Posted on September 24, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Monday afternoon, everything the San Francisco 49ers feared (and in their heart of hearts, already knew) was confirmed. After undergoing an MRI, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was diagnosed with a torn ACL he suffered during Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. Garoppolo will miss the rest of the season, […]

Posted on September 24, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The New York Yankees have officially clinched a spot in the American League Wild Card Game, but whether they’ll have shortstop Didi Gregorius in that game is in doubt.

Posted on September 21, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine For weeks, it’s been a foregone conclusion that the Boston Red Sox would win the AL East. But it’s always nice when it becomes official, which is exactly what the Red Sox did Thursday night in the Bronx. In a wild, back-and-forth game, the Red Sox beat […]
