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.

Peralta would be inconsistent for the remainder of the season, even being relegated to the bullpen. He did make the post-season roster…

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…

During the All-Star break, Giannis made comments about how “awesome” it would be to team up with his brothers on an NBA team. Many fans have taken this statement as an indication that Giannis will leave Milwaukee when his current contract expires after next season. However, in another recent interview, Giannis reiterated his desire of winning a championship with the Bucks. In Giannis’s first season, the Bucks went 15-67.

Milwaukee is a small market when it comes to professional sports franchises. As such, it is hard to sign superstar players who can typically receive far more lucrative contracts in larger markets. When the Bucks draft a player who attains superstar status like Giannis Antetokounmpo, one of the biggest concerns for fans is if or when that player will leave. Over the past few seasons, the question as to what he will decided to do when he becomes a free agent has been debated all across the NBA community.

The Green Bay Packers have a rich history of great wide receivers. One of the most fun debates is which one of them is the best. It is no shock that for this list, the top five selected are also the top five receivers in terms in receiving yards in Packers history. Greatness, however, is determined by more than just receiving yards.

Don Hutson- Left End/Defensive Back;…
