Greeley - World Series 2017.2

Sports writer Tom Verducci is looking to Milwaukee to take it all. He points out that their winning streak (eight in a row) is based on the best defensive team in the league is based on a trifecta of “power and athleticism, a balance of position players to combat matchup bullpens, and a deep bullpen with swing-and-miss stuff.” He predicts that Christian Yelich will be the World Series MVP and declares that the Brewers are clearly adept at the “modern game” of rotating starting pitchers twice around the lineup, and then keeping the ball out of play with a parade of relievers.

Emma Baccellieri of Sports Illustrated is banking on the Yankees over the Dodgers. While Baccellieri cites the Yankees’ lacked the ability to take the American League East, their “superior bullpen gives them a shot to beat the Red Sox in the ALDS, and from there, they have everything necessary to go all the way.” With their deep roster, the Yankees can outslug anyone, and their relief corps led strikeouts across the league. Injuries slowed them down in the second half of the regular season, but they’re now at just about full strength, giving them a chance to take their 28th World Series title.

Sports writer Stephanie Apstein is calling the Dodgers over the Indians. She sites the unusual year had by the Dodgers. They weren’t a sure thing until the last week of the season but, according to Apstein, their chances are good considering their roster includes many of the same great players on last year’s team, making it a possibility that they could pull off this year what they were unable to do last year. Apstein sited, No one can match the upside of the Dodgers’ top two starters, Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler, and if closer Kanley Jansen can steady the bullpen, the offense should be able to do enough.”

A replay of the 2017 World Series is in play according to Jon Taylor of Sports Illustrated. He’s predicting the Astros will come out on top over the Brewers. This is based on the fact that the Astros have been playing just as well as they did during last year’s regular season. “Houston’s Pythagorean record—based off runs scored and run allowed—was 109–53, with a staggering run differential of +265.” In addition to that, their lineup is formidable and the rotation is better than most teams. Taylor goes so far as to predict a “dynasty in the making.”

Get Your Motor Running to Greeley Avenue Bar for NASCAR

The roar of an engine. The squeal of a tire. The thrill of high-octane competition. If these things get your heart pumping then you’ll want to come out to Greeley Avenue Bar and Grill for televised NASCAR racing throughout the month of July.

Race to the finish

We’ve got the best races playing and you can follow along with your favorite drivers as they take to the track and fight to become the frontrunner. Here are a few to watch in the 2018 racing season and NASCAR experts’ picks to go all the way.

 

Greeley - Nascar_Palmount45

NASCAR’s Zack Albert is looking at Brad Keselowski at the Daytona 500.“With a strong restrictor-plate acumen, all the variables set to finally align for the No. 2 crew at the Great American Race.”

Albert’s boldest prediction is picking the five first-time winners. “Chase Elliott is expected to finally break through, but add Alex Bowman, William Byron, Erik Jones and Daniel Suarez to that list.” Albert believes Kyle Busch will go all the way, based on his racing accomplishments over the last year.

Joey Logano is NASCAR’s Jessica Ruffin’s pick for the Daytona 500. “The Fords have proven to be the cars to beat in the long run at Daytona, and Team Penske’s Logano has the plate prowess to be patient when he needs to be (and aggressive when coming to the checkered).”

Ruffin’s long-stretch prediction is a surprise playoff qualifier. “William Byron’s rise through the ranks has been quick, but successful. He won multiple races in his Xfinity and Truck rookie seasons, so look for strong, consistent runs — if not a win — for the young driver this year.” Ruffin agrees with Zach Albert and pegs Kyle Busch to go all the way

Greeley - Restaurant Front

Throughout the summer, racing fans are filling the stadiums of the country’s best race tracks. When you make Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill your NASCAR “pit box” you’ll be sitting right at the finish line when the checkered flag is waved!
