Rob Long: Time To Pass The Baton

“Brady and company were absolutely surgical during their comeback against the Falcons. Tom Brady “quietly” passed for 466 yards and gracefully recovered from Robert Alford’s the pick 6 in the second quarter.”

Rob Long: Ray Lewis Didn’t Apologize

Ray Lewis later issued what he called an apology. I don’t call what Lewis posted on social media an apology. I call it yet another dig. It was like saying, “I’m sorry that you’re offended.”

Rob Long: Candidates For Best MLB Players In The Region And Why

The series between the Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles seems more like a celebration of baseball than an actual rivalry with the way the teams have really taken on winning traditions since the start of the 2012 seasons. Here are some candidates of the best players in the region and why:

Rob Long: The Brawl Between Ventura & Machado

Manny Machado made it perfectly clear in the second inning that he did not like Yordano Ventura throwing inside. Not only did he stare him down, he chirped at Ventura after hitting a fly ball to left field. Machado obviously had issues with Yordano’s approach.

Rob Long: Is Machado Happier At Shortstop Or Third Base?

Maybe the 23-year-old Miami native has visions of one day being the game’s best shortstop, but for now, why can’t we believe that he’s committed to what he does?


DETROIT, MI - OCTOBER 05: J.J. Hardy #2 of the Baltimore Orioles hits a single in the second inning against the Detroit Tigers during Game Three of the American League Division Series at Comerica Park on October 5, 2014 in Detroit, Michigan.
