Ovechkin has 44 goals, but a -23 +/- rating, lol. I have him on my fantasy hockey team and always laugh at that. His goals and SOG are so high though that he is still the #2 ranked fantasy player in standard roto leagues....

Neither Khan nor Maidana would threaten Mayweather, so it really doesn't matter which one he chose. Maidana's style is made for Floyd and, as mentioned earlier in this thread, Maidana won't win a second of the fight unless Floyd chooses to take rounds off by laying on the ropes.
Khan is the super...

No way he keeps his BABIP that high though. A lot of luck is involved for it to be that high. He may not be as bad as Apr - May, but regression is coming based on that stat alone balancing out over the course of a full season. I believe the average BABIP for all of MLB hitters in 2013 was .295ish (c...

Thanks for the link, BilJ. Was about to say that I was at Nicholls when Daye was there and pretty sure he and most of his coaching staff were fired because of academic fraud with a bunch of the football players.
