Big Tuna Revealed: An SJ-Exclusive Interview with Parcells Biographer, Carlo DeVito

giants-devito

A couple weeks ago the wonderful people here at Sports Jabber asked me if I would be interested in conducting another interview for the website and then writing another story from what I learned. I imagine it took me about 2 seconds before I replied that of course I was willing to take on another special project for the people that have been so good [...]

The Learning Curve: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

albert-pujols-nlcs-2

As a sports fan, we all know that it’s going to be a rollercoaster ride of emotions throughout the years as we root for superstars, underachievers, and overachievers that suit up and wear the same colors that most of us are willing to proudly display somewhere in our everyday life. But whenever you boil everything down, it usually falls into one of three categories. The good, the bad, and the ugly. [...]

The Learning Curve: Extra Credit: Mayweather Gets Even With Ortiz

lc

I’m sure it won’t stay up for long but this is a great video showcasing the illegal headbutt, the hugging, and then the cheap shot that ended up finishing the fight in the fourth round. While I plan on writing an actual piece on Mayweather and how polarizing he is as a boxer, I don’t see how anyone can hate the guy solely because of this. Ortiz literally launches himself at Mayweather [...]

Roberto Clemente: A Lost Legend

chasing3000

If you’re a big fan of baseball, you know his name. But when people talk about the all-time greats, he seems to get passed over. Gehrig. Ruth. Mays. Aaron. Mantle. Williams. Clemente? If you just raised your eyebrows don’t worry, you aren’t alone. But when you talk to the people who got to watch him play, watch their eyes light up when you ask about Clemente. The first thing mentioned is obviously the plane crash [...]

Bautista and the Blue Jays Caught Stealing

bautistatorontobluejaysvtampaba

If you haven’t heard yet, Jose Bautista is a really good baseball player. And when he’s playing up north of the border, he’s one of the best and most feared hitters in baseball. After his first boost in 2010 that saw him go from a season high of 16 home runs to a total of 54 and his OPS jump .240 points the rumors started swirling about steroids. But with the lack of a positive test, the claim that Bautista made an adjustment to his swing…

The Learning Curve: My Love for the RFA Process

lc

In free agency, there are so many rumors and double talk that for the most part, you’re better off just sitting back and watching the dominoes fall rather then try and predict who is going to sign where. My favorite times are when a player claims that don’t want to really leave the team that they are on but the money is simply to enticing, it always makes for an interesting [...]

NFL Lockout: The 5 Biggest Bullet Points

eagles 24 0827 sds

So I’m not sure if you guys heard or not, but the NFL lockout is finally over. So now that they waited until the last possible moment and there have been probably 2,000 stories written about the fact that yes, pro football is back. Other then celebrating the fact that we will have football on Sundays, this blog is really me deciding the five things are the most important coming out of this massive mess. So, what made the cut? First things first, the most important thing in my opinion…

The Learning Curve: Why Baseball Needs a Salary Cap (and Not the Kind You Think)

84924701JM112_2009_Baseball

If you’re a baseball fan then you’ve probably noticed that for the first time in a very long time the Pittsburgh Pirates were in first place in the NL Central in the month of July. The same team that hasn’t had a winning season since 1992 finally looks to be on upswing and should finish above .500 for the first time in nearly two decades. And with [...]

The Learning Curve: Is Going Overseas Hurting the Players?

deron-williams-turkey-nba-lockout

With Deron Williams officially signing a contract to play over in Turkey, Kobe looking for a million a month to join him, and multiple other players at least pretending to be considering going overseas, there is less talk about the NBA lockout and more about which players are going where. As an avid NBA follower I’ve been paying close attention and I can honestly say I’ve heard more about…

Hello everyone and welcome to today’s “The Stack” with me, Nathan Stacken. We’re back from vacation and ready to go. There is lots to talk about so let’s get right to it and see what made the stack: 1. Japan wins women’s world cup on penalty kicks. In and ending that seems unsatisfying to many …
