The 2015 race for the National League Cy Young award seems to be a three-horse race. The three main candidates this season are Jake Arrieta from the Chicago Cubs, Zack Greinke, and Clayton Kershaw, both from the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Miami Dolphins play their final preseason game tomorrow against the Tampa Bay Bucs, but for all intents and purposes, the preseason is over for the team. As most people who follow the sport know, the starters play a minimal amount, if at all, in the final game. As I reflect back upon this preseason and look ahead towards the season to come, I find myself in a relatively unfamiliar position.
Being a fan, you're always hopeful for your team’s chances going into a new season. But being the fan of a poor team, you are usually lying to yourself. Trying to convince yourself that you're seeing things that you're not, trying to deceive yourself into believing that the flaws you're seeing aren't really there at all. This is going to be THE year, right? Right?
Welcome! My name is Chris Spooner. I am an overly-passionate Dolphins fan who has many opinions about his team, and the sports landscape as a whole. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy voicing them.
