jackson in the Knicks’ front office should hopefully keep owner James Dolan at bay – for now. Jackson will be introduced as the newest president of the Knicks at a press conference scheduled for Tuesday, […]
