INDIANS 4 BLUE JAYS 2 F...@EnCadWin extends his Hitting Streak to 26 Games but the TRIBE beats DAVID PRICE in the Rogers Centre as DANNY SALAZAR moves to a cool 12-7 !..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" as the BLUE BIRDS are denied win #22 in the month of August! #CLEvsTOR #Tribe #JaysNation #JuniorCircuit2K15

Yes Toronto Blue Jays first baseman and DH Edwin Encarnacion dba in the Twittisphere as @EnCadWin goes 2 for 4 extending his hit streak to 26 games. The Blue Birds though did not get the "W" as visiting Cleveland Indians beats the Jays and David Price 4-2 in the Rogers Centre!

The Tribe struck first in Frame One scoring on a fielder's choice making it 1-0 Indians. That lead held up through four as the 'Jays got things rolling on Tribe starter Danny Salazar in the bottom half of the 5th scoring a crooked two. Those two Ducks coming in off the pond was compliments of a Josh Donaldson three-bagger as he gets closer an closer to being the lead for AL M.V.P.!

Price then in the 7th gave up an RBI double and single as his 2-1 lead quickly turned to a 3-2 deficit.  Price went seven but took the L"L falling to 13-5. Salazar (W, 12-7) went seven and was on the hook for the "W" as the 'Jays had two on and two outs with Donaldson at the dish and he struck out swinging...ball game Tribe!

Tribe Captain Save-A-Game Cody Allen was filthy in the 9th grabbing his 28th save. Lonnie Chisenhall gave the Tribe some much-needed insurance in the 9th with an RBI single pushing the score to the final score of 4-2.

Edwin Encarnacion goes 2 for 4 extending his hitting streak to 26 games and the 'Jays Quest to get to 22 wins in the month of August was shut down. The Carmines beat the Yanks helping the Blue Birds as Toronto still leads the AL East by 1.5 games.    

GIANTS @ DODGERS in "A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" from Chavez Ravine in an NL WEST Clash of the Titans!...GIGANTES 3.5 games back of the DODGERS has seven head to head remaining with L.A. as the DODGERS have stunk up the joint vs SAN FRAN in 2K15! #SFvsLAD #OrangeAugust #DodgerNation #NLWestElite2K15

The 2K15 San Francisco Giants has two things going for them in their Three-Piece with the NL West leading L.A. Dodgers starting the week. They have owned the Dodgers this season and they have the "Equalizer" in the "Mad Bum" Madison Bumgarner.

L.A. on the other hand has a few things going for them in they have a 3.5 game lead, the Three-Piece at Chavez Ravine, and both Zack Greinke and Clayton Kerhsaw is going for them in this series. Something has to give as we have the Senior Circuit 2K15 Playoff Picture unfolding right before our eyes.

Its starts with good stating pitching and defense and we have that in this series. three of the premier

Then at the dish both teams have struggled of late but it has more to who they saw on the "Hill" in Jake Arrieta who no-hit LAD yesterday and Lance Lynn of the Redbirds who blanked the Gigantes on Saturday. The Dodgers have multiple pieces in the Outfield and the Giants have plenty starting with Buster Posey and they need Hunter Pence back in the worst way!

QB TAYLOR will start for BILLS Mafia!..."SUNDAY TALK" as former Beamer Ball Blacksburg Star QB TYROD TAYLOR beats out CASSEL and MANUEL to start Week 1 for Bison City Football! @TyrodTaylor @Bills #BillsMafia #BeamerBallBlacksburg

It was just a matter of time and new Bills Mafia lead man Rex Ryan and Company went with their gut and their "Guts" told them 2K15 Free Agent QB pick up Tyrod Taylor formerly of the Purple Browns of Baltimore wins the Starting QB Gig over both Mat Cassel and E.J. Manuel.

It's the new age in QB as Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has proven a QB who can throw the Wilson pigskin and has unique escapability can win and win big in the "Shield" Now that might be Fool's Gold as Taylor will have RB LeSean "Shady" McCoy but not "Beast Mode" in Marshawn Lynch as "Shady" poses his own problems coming out of the backfield.

Taylor possesses the sane skill set as the QB he replaced in Va Tech in Mike Vick and he is a little bit bigger. That Bills O-Line led by Center Eric Wood is solid and Taylor has some weapons on the outside. Both WRs Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods are a nice duo along with "Speedster" and U.S Olympian Marquise Goodwin. 2015 Free Agent pick up TE CHarles Clay will be Taylor's #1 target before its said and done in me on that Clay is a nightmare coverage for both Backers and DBs!

Now we will see if the Bills gamble will pay off and the Bluedude looking at it from a far would have went with Tyrod Taylor also as I think Manuel been done and Cassel is a Clipboard Holder walking...what else is he?

#BeamerBall Blacksburg VA Highlights 


Place Kicker SCOBEE traded to STEELERS!..."TRIPLE DIAMOND Chronicles" as we are talking about the "KICKER" and the BLACK & YELLOW signs its 3rd in JAGS Royalty JOSH SCOBEE! @JoshScobee10 @Steelers #SteelerNation #TripleDiamondChronicles #SteelerGang #TheKicker

The Pittsburgh Steelers have not had any luck with the Place Kickers in 2K15 as Shaun Suisham went down in the NFL HOF Game in Canton, Ohio versus the Vikings with a Torn ACL. They replaced Suisham with Garrett Hartley (Hamstring) who went down after a Kickoff this past Saturday in the Bison City versus the Buffalo Bills.

Now the Steelers in desperate need of a good Veteran Kicker gets a blessing. KHAN-struction Jaguars Place Kicker for the last 11 season Josh Scobee was traded today to the Steelers which is a win win for both. The Jaguars are moving on with Rookie PK Jason Meyers who is unproven bit has to be cost effective.

The Steelers get a PK in Scobee who holds all the Jags Records and is more than proven as Heinz Field can be a tricky and sticky situation with the open end and the elements as we head to the cold months. Now moving forward the Black and Yellow hopes this will be all the new concerning who will be the PK for the 2K15 season.

Checkout Scobee's Bio under his Twitter Handle @JoshScobee10..."will kick balls for money" slow your roll there partner...but its true! 

Raiders RT MENELIK WATSON ruptures ACHILLES' tendon!...SILVER & BLACK O-Line Depth Chart 2K15!...Raiders Backer/DE KHALIL MACK is all of that scattered, smothered, and covered and 2K14 VIDEO Highlights! "SUNDAY TALK" as the RAIDERS Health for "FAKE Games" 2K15 was A+ until Week 3 vs the #BirdGang! @MenelikWatson @52Mack_ @Raiders #RaiderNation #SilverAndBlack #CommitmentToExcellence

The Oakland Raiders up 15-3 at the break on the Arizona Cardinals somehow finds a way to lose this one 30-23. The positives was that Raiders 1st Team "D" minus players like Safety Charles Woodson and DT Justin Tuck playing their tails off in that 1st half. We know this Raiders new lead man Jack Del Rio knows a little bit about Backers and "D" and he has unleashed 2nd-year Stud DE/OLB and 2K15 Red Jersey Collector Khalil Mack as Mack had two Red Jersey Collections on the night before break.  

The negative was the Silver and Black giving up 27 second half points as QB Derek Carr even had a Pick 6 in that mess. The Raiders though looking better and better but as the Injury Big finally hits camp in one of the worst places.

Starting Right Tackle and 2K14 Raiders 2nd Round Pick Menelik Watson goes down and though reports its a Ruptured Achilles' tendon which means season-ending Injured-Reserve for the big fella. Now we move the depth chart around and the Raiders might be looking for a Right Tackle as we hit the end of the "Fake Games" 2K15. Let's take a look at the Raiders O-Line Depth Chart and Khalil Mack in 2014 Video...

360 Degrees...moving forward the key cog in any O-Line is the Center position as he makes all the O-Line Calls. As long as former Florida State Star Center Rodney Hudson is healthy and under center the Silver and Black O-Line should be alright. Losing Watson is huge though as NFL Vet and former #ItsABucsLife LT Donald Penn starts his 2nd campaign at LT with Oakland!

As far as Khalil Mack is concerned he is a nasty cat and I expect him to be among the Top 5 Red Jersey Collectors in 2K15 as Jack Del Rio has moved him to the edge to wreak havoc on QBs....the Video of Mr. Mack from 2K14 his Rookie Campaign!

CUBS 2 DODGERS 0 F...ARRIETA answered the CALL as the slumping "NORTH SIDERS" get a No-Hitter from JAKE ARRIETA!..."GET AWAY DAY" as ARRIETA no-hits the NORTH SIDERS! #CHCvsLAD #NorthSiders #DodgerNation #SeniorCircuitHappenings2K15 #JakeArrietaThrowsANoHitter

The Chicago Cubs and starter Jake Arrieta was on solid footing from the frame one as Rookie Star Hot Corner Kris Bryant took L.A. Dodgers starter Alex Wood deep for a 2-0 Cubs lead. Little did we know it would Cubbbies Ace Arrieta going complete job and not giving up a hit.

Arrieta's Line vs the Dodgers for his No-Hitter: 

9 IP 0 H 0 R BB 12 SO 

More impressive for Arrieta as that Local was biting and his Slide Piece was moving out this world was he struck out the side 1-2-3 in the 9th. Wood takes the loss as he went six giving up just two runs on the Bryant Bomb and eight hits.

"Maddon Ball" needed this as they were on a four-game skid avoiding the sweep from the Gigantes and Dodgers. The Redbirds helped both by beating the Gigantes again winning that series 2-1.

Arrieta moves to 17-6 and he was already in the conversation for the NL Cy Young not that "Plot" thickens in his starts through September... 

TEXANS 27 SAINTS 13 F...HOYER the Starter as #BullsOnParade has Three QBs they can count on as the TEXANS look good vs the NOLA Gumbo SAINTS in the Dome!..."FAKE Games" 2K15 Week 3 Sunday Matinee as the TEXANS Camp Auditions 2K15 will be tough cuts! #HOUvsNO #BullsOnParade #GeauxSaints #FakeGames2K15Wk3

The Houston Texans QBs all three including Sunday's starter Brian Hoyer played extremely well versus the New Orleans Saints in the Texans 27-13 win. Yes the talk was HBO's Hard Knocks featuring "Bulls on Parade" but the message from Texans lead man Bill O'Brien appears to be resonating through that Locker Room.

With most of the key cogs sitting out (DT/DE JJ Watt dba "Area 99", DT Vince "I am a Point Guard" Wilfork and a host of others) the other players stepped in and stepped up and played well. Texans 2K15 3rd rounder WR Jaelen Strong from Arizona State seems to be picking up things as he had five grabs for 40 yards and a TD. #1 RB Alfred Blue also had a score in the Texans 1st drive capping a 7-play 80 yard drive.

Saints back up Luke McKown dba Brees' Caddy for 2K15 was 8 for 14 for 117 yards as RB Edwin Baker had a nifty 45-yard TD run in the 2nd half closing that 20-6 lead to 20-13 Texans. Texans QBs combined for 21 for 35 with 217 yards and 2 TDs.

Drew Brees took the Saints down on his only drive of the game for a FG as they missed three straight times in the Red Zone. He was a jazzy 4 for 6 for 40 yards. Saints fall to 0-3 in the Fake Games for 2K15 as the Texans move to 2-1.

The last pre-season game for Fake Games 2K15 will be Thursday September 3rd as the Texans hit Jerry's World and the Saints head to Lambeau ending Auditions for 2K15 in the "Shield"!

TIGERS 2 BLUE JAYS 9 F...'JAYS go LONG BALL again as they hit 4 BOMBS on their way to a Three-Piece Sweep of the Motor City KITTIES!..."GET AWAY DAY" as "We ride in the BLUE Birds"! #DETvsTOR #MotorCityKitties #JaysNation #ALHappenings2K15

Toronto Blue Jays starter Mark Buerhle didn't need much run support but probably knew the way the Blue Birds have been eating at the dish he would get more than enough. Detroit Tigers starter Alfredo Simon had to be thinking make these guys hit the ball off their "Sweet Spots" as Simon didn't and the Motor City Kitties again victims of the Long Ball "North of the Border"!

It was Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion taking Simon deep in the 1st for a 2-0 lead as they went Solo Bombs. In the 2nd it was 'Jays CF Kevin Pillar getting in on the act going two-run blast off Simon making it 4-0 'Jays as we picking the one common theme in the 'Jays three-piece sweep of Detroit Hardball.

Then in the 4th 'Jays back stop Russell Martin takes Simon deep for another two-run Dinger and "We the North" Hardball was off to a 6-0 lead through four. Buerhle would go six allowing just two runs as would get the win and move to 14-6. The 'Jays would add three more to the Tab and win going away 9-2.

Toronto with the Yankees staying close moves to 74-56 as New York is 71-54 just two games back. The Motor City Kitties all but done at 60-70 tied with the Carmines in the AL Wild Card some 8 games back of the #2 Rangers talking Wild Card! 

RED SOX 4 METS 5 F...AMAZINS' avoid the sweep from the CARMINES as some timely Hitting and the PEN comes through!..."GET AWAY DAY" as the METROPOLITANS feel the NATS getting closer! #BOSvsNYM #BoSoxNation #Amazins #MLBInterLeague

Nee York Mets starter Noah Syndergaard helped his own cause in the 2nd with an RBI single for the first score of the game as the Mets went up 1-0. Syndergaard would cruise through five before hitting some unexpected turbulence in the 6th.

The Boston Red Sox behind starter Wade Miley would get on the board in the 6th on a "Big Papi" two-run blast his 494th of his career as he needs six to get to 500 and 10 to tie the Baltimore Orioles HOF Eddie Murray. Mile could not hold that 2-1 Carmines lead in the bottom half of the 6th as Juan Uribe (two-run Double) and Anthony Recker (RBI single) would put the Mets back into the lead at 4-2 after six.

With both Miley and Syndergaard getting no-decisions it would be up to the Pens late. That was after Syndergaard would give up a ground-rule RBI double to Jackie Bradley Jr. in the 7th for a 4-3 Mets lead. Then with Mets reliever Hansel Robles on the "Bump" Carmines CF Mookie Betts would go RBI  triple tying the game up at 4-4.

In the bottom half of the 8th the Mets off of Carmines reliever Heath Henbree would get an GW RBI single from Michael Cuddyer as the Mets Pen would shut it down in the 8th and 9th for the "W"! The Amazins' move to 72-58 and that is good for a six game lead over the Nats in the NL East.

The Bo Sox falling to 60-70 almost gets the sweep as their hopes of getting into October Hardball is via the AL Wild Card. Boston is 8 games back of the #2 AL Wild Card Team the Texas Rangers as we go to press.

Mets Captain Save-A-Game Jeurys Familia grabs his 35th save of 2K15 against 40 chances...

"FAKE Games" 2K15 Week 3 goes SUNDAY Fun Day in "A QB Driven League" as we get #BullsOnParade visiting the Mercedes-Benz SUPERDOME and the NOLA Gumbo SAINTS...and in the Nightcap its #BIRDgang hitting the "BLACK HOLE" in East Bay with Sunday "DATE NIGHT" with #RAIDERSnation! #HOUvsNO #ARIvsOAK #AQBDrivenLeague #FakeGames2K15Wk3

As we get the last two games before Thursday September 3rd Auditions for the 53-man roster we get two solid games. The 1's should be on display as it's all about the QB in both as the Texans starter Brian Hoyer has more than a leg up on his back up Ryan "No Show" Mallett. Let's talk games for Sunday August 30, 2015...

#BullsOnParade @ #NOLAGumboSaints 4pm ET 

The Texans march into the Superdome with their #1 QB in Brian Hoyer was named started last week. That led to QB Ryan Mallett missing a whole practice late last week saying he over slept. The NFL Signal-Caller has to have some leadership qualities and if he doesn't lookout!

Meanwhile the Texans Offense needs to get some kinks out at RB and at WR. Who will be the #1 RB will it be Alfred Blue or Chris Polk as he in my guesstimation has passed #1 RB Jon Grimes? Then who plays #3 WR to #1 WR DeAndre Hopkins and #2 WR Nate 2K13 3rd round pick WR Jaelen Strong might not even make that 53-man roster?

For the Saints 2nd-year WR Brandin Cooks has been out of sight but its the "Big" WR in Brandon Coleman. Coleman has been "Awesome" in camp and in games. That Jimmy Graham for Max Unger Trade is looking more and more like a win/win as Unger will have that O-Line in better shape then it has been in quite sometime.

The Saints "D" will be looking for someone to add to that Pass Rush not names Cameron Jordan. 2K15 Saints #1 Pick ILB Stephone Anthony of "Death Valley Orange" dba Clemson Tigers adds quality depth at backer. DE Akiem Hicks will star opposite of Jordan and he is #76 in your #GeauxSaints Program!

#NOLAGumboSAINTS WR @BrandinCooks 
2K14 Highlights

#BirdGang @ #RaiderNation 8pm ET

The Cardinals are ready to fly as QB Carson Palmer goes #BirdGang goes its that simple. The "D" is more than ready and it will be on the offense. Scat back/WR John Brown has been wreaking havoc on opposing defenses as he has been a tough lining up everywhere but in the Neutral Zone. The Cardinals at least on paper this might be their year. Former Rise Up Star ILB Sean Weatherspoon might be their new impact player on "D" as he has missed two seasons straight before the Falcons letting him walk.

Oakland is under new direction and 2nd year QB Derek Carr must take the necessary steps to becoming a solid QB leading the Silver and Black. The Raiders 2K15 #1 overall pick WR Amari Cooper is the "Truth" and he will be opposite of "Crab of Fisherman's Wharf" in former 49ers WR Michael Crabtree.  FB Marcel Reese is the best kept-secret in the "Shield" and he should be even more dominant with Cooper on then outside.

That Raiders "D" with 2nd-year Stud OLB/DE Khalil Mack will be lining up with his hands on the ground more getting after the QB.  Can that 2nd level led by Saints castoff MLB Curtis Lofton and future NFL HOF Charles Woodson hold that unit together navigating through the AFC West?

CUBS 2 DODGERS 5 F...Car Trouble in the 7th dooms LESTER'S Quality Start as the DODGERS go for the Three-Game Sweep on ESPN's Sunday Night Hardball!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" the CUBS Train is might be derailed if they get swept on Sunday! #CHCvsLAD #NorthSiders #DodgerNation #MaddonBall

Everything was going well for Chicago Cubs starter Jon Lester on Saturday Night in Chavez Ravine vs the Dodgers. Lester had allowed just one run in the 3rd off the Ash, Maple, or Bamboo of Dodgers CF Enrique Hernandez as that tied the game at 1-1.

Cruising through six Lester took his game into the 7th with the Cubs leading 2-1 as Addison Russell scored on a "Balk" in the 5th as Dodgers starter Mat Latos did the honors.  Latos was solid as he goes 4 2/3 frames allowing just two runs on four hits with a No-Decision.

In the Dodgers four-run 7th frame it was a Carl Crawford single and steal that started things off. Then a A.J. Ellis single with Jose Peraza up with Ducks on the corners. His RBI Double scored Crawford tying the game at 2-2. Lester then gives up a two RBI single to Andre Ethier who has had some huge hits of late pushing the L.A. up 4-2 as that would end Lester's Night.

An A-Gon RBI single would push that Dodgers lead up to 5-2 and that would be the final. Lester takes the "L" going six falling to 8-10 as all five runs were put on his Tab! The Cubbies fall to 73-55 as the Dodgers move to 72-56. With the Gigantes losing 6-0 to the Redbirds both teams get help in the right direction.

Sunday's "Get Away Day" Game for the North Siders goes ESPN Sunday Night Hardball as we get Jake Arrieta vs Alex Maddon Ball tries to stop the bleeding!    

CARDINALS 6 GIANTS 0 F...Enough is enough as LYNN goes seven strong SHUTOUT frames as the REDBIRDS blank Fisherman's Wharf Hardball 6-0!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" as "MATHENY BALL" is just too good from game to game to stay in the "L" Column! #STLvsSF #Redbirds #Gigantes #MathenyBall #SeniorCircuitHappenings2K15

The St. Louis Cardinals took that 5-4 loss on the chin last night after the San Francisco Giants went walk-off. The mark of a good team is to quickly forget the last game and move onto the next and that in a "Nutshell" is "Matheny Ball". The Redbirds did that behind a masterful performance by starter Lance Lynn and blanks the Champs 6-0.

Lynn goes seven strong shutout frames for his 11th "W" of 2K15. He was matched through four frames by his counterpart Gigantes starter Ryan Vogelsong who also had four shutout frames until the 5th. The Redbirds broke open a scoreless affair as they put up a crooked four to go up 4-0 as that was all Lynn would need. They would add two more runs in the 9th for a 6-0 win as Vogelsong falls to 9-10 in 2K15.

The Redbirds move to 83-46 and as we go to press that is four game sup on the Pittsburgh Pirates and nine games up on the Cubbies! The Giants fall to 69-60 and three games back of the Dodgers as L.A.D. entertains the North Siders at Chavez Ravine later tonight!    

TIGERS 1 BLUE JAYS 15 F...The Real Score was @EnCadWin 9 the Motor City KITTIES 1 as "E2" goes "Chicks dig the Big FLY" x 3 on Detroit Pitching!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" + "MAKING NOISE" = Mr. ENCARNACION have a day partner! #DETvsTOR #MotorCityKitties #JaysNation #BlueBirds @EnCadWin

Are you kidding me as Toronto Blue Jays DH/1B  Edwin Encarnacion and his hit streak hits 24 and the Blue Birds move to 73-56 but that wasn't the whole story. @EnCadWin in the Twitterverse lights up the Motor City Kitties Pitching Staff for not one not two but three Big Flies accounting for nine of the 'Jays fifteen runs.

Encarnacion homered in the 1st a three-run bomb off Tigers starter Buck Farmer bucking the! Then with the score 6-1 'Jays @EnCadWin takes Tigers reliever Guido Knudson deep for a two-run HR making it 9-1.

With the score 9-1 it came to as @EnCadWin takes Tigers reliever Alex Wilson deep for a Grand Slam and four more Ribbies as the 'Jays went up 13-1 as Russell Martin homered behind "E2" a two-run blast to cap the scoring at 15-1 'Jays. Taking a look at Encarnacion's Tab for Saturday August 29, 2015 vs the Detroit Tigers:

3 for 5 w/4 R 9 RBI Solo HR 3-Run Hr Grand Slam 

'Jays starter Drew Hutchison gets his 113th victory as he moves to 13-2 and its not easy pitching with that much run support and some credit goes to "Hutch" for throwing strikes and not making it a fast-pitch softball game at the dish!

Detroit falls to 60-69 as they are dunzo for 2K15...

Big @TrentW71 and #HTTR goes 5-year Extension!...#HTTR O-Line Depth Chart 2K15!..."A QB Driven League" don't tell the Dancing BEARS upfront that Hog Wash as TRENT WILLIAMS gets "Paid in Full"! @TrentW71 @Redskins #HTTR #BoomerSooner

The Washington Redskins extended OLB Ryan Kerrigan the most important part of the defense and now they take care of the other side of the Wilson pigskin. The 'Skins and OT Trent "I slapped Richard Sherman" Williams agrees on a five-year extension worth just north of $66 million.

The former 2010 'Skins 1st  Rounder from the Oklahoma Sooners (T-Will was OU Teammates with current Vikes in the "Twin Cities Avenger" #28 Adrian Peterson and OT Phil Loadholt) has been all of that since day 1 and has a nasty streak you need in the trenches to be part of "Effective Team"!

The new deal includes a $8.5 million signing bonus and $43.25 million guaranteed. T-Will's Base Salary during the deal will be right at $13.2 million with an overall Salary Cap Hit of $14.2 million and some change.  Let's take a look at the #HTTR O-Line Depth Chart for 2K15:

STEELERS @ BILLS as "TRIPLE DIAMOND Chronicles" goes "FAKE Games" 2K15 Week 3 Prime Time on NFL Network!...It will be STEELERS "O" vs that BILLS Mafia "D" as the 1's should play at least a Half simulated for Week 1! #PITvsBUF #SteelerNation #BillsMafia #TripleDiamondChronicles #FakeGames2K15

"Here We Go" Steelers "Here We Go" as the new Buffalo Bills will be waiting on the other end. As we embark on Game #4 for the Steelers this version of "Fake Games" 2K15 the Steelers Offense all of a sudden for Week 1 looks a wreck!

The Bills on the other end is searching for a good Starting QB to lead them and they may have to go on Shark Tank to see if they can find an Investor to put some faith in that "O"! Having said that the Bills "D" will be among the elite in the "Shield" in 2K15 and this will be a stern test for both teams going prime time on NFL Network for a Saturday Matinee!

Orchard Park, N.Y.

#Steelers love the 6'4" 250 el bees of violent-type...always have
(Video below talking Steelers LBs)  

#PITvsBUF what to watch for: 

Steelers need to keep Big Ben somewhat clean as Pouncey is out...O-Line Business

Bills need to make sure if E.J. Manuel is going to be the Starter they need to be 100% sure of this and if he is not he might be #3...

Starters on both sides of the Wilson pigskin will play most of the 1st half and maybe start the 2nd Half...

Steelers need to find a #3 WR as that might be former Raiders 1st rounder Darrius Heyward-Bey...

Bills WR Sammy Watkins has to get the "Pig" at some points as the Bills Mafia needs to take the Ferrari out of the Garage...

Bills DT Marcel Dareus is not a happy camper but he will show up on Saturday...

Steelers Backers have been really good in pre-season as the D-Line has to be better...

Steelers Center Cody Wallace will get the Job but the Black and Yellow signed fan favorite Doug Legurskey this past week and he should also get some looks...

Will Mike Vick get a few snaps as Landry Jones will probably get the snaps after Big Ben exits...

Bills Secondary is one of the best as they will get tested on Saturday and it will also be a test for the Steelers WR/TE Group...

new Bills Mafia RB "Shady" McCoy how mush will he play and if he does that is a huge plus for QB Manuel...

Depth Chart Battles ensue...who makes the 1st wave of cuts?

Remember this is the last time you will see the 1's until we enter Kickoff 2K15...             

CARDINALS 4 GIANTS 5 F..."TOMMY" with the Walk-Off but MARLON BYRD got the GIGANTES started with a "GRANNY" in Frame One!..."WEEKEND BENDERS" as BOCHY Magic knows SEPTEMBER Hardball is near! #STLvsSF #STLCards #SFGiants #MathenyBall #BochyMagic

St. Louis Cardinals starter Michael Wacha didn't pitch all that bad after he gave up a bottom half of the 1st Grand Slam" the Giganets OF Marlon Byrd making it 4-0 San Fran after one. To the Redbirds credit they chipped away at Gigantes starter Mike Leake and slowly but surely tied the ball game up in the 6th on a Wild Pitch by Leake.

The Redbirds got on the board back in the 3rd down 4-0 on an RBI single by Yadier Molina and a two RBI double by Stephen Piscottty cutting that 4-0 deficit to 4-3. Neither starter was around for the decision as Matheny Hardball and Bochy Magic then went to the October Hardball Chess Board to finish the game and Bochy came out on top.

Both Pens were excellent as Wacha went out after six and Leake went into the 7th as the score remained 4-4 until the bottom half of the 9th. Redbirds reliever Kevin Siegrist allowed a lead-off single by Brandon Belt and walked Buster Posey as Ducks were on the pond at 1st and 2nd. Byrd then flied out making it 1st and 2nd with one out. They walked Gregor Blanco to get to Kelby Tomlinson to set up maybe an Inning Ending double-play.

Tomlinson had different ideas as he took Siegrist's 2-2 offering to center for the Walk-Off and a Giants "W" as they move to 69-59 and stays on pace with both the Dodgers and Cubs. The Redbirds fall to 82-46 as their 4-game win streak is snapped. Something tells me these two will somehow and someway be locking horns as we approach Halloween 2K15...just sayin'!    

CUBS 1 DODGERS 4 F...@ClaytonKersh22 doing what he does as DODGER Blue rides 22 to Victory!..."MAKING NOISE" as L.A.D. tries to stay on top in the NL West! #CHCvsLAD #CubsNation #DodgerNation #VinScullyIn16

The Los Angeles Dodgers trying to ad some distance between them and their NL West rival San Francisco Giants as they have a huge series coming up on Monday slides by the Chicago Cubs on Friday Night. The one common theme was Clayton Kershaw was starting and dealing as he readies himself for the stretch beating the North Sides 4-1.

@ClaytonKershh22 mows down some 14 Cubbies on his way to an 11-6 record and the only mistake he made all night was flattening out the "Express" with Cubs All-Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo sitting "Dead Red" for a 440 foot blast to center tying the game up at 1-1 in the 4th. That would be it for "Maddon Ball" as the Dodgers scored three in the 6th on Cubbies starter Jason Hammel as he was chased in the 6th.

Hammel's Tab was 5 frames and some change allowing three runs on four hits as he struck out five and walked three falling to 7-6. The Dodgers Captain Save-A-Game Kenley Jansen records his 26th save as Dodger Blue moves to 71-56. "Maddon Ball" falls to 73-54 and that is their 3rd loss in a row after starting the week off with a "W" on Tuesday Night versus the Gigantes!

CARDINALS @ GIANTS as "WEEKEND BENDERS" and the REDBIRDS test the defending World Champs and yes they have some major resolve with three PARADE Routes in the last Six Seasons!...BASEBALL Town U.S.A. trying to win 110 plus and the GIGANTES trying to get to October Hardball! #STLvsSF #Redbirds #OrangeAugust #MathenyBall #BochyMagic

These two teams will be tending to their business and at the same time the Gigantes will be watching that Cubs/Dodgers Three-Piece at Chavez Ravine impacting both the NL West and NL Wild Card. The Redbirds arrive having swept the D-Backs in four-straight. The Gigantes are fresh off beating the North Siders the last two of three as the "Mad Bum" is the best Parcel Service in 162 delivering "Same Day"! Now we get three near Fisherman's Wharf and B.A.R.T. impacting the Senior Circuit...

"Weekend Benders
Fisherman's Wharf and the B.A.R.T

STL Lynn (10-6) vs SF Vogelsong (9-9)

Sunday August 30, 2015 @ 4:05pm ET 
STL Garcia (6-4) vs SF Heston (11-7)

The Giants just nee to protect AT&T Stadium and win the series. Yes they will have no "Mad Bum" in Madison Bumgarner but Heston and Leake have been solid. The Redbirds are winning all the time and having fun doing it as they are a loose bunch with Ace RHP Michael Wacha leading off things.

At the plate the Redbirds are getting it from everyone but Kolten Wong and Matt Carpenter are the two that get the most attention as they are the table-setters for "Matheny Ball" and if they go the Redbirds are going 100!

As for the Gigantes it's always been back stop Buster Posey but the Brandon Boys (Crawford/Belt) have both had sensational seasons and NL Rookie of the Year Candidate Matt Duffy has simply been delicious at the Hot Corner and at the dish!

Let's...Play Three!

Note: the two premier Back Stops in the Show in "Yaddy" Molina and Buster Posey will be on display and a delightful to watch....     

CUBS @ DODGERS as the MADDON Ball heads to Chavez Ravine for Three vs DODGER Nation in "WEEKEND BENDERS"!...Something has to give in the NL Wild Card and NL West this weekend! #CHCvsLAD #NorthSiders #DodgerNation #SeniorCircuitElite

FAKE Games 2K15 in "A QB Driven League" going Week #3 T.G.I.F.!...#PATS in Queen City, N.C. vs #PANTHERSPride...#RestoreTheROAR vs the KHANstruction #JAGS...and the Music City #TITANS at Arrowhead vs #RedFRIDAY! #NEvsCAR #DETvsJAX #TENvsKC #FakeGames2K15Wk3 #AQBDrivenLeague

Fake Games 2K15 continues as this will be the last of seeing the 1's playing at least a half and the start of the 2nd half as Injuries to key cogs are piling up in the masses. Let's get to Week 3 Part going T.G.I.F. as we get three on the Menu!

Fake Games 2K15
NFL Pre-Season
Week #3 T.G.I.F. Edition

#PatsTalk @ #PanthersPride 7:30pm ET

I expect Brady to get at least three to four series or two really good one and the Pats must score. After that it is Tony Garoppolo's Show as he looked really good in game #2 versus the 2's and 3's but its still counts as solid production heading in the right direction. Will we see #15 Reggie Wayne as he just arrived this past week in camp?

The Panthers have work to do as they try and find out what WRs outside of Vets Teddy Ginn Jr. and Jerricho Cotchery they can trust. The safety valve is Pro-Bowl TE Greg Olsen and after that Cam will need to improvise on the fly. That "D" should be solid as any "D" with #59 Luke Kuechly (Video below) on it will be at least in the middle of the pack and heading north.

#RestoreTheRoar @ #KHANstruction #Jags 8pm ET

The Lions have plenty of options on offense as QB Matthew Stafford appears to be getting even better as he should in year #2 under Air Caldwell. The "D" led by Backer DeAndre Levy is making strides as it will depend largely on that secondary and the front. All eyes need to be on former Purple Browns and Steelers Killer Haloti Ngata as he takes Mr. Suh's place and trust the big dancing Teddy Bear has something left in the tank.

The Jags "D" last week went after EA Sports Madden 16 Poster Child Odell Beckham Jr. as they were trying to take a trip to their favorite candy ship. That ha Jags lead man Gus Bradley imprint all over them as :"Aggressive" is the calling card. QB Blake Bortles should have better protection and former 'Bama RB TJ Yeldon is my pick for offensive rookie of the year in the AFC...just watch!

#MusicCityTitans @ Arrowhead vs #RedFriday 8pm ET 

It's only fitting that the Chiefs keep playing on Friday as they are the original Hash Tag #RedFriday. Last week that "D" was hunting Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and they look like a Top 5. My major concern is QB Alex Smith as WR Jeremy Maclin is his safety valve moving forward with Jamaal Charles doing everything but play "D".

The Titans might have a QB Controversy as Zack Mettenberger played extremely well last week as did Marcus Mariota. RB Bishop Sankey has ben hearing rumblings that is job is in jeopardy and ran like Forrest Gump last week and the "Waterboy" Bobby Boucher. Will that Dick LeBeau led "D" flourish in Tennessee as he has pieces and that is the concern? Where is WR Justin Hunter as I have checked all the Milk Cartons in Nashville and he is not missing but in camp?           

CARDINALS 5 DIAMONDBACKS 3 F...REDBIRDS playing "MATHENY BALL" and getting a jump on #RedOctober takes Four from the D-BACKS!..."GET AWAY DAY" as the REDBIRDS sweep the season series from Arizona 7-0! #STLvsARI #STLCards #DBacks #MathenyBall #RedOctober

The St. Louis Cardinals continues their onslaught on Senior Circuit Foes as they go into the B.O.B. (What use to Bank One Ballpark in Downtown Phoenix, Arizona) and takes four straight. The Redbirds also take the season series 7-0 as they move to an impressive 82-45 and on track to win possibly 110 games.

It was Redbirds starter Carlos Martinez a 2K15 All-Star who went six giving up three runs on four hits as he struck out six moving to 13-6 in 2K15. The Cards starting the scoring in the 1st off of a Kolten Wong two-bagger making it 1-0 Cards. They added to that in the 2nd with a Tony Cruz solo HR and  and a Matt Carpenter RBI double making it 3-0 Cards. D-Backs starter Rubby De La Rosa gave up those three and would alter give up two more and those runs would be the decisive ones to get #RedOctober into the Winner's Circle.

The D-Backs came right back in the bottom half of the 2nd hanging a crooked three on Martinez tying the game at 303 and that frame was highlighted by a Jake Lamb RBI single and a Ender Inciarte two RBI single. Brandon Moss of the Redbirds would break up the tie in the 5th taking De La Rosa deep for a two-run blast making it 5-3 as both Pens would hold up the rest of the way.

A Jason Heyward amazing catch saves Redbirds Captain Save-A-Game Trevor Rosenthal as he grabs his 41st save of 2K15. St. Louis leads the NL Central by 4.5 games over #BUCN and has the Shows best W-L at 82-45 some 37 games over .500.

The D-Backs getting swept and losing their 4th straight might have doomed their chances of making it interesting in the NL West as they are 8.5 games behind the NL West leading Dodgers...

CUBS 1 GIANTS 9 F...The MAD BUM carries the GIGANTES past the NORTH SIDERS as HAREN might be done on the Hill!..."GET AWAY DAY" as San Fran takes the "Rubber Game" taking two of three! #CHCvsSF #MaddonBall #OrangeAugust #SeniorCircuitElite2K15

The Chicago Cubs knew last night after leaving the park and a quick turnaround for the "Rubber Game" that San Francisco Giants Thursday starter Madison Bumgarner would be tough. They were right and the Gigantes finish the North Siders off taking two of three with the "Mad Bum" again in his comfort zone all game long!

Chicago opened the scoring in the 2nd as Starlin Castro went RBI double for a 1-0 lead scoring Anthony Rizzo little did they know that would be all the last time the Cubbies crossed the dish in this one. San Fran came right back in the bottom half of the same frame scoring on a Juan Perez double tying the game up at 1-1.

From that point on the Gigantes jumped on Cubbies starter Dan Haren in the 3rd putting up a crooked four as former Cubs OF Marlon Byrd would cap off the frame taking Haren for a three-run blast and a 4-1 Giants lead.

Then with the game in the bag in the 8th Giants second baseman Kelby Tomlinson would take Cubbies reliever James Russell with the sacks packed deep for a "Granny" that's right "Touch'em All" as the Gigantes would go onto win 9-1 going away.  

The "Mad Bum" moves to 16-6 and more importantly the Giants stay close to both the NL West leading Dodgers and the 2nd place in the NL Wild Card these Chicago Cubs. Chicago falls to 73-53 as Haren falls to 8-9. 

ANGELS 2 TIGERS 0 F...A day after VERLANDER One-Hits the HALOS it was SHOEMAKER and the HALOS Pen Two-Hitting the Motor City Kitties!..."GET AWAY DAY" as the HALOS are trying to chase down the 'STROS Show! #LAAvsDET #Halos #MotorCityKitties #JuniorCircuitHappenings2K15

Detroit Tigers RHP and Ace Justin Verlander was flirting with a no-hitter last night versus the visiting Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and ended up giving a one hit for a 1-0 Tigers "W"!. Angels "Get Away Day" starter Matt Shoemaker came right back trying to throw  no-hitter of his own as he goes into the 8th allowing a hit for a 2-0 Halos shutout "W" over Detroit Hardball.

Both Halos reliever Joe Smith and Captain Save-A-Game Huston Street (Sv, 31) closed down the rest of the 8th and the 9th allowing one more hit. Los Angeles scored on a 6th inning "El Hombre" Albert Pujols RBI single and a Shane Victorino Sac-fly in the 9th for its two runs. That Pujols RBI broke open a scoreless game as Tigers starter Randy Wolf was magnificent as well going seven allowing five hits and a run striking out five.

The Halos now move into a tie with the 2nd place in the AL West Texas Rangers at 65-62. The AL West leading 'Stros Show is 5.5 games up on both at a 71-57 clip. The Motor City Kitties at 60-67 for what its worth is 5.5 games back of the AL #2 Wild Card slot.      


DODGERS 1 REDS 0 F...The "GREINKSTER" quiets that RED STOCKING's Line Up as DODGER Blue gets a much-needed Three-Game Sweep!..."GET AWAY DAY" as then DODGERS finally get to 70 W's! #LADvsCIN #DodgerNation #RedStockings #DodgerBlue2K15

The Los Angeles Dodgers escape Great American Ballpark along the shores of the Ohio River with a three-game sweep. The Dodgers needed the "Greinkster" in RHP Zack Greinke on the "Hill and a bases-loaded fielder's choice to get a run to blank Cincy 1-0.  

Greinke improving to 14-3 went seven strong allowing just four hits striking out 9 and walking two. The Dodgers Pen was equally as effective going the last two frames allowing a hit and striking out one as the Dodgers improve to 70-56 reaching the 70-win plateau and the 5th team to do this on the Senior Circuit.

The Red Stockings "Nightmare at Great American Ballpark" continues without Freddie as they fall to a dismal 52-74. Red Stockings back stop Tucker Barnhart led the Cincy Attack going 2 for 4 as one has to wonder  if they blow it up at the 2K15 Winter Meetings will both Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips be the Players to pick up in a trade?

Cincy starter Anthony DeSclafani takes the "L" falling to 7-10 as he went seven solid frames allowing a run on six hits striking out six with a walk. Dodgers now fly across the country back to Chavez Ravine to face the blue-hit Cubbies and "Maddon Ball" for the weekend!   

Bluedude Sportstalk SPORTS SHORTS Take 226...Steelers WR MARTAVIS BRYANT facing 4-Game Suspension...Former 76ers Great DARRYL DAWKINS dba Chocolate Thunder from Planet LOVETRON dies at 58! @TheBestUNO @ThunderDunk53

Just in Pittsburgh Steelers WR and #1 Deep threat and former Clemson Tigers standout Martavis Bryant faces a four-game suspension for violating the Shield's Substance Abuse Policy. Bryant now joins Offensive Starters RB Le'Veon Bell (2-gm Suspension) and Center Maurkice Pouncey (Ankle Surgery) as three of the Top 5 Steelers Play makers out for at least two weeks. Bryant will appeal the suspension but "Word around the Water Cooler" is it is 99% sure that Bryant will face four-games!

Sad news in the "Logo" Today as former Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers Star and Dunker Extraordinaire Darryl Dawkins passed away today at the age of 58. "Chocolate Thunder" as he was called was the first player I saw shatter an NBA Backboard. He was also a part of one of the Bluedude's All-Time Favorite Teams in the 1976-77 Sixers with the likes of Dr. J. Doug Collins, George McInnis, Henry Bibby, Bobby Jones, and World B. Free to name a few.  "Chocolate Thunder" also told many he use to go to a Planet to get his dunks called Planet Lovetron...and you know nothing about that as the Bluedude strikes!

R.I.P. "Chocolate Thunder" you will be missed...

Here some Dunks from "Chocolate Thunder" & Planet Lovetron!  

AL ROOKIE of the Year Race 2K15 in "WORD around the WARNING Track" as its all about "C2" in the 'STROS Show Shortstop CARLOS CORREA and the Top 5 Candidates! #ALRookieOfTheYear2K15 #WordAroundTheWarningTrack #MLBAwards2K15

Who is the lead Donut-Runner/Car Washer on the Junior Circuit as we head into September Hardball and the stretch to get to October Hardball? Hands down as we go to press it's all about the "Next in Line" for Show Stardom in Houston Astros Shortstop Carlos Correa.

Correa has come on like a Vet who has shown this is not his first Rodeo. He has some elite company but this kid is the real deal and not since Derek Jeter or even Alex Rodriguez has the Show see since promise at Shortstop. Let's talk the Top 5 AL Rookie of the Year Candidates as we go to press on Thursday August 27, 2015:

"Word around the Warning Track"
2K15 AL Rookie of the Year 
2K15 Junior Circuit 
#1 Donut Runner/Car Washer

Top 5 in the Mix as of Thursday August 27, 2015

1. SS Carlos Correa #StrosShow #HTownHardball

Forget his .278 average with 15 HR 43 RBI with 37 runs and 16 two-baggers in just 68 games Correa is all that scattered smothered and covered. He has been the best Rook on the Junior Circuit since the Mid Summers Classic and he and teammate second baseman Jose Altuve dba "Pocket Avenger" is the future #1 Duo up in the middle in the show!

2. 3B Miguel Sano #Twinkies #TwinCitiesHardball

I know what your thinking where is Twins 5-Star Prospect CF Byron Buxton well he is there but as we go to press it's all about Sano. In 46 games and 162 appearances at the dish he has 30 free passes and that is simply Plate Discipline. Throw in a .284 average with 37 Ribbies and a dozen Bombs you had better get the Twinkies now as he and Buxton will light the Junior Circuit up in 2016 with 162 ahead of them.

3. SS Francisco Lindor #Tribe #ClevelandHardballRocks

Just when you though the future at SS in the Show and on the Junior Circuit belonged to Correa here comes then Tribes Francisco Lindor. Just like Correa with 68 games under his belt he can rake with a .310 average with 7 HRs and 30 RBI and 46 base on balls. Look if Correa falls slightly and this Kid keeps raking adding more hits w/extra base hits...lookout!

4. Closer Roberto Osuna #BlueBirds #JaysNation

Are you kidding me we are talking about a 20 year-old Captain Save-A-Game who has 15 saves (16 SVO) and a 1.94 ERA and his squad is smack dab in the middle of a pennant race.  The 'Jays took off after that MLB Trade Deadline where they picked up Stars "Tulo" and D-Price but this kid might be the key in September.

5. 2B Devon Travis #BlueBirds #JaysNation

Mr. Travis will learn a lot from his new SS Troy Tulowitzki but before "Tulo" arrived he was already doing major work. a .304 average (3rd on the 'Jays)  with 8 HR and 35 RBI  in 62 games with 38 runs. Travis will be the second baseman for the 'Jays for years to come as the Junior Circuit is loaded with 5-Star Talent in the infield.

Miguel Sano's Journey from Dominican Republic to Twin Cities 

CUBS 2 GIANTS 4 F...GIGANTES behind PEAVY and that dynamic Two-Pack of ROMO and CASILLA with a few CUBS OF Woes ends their "L" streak versus MADDON BALL!..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" GIANT Fps stay away from ROMO and CASILLA that's Kryptonite! #CHCvsSF #NorthSiders #OrangeAugust #MaddonvsBochy

Chicago Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks and San Francisco Giants starter Jake Peavy both get two put up on them in the 1st frame. The both settled down after that a they game went into the bottom half of the 6th still knotted up at 2-2.

Then with Hendricks still on the "Bump" for Maddon Ball the Gigantes score on a double and triple as Hendricks would leave after six charged with four runs on five hits as he walked three and struck out six. The Giants got out of two jams as it was 1st and 3rd with one out as they struck out Anthony Rizzo and  Kris Bryant flied out ending the frame.

Then in the 7th it was 2nd and 3rd with one out and the Gigantes struck out both Addison Russell and Kyle Schwarber ending that rally. Then it was up to that Gigantes dynamic two-pack of Sergio Romo and Santiago Casilla from the pen.  Maddon Ball had no shot as Romo had the slide piece and Casilla (31st Save) was throwing a 2-seamer and a knuckle curve the nerve of him to throw 94 mph and drop down to 80 mph...filthy!

The Giants end their losing streak to the North Siders beating them for the 1st time in 2K15 moving to 67-59. Maddon Ball falls to 73-52 as their six-game win streak is over as they have been the hottest team since August 1st in the Show as the Blue Birds of Toronto is the 2nd hottest.

The "Rubber Game" features Dan Haren for the Cubbies versus the "Mad Bum" Giants Ace Madison Bumgarner for time 2:30pm CT.

ASTROS 6 YANKEES 2 F...GATTIS carrying the Big STICK helps McHUGH move to 14-7 as the 'STROS Show takes the "Rubber Game" in the BRONX Zoo!..."GET AWAY DAY" as if you didn't know HARRIS County Texas Hardball is the real deal in 2K15! #HOUvsNYY #StrosShow #BronxBombers #JuniorCircuitHeavies

If the New York Yankees Faithful didn't know who the 2K15 Houston Astros were they know now. The new 'Stros Show takes the "Rubber Game" 6-2 and outscored the Bronx Bombers 21-4 in doing so.

Tonight it was all about 'Stros DH Evan Gattis at the dish and starter Collin McHugh on the hill as they dominated the Bombers on this night. Gattis took Yankees Pitching deep x 2 both solo Blasts as the first one he hit was in the 2nd starting off the scoring. Houston's wild four-run 4th frame was capped off by two RBI singles and a Wild Pitch making it 5-0 Harris County Texas Hardball.

New York starter Michael Pineda (L, 9-8) went into the 5th and charged with all five runs on six hits as he gave up that one bomb to Gattis. McHugh (moving to 14-7) went 6 1/3 frames giving up that two-run HR to Yanks SS Didi Gregorius in the 6th making it 5-2 'Stros.    

Gattis then came back in the 8th taking Yanks reliever Adam Warren deep for his 2nd of the night as the 'Stros move to 71-57. The Yanks fall to 69-57 as they are still right there in the Blue Birds Neighborhood for the AL East lead...

METS 9 PHILLIES 4 F...The AMAZINS' keep rolling behind COLON and Run Support on your favorite ENERGY Drink!..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" Team Flushing Meadows Hardball is locked in and going for the NL East Title! #NYMvsPHI #Amazins #PhightinPhils #NLEastHappenings2K15

The New York Mets Wednesday Night starter Bartolo Colon knew going in all he had to do was throw strikes and keep the damage to a minimum. He did just that as the Amazins' hit the Philadelphia Phillies again in the "Chops" with a crooked three in the 1st frame on their way to an easy 9-4 victory.

That three-run 1st frame was highlighted by a Michael Cuddyer RBI double and a Michael Conforto RBI single. Colon took that run support on the Amazins' favorite Energy Drink and went seven scoreless allowing five hits and striking out eight moving his 2K15 W-Lto 11-11.

New York was up 4-0 when Michael Cuddyer took Phillies reliever Hector Neris deep for a two-run blast making it 6-0. The Phightin' Phils made it interesting in the bottom half of the 8th putting up a crooked four only to see New York bounce back with a crooked three in their half of the 9th.  Philadelphia starter Jerad Eickhoff takes the loss as he was hit in the 1st frame with those three runs.

Amazins' Captain Save-A-Game Tyler Clippard gets his 19th save of 2K15 as the new Amazins' move to 70-56. The Phightin' Phils fall to 50-77 as the NL East Race is slowly becoming an Team Flushing Meadows Hardball World...can you say slide over '86 Amazins'!

H.T.T.R. Injured-Reserve is filled with STARTERS as OLB GALETTE tears ACHILLES in "Hump Day" Practice!...#HTTR OLB Depth Chart and TE Depth Chart 2K15!...Bluedude Sportstalk FRONT LINE August 26, 2015 as though the 'SKINS didn't have enough to worry about playing NFC East Foes the INJURED-RESERVE runneth' over! #JGalette58 @Niles_Paul84 #LPaulsen82 #HTTR @Redskins

Where do you starts as Injured-Reserve is piling up all around the "Shield". Take it from Packers #1 WR Jordy Nelson (Torn ACL out for 2K15) who said, " Players need the work" and I agree to a certain extent. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers disagrees and I can see the pros and cons of both sides. Now tell that to the 2K15 Washington Redskins who lost another key cog to IR today and everyone is going down in D.C. talking H.T.T.R. except the Redskins Cheerleaders and Dan Snyder and it's not a joke!

Washington's starting OLB Junior Galette who they just signed two weeks ago on a 1-year deal coming from being cut from the NOLA Gumbo Saints through numerous media outlets tore his Achilles in practice today and will hit Season-Ending I.R. as the 'Skins have to be thinking about forfeiting the remaining two "Fake Games" of 2K15 paying the fine and getting to the 17 Week Trek with what is left!

Then you to the Redskins Tight End Slot and the #1 TE Niles Paul (Ankle) and his back up and #2 TE Logan Paulsen (Turf Toe) follows Paul to Season-Ending I.R.. As we go to press let's take a sneak peek at what H.T.T.R. Nation is looking at from a Depth Chart Standpoint:

OLB Depth Chart 2K15

Starters                       2nd Wave

LOLB R. Kerrigan    Preston Smith (2K15 2nd RD Pick) 
LILB K. Robinson    Will Compton
RILB P.Riley            Terrance Plummer (2K15 Undrafted)
ROLB T. Murphy (Junior Galette)   Jackson Jeffcoat (2K14 Undrafted)

360 Degrees...'Skins have to be thinking about sitting their #1 Player on that "D" in OLB Ryan Kerrigan the rest of pre-season. Former Stanford Standout Trent Murphy (Filling in for Junior Galette) has to step up and is more than capable with his motor. Another nugget is 2nd-year OLB Jackson Jeffcoat the #1 H.S. Player in Texas (Plano, TX East H.S.) back in 2010 and Bloodline (Dad former Cowboys Standout Jeff Jeffcoat) is behind Galette's Replacement and we will see if he can make the roster now Galette is done and moves to #2 on the ROLB Depth Chart.

TE Depth Chart 2K15

Jordan Reed

#2 Derek Carrier (Trade w/49ers 2K15)
#3 Je'Ron Hamm (2014 Undrafted 49ers)

360 Degrees...talking TE the 'Skins will be looking hard at the waiver line to see if they can get an Upgrade or find that gem as Jordan Reed is talented but do you trust him. A 2nd year player (D. Carrier) with hardly no time is not enough quality depth.

'Skins Lead Man Jay Gruden had his work cutout before this and could ill afford to have this train derail for the 2nd year in a row...stay tuned!

Ok we know he can't shoot but is working on that. His handle is cool as long as he stays away from 8am and 5pm traffic jams in the Queen City, N.C..  What got him "Paid in Full" was his motor, work ethic, and he is improving annually to the point you can start to see his mass potential that made him the #2 overall Pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

I am talking about New Orleans Pelicans Star PF Anthony Davis' Kentucky Teammate Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Yes M.K.G. formerly of the #BBN just "Got Paid" and not on Friday Night! The Charlotte Hornets and the St. Patrick's N.J. Alum M.K.G. go $52 million P.O. for 48 months as GM Rich Cho and Buzz City Owner Air Jordan get it done.

As we head into the 2015-16 season M.K.G. should be entering his 2nd year in the "Logo" considering like most following the recent trend of going "One and Done". Making no excuses for M.K.G. it has not been easy as he still has that Funky Shooting Stroke but the rest of his game is starting to come full circle. Let's check out M.K.G. 2014-15 Digits and the new Hornets 2015-16 starting five!

Cowboys DB SCANDRICK out for 2K15 with Torn ACL and MCL!...COWBOYS Secondary Depth Chart 2K15!... "SUNDAY TALK" as the 'BOYS and JERRY'S Gang loses "Big" on the Field and in the Locker Room!...That BYRON JONES Pick looks like a $100 Million right now! #OScandrick2K15Business @Cowboys #JerrysGang #CowboysD2K15

The Dallas Cowboys last season in Training Camp lost leader and play-caller on the "D" in Penn State Nittany Lion Sean Lee to a Torn ACL. Well that same injury bug hits the back end as the #1 DB the 'Boys have goes down yesterday carted-off the field and now we get confirmation.

Orlando Scandrick will miss the 2K15 season with a Torn ACL and MCL and just like that the Cowboys Fortune on "D" changes in a wink of an eye as he immediately goes on Season-Ending Injured-Reserve. Scandrick is not only the #1 CB for the 'Boys but he is the Voice, the heart, and the Leader. His In-Game Adjustments pre-snap is what that "D" and back end will miss the most as he can still lead from the sideline and in film study.

Now looking ahead as both Stephen and Jerry Jones beat all of us to the point and the pick that 2K15 #1 Cowboys Pick of UConn CB Byron Jones looks like a $100 million. Now the 1st rounder needs to pay immediate dividends for a Cowboys Secondary that has to be in a little bit of shock. Let's take a look at the 'Boys Secondary as we move things things up and around as the NFC East WRs they 'Boys will be facing will be coming for that secondary a little bit harder now!

2K15 Secondary Depth Chart


LCB B. Carr
FS JJ Wilcox
SS B. Church
RCB M. Claiborne * (O-Scandrick) **

2nd Wave

LCB Byron Jones ***
FS J. Heath
SS D. McCray
RCB Tyler Patmon ****

* Former 1st rounder LSU's Mo Claiborne has to step up and he should be up for the challenge as he is inserted into that line up not looking over his shoulder.

** O-Scandrick will be missed sorely in the Dime/Nickel Package as he gave the 'Boys major flexibility to go in the Slot and take that WR right out of the game.

*** Byron Jones was the 2K15 Combine Wonder Boy as his Broad Jump past 12' was the best ever as was his Vertical Leap. Now through reports all of that has translated to the field and Stephen and Jerry look like "Nostradamus of the Shield" making that pick.

**** Undrafted 2K14 CB Tyler Patmon from Oklahoma State has also stood out and the 'Boys have something they didn't have a few years back and that is Quality Depth throughout that Roster which equates to staying on top and competing for a Big Bowl Appearance every season. The 'Boys are back at that point as only time will tell as expectations are about as long as Jerry's Duffel Bags and that is 75 Central Expressway long!

CUBS 8 GIANTS 5 F...ARRIETA and the "TATER" lands near McCOVEY Cover doing damage on San Fran Hardball as the NORTH SIDERS put out the GIGANTES 8th Frame Rally but not after four runs!..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW report" as "MADDON BALL" has caught FIRE again! #CHCvsSF #LetsGoCubs #SFGiants #MaddonBall

Chicago Cubs RHP Jake "You can call me the Ace for now" Arrieta keeps "Maddon Ball" on the winning track as the Cubbies beat the San Francisco Giants 8-3 on Tuesday Night.  Jake was locked in as he has been for over two months now and the Run Support was right on time with crooked numbers!

The Cubs in the 3rd off Gigantes starter Matt Cain gets a three-run tater from Kyle Schwarber making it 3-0 Cubs. Then in the 4th it was a Miguel Montero two-run tater off Cain making it 5-0 Cubs as they would add another run that frame on a Tommy La Stella RBI single for a 6-0 Cubs lead.

Cain would exit after the 5th as his tab was "Large and in Charge" giving up six runs on eight hits and two via the "Tater"! Cubs Shortstop Starlin Castro then took Giants reliever Yusmeiro Petit deep for a Solo Blast as the Cubs would add another making it 8-0 Cubbies. Arrieta (6 IP 4 H R 0 ER BB 8 SO) would move to 16-6 in 2015 and picking up a head of steam for NL Cy Young...yes indeed!

The Gigantes  woke up late as they scored one on Arrieta in the 6th making 8-1 Cubbies but in the 8th San Fran rallied! The Gigantes hung a crooked four up in the 8th highlighted by a Andrew Susac based-loaded clearing double accounting for three of the four runs. Cubbies Skipper Joe Maddon finally after his 2nd visit went to Pedro Strop as he got Kelby Tomlinson to pop out to Anthony Rizzo ending the rally.

Cubbies Captain Save-A-Game Hector Rondon comes in the bottom of the 9th and goes 1-2-3 and that's your ball game. "Maddon Ball" moves to 73-51 just two games back of the Buccos for the #1 NL Wild Card. The Redbirds becomes the first team in the Show to hit 80 W's eating Diamondback Rattler Tacos in the B.O.B.!

The Gigantes fall to 66-59 falling three games back of the NL West leading Dodgers as they beat the Red Stockings earlier in the night...

ORIOLES 2 ROYALS 3 F...K.C. Hardball strikes early which was just enough for DUFFY and DAVIS!..." A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" as the O's try to stay in the AL Wild Card Race! #BALvsKC #BirdLandUSA #BeRoyalKC #JuniorCircuitHappenings2K15

The Kansas City Royals already in the driver's seat for the AL Central and the AL's best W-L as we go to press battled on Tuesday Night for a tough 3-2 win over the visiting O's from B-More. It was the Royals Offense that scored on a Kendrys Morales solo Blast in the 1st and two runs in the 2nd that as plenty for Royals starter Danny Duffy.

B-More made it real interesting all game long as they cut that three-run deficit to one in the 4th on Jonathan Schoop and Caleb Joseph RBI singles making it 3-2. Both Duffy (5.2 IP 5 H 2 R 2 ER 2 BB 5 SO) and O's starter Miguel Gonzalez (4.1 IP 6 H 3 R 3 ER 3 BB SO HR) would settle down after that as "Gonzo" would exit in the 5th.

It just came down to the Pens after that and the royals nailed it down preserving the 3-2 lead for five more frames. Royals #2 Captain Save-A-Game Wade Davis gets his 12th save of 2K15 filing in for K.C.'s #1 Captain Save-A-Game Greg Holland.

The Royals move to 77-48 while the O's fall to 62-63. That AL Wild Card is still within reach for Bird Land U.S.A. but they need to make a move quickly.      

CUBS @ GIANTS in "A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" as the NL Wild Card and NL Central and NL West Races are all going Photo Finish with no USAIN BOLT running! #CHCvsSF #CubsNation #MaddonBall #SFGiants

The Chicago Cubs arrives in the Bay riding high after another Walk-Off Job by Maddon Ball's #1 Donut/Coffee Runner Kris Bryant (don't forget about Addison Russell the Car-Wash Rookie) as the "North Siders" are 72-51.

The San Francisco Giants coming off another tough stretch but they have one thing going for them...they play in the NL West. Now that has turned into three to four is a crowd as the D-Backs and Friars are in the mix as the Dodgers toil in mediocrity. Can the Gigantes make a move with three versus the Cubbies at McCovey with all October Hopefuls watching?

"On the Bump" 

The Big Boys are going in this one Jake Arrieta for the Cubs and the "Mad Bum" for Orange October as this series will have an October Feel to it!

"At the Bump" 

Kris Bryant being "Clutch" when "Clutch" is in the Building coupled with Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber's Hitting has "Maddon Ball" looking like a Gaboon Viper lurking...

The Giants have followed Mr. Posey and the Brandon's in Crawford and Belt. Throw in the Rook Matt Duffy they are right there in the mix...  

NL ROOKIE of the Year Race 2K15 in "WORD around the WARNING TRACK" as it starts at the Hot Corner with Cubs BRYANT and Gigantes DUFFY the Top 5 Candidates! #NLRookieOfTheYear2K15 #WordAroundTheWarningTrack #MLBAwards2K15

They have come on like gang busters talking the lead men in the 2K15 NL Rookie of the Year Voting dba Senior Circuit's #1 Donut/Coffee Runner. It all starts at the "Hot Corner" on the Senior Circuit talking Chicago Cubs Kris Bryant and San Francisco Giants Matt Duffy. Let's breakdown the Top 5 in the Hunt as we come down the stretch...

"Word around the Warning Track
2K15 NL Rookie of the Year
2K15 Senior Circuit #1 Donut/Coffee Runner

Top 5 in the Mix as of Tuesday August 25, 2015

1. 3B Kris Bryant #MaddonBall #NorthSiders

Bryant just talking his Walk-Off Winners deserves to be on the List as he is 2nd on the North Siders" in HR (20) and RBI (75) to the Cubbies other All-Star Anthony Rizzo. K.B. also has 70 runs scored with 20 two-baggers and a dozen thefts and for a man that big...that's straight Icing on the cake! Yes he has 149 K's but he will fix that as he has looked like a Veteran from Day 1 as "Maddon Ball" would be lost without him.

2. 3B Matt Duffy #Gigantes #OrangeOctober

He has been better than advertised even the Giants didn't think he would be this good and efficient this early at the Hot Corner.  A .308 average with 10 HR 58 RBI and 57 runs scored along with 23 two-baggers he is right there with Bryant. Bryant though gets the edge being "Clutch" late with the Walk-Offs and that is the deciding factor as we go to press.  

3. SS/3B Jung Ho Kang #BUCN #Pirates

Kang has been steady-Eddy from day 1 and has given the Buccos flexibility at 3rd (Pedro Alvarez) and at SS (Neil Walker) with Grade A Production. Kang is hitting as we go to press .288 with 12 HR 46 RBI with 50 runs and 20 two-baggers. Throw those numbers in behind the Buccos Stars led by "Cutch 22" Andrew get a team that is prolific "At the Dish"! 

4. OF Randal Grichuk #Redbirds #MathenyBall

Grichuk's Production has been needed with key guys out and he has responded. A .284 average with 15 HR 44 RBI and 46 runs scored he has been better than good. Now he is on the D.L. until early to mid September the Redbirds will need to replace that production.

5. CF Joc Pederson #DodgerNation #TeamChavezRavine

He was the odds on favorite heading into All-Star Break. But he has hit the proverbial Rookie Wall right after the break and has never recovered. His average as we go to press is at .214 with 23 HR and 47 RBI. Pederson had 21 HR at the break but he does have 58 runs scored. He has been in such a "slump" Dodger Great Tommy LaSorda has even talked to the young fella with some words of advice!

#NorthSiders K.B. 17 Highlights simply delicious! 

Steelers #2 QB GRADKOWSKI to have Hand Surgery and here comes MIKE VICK!..."TRIPLE DIAMOND Chronicles" as MIKE VICK to visit the BLACK & YELLOW! @Steelers #SteelerNation #TripleDiamondChronicles #SteelerGang #Black&Yellow

More bad news for the Pittsburgh Steelers as Big Ben Roethlisberger's Caddy back up QB Bruce Gradkowski through numerous media outlets will have hand surgery. That surgery has forced the Steelers Hand in going out in the Free Agent Market and getting a veteran QB. That QB reportedly might be Mike Vick.

The Black and Yellow if Big Ben goes down early this season cannot ride the Landry Jones Train just yet and Vick would be a welcomed addition and to the Locker Room. He is no longer the "Mike Vick Experience" as he once was for the Dirty Birds of Atlanta but this is the new Vick.

Yes he would have to have a crash course in the Playbook but he has plenty of time for that and that would be a comforting feeling for the Steelers Coaches and Players moving forward with Vick behind Big Ben. Stay Tuned as Vick is visiting with the Steelers at their South Side Complex Today...

BENGALS 11 BUCCANEERS 25 F...#FireTheCannons as "Famous JAMEIS" does his thing and the Strawberry Rifle dba ANDY DALTON of the JUNGLE on the Ohio needs to step it up in a major way!..."A QB Driven League" all the freakin' time as JAMEIS Haters beware you will have your day! #CINvsTB #ItsABucsLife #WhoDeyNation #AQBDrivenLeague #FakeGames2K15Week2 #MNF

Yes I know who you are as you licking your chops to see another #1 Draft Pick fall right on his backside. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Rook QB and #1 Donut-Runner "Famous Jameis" Winston is good and really good as he will take his "Rookie Lumps" but Famous Jameis Haters beware. The Bucs Offense with a healthy "Muscle Hamster" dba Bucs RB Doug Martin and those two ginormous wide outs in Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans will do some special things in 2015.

Asa for the game the Bucs took it right to that Bengals #1 "D" and scored on their 1st possession as Winston led a 8 play 80-yard drive for a 1-yard TD run. It was impressive as was that Bucs "D" flying around and creating turnovers. Bucs RB Doug Martin dba "Muscle Hamster" also put in some work as the Bucs Offense was firing on all cylinders.

The Bengals "D" is better than that as the new addition former Ohio State Buckeyes Star and Packers Backer AJ Hawk joins both Rey Maualuga and Vontaze Burfict. It will start up front as Geno Atkins looks like he is back to his old self and Dre Kirkpatrick quit chirping and cover someone or yourself please! Another 'Bama CB that does absolutely nothing in the "Shield"!  

The Bucs top 2015 Free Agent in former UCLA Star CB Alterraun Verner picked off Bengals QB Andy Dalton for a pick 6 and Dalton had all sorts of issues as did his O-Line. Look its the pre-season and they will figure it out but WR A.J. Green also needs to put forth more effort running down the Wilson pigskin. I said this two years ago he is no Julio Jones so quit comparing the two.

Tampa Bay 2nd QB Mike Glennon can play and he proved that leading the Bucs for a score late in the 2nd frame putting the Bucs up 23-3 at the break. The same for the 2nd half as the the Bengals scored late as former Tampa, Florida Plant H.S. Star by way of the FSU 'Noles and "Bloodline" James Wilder Jr. scored on a 5-yard run. His Dad James Wilder Sr. was a RB Star for the Tampa Buccaneers ran by John McKay in the 80s at the Old Sombrero Stadium dba Tampa Stadium.  

Who Dey Nation stay calm and get QB A.J. McCarron ready to carry the 1's...

INDIANS 1 CUBS 2 F..."KLUBS" had a Perfect Game through 5 as that man KRIS BRYANT strikes again with a Walk-Off Big FLY!..." A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" Cubs win...Cubs win...Cubs win...Holy Cow! #CLEvsCHC #Tribe #CubsNation #MLBInterLeague #MaddonBall

Cubs Nation will look back on this year no matter how it turns out and say we saw the Rookie Evolution of one Kris Bryant. They will also say we saw both Bryant and Cubs other All-Star in First Baseman Anthony Rizzo evolve into the one of the best 1-2 Punch in the Show talking any MLB Line Up.

On this day it was all about the men on the "Bump" as Cleveland Indians RHO and 2014 AL Cy Young Winner Corey Kluber was dealing. "Klubs" had a "Perfecto" going through five with nine strikeouts. The problem was his counterpart Jon "Big Game" Lester had matched "Klubs" with goose eggs in the scoring column through six as well.

It was Lester's Battery Mate David Ross with one out in the bottom half of the 6th that broke the "Perfecto" by "Klubs" as they score remained at zero. Then in the 7th it was Rizzo's run scoring Triple that broke open a scoreless affair in the 7th as the North Siders led 1-0 after seven. "Kulbs" was done in the 8th and on the hook for the loss only.

Lester took the "Bump" in the 9th with a 1-0 lead only to hit lead-off hitter Ryan Raburn. Then with one out Francisco Lindor goes single moving the runner to 2nd. Then with two outs and Cubs Nation on their feet Lester gives up the game-tying RBI single off the Ash, Maple. or Bamboo of Carlos Santana...ties game at 1-1. Lester was then lifted in the 9th with two out by Hector Rondon as he gets a frame-ending  ground out.

Tribe Reliever Zach McCallister gets both Chris Coghlan and Rizzo to strike out only to give up the walk-ff Bomb from Kris Bryant with two outs and K.B. hit the first Rawlings Stitched-One he saw to right field and the Cubs win...Cubs win...Cubs win...Holy Cow!

Chicago moves to 72-51 as they head west for six with the Gigantes and Dodgers. The "Tribe" falls to 58-66 as "Klubs" and Lester get No-Decisions!

BENGALS @ BUCCANEERS as the final game in NFL WEEK 2 of "FAKE GAMES" 2K15 goes MONDAY Night Football!...The Strawberry Rifle in WHO DEY's ANDY DALTON vs #ItsABucsLife "Famous JAMEIS" WINSTON as we get two defenses that "FLY" to the Wilson Pigskin past the Whistle!..."A QB Driven League" as we hit Prime Time MONDAY NIGHT at Raymond James! #CINvsTB #WhoDey #FireTheCannons #MNF #FakeGames2K15

As we have the final game of NFL Week 2 in the pre-season we get an interesting match up talking QBs and defenses. The Cincinnati Bengals led by QB Andy Dalton faces the 2K15 NFL Draft's #1 overall pick in QB Jameis Winston. They both will be facing two defenses that will go after anything moving on all levels as we go prime time at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa!

What to look for in #CINvsTB...

Bengals 2nd QB A.J. McCarron who is lurking behind the "Strawberry Rifle' Andy Dalton how will he pay?

The Bucs Run Game with the "Muscle Hamster" Doug Martin back in action what will we get and who will be the #2 RB on the Bucs Depth Chart...Charles Sims or Bobby Rainey?

The Bengals Front as DT Geno Atkins looked really good in Game 1 as he looks to be in full strength...

Bucs 2K15 Free Agent Pick Up Henry Melton from the Cowboys as he reunited with Lovie Smith and now can he light a fire as he played well vs SKOL in Week 1...

Who TE Tyler Eifert is all of that and which #3 WR will stand up in Week 2 for Who Dey...Brandon Tate or Marvin Jones?

Bucs went heavy Free Agency to rebuild that Secondary as both Safeties are long gone in Mark Barron and Dashon Goldson. What major pick up will make the most noise Safeties Major Wright or Chris Conte (Bears) Chris McDougal (Chiefs) or DJ Swearinger (Texans) as Wright and McDougal are the Starters on the current depth chart?

Who Dey 2K15 #2 Pick LT Jake Fisher what will he look like versus a fast athletic "D"?

Bucs 2nd wave QB Mike Glennon need to be ready as the Rook Winston will have a few ups and downs like all Rook QBs...Glennon needs to move the 2's right down the field and look effective in doing so!

Bucs 2K15 #2 overall LT Donovan Smith of Penn State will be tested versus Who Dey's Carlos will he fare?

Winston will be tested arguably against the #2 overall Secondary talking Depth as well in the Bengals with Play makers all over the place...
