Avs On The Road To The Cup

Posted by fod65 on March 17th, 2014

In the lockout shortened 2013 season, the Colorado Avalanche finished last in the Northwest Divison and 15th out of 15 western Conference teams with only 39 points in 48 games. However, under 1st year head coach Patrick Roy the Avalanche surprised everyone by starting the 2013-2014 season on fire winning 14 of their first 16 games. Possibly even more surprising is that with only 14 games remaining in the season the Avs are currently in second in the Central Division and fifth in the NHL with 93 points. Riding the scoring of Matt Duchene and captain Gabriel Landeskog as well as the strong goaltending of Semyon Varlamov the Avs are poised for a deep run in the 2013-2014 NHL playoffs.

Best Team

Posted by Decker on August 27th, 2012

The Nuggets are the best team in Colorado. They will be a playoff team again next year, but one has to wonder how far they can really go.

A Job Well Done

Posted by Decker on April 7th, 2011

Since trading Carmelo Anthony, the Nuggets have flourished. The new faces are meshing well with the familiar faces, and they are exceeding everyone’s expectations. It was smart trading Anthony to begin with, as he was not going back. But since then, everyone seems to have found their role. Danilo Gallinari continues to show signs of becoming an all-star. Ty Lawson is maturing at a very fast rate. Wilson Chandler is picking up right where he left off from New York. And Nene is showing why he is in the upper tier of centers in the league.

The only knock against Denver was keeping Raymond Felton. His trade value was the highest it will ever be, and Denver has Ty Lawson for the future. He should have been traded, and if he is traded next year, his value will likely not be as high. He makes for a solid sixth man, but cannot really play effectively at shooting guard. But all in all, Denver should be proud of itself now, and going forward.

Unexpected Release from Broncos

Posted by GameSetMatch on August 24th, 2010

Today the Denver Broncos have released linebacker Akin Ayodele. In what is being seen as a shocker from the linebacker himself. Ayodele has been the starting linebacker in the Broncos first two pre-season games. In the first two pre-season games he made eight tackles in the Broncos’ two preseason games this season, including six against the Lions on Saturday. Ayodele is one of three starting linebackers in the NFL who has played in every game since 2002. He played for Miami (2008-2009), Dallas (2006-07) and Jacksonville (2002-05) after being drafted by the Jaguars out of Purdue. He was told by the Broncos that he was released this earlier so he has a chance to sign with another team but they did not give him a direct answer to why he was released. Now the Broncos back-up linebackers will have a chance to prove themselves for that open spot.

Needing To Keep Carmelo

Posted by Decker on June 28th, 2010

Despite the collective bargaining agreement expiring soon, it is in Denver’s best interest to re-sign Carmelo Anthony. They always seem to put together a team that can get into the playoffs, but they do not go far. With Nene not getting any better, and Billups getting older, the Nuggets are not even going in the right direction. But to have a superstar locked up long-term would be beneficial to a team that cannot afford to go back to its miserable losing days.

Ubaldo Jiminez makes #1 Suprise Starting Pitchers of 2010

Posted by homerunheyer on June 2nd, 2010

There have been many suprisingly good starts by pitchers in 2010 that haven’t had good seasons the past few years. Is it a fluke, or are these pitchers for real this season?

1. Ubaldo Jiminez: Jiminez has been by far the biggest suprise starting pitcher of 2010. With a record of 10-1 and a 0.78 ERA Jiminez has been the best pitcher in all of baseball so far this season. I think this guy is for real, he has always had a ton of strikeouts and a career ERA of 3.39. Jiminez’s win percentage has remained around .500 mostly because his team did not score a lot of runs for him in the past. I know it’s early in the season but if Jiminez doesn’t win the Cy Young Award it would be shocking. If the Rockies trade for another strong starter to help Jiminez out their team can be dangerous. The Rockies should build around Jiminez, if they don’t he may want out after the season is over.

How can the Jazz improve?

Posted by nathaneagan12 on June 1st, 2010

This off-season the Jazz, like many other good (but not great) NBA teams face a dilemma. How can they improve when they don’t have the salary cap room to sign an impact player? The Jazz have most of their salary cap room tied up in Deron Williams, the NBA’s top point guard, and an assortment of role players such as Andrei Kirilenko, Paul Millsap and Mehmet Okur. All three of those players are good, but are they the kind of players who can lead a team to an NBA title? Most observers of the NBA would say no. With the likely departure of Carlos Boozer, the Jazz are in a position where they are forced to insert Millsap, previously a bench player, into the starting lineup.

To make matters worse, the Jazz entered this season holding the New York Knicks’ first round draft pick which was projected to be a top-3 pick. Unfortunately, however, the Knicks slightly out-performed their expectations and the Jazz are left holding the 9th pick in the draft. The pick, while useful, will probably not propel the Jazz to the top of the western conference. With that in mind, how can the Jazz elevate their talent level to be able to compete with the Lakers?

In all honesty, the only real way for the Jazz to improve would come from either a lucky draft pick or from a trade. While the Jazz are set at point guard for the foreseeable future, they need to add a scoring threat at shooting guard, along with a shot-blocking presence on defense. Unfotunately, these players do not come cheaply, and it will take either good luck or a skillful trade in order to acquire a player who can raise the Jazz from the level of a perennial 4th or 5th seed, to the kind of team that can consistently challenge the NBA’s elite.

Ubaldo holds all aces

Posted by GameSetMatch on June 1st, 2010

Maybe a couple of years ago, Ubaldo Jimenez’s emotions would have gotten the best of him. But not now. Not after his evolution into the most dominant pitcher in baseball.

“I went to bed at 10 last night and slept great,” Jimenez said. “I was anticipating this game, but I was like, ‘Don’t get too high. Just go out there and try to execute your pitches. Throw your fastball for strikes.’ And that’s what I did.”

It sounds so simple, and for Jimenez, it is. His start Monday versus the San Francisco Giants may have been more hyped than his previous 10, but his MO, his demeanor and the results were largely the same as the others.
