Clark’s Corner 10/4

Joe Clark, Sports Editor

I know I said I’d write three Clark’s Corner’s last week after only writing one the week before, but two in a week is the right amount so I stuck with two. There isn’t really enough that happens in a week for three to work. Anyway, let’s get started.

-The Yankees beat the Twins 8-4 Tuesday night in the AL Wild Card game in an entertaining, but long game. With more eyes on the sport than ever in the postseason, the MLB needs to come up with more ways to speed up the game

-Tonight the Diamondbacks and the Rockies face off in the NL Wild Card game. Both teams improved greatly from last season, mostly due to improved rotations. The Diamondbacks are the higher seed, and I expect Zack Greinke and Jon Gray to put on a pitcher’s duel tonight. I think the D’Backs will pull it out though. Prediction: D’Backs: 4 Rockies: 2

-The New York Giants are very unexpectedly 0-4, and it could spell the end of the Eli Manning era in New York. With a strong QB class in the upcoming draft, the Giants could invest in a young signal-caller. If Eli is to be let go this offseason, look the Redskins (provided Kirk Cousins goes elsewhere) or the 49ers to have interest.

-Yesterday the NBA announced changes to its All-Star Game format, eliminating divisions and having two captains pick teams and have both teams play for charity. It’s a much-needed change, and one that will certainly reinvigorate the ASG.

-Congrats to the volleyball team on their win against Canton on Wednesday night

-Good luck to the field hockey team against Canton on Thursday

-With Washington State’s upset of USC last Friday night, expect Luke Falk’s draft stock to rise.
