What If…The 1994 MLB Strike Never Happened (NL Edition)

The Strike of 1994 devastated baseball. It was the first time since 1904 that the World Series wasn’t played. It cut short historic seasons, deprived franchises of turning their fortunes around, and cost the game some fans who had grown up on the crack of the bat and the smell of peanuts. But on August 11, 1994, after Randy Johnson struck out Ernie Young, there was no joy in Mudville or any other town where baseball was played.

Offense over Defense: The Formula for Long-Term Success in the NFL

We’ve all heard the old adage “offense wins games, defense wins championships”. It’s been instilled in every player who played junior varsity and senior when coaches make you play both sides of the ball. I’m here to tell you that building a team around an elite defense does not work in the long-term when it comes to the cap situation, and to continue to build teams this way is asinine. I’m not saying the defense isn’t important, but to keep an elite defensive roster for more than one to two years is next to impossible.
