Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 3/7/17

MLB previews continue today with a look at the 2017 Miami Marlins. Don Mattingly has his work cut out this season. The skipper of the Marlins is going to have to find a way to overcome the incredibly devastating loss of Jose Fernandez. The remarkably talented pitcher was the face of the franchise on and off the field. Time has passed since his tragic ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Monday 3/6/17

I'll be previewing the NL Eastern Division this week, and first up is the 2017 Atlanta Braves. Not much was expected from the 2016 Braves. Not much resulted if you're going just by the standings. Atlanta ended up finishing dead last in the East and won only 68 games. But a look beyond those numbers revealed plenty of reason for optimism moving ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 3/5/17

2017 MLB previews resume tomorrow, with the NL East next up on the docket. Just a quick Saturday recap and the Sunday free play in today's blog. My Saturday started off in lousy fashion, but the evening provided a very nice recovery and I ended the day at +1.4. This was my last really deep card in college basketball, as I intend to be extremely selective ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 3/4/17

Baseball previews will return on Monday as the NL East breakdown gets underway. No commentary for the next couple days as my focus will be mostly on the finish of the college basketball regular season plus the already ongoing conference tournaments. So just the daily free plays over the next two days. Friday's comp on the Spurs didn't work out, although ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 3/3/17

Today's MLB preview will be on the Toronto Blue Jays to finish off the AL East rundowns. Things have changed over the last couple of days as far as Toronto's chances of winning the division are concerned. The Red Sox were substantial favorites, but Boston appears to have taken a big spring training hit with the injury to David Price. That could open ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 3/2/17

Three down, 27 to go on the 2017 MLB team previews. I'll stay in the AL East today with a look at the Tampa Bay Rays. Life isn't easy for the Rays. They simply don't have the dollars to spend as do their AL East brethren. Moreover, they often end up feeling like visitors in their own ballpark as there are far too many nights when there are more fans ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 3/1/17

Baseball previews continue today with a rundown on the New York Yankees. These aren't exactly the best of times for the game's most storied franchise. The Yankees are in what for them is an ultra-rare rebuilding phase. Truth be told, I really like some of the moves this team has made to finally rebuild what was a close to barren farm system. As a Red Sox ... More
