In case you missed the news yesterday, Free-agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury has reached agreement on a seven-year contract with the New York Yankees pending a physical exam, a baseball source told ESPN.com. According to multiple reports, the deal will pay Ellsbury $153 million over seven years and includes an option for an eighth year that could increase the overall value of the contract to $169 million. Ellsbury’s deal exceeds Carl Crawford’s seven-year, $142 million contract with the Boston Red Sox in December 2010. [Continue Reading]
That makes two signings in recent weeks both of which are, well, interesting. The first thing that stands out to me about these signings is that these are two players that are OFTEN injured. Ellsbury is made of glass. However, when he’s healthy and he’s on he’s a top 10 player in baseball. I’m not sold entirely on McCann. He hasn’t been healthy and he doesn’t hit like he use to. So clearly, I’m not sure the Yankees made the right moves here.
They do have potential to be great signings. McCann is a gritty player the Yankees like and Ellsbury is a supreme talent. The problem is – the Yankees have no pitching, no second baseman, no third baseman, and I’m not sure you can rely on Mark Teixeira to be the top power source for the team. So while these signings may get some buzz and sell tickets – the Yankees still have the problem they have EVERY YEAR! Their pitching is not going to win anything.

Carolina’s defense could really be a difference maker when it comes to winning a Super Bowl. Ultimately, I’m not sure Cam Newton has the chops for a title run, but that defense will keep them in the game. I couldn’t tell you who we’d pick to win it all right now. Denver? New Orleans? We will see…

Is it too early for this? Once Thanksgiving passes I guess it’s all things Christmas so why not? Plus, I think it’s always appropriate to put some hot cheerleader galleries up so we’re completely confident we made a good decision with this one.
Last month we put together a collection of cheerleaders dressed up for Halloween which was awesome. Today, we are putting together a collection of cheerleaders showing their Christmas spirit. The NFL gets the nod because let’s face it their cheerleaders are awesome. Just awesome.

Josh Gordon – welcome to Calvin Johnson-type status. Alshon Jeffery – Good heavens. There’s been a little bit of a changing of the guard when it comes to elite WRs in the NFL this season. Dez Bryant should go a little less with his mouth and watch these guys.

If you happened to tune into the Alabama vs. Auburn game yesterday you may have not realized you could be (or even are) watching one of the sports team dynasties of our generation. When I say generation I’m talking about millennials – you know 18-34, which is rather broad, but about that age group.
Interestingly enough there have been several teams you could consider dynasties in that age range. If we’re talking 18-34, we’re really talking about those tuned into sports from 1990 to today. The fact is; there are probably a lot more than we even realize, but we will do our best to stay in the major sports.

I hate that Trent Richardson is on this list as one of the NFL’s ‘Biggest Surprises’. That guy has been absolutely terrible. I’ve never in my life seen so many 0 or 1 yard runs in my life. Anyway, cheers after the holiday.

We still have some interesting developments in store before the the 2013-2014 college football bowls are announced. I think we could be looking at Florida State vs. Alabama which is pretty solid. I wouldn’t be surprised if State loses once. For you betting folks, Alabama isn’t losing to Auburn no chance.

Some people had big time visions for the Indianapolis Colts this year. Well, the curse of Trent Richardson may be in full-effect. I can’t blame the Colts though. They felt like they were going places and Ahmad Bradshaw went down. In retrospect, Donald Brown probably could have filled in amply, but they didn’t have confidence in him. I don’t fault them for making a move, I actually respect them for it. Richardson still may work out. Right now, however, they are big losers.
