KBO Week Four Rankings

Alex Kielar | June 1st, 2020

The MLB season is looking in doubt at the moment as the owners and the MLBPA cannot reach an agreement; it’s the billionaires versus the millionaires. We will be getting the MLB Draft with the shortened five rounds on June 10, but for now, all we have to fill the void is the KBO. There isn’t much movement in these rankings this week. Let’s get into this week’s rankings. Continue reading

KBO Week Three Power Rankings

Alex Kielar | May 26th, 2020

This KBO season seems to be flying by as we hit the three-week mark for these rankings. We are getting closer to hopefully having an MLB season, but in the meantime let’s continue to fill the baseball void.

KBO Week Two Power Rankings

Alex Kielar | May 18th, 2020

We are now through two weeks of the KBO season and can get a better idea of who these teams are. The team at the top of these rankings is on an absolute tear right now, while the cellar dwellers are reeling. Then you got your middle of the pack teams just trying to keep pace with the leaders and avoid the cellar. Let’s get into it.

10. SK Wyverns (1-10)

Previous: 10 

They have lost nine games in a row after picking up their first win, but they have run into two walls in the LG Twins and NC Dinos this week, two of the top-tier teams in the KBO. They lost two of the games, one versus each of them, by just one run but the other four were fairly convincing, losing by four runs or more. There really isn’t anything positive to see with this team for the future, they currently have a league-worst -37 run differential. Their lone bright spot is outfielder Dong-min Kim who is tied for the league lead with five home runs and is slashing .351/.429/.811.

9. Samsung Lions (4-8)

Previous: 6

After a promising start to the week, taking two out of three from the Heroes, the Lions fell flat on their face and got swept in convincing fashion, 14-6, 10-4, 9-2, by the KT Wiz. That puts the Lions in the spot the Wiz were in last week. Former Philadelphia Phillies and Tokyo Yakult Swallows (Nippon Pro Baseball) pitcher David Buchanan was masterful in his start against the Heroes on Wednesday, going seven shutout innings, surrendering just two hits and one walk, and striking out eight. They don’t have too consistent hitting, with just three hitters with at least 20 plate appearances slugging at least .400, and two hitting .300 or higher. Sang-su Kim went 8-for-18 this past week and is slashing .324/.477/.412. Dong-yeop Kim has the highest slugging on the team at .460, which is 31st in the league.

8. Kia Tigers (5-7)

Previous: 7

Despite winning one more game than they did last week, the Tigers had a -3 run differential this week and went 3-3. Foreign-born players Aaron Brooks and Preston Tucker have continued to dominate for them. Tucker hit two more home runs to tie for the league lead with five and went 10-for-24. He is now slashing .444/.510/.911 in 51 plate appearances. Brooks did struggle a bit in his most recent start on Sunday, giving up four earned runs and 11 over 5 1/3 innings, taking his first loss in his only decision so far. In his first start on Tuesday, however, he went seven innings and surrendered just one earned run. He currently holds a 3.00 ERA and 1.28 WHIP with 17 strikeouts.

7. Hanwha Eagles (5-7)

Previous: 8

They lost two out of three against the Tigers, but the losses were only but one run each and then took two of three from the 6-2, now 7-4, Giants. Min-woo Kim pitched a dominant seven innings in both of his starts this week while giving up just one run and striking out 14. Woo-ram Jung picked up his second and third saves on Thursday and Friday. Ju-suk Ha went 7-for-23 this week to put his slashline at .333/.349/.405.

6. KT Wiz (4-7)

Previous: 9

They started the week getting swept by the hands of the Dinos, but all three games were one run games, and then swept the Lions. The Wiz definitely aren’t as bad as they looked last week, which is what merits them a move up three spots. They scored 14, 10, and 9 runs in their wins over the Lions, while Mel Rojas Jr. continued to rake, going 10-for-25 with one homer. Rojas Jr. is now slashing .426/.460/.660 in 50 PAs. Jeong-dae Bae has also hit well, going 8-for-21 and is slashing .361/.410/.500. Baek-ho Kang is leading the team in homers with four as he hit two this week and is slashing .333/.400/.756.

5. Kiwoom Heroes (7-5)

Previous: 3

The Heroes lost four games in a row this week, making them fall two spots. Jung-hoo Lee went 7-for-21 and one homer and is the leading hitter right now, with a .372/.449/.721 slashline. Eric Jokisch, who previously pitched for the Chicago Cubs, was masterful in his two starts, pitched through six innings in both games. He gave up just one unearned run and five hits and struck out ten batters. His ERA is now sitting at 0.53 after three starts so far this season.

4. Lotte Giants (7-4)

Previous: 1

After being the only undefeated team remaining after week one, the Giants only won four games this past week. They had a -9 run differential and are not looking as dominant as they did last week when I had said it could be them and the Dinos on a crash course. Right-hander Dan Straily continued to strike batters out, as he struck out 11 more in his first start of the week and four more in his second to put his total at 19. This is tied for the league lead and he is averaging over 10 strikeouts per nine. He pitched a seven-inning, three-hit shutout in the first start; his ERA is now 2.12. Jun-woo Jeon his two homers to up his total to four, while Ah-seop Son is slashing .405/.532/.541 through 49 PAs.

3. Doosan Bears (7-4)

Previous: 4

They won both of their series and went 4-2 this week, using their solid hitting to boost them. They have six hitters with over 35 PAs still hitting over .300, while José Miguel Fernández continues to rake with a .479/.519/.729 slashline and two homers. Jae-il Oh is also hitting over .400 with a .404 batting average. Their pitching hasn’t been too consistent, but their hitting has been able to bail them out.

2. LG Twins (7-4)

Previous: 5

The Twins were on a roll, winning six games in a row before losing their latest game on Sunday versus the Heroes. Their winning streak started when they handed the top team in these rankings, the Dinos, their first loss last week. Roberto Ramos hit two more homers to get to four on the season, as he slashes .378/.477/.784, Hyun-soo Kim is slashing .400/.438/.644 and Chun-woong Lee is slashing .333/.391/.429.

1. NC Dinos (10-1)

Previous: 2

Their only loss this season was to Twins, who are certainly a legitimate team, and they have a +31 run differential. The Dinos have had a great combination of pitching and hitting. They have three pitchers who still haven’t surrendered a single run, including Chang-mo Koo who has pitched 14 innings while surrounding only six hits and three walks, and striking out 18 batters. Sung-bum Na hit three homers this week to increase his total to four, and Min-woo Park is slashing .432/.479/.636. They have two hitters, Jin-sung Kang and Min-suk Park, who have three homers in addition to Na’s four.

Goat vs a Tiger: Michael Jordan vs Joe Exotic

The Goat vs a Tiger: A Battle Between Michael Jordan and the Tiger King?

Alex Kielar | May 17th, 2020

I know what you’re thinking, this year has been crazy and weird enough without a hypothetical meeting between the greatest basketball player of all time (sit down LeBron riders) and a crazy tiger zoo owner. It’s May 2020 and I thought I would be writing about the Yankees being already at least ten games ahead in the AL East, not whatever this is. But here we are. “The Last Dance” and “Tiger King” have been the two most-watched shows during this quarantine, making this only right.

UFC Fight Night – Alistair Overeem vs Walt Harris

UFC on ESPN+ 29 – Glover Teixeira vs Anthony Smith: Preview, Odds, Picks

Steve Seufert | May 13th, 2020

Two UFC cards in five days? Sign me up. Dana White has gone all out and managed to land a card for a Wednesday ESPN+ event that looks to be stacked with recognizable talent. Much like UFC 249, this event will take place in Jacksonville, Florida at the Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena. This card is headlined by legendary light heavyweight Glover Teixeira and recent title contender, Anthony Smith. I expect complete chaos throughout the card, shedding more positive light on the UFC as they continue to pump out entertainment.

eNascar Pro Invitational Will Look To Fill The Breach For NASCAR Starved Fans

Dale Money  | March 20th, 2020

Last Sunday was meant to be an exciting day of NASCAR at Atlanta, however, due to the Coronavirus scare that was not to be. All of the race events would be suspended at Atlanta Motor Speedway and also the following weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Instead, a replacement race of sorts was assembled by both iRacing and NASCAR to fill the void left by the missed action. It would be broadcast live by Podium eSports on the popular streaming service Twitch. Continue reading

Dr. Beth Sullivan  | March 12th, 2020 

The beginning of March is normally a major time in many sports.

NASCAR Xfinity Series Las Vegas DFS

Brandon Braasch | February 21st, 2020 

First off, I would like to wish Ryan Newman a speedy recovery and I hope to see him at the track as soon as possible. This week the NASCAR Xfinity Series heads to Las Vegas for the Boyd Gaming 300. Just like the Daytona 500, the Boyd Gaming 300 does not look good weather-wise. Most likely qualifying will get rained out so the field will be set by points. I’ll be giving you the driver I think will dominate the race, a couple of contenders, and an underdog that will surprise people with a strong run.

Denny Hamlin Wins Second Straight Daytona 500 Amid Last Lap Crash

Dale Money | February 18th, 2020 

Denny Hamlin’s second straight Daytona 500 win, would come down to a photo finish, between both himself and Ryan Blaney. This was the second closest finish in Daytona history, the closest, in fact, being in 2016 when Hamlin would beat out Martin Truex Jr. by 0.010 seconds. Chris Buescher, David Ragan, Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Brendan Gaughan, Corey Lajoie, Ryan Newman, and Kyle Larson would fill out the top 10.

It is now time to kick off a brand spanking new season with the Super Bowl of Nascar events the Daytona 500.

Corrigan’s Gambling Corner: Week Three

Daniel Corrigan | January 26th, 2020

Welcome back. We are on the board in 2020 with a solid 3-1 week. I have decided to give more picks rather than just a “lock of the week” or an “over of the week.” I know I wake up in the morning and instantly check the lines for the day. Which is weird, because I live in Ohio, a place that won’t allow me to place bets.

Premier League Winter Update

Nick Jehamy| January 9th, 2020

The English Premier League may be the most competitive of the top European leagues with multiple top tier clubs in play. In the last decade, we have seen four different clubs win the league title with Manchester City doing so the most with four titles including winning the Premier League the last two seasons. We may only be at the halfway mark but it seems like, barring any freakish losing streak, the top spot in the Premier League ha already been locked up. Let’s see what the table looks like and who is contending for the rest of the cup qualifying positions. Continue reading

Ligue 1 Winter Update

Nick Jehamy | January 6th, 2020 

The top French league, Ligue 1, has been absolutely dominated by Paris Saint Germain through the last eight seasons, winning seven of the last eight by a rather wide margin in most. Halfway through the 2019-2020 season, PSG is at the top of the table once again, will they hold their lead? Who will contend for the top spot as well as the rest of the cup qualifying positions? Let’s take a look at the clubs in that position right now. The top two clubs at the end of the season qualify for the Champions League group stage, third place qualifies for the Champions League qualifiers and the fourth-place club qualifies for the Europa League group stage.

Harry Kane Out Indefinitely

Nick Jehamy | January 3rd, 2020

Veteran striker Harry Kane left the pitch injured on Wednesday during Tottenham’s New Year’s Day game against Southampton. Kane had to leave the match in the 74th minute as the Spurs went on to lose 1-0. Jose Mourhino was worried after the match that he may be without his star striker for some time, and sadly Mourhino was right. Kane suffered a tear in his left hamstring and will be out for an undisclosed amount of the time as Tottenham’s medical staff will keep an eye on him throughout the next few weeks.

Serie A Winter Update

Nick Jehamy | January 3rd, 2020

Italian soccer league, Serie A, for once is not just Juventus sitting at the top of the table with Napoli just barely holding on behind them enough to make things interesting. Napoli is currently out of the top six, whereas Juventus sits tied atop the table in jeopardy of winning another championship to make it nine in a row. Inter Milan is tied at the top with Juventus, followed by Lazio, Roma, Atalanta, and Cagliari. Can Lazio or Roma catch up with the two at the top? Who will place in the top six cup-qualifying positions at the end of the season? Let’s take a look at the clubs in that position right now. The top four clubs at the end of the season qualify for the Champions League, fifth place qualifies for the Europa League group stage and the sixth place club qualifies for the Europa League Qualifiers.

2020 Citrus Bowl Preview & Prediction

Nick Popio | January 1st, 2020

Alabama and Michigan will meet up for the fifth time in series history as they collide in a mouth-watering Citrus Bowl matchup. The last time these two met the Tide clobbered the Wolverines 41-14 in 2012. The last bowl meeting was the 2000 Orange Bowl in Tom Brady‘s farewell game at Michigan. The maize and blue outlasted the Tide by one due to a missed extra point.

Happy New Year, Here’s The List to Kill All Lists

Josh Elias | January 1st, 2020

You know what I can’t stand? Lists.

All these lists are around in the sports world that try to rank players, teams, positions, eras, and whatever else people can find to put numbers next to in order to start some sort of ridiculous argument among Redditors and Twitterers and Facebookites.

Well, I’m tired of it. I’ve seen too many lists – especially all these best blankety-blank-blank of the 2010s lists.

And now that the 2010s have officially come to a close, I sincerely hope sports listicles go away with the end of the decade.

It’s time for me to play my part in killing lists by making the lengthiest, most useless list of all.

Here’s The Scorecrow‘s official ranking of the Top 2010 Athletes of the 2010s, organized not at all by any sort of skill level or accomplishments, but instead by who pops into my head first. I will also provide zero analysis beyond the list itself because no one else that writes lists ever does to any meaningful extent. So why would I?

You’re welcome. Continue reading

La Liga Winter Update

Håland Signs with Dortmund

Nick Jehamy  | December 30th, 2019

Erling Håland is one of the most sought after young talents in the game. At the age of only 19, the Norwegian striker has the potential to be really something special. Håland was being looked at by European giants like Manchester United, RB Leipzig, and Juventus, but in the end, the winner of the Erling Håland lottery goes to the Bundesliga’s Borussia Dortmund. Håland signed a deal worth 20 million euros that will keep the young striker at Dortmund for four years until 2024.
