Working for Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, my posts here on Life’s A Ball are minimal, but my writing is not. As a Web Producer I am editing our expert reporters’ work for each Bay Area team and putting together the total package for the website. But, I am also writing Staff Reports without a byline. At the beginning of each month I will post all of the previous month’s Staff Reports that I wrote for CSN Bay Area for you to look back at. Below is my work from the month of Feb., 2016:
With the fifth pick of the 2008 MLB Draft, the San Francisco Giants selected catcher Buster Posey out of Florida State University.
Three World Series rings, a National League MVP award, three All-Star Game appearances and a NL Rookie of the Year award later, Posey has cemented himself as one of the best players in the game and perhaps the top player of the 2008 draft. 32 picks later, the Giants drafted an infielder they hoped would also be a big factor in bringing championships to San Francisco.
With millions of viewers watching the Broncos and Panthers duke it out in Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, one year removed from his own Super Bowl anguish, found a way to catch the attention of football fans without even playing.
After the Warriors beat the Thunder Saturday night, 116-108, Steph Curry could finally put his focus on Super Bowl 50 and his Carolina Panthers.
The Arizona Diamondbacks roster overhaul has extended by bolstering their bullpen.
Arizona has agreed to a two-year deal with reliever Tyler Clippard.
The Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame is a collection of some of the greatest athletes who not only put their stamp on the local area, but nationally as well.
This year’s class, which will be enshrined on May 16 at the Westin St. Francis Hotel, is no different. Former Giants slugging second baseman Jeff Kent and sharp-shooter Mitch Richmond, who excelled on both the Warriors and Kings, headline the group.
The Warriors are off to the best start in NBA history with a 48-4 record at the All-Star break as they aim to defend their crown.
Steph Curry has been the leader for the champs, averaging a league-high 29.8 points per game this season. On Sunday, Curry has another title to defend.
The Warriors are represented by three players — Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green — at the 2016 All-Star Game in Toronto. And, the reigning NBA champions have been the talk of the town north of the border.
Klay Thompson is often seen as the less touted shooter in the Warriors’ backcourt with Stephen Curry.
But on Saturday, Thompson took down Curry in the 3-Point Contest one day after being starstruck during his second All-Star Weekend.
And who made Thompson stop in his tracks? None other than Michael Jordan.
After years of contemplation, Cuban outfielder Alexei Bell finally defected earlier this year from the country in pursuit of playing for a MLB club.
Barry Bonds spent 22 years playing major league baseball for the Giants and Pirates, where he smashed the all-time record of 762 home runs.
His numbers sit at the top of many offensive lists in baseball history. Starting Friday, he’s hoping to improve an offense in a different way at 51 years old.
The Warriors, with a NBA-best record of 48-4, decided to stand pat at the trade deadline.
If they did make a move, the thought was Golden State could target a big man to backup center Andrew Bogut. Though the deadline passed, could the Warriors still make a move and add more size?
If you can’t beat them, join them. Well, that’s not exactly the case with Tim Lincecum, but would be with the San Diego Padres if they decide to sign the free agent pitcher.
As the NFL’s offseason ramps up to key dates, San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly continues to be dissected.
Josh Jackson’s high school basketball experience isn’t like most.
Instead of playing with his hometown friends, Jackson and his mother decided it would be best for him to move from Detroit, Mich. to Napa to further his education and basketball career.
John Axford is new to the Oakland A’s bullpen, but he’s no stranger to the Oscars.
Warriors teammates Steph Curry and Andre Iguodala can already bond over what most teammates never can: MVP trophies. Curry took home the 2014-15 regular season MVP while Iguodala was named the NBA Finals MVP last season.
