A Requiem for Cory Gearrin

November 13, 2014 Brent Blackwell 0

Earlier this week the Braves parted ways with reliever Cory Gearrin, dropping the occupied portion of the 40 man roster to 36. Gearrin was an effective closer at Mercer University here in Georgia, and was a fairly high draft pick, going 138th overall (4th round) in the 2007 draft. He signed quickly and played rookie…

On Monday the Braves signed free agent OF Zoilo Almonte to a one year major league deal. Here's what you need to know. The Terms The terms are still mostly unknown aside from the length - 1 year. You have to imagine the money is on the low end, so I doubt the details matter…

Every Monday I compile my college football rankings based on team resume. As usual, I'll point out this isn't an estimation of which teams would beat each other, but rather which teams have accomplished the most this year. The 4 1.

ICYMI: The Braves recent activity….

November 9, 2014 Chris Jervis 0

With the wind down of the 2014 MLB season, and the increase in NCAAF games that matter, I have been a little slack in staying on top of the Atlanta Braves recent activity, especially in regards to off-season moves.  So, if you missed it, here is a recap of their recent moves.   October 25,…

College Football Rankings, 11/3/14

November 3, 2014 Brent Blackwell 0

By this point you really should know the drill. Every Monday I compile my college football rankings based on resume, ignoring the eye test altogether. Is there value to the eye test? Yes, very much so. I just don't think the playoffs should come down to that, because if you honestly want the 4 best teams…

Tomorrow, the College Football Playoff Selection Committee will release its initial top 25 rankings.  It will likely look very similar to the AP top 25.  If it doesn't, then the Committee will have earned something - originality, and with it, some degree of credibility. I don't claim more credibility than any other who compiles rankings,…

As is becoming my Monday ritual, here's my ranking of all 128 FBS teams. As usual, I'll note that this is a ranking of what they've accomplished so far, without any regard for who would beat who or how I subjectively value team strength. 1. Ole Miss Rebels (7-0) - MSU was my previous #1,…

How the Kentucky/Tennessee game could decide the SEC West

October 19, 2014 Brent Blackwell 3

Update: Good news and bad news. The good news is that the SEC has abandoned the old 'eliminate #3 and then go Head-to-head' method of deciding a 3-way tie. It was a silly method. The bad news is that it renders this completely awesome Kentucky/Tennessee scenario obsolete. The 3-way tie would go to Alabama or…
