1. Will Kris Middleton Play? The Bucks won a lopsided game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night without All-Star forward Kris Middleton. Middleton missed the game due to a sore neck. The All-Star forward is averaging 21.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game this season. He is also on pace to join the exclusive 50-40-90 club. Middleton is only averaging 14.5 points against the Hornets this season. Given the Hornets poor record, don’t be surprised if he is given another game off to continue the healing process. 2. The Hornets Look to Knock Off Another Elite…

As a small market team, the Brewers are not able to always sign the big-name free agents. This makes it even more important for their signings to work out. Even a bad short-term contract can derail the building plans of teams like the Brewers. The Brewers made a World Series appearance in 1982 and did not reach the post season again for 26 years. Bad free agent signings are a huge reason for that drought. Here, we analyze the worst free agent signings in Brewers history. #10 Worst Signing: Jim Abbott As much of a feel-good story that the one-handed…

Some of the items up for discussion created excitement among fans when they were first leaked. Among these items is a 17th game in the regular season. In addition, a third wild card team would be added to each league. This would mean only the top seed in each conference would get a first-round bye in the playoffs. Many NFL players, however, do not view the new agreement as a positive thing. While not all details have been made public,…

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Freddy Peralta signed a five-year, $15.5 million contract extension on Wednesday. The contract includes two club options that may raise the value of the contract to $30 million. It has been an up-and-down career for Peralta, but has shown flashes of brilliance at times. In 2018, he made a great first impression in his Major League debut against the Colorado Rockies. He pitched 5.2 innings with 13 strikeouts, 2 walks, and only surrendered 1 hit. Peralta would be inconsistent for the remainder of the season, even being relegated to the bullpen. He did make the post-season roster…

The Packers struggled for years to find a consistent running game to compliment future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers. They seem to have found their answer in Aaron Jones. Jones ended his third season in the NFL leading the league in rushing touchdowns (16) and ran for 1,000+ yards for the first time in his career. Given the inconsistent nature of Green Bay’s running game in the past, many fans are still weary of Jones and the run game. Here we analyze three reasons why Aaron Jones is just getting started. #1- Work Load Aaron Jones played college ball…

On Christmas Day this season, the 76ers looked like the main team in the East that would give the Bucks trouble. However, Milwaukee had a convincing win over Philadelphia earlier this month. The Bucks defeated the 76ers handily tonight, proving the game two weeks ago was no fluke. They used a 37-point third quarter to pull away from Philly, handing the 76ers their 20th road loss of the season. The Bucks were led early and often by Giannis Antetokounmpo, who finished with 31 points, 17 rebounds, and 8 assists in just 29 minutes of play. Giannis did his damage on…
