So as I sit on my couch today to watch a potential series clinching game for the Chicago Cubs at home against the St. Louis Cardinals I am left saying “What The Fuck”! Who is making the MLB playoff schedules? This game with the most popular team in the playoffs playing against the team with the best record in baseball is being played at 4:30pm in the eastern time zone. What the Fuck? Now that would be bad enough if even one of the teams resided in the eastern time zone, with most fans still at work even on the east coast. But both teams are in the central time zone where it will be 3:30 and the west coast can enjoy the game over their lunch break.
Major League Baseball, get your heads out of your asses! The playoffs are the only time your snail paced sport is more exciting than reading Apples terms and conditions agreement, and you are burying all your games in the daytime as if it is week one of your 60 week season! You are missing a great opportunity to appeal to casual sports fans and squandering countless dollars.
It is clear to me that the season is just too too long. They are trying to rush the most important portion of their season simply because they have run out of time in the calendar year. Let me offer up a simple and reasonable solution to your problem. First, the amount of non playoff games needs to be reduced. This can be done by doing one or both of the following. Eliminate the preseason, players train year round and no longer need the time to get in shape, so it is really only useful to let young minor league players get a shot in a non typical major league situation. This year players started arriving at camp February 19 and the regular season didn't start until April 6th. Next, shorten the regular season. 162 games is absurd - lets make it a clean 100.
Now with all this extra time we will fix the post season. First off no more one game wildcard “Playoff”. Even as the season is currently constructed, this needs to be a minimum 3 games. Next, each series thereafter should be 7 games. It makes no sense to jump from 5 to 7 in the conference finals.
NO DAY GAMES DURING THE WEEK! These games are so buried that a casual fan like myself can barely tell you which teams are playing. You want your games on in prime time when you can make more advertising dollars and people don't have to call out of work to attend the games. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, give the team with the best record home field advantage in the Damn World Series! It boggles the mind that the winner of the exhibition All Star game decides home field and that it makes more sense than the previous method of alternating years. I don't give a shit if the All Star game wasn't competitive, that's not what it is about. It is about seeing all the best players in one city and having fun.
While there are several other things about the sport that I would like to change, this should be a good start. I can't promise my changes will make the game exciting, but maybe at least you won't have to worry about a summer sport having a game snowed out in the championship Series.
To most Cubs fans, myself included, this season has far surpassed expectations. Entering the 2015 campaign, Cubs prospects like Kris Bryant, Jorge Soler, and Addison Russell formed a legitimate basis for optimism within the organization and its fan base. But the fruits of Theo Epstein’s labor weren’t expected to ripen this fast. Well, ripen they have, and the 2015 Cubs find themselves on the verge of clinching a playoff spot for the first time since 2008. Indeed, Joe Maddon’s squad has Chicagoland dreaming of a 2015 World Series birth. Unfortunately, there are two notable barriers that may block the Cubs route to the Fall Classic, and they have names: Jason Hammel and Kyle Hendricks, known together as “the shitty duo.”
As suggested, the Cubs starting rotation depth is their most glaring concern heading into the 2015 playoffs. The shitty duo, comprising the Cubs projected third and fourth playoff starters, has degenerated down the stretch of the season. Since the all-star break, the shitty duo has struggled to string together respectable outings. If the shitty duo doesn’t markedly improve its performance, do the Cubs stand a strong chance of making it to the World Series? Recent history suggests not.
National League Champion Third and Fourth Starting Playoff Pitchers
2nd Half ERA
2015 Chicago Cubs
Shitty Duo number 1 (Hammel)
Shitty Duo Number 2 (Hendricks)
Data Extracted from Fangraphs
A pitcher’s second half of the season ERA (“second half ERA”) is more likely to have predictive value for the playoffs than his season long ERA. As such, the figure above displays the shitty duo’s second half ERA relative to that of the third and fourth starters on the last five national league champions. Remarkably, the last five national league champions didn’t have a single back end playoff starter with a second half ERA over 4.7. Further, three of the past five national league champions had third and fourth playoff starters with second half ERAs under 3.6. Thus, the shitty duo’s 5.355 collective second half ERA has to be disconcerting to Cubs fans.
The preceding analysis provides objective value to what baseball fans already know: a team needs excellent starting pitching to get to the World Series. To rebuff that axiom, the Cubs must deliver on at least one of the following two scenarios: 1). Jon Lester and Jake Arrieta pitch nearly flawless throughout the 2015 playoffs; or 2). the Cubs produce a lot of runs whenever either shitty duo partner takes the mound. Of course, the shitty duo could decide that sucking ass isn’t what it’s cracked up to be (pun intended) and start pitching better, but that seems unlikely.
Regardless of what transpires throughout the next month, the Cubs should continue to develop and improve over the coming years. On that note, I speak for Cubs nation when I say go Cubs and fuck the Cardinals!!!!
The Michael Jordan v. Lebron James debate has become an intriguing hot button issue over the past several years. Unfortunately, people on both sides of the argument tend to support their conclusions by providing a series of vague and unsubstantiated claims (e.g. “Lebron is a better all around player than Jordan was”). Indeed, an objective, careful analysis of each player’s career is required to arrive at the proper verdict. Well, the verdict is in, and Jordan wins.
Let's start the comparison between the two by recognizing their macro accomplishments and statistics. Jordan won 6 Finals and 6 Finals MVPs to Lebron’s 2 and 2 respectively. Jordan won 10 scoring titles to Lebron's 1. Jordan won a defensive player of the year award to Lebron's 0. Jordan lead the league in steals 3 times to Lebron's 0. Jordan was a 5 time league MVP to Lebron's 4.
In Jordan's best scoring season, he averaged 37.1 points per game. In Lebron's best scoring season, he averaged 30.0 points per game. The 1988-89 NBA season rendered Jordan's best rebound and assist totals, averaging 8.0 per game in each category. Lebron's best single season rebounds per game output was 7.9, and his best single season assists per game output was 8.6.
Or course, it can be challenging to delineate the meaning of these statistics when they are fragmented into their individual elements. Advanced analytics are useful to navigate through this process. Player Efficiency Rating (“PER”) measures a player’s dominance relative to the league average, which is standardized to 15 each year. Jordan tops Lebron in this metric, even when including Jordan’s years with the Wizards. Through age 30, Jordan had a career PER of 29.8; Lebron is 30 and has a career PER of 27.7. Win Shares per 48 Minutes (“WS/48”) calculates a player's contributions to his team’s wins. Through age 30, Jordan had a WS/48 of .273. Through age 30, Lebron has a WS/48 of .240. For greater context, this differential is similar to that between Hakeem Olajuwon and Horace Grant (WS/48 of .177 and .147 respectively).
Jordan’s decisive analytical advantage over Lebron is easy to fathom after careful study of their game film. As a scorer, Jordan had an incredibly diverse range of moves and shots to complement his near flawless footwork. As such, he was able to counterattack virtually any defensive tactic that his opposition presented. Lebron, conversely, relies on his speed and athleticism to earn open shots, and he hasn’t shown much ability to weave though and around traffic. Thus, it is easier for defenses to force the ball out of his hands.
The game film and statistical record also unequivocally demonstrate that Jordan was a decidedly more accurate jump shooter than Lebron. According to the Basketball Reference Shot Finder (“Shot Finder”), Lebron is a career 37% shooter on jump shots between 15-20 feet. Unfortunately, Shot Finder only tracks back to the early 2000s. We do know, however, that 40-year old Jordan shot over 42% on jumpers between 15-20 feet in the 2002-03 NBA season. It’s fair to assume that he shot a significantly higher percentage from that distance throughout his prime.
Lebron’s relatively inadequate jump shot wouldn’t translate well to Jordan’s era. In the 80s and 90s, teams ubiquitously stacked the paint with 3 to 5 defenders to stop the best perimeter scorers. Teams could get away with this strategy partly because the game had yet to evolve stretch fours and three point specialists to help stretch the court. For instance, John Paxson, Jordan’s prime years backcourt complement, never attempted more than 1.7 threes per game. By contrast, last season Kyrie Irving attempted 5.0 threes per game, and Kevin Love attempted 5.2 threes per game. The resulting court space opens up driving lanes for Lebron that Jordan didn’t have access to. Moreover, the illegal defense rule provided the only regulation designed to deter teams from packing the paint. The rule was fairly nebulous and difficult to enforce. Consequently, teams simply ignored it. Today, perimeter players, like Lebron, are the beneficiaries of a clear-cut defensive three seconds rule. Making matters more ominous for players like Jordan, hand-checking, now illegal, permitted defenders to guide their man away from the paint. In sum, perimeter players in the Jordan era needed to rely on their jump shots more than their contemporary counterparts.
Jordan’s greatness over Lebron is also salient with respect to their defensive abilities. Jordan had quicker hands and more adept anticipation skills than Lebron. This is evidenced by Jordan’s greater steal percentage (percent of opponent’s possessions that end with a steal by that player). As noted, Jordan lead the league in steals three times and won a defensive player of the year award. Lebron is not likely to accomplish either feat.
Lastly, Jordan’s killer instinct has gone unmatched since his retirement. NBA fans during the Jordan era knew that when the Bulls were playing and the game was on the line, Jordan would fearlessly take over and, more often than not, succeed in doing so. Lebron’s clutch time performances have been mercurial at best. Sometimes he will play aggressively down the stretch, whereas other times he will persistently pass off the game's most important possessions to his team's ancillary players. This style of play has not gone without consequence; Lebron’s fourth quarter passivity arguably cost the Heat the 2011 Finals. Throughout that series, Lebron averaged just 3 points per game in the final period.
When Lebron has taken the clutch shots, he has failed considerably more often than not. According to Shot Finder, Lebron is 37-122, 30.3%, in the regular season and 8-23, 34.7%, in the playoffs when shooting to tie or take the lead with 24 seconds or less in the fourth quarter or overtime and his team tied or trailing by 3 points or less. Jordan, in the playoffs was 9 of 18, 50%, under the same circumstances.
Even though Lebron’s career is far from over, it’s hard to imagine that his future play will undermine the analysis contained herein. Lebron has achieved a prodigious level of success, and he is indisputably one of the greatest players of all time. But he’s no Mike.
We are just days away from the biggest party of the summer!
And this year the biggest party gets even bigger with the WrestleMania treatment of a four-hour show. It looks like what could be a solid card with matches like Kevin Owens vs Cesaro (not confirmed yet but likely), John Cena vs Seth Rollins the Divas Revolution elimination match and of course the rematch of the most memorable moment in recent wrestling history with The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar. But there still seems to be a little missing from a proper SummerSlam feel.
This could be a good thing though. I remember thinking after the Raw before WrestleMania that the buildup didn’t really live up to proper WrestleMania level build up. The show itself, however, was absolutely phenomenal.
I’m not saying that SummerSlam will be on par with WrestleMania 31, but if you are going to make it a four-hour show, you need to make sure it has a four-hour show feel.
So, to help you get ready for this year’s version of the biggest show of the summer, let’s take a look back at once of the earliest editions of the summer spectacle.
To give us the full late 80s early 90s feel, we are welcomed to the show by the glorious over the top voice of Vince McMahon. McMahon introduces tonight’s double, yes that’s right DOUBLE main event of Hulk Hogan vs Earthquake and The Ultimate Warrior vs Ravishing Rick Rude for the WWF Championship in a FIFTEEN FOOT HIGH steel cage! Thinking about it, back then I really don’t think commentators were allowed to talk about the steel cage without referencing the fact that it was indeed a fifteen foot high steel cage.
We are then taken into The Spectrum in Philadelphia with a rabid crowd ready for the show to begin. Our play by play man tonight is Vince himself. On color, a man that McMahon accurately describes as “the reason for the roar of the crowd” Rowdy Roddy Piper. Obviously need to take a minute here. How heartbreaking was Piper’s passing? Not to sound too cynical here, but with how some of the stars from that era are looking these days, did you EVER think that Piper would be one of the next to go?
What a legend he was! Still on the short list of best talkers ever. Nobody could generate heat like Piper could. I’ve heard several stars say it before I firmly agree that there would be no Hulk Hogan and no Hulkamania if the Rock N’ Wrestling Connection that skyrocketed the WWF into the mainstream didn’t revolve around everyone wanting to see Hogan just kick Piper’s ass! RP brought you in and gave you a show that you would remember. “Just when they think they’ve got the answers, I change the questions!” Thank you Roddy – we’ll miss you!
The Rockers (Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty)
Power & Glory (Hercules and Paul Roma) w/Slick
First off, McMahon says that our first match should be, and I quote, “A hum-dinger!” … just thought that was worth sharing!
The Rockers head down to the ring, but not nearly as fast as they normally do. Reason – Michaels is nursing a legit knee injury and can’t compete. To get him out of the match, The Rockers are distracted by Slick, Herc and Roma sneak up from behind and Hercules drives his chain right into Michaels’ knee – he’ll be on the floor for the duration of this match.
I’m assuming you’re watching this on the WWE Network (and why wouldn’t you? It’s only $9.99 if you haven’t heard!) Here’s a funny little side note – did the choice of camera angle and Vince’s voice for this spot seem a little off? Well it was. I had a VHS recorded copy of the live event and the director of the show completely missed the chain shot. So those watching at home had absolutely no idea why Michaels seemed to be having a seizure on the floor. So they had to replace the video and audio to show what happened. I just thought that was interesting.
The match ends up being a glorified (pun intended) handicap match with Jannetty giving it a good run. Power & Glory win using what I think is a phenomenal finisher, especially for its time. Hercules hits a suplex from the top rope on Jannetty and in perfect sync Roma follows with a splash from the opposite corner. Looked great!
Mr. Perfect (c) w/Bobby Heenan
“The Texas Tornado” Kerry Von Erich
This match was originally scheduled to be a WrestleMania rematch with Perfect defending his title against Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake. Unfortunately Beefcake suffered a horrific injury from a boating accident and had to be taken out of the match. So Von Erich debuts in the WWF weeks before SummerSlam and says “Hey, I’ll fill in!”
Both men had solid backstage interviews with Mean Gene prior to the match – which helped because the match itself was not that long. Perfect and Von Erich made the most of the time they were given but I would have liked to have seen a longer match.
Von Erich, who again has only been in the company for a couple cups of coffee, beats Perfect and wins the Intercontinental Championship. Crazy part of all this – something I learned watching The Triumph and Tragedy of WCCW – thanks to a motorcycle accident, Von Erich did this with half a foot! Still looked pretty good!
We go to the back where Mean Gene is ready to interview one of the competitors in the next match, Sweet Sapphire … … … OR IS HE???? Sapphire doesn’t show up for the interview! Instead, Perfect and Heenan storm in and give another promo of gold. But wait, what happened to Sapphire? Well, her match was next. Maybe she just already went to the ring…
Sensational Queen Sherri
… NOPE! Sherri is in the ring – all decked out in a silver and black dress/mask/face paint get up that looks like she just got out of The Black Hole at a Raiders game! “American Dream” hits the speakers and we are all anxiously awaiting the arrival of Sapphire…but we get nothing. Try playing the music again…nothing. Howard Finkel is told that Sapphire has a 10 count to get to the ring or she forfeits the match. After a very loud countdown from Sherri that hits 0, Sherri is awarded the match by forfeit.
McMahon and Piper had been mentioning gifts that Sapphire had been receiving over the last few weeks – could that have something to do with her disappearance? Hhmmm …
Mean Gene is now with Dusty Rhodes who has no idea where Sapphire, the woman that has been by his side for nearly a year, has gone. Love Hacksaw Jim Duggan randomly walking into the shot to let Dusty know that he doesn’t know where Sapphire is. Rhodes then goes offer a list of the items Sapphire has received such has a Cadillac, a diamond bracelet, fur coat, cruise around the world, etc. Okerlund references the fact that she was told she would receive the biggest gift of all at SummerSlam. It sounds like all these gifts cost a lot of money … … … hhmmm …
The Warlord w/Slick
Santana finishes his run through the Powers of Pain here after losing to The Barbarian at WrestleMania 6 months before. It was a little sad for me to see a Hall of Famer like Tito Santana used in a glorified jobber role for most of this year. The best part of this match is Piper’s random Mexican food jokes. The Warlord wins a squash match – and then we move on.
TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP – 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS
Demolition (c) (Smash and Crush … and then Ax)
The Hart Foundation (Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart)
Ax and Smash had recently added a third member of Demolition, Crush. To keep things fair, they were told that only two members were allowed to be at ringside for the match. Since their the bad guys, I’m sure the two that come down for the match, Smash and Crush, will be the only two members that we see tonight.
I consider this match to be one of the most underrated in SummerSlam history. The ring psychology and crowd reaction was amazing. Demolition takes the first fall after hitting their finisher. Wrestling 101 – in a 2 out of 3 falls match, whoever wins the first fall is doomed to lose the second!
What do you know! The Harts win the second fall to tie things up! Shocking!
During the confusion between the second and third fall, the third member of Demolition, Ax, runs down while the refs back is turned and hides under the ring. It only takes minutes for Ax to switch places with Smash to give Demolition the unfair advantage. Vince is playing this off as Ax and Smash look nearly identical so the ref can’t tell them apart. OK, stop! When Ax and Smash debuted in 1987, yes they looked eerily similar – especially with the face paint. That lasted a couple months. After that, they still tried of several occasions to pull of the two looking alike. One was tan and one wasn’t – one had long hair one didn’t – COMPLETELY different face pain patterns now. Really made the refs seem dumb!
Anyway, back to the match! To help clear things up, here comes the Legion of Doom. Animal pulls the extra member of Demolition out from under the ring and Hawk knocks Crush off the top rope. The confusion gives Neidhart to hit a big shoulder block on Crush, Bret rolls him up and The Hart Foundation are your new tag team champions!
That takes us to the intermission portion of the show – which consists of backstage interviews and a five minute period of literally nothing but looking at a clock counting down from five minutes (though that gem was edited out for the Network).
Quick rundown of the interviews –
Legion of Doom and The Hart Foundation – A very large amount of screaming, and what Bret Hart would probably consider his screaming.
Demolition – Well, Sean Mooney standing outside of Demolition’s locker room so we can hear mumbled yelling in the background.
Sensational Queen Sherri – Talks about the “rumors” she heard about Sapphire’s gifts. Fantastic line –
Mean Gene “Sensation Sherri, I don’t see anything funny about a missing person!”
Sherri “I said she was missing! I didn’t say anything about her being a person!”
And we’re back from intermission!
Bad News Brown
Jake “The Snake” Roberts
Special Referee – Big Boss Man
The premise of this match is that Bad News is bringing “200 pounds of sewer rats” that he wants to feed Roberts’ snake, Damian, to. Jake brings his trust bag-o-snake with him and Bad News has a mysterious covered black box that we are told are the rats…though we never see them.
The match is pretty so-so. Best part of it is Jake giving Bad News the old, um, Fireman’s Salute. Roddy Piper chimes in with “Jake says ‘I don’t give up!’ … That’s how you say that in wrestling.” As a kid, I kind of thought that was true – though I luckily never told a teacher of family member that I don’t give up.
Bad News hits Roberts with a chair twice and gets the DQ. He then tries to go after the Big Boss Man for disqualifying him but Jake saves the day by opening the bad and rolling out Damian.
…and we move on.
The Brother Love Show w/Sgt. Slaughter
There is not a man my age that didn’t hate Brother Love and the Brother Love Show as a kid but feel all sorts of nostalgic watching an edition now! This was the first major appearance for Slaughter after turning his back on his country-though he wasn’t as pro-Iraq as he would be down the road just yet. I didn’t really have a problem with Sgt. Slaughter as the Iraqi sympathizer (you can check out review of the 1990 Survivor Series for a more detailed reason as to why - http://www.drinkfive.com/fantasy-football-nfl/item/148-looking-back-at-the-1990-survivor-series )
An interview with The Orient Express is interrupted as Mean Gene spots Sapphire! We go to Mean Gene who gets the door slammed in his face. Apparently Sapphire doesn’t want to talk right now. At least she is safe so that’s a good thing…right?
The Orient Express (Sato and Tanaka) w/Mr. Fuji
“Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and Nikolai Volkoff
To start things off here, we are treated to Duggan and Volkoff singing “God Bless America” together … I’ll just let you take a second to let that sink in.
The match…well…it happened. That’s about the most I can say. Oh, Duggan and Volkoff won.
In the back, Dusty Rhodes is at the door that Sapphire had slammed shut to let her know Rhodes’ match is next and they need to go…to no avail.
“Macho King” Randy Savage
Dusty is far from the jubilant “American Dream” that we normally see coming to the ring. Polka dots never looked so serious.
I understand the allure of having the “first ever” mixed tag match, but I really wish THIS would have been the match we got at this year’s WrestleMania. Two legends going one-on-one is what WrestleMania is all about.
The match starts and...wait…I hear the sound of the most recognizable laugh in wrestling history – “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase. DiBiase comes out to remind Dusty Rhodes that “everybody has a price” by revealing that HE is the one who bought Sapphire away from Rhodes! Sapphire comes out in her new fur coat, diamond necklace, diamond ring and a bag full of money. A little different from the polka dotted sweater we had been accustomed to seeing her in.
Dusty goes after DiBiase but Savage hits him from behind and brings him back to the ring to officially start the match. Like Perfect and Von Erich, this was a good match between Hall of Famers that should have gone longer. Savage hits Rhodes with a loaded purse handed to him by Sherri and picks up the win.
Backstage we see DiBiase, his bodyguard Virgil and Sapphire getting into a limo. Dusty catches up to them but is just too late as the limo takes off. Rhodes tries to chase it down but can’t because…well…it’s an automobile, and we are left with a sad image of Rhodes just standing in disbelief in the garage.
Earthquake w/Jimmy Hart and Dino Bravo
Hulk Hogan w/Big Boss Man
That takes us straight to our double main event as the tremors start and Earthquake makes his way to the ring. Hogan follows and gets the typical Hulkamania reaction from the crowd. He may not get the same type of reaction these days…at least not from a demographic or two.
A really underrated match – Earthquake was a great big man performer. He really held his own in what was his first main event level program. During the match, Earthquake has Hogan in a bear hug. Instead of giving up, Hogan decides to rip a section of the ref’s shirt off. So…that happened.
After “Hulking” out of Earthquake’s finisher, the two take the fight outside where Hogan slams the 400 pounder on the table left from Bad News Brown’s sewer rat cage (which was apparently the only reason the cage was out there). Hogan comes back in and wins by count-out. I think its funny that Hogan looks happier from that count-out win than he did winning the title a couple times.
As the crew sets up the cage for the final match, we get a few more backstage interviews in including one with a distraught Dusty Rhodes. He’s not sad though, he’s mad. He hints that the fun-loving, polka dot wearing man that was introduced to the WWF the previous year is gone and he’s going to get bad again. Will the Dusty Rhodes that won the NWA Heavyweight Title on multiple occasions how up in the WWF? Well, kind of. The polka dots were gone but Rhodes didn’t stick around long enough before heading back to WCW in early 1991.
WWF Championship – Steel Cage Match
The Ultimate Warrior (c)
“Ravishing” Rick Rude w/Bobby Heenan
I miss the old blue bar cage!
During his backstage interview, The Ultimate Warrior gave us this gem… “Do you know what Rick Rude and Bobby Heenan have in common with the Liberty Bell? … One is cracked and one is a ding-dong!”
…(pause for awkward silence)
Both men enter the cage…and I tell you, this cage is so high! If I had to guess I would say it is a ten, maybe even twelve foot high steel cage. If ONLY I had someone to tell just how tall this particular stell cage is!
The Warrior has never been described as being one of the best in-ring technicians in history. However Rick Rude always seemed always seemed to get the best out of him and this match was no different. The two used the cage very well creating scenarios that made it seem like either man could win the match.
In the end The Warrior climbed over the top of the cage, did a little Rick Rude hip shimmy for good measure and landed on the floor to keep the WWF Championship.
All in all it is a very solid show. I consider it to be one of the best top to bottom shows the WWF had in that era. Definitely one to get you in the proper SummerSlam mood.
