Spring training is upon us, but more importantly, college baseball has begun. While it is easy to keep up with the top high school prospects and Division I talents ready for June’s MLB Draft, there are often a few under the radar guys lurking in DII and DIII baseball just itching to make an impact.
Dear Yankees fans,
I have a bone to pick. There is something that has entered our lexicon over the past few seasons, and to be honest, I have grown quite weary of it. It may alienate me some, and come with some backlash, but that’s the risk I need to take.
The five newest inductees of the Atlanta Sports Hall of Fame were honored at the Buckhead Theatre Friday evening. While all of those enshrined last night were deserving, my friends and I were on hand to watch the late Craig Sager get inducted.
I know nothing about fantasy basketball. I’ve been playing a lot of quarter and dollar multipliers while I figure it out. Some nights I turn my quarter into $15 finishing in the top five of thousands. Other nights, I feel like I pick the perfect lineup and finish 22,306 out of 25,000.
Like I said, I’m figuring it out.
That being said, I’ll share a few things here daily while I do.
While it appeared that the New York Yankees offseason was done, they made one last move before spring training started.

Despite some backlash on the ol’ intra web, it’s an absolutely brilliant move, with not a thing to lose.
I really don’t need to say anything. If you like Bartolo Colon
— and who doesn’t — this is a must watch (and thank you MLB.com for this brilliant idea. And you know what? Thank you Bartolo, for being you).
WELCOME TO BARTLANTA

I need to apologize, dear Wayniacs. No need for excuses. I have been busy and have neglected you. I wasn’t even able to throw together a Super Bowl reaction piece, and for that I am sorry.
As always, I am still writing, just elsewhere across the world wide web. Curious as to what I’ve been writing? Take a peek.
It’s finally here. Super Bowl 51. I don’t know what’s more impressive. The Thread has stuck with me contributing articles and to this Annual Wayniac Nation Super Bowl Prediction Special! — my favorite piece of the year — or that their beloved Atlanta Falcons are finally back in the big game.
Look, we all know where The Thread allegiances stand by now. But that doesn’t mean it’s as easy a pick as you think.
As always, I’ll let them do the talking.
Yesterday was Ernie Banks birthday. Mr. Cub would have been 86 years old. It got me thinking. Banks of course played one of the toughest careers in the game, playing 19 years with the Chicago Cubs and never once seeing the post season.
So which other superstars ended historic careers without winning a World Series?
Two teams left. One is a Super Bowl stalwart, making their seventh trip to the big game this millennium. The other? Not many expected the Atlanta Falcons to be there. But they are, making their first trip since the 1998 season.
So how does the Top 12 look this week?
