Hawk Talk: Sixers, Eagles, Kobe, Holy War

Loading ...

While the Warriors remain undefeated, the Sixers have still yet to win a game! To make matters worse, Jahlil Okafor might need a babysitter. Are the Eagles the worse team in football? Chip Kelly can cross USC off his list of potential jobs next season. The Panthers, on the other hand, may have a legitimate shot at an undefeated regular season. Finally, Kobe Bryant announced he will retiring following this season and Saint Joseph's takes on Villanova tomorrow night in the Holy War!

A Practical Plan for the Yankees Offseason

Sean Maliga

During the offseason, there isn’t a name the Yankees aren’t linked to in some way. No matter how many times the Yankees say “We’re cutting back spending,” no one believes them because…well…they’re the Yankees. Names like David Price, Zack Greinke, Aroldis Chapman, and even Robinson Cano have been thrown around here and there, but all are highly unlikely. With that said, that doesn’t mean the Yankees won’t spend any money. So, I’ve devised a realistic plan for the New York Yankees based on their areas of need (that I hope Brian Cashman has come up with this as well).

Hawk Talk: NFC East, Qualifying Offers, Craig Kimbrel

The Giants lost to the Patriots in controversial fashion, but may have shown that they are true contenders. The Eagles dropped an embarrassing one to the Dolphins. Romo is set to return for the Cowboys this weekend. Nick and Matt analyze what this means for each team and break down the competitive state of the NFC East.

Prior to this season, no MLB player had ever accepted a qualifying offer. In the past week, three players did. Is this a budding trend or just an anomaly of this offseason?

The Red Sox trade for Craig Kimbrel in the most recent of the young offseason's big moves. What did they give up and will it be worth it?

Bonds and Clemens Are Not Hall of Famers

Nick Mandarano

Keep in mind that Cooperstown is home to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and crew are more than welcome in the National Baseball Museum. In fact, I think it’d be a disgrace to keep them out. They are all an integral part of the game’s history. Barry Bonds is baseball’s all-time home run king. Roger Clemens is a 7-time Cy Young Award winner. The two were the face of baseball for an entire era. Of course we must include them.

But the Museum and the Hall of Fame are two separate entities. Not enough people understand that. A story of baseball’s history without the inclusion of these two superstars is unquestionably an incomplete story. But why should we grant these men the sport’s most hallowed honor if they spent their entire career cheating and disrespecting the game? A true lover of baseball should feel personally offended that these men are belittling the importance and integrity of baseball by cheating to shatter sacred records.

The BBWAA lays out six characteristics in which a player must excel in order to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. “Voting shall be based upon
