Liverpool Is 1 Game Away from Champions League Semi-Finals

Liverpool is set to face-off against Man City in the second leg of their Champions League Quarter-Finals matchup at 2:45 PM, ET. The Reds won their opening match against City 3-0 at Anfield and baring a historic collapse, they’ll cruise into the Semis. Now, call me a pessimist, but this would be such a Liverpool move to mess this up.

Both Liverpool and Man City are known for their ferocious attacks, but each team has a health concern up top. Sergio Aguero was forced to miss the first leg of the competition and Mo Salah left the same game in the second half. While I don’t necessarily think Aguero is City’s best player, he does rank first on the team in goals scored in the Premier League with 21. Salah, on the other hand, is without a doubt the Reds’ best player and is almost a shoo-in at this point for Premier League Player of the Year. If I had to guess the two players’ availabilities, I believe that Aguero will start and that Salah will be available on the bench if needed.

Another thing that both teams benefit from is their top-flight managers, Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola. Klopp and Pep are widely regarded as two of the best managers in the world and these two fiery tacticians have breathed new life into these historic squads.

So, how do all these things add up to Liverpool potentially blowing this? First, Man City benefits from playing at home in the Ethiad. Secondly, just in the Premier League, Man City has won by 3+ goals eleven times, including a home defeat of Liverpool by 5-0 earlier in the season. And lastly, Liverpool’s defense is suspect at best. Since they’ve acquired Virgil Van Dijk and made Loris Karius their starting goalkeeper, they’ve been infinitely better, but there are still holes in their back line.

Ultimately, I believe that Liverpool will advance to the next round, but it’ll be close, and there will be plenty of goals. Life as a Reds’ supporter is going to be a stressful one today.

My prediction:

Man City 3 – 2 Liverpool

Liverpool advances 5 – 2 on aggregate

“Put $5 On It”: The Masters

Like every degenerate group of friends who enjoy sports, the QuarterMasters love to gamble. We all play Draft Kings. We would also love to have a bookie and make big bets, but we aren’t ballin’ like that yet, and the one of us that does make a little bit of money is saving for a wedding. (Congrats, Cannon) So how do we get past this? Small bets between ourselves, of course. We all think that we know more about sports and pretty much everything else in life than the other, so every week we have a series of $5 bets. Most of the time, it’s just between two of us, but every now and then, we get into a pool. It’s a magical affair. So why not blog about it?

For the inaugural “Put $5 On It” blog, we all chose two golfers for the masters. One favorite (<60/1 odds to win) and one underdog (>60/1 odds to win). Whosever two golfers have the highest average finish wins the pot. Simple enough, right? Let’s get to who chose who.

 

TyGuy:

Jordan Speith: Day 1 (-6)                Day 2 (+2)              Day 3 (-1)           Day 4 (-8)                 Overall (-13)

Ian Poulter: Day 1 (+2)                    Day 2 (+3)              Day 3 (+2)         Day 4 (-3)                  Overall (+4)

 

TreBabs:

Rickie Fowler: Day 1 (-2)                Day 2 (E)                Day 3 (-7)            Day 4 (-5)                  Overall (-14)

Bryson DeChambeau: Day 1 (+2) Day 2 (+2)              Day 3 (E)             Day 4 (-1)                  Overall (+3)

 

Rongy:

Hideki Matsuyama: Day 1 (+1)     Day 2 (-1)                Day 3 (E)             Day 4 (-3)                  Overall (-3)

Kevin Kisner: Day 1: (E)                 Day 2 (+3)              Day 3 (-3)            Day 4 (E)                   Overall (E)

 

The Cannon:

Justin Thomas: Day 1 (+2)            Day 2 (-5)                Day 3 (-2)           Day 4 (+1)                   Overall (-4)

Kevin Chappel: Day 1 (+5)             Day 2 (+4)              Day 3 (CUT)       Day 4 (CUT)               Overall (+9)

 

As you can clearly see, we aren’t quite as smart as we think, but let’s see how it plays out. I’ll update the leaderboard each day.

It came down to TreBabs vs. TyGuy, but my guy Rickie Fowler came through in the battle of the bros. Winner of the inaugural “Put $5 On It” – TreBabs

Dolphins Acquire Robert Quinn From Rams

It was reported earlier today that the Dolphins are trading a mid-round pick and swapping late round draft picks to acquire DE Robert Quinn from the Los Angeles Rams.

Just when I began to lose faith in my Dolphins, they reel me back in. After Tannehill got injured in the preseason last year, it was a pretty wild ride in Miami. We automatically signed Jay Cutler to be a $10 million joke. He was a funny joke, we had some good times, but he was still a joke…and an expensive one. Then, they traded Jay Ajayi for a fourth-round draft pick. I was LIVID.

See:

BREAKING: Jay Ajayi To The Eagles

So that happened and we missed the playoffs. Always next year, right? Hard maybe.

My hope started to come back around the time the Dolphins Franchise-Tagged Jarvis Landry a couple of weeks ago, because no matter what happens with that, at least they aren’t letting him walk. And then, this. We not only have Cameron Wake,  we not only have Ndamukong Suh, but not we also have ROBERT QUINN!

Obviously, Adam Gase’s philosophy (besides hiring all of his boys from previous teams) is that if the opposing quarterback dies every week, they can’t beat us. I LOVE IT.

Two important items to note:

https://mobile.twitter.com/QMS_TreBabs/status/969700978684518401

This D-Line trio might actually end Tom Brady’s career. You heard it here first!!

Secondly, getting Robert Quinn for what seems like a 4th-rounder essentially means that they turned Jay Ajayi into Robert Quinn. I can get behind that. I realize that we took on a pretty good sized contract in the process, but we are also not having to pay Landry now. (Hopefully we get good compensation.)

All we need now is to draft the next great QB and let ol’ TanneTHRILL mold them and we will be set.

P.S. I have NO idea which QB we should draft…pretty much anyone besides Darold.

P.S.S. While we are at it, let’s sign Johnny Football to the practice squad. Why? Because it’s #COMEBACKSZN

PHINS UP!

 

Podcasts Are Coming!

In the fast paced society that we live in today, it’s hard to sit down and truly appreciate an article. Sports fans today prefer TV Shows or Radio, but the hot new media outlet on the market is podcasting. With podcasts, you can listen to your favorite personalities while you finish homework or commute to work, or during any other phase of your life.

Here at QuarterMaster Sports, we believe in adapting to best fit our fans, so starting next week we will be offering three new podcasts.

The Parley

Every Monday will feature “The Parley,” which includes all four of the QMS crew talking about the hot sports topics of the week. This podcast is sure to have no shortage of arguments and disagreements as Rongy, TyGuy, TreBabs, and The Cannon sort out who knows best.

That’s Your Opinion

Every Thursday will feature Rongy & The Cannon’s podcast, “That’s Your Opinion.” This will be a fast paced sports podcast that is sure to include the two’s specialty of NCAA Basketball as March Madness draws nearer.

Going Overboard

Finally, every Friday will feature TreBabs & TyGuy’s podcast, “Going Overboard.” This podcast will feature sports topics as well, but will also have real life debates, fantasy talk, and more. “Going Overboard” will be the perfect segue into the weekend as you wind down from work or school.

To begin with, all of our podcasts will be featured on SoundCloud. As always, you can find all of our content on our website and official Twitter page.

More information will be rolling out over the next week, but we hope that you come join us in our podcasting adventures!

Tulo Tricks Photographer Into Thinking He’s A Pitcher

Baseball is officially BACK!

Pitchers and Catchers reported to Spring Training last week, which gave a slight quench of the baseball thirst that has been mounting since the season ended last year. The offseason beforehand was even more entertaining than years past (mostly aided by my Marlins’ firesale.) But now, the full rosters have reported to their Arizona and Florida homes of the next month and BASEBALL IS BACK.

Admittedly, Baseball is not the most entertaining sport to the naked eye. The game moves slowly at times and there isn’t the instant gratification that is present in the nation’s other sports, such as Basketball, Football, and Hockey. Personally, I believe that Baseball is the best game of all, followed closely by Soccer. But then again, I may just be a boring old soul. To others, however, who don’t understand the inner workings of the world’s most in-depth mental game, Baseball relies on two things to reach the common fan…superstitions and shenanigans, which brings us to the title.

Tulo, the Comedian.

Yesterday, while taking Toronto Blue Jays team pictures, Troy Tulowitzki tricked the team photographer into thinking that he was a pitcher. “Why is this so funny,” you might ask? Well, first of all, Tulo is a Shortstop and has been his whole career. I understand that it’s Spring Training, which means young new players, so the photographer wouldn’t know their position, but come on…this is Tulo. Also, apparently the photographer assumed that he was a pitcher. It wasn’t like Tulo initiated the prank, he just saw an opening and took it.

Tulo is 6’3″ and weighs about 205 lbs, which doesn’t scream pitcher. Most pitchers are a little taller and lankier. It’s not the rule, but Tulo’s body type doesn’t scream pitcher, either. He also wears #2, which unless I’m missing someone, isn’t worn by any pitcher in the MLB. There’s only one player off of the top of my head that breaks both of these pitching stereotypes, and it’s Tulo’s teammate, Marcus Stroman, who’s only 5’9″ and wears #6.

Regardless of what the photographer is thinking here, its hilarious stuff, and the perfect way to get back into the lightheartedness of Spring Training.

Speaking of lightheartedness, here’s the best MLB Gif of all time:

Welcome back, Baseball. And, as always, RIP Jose.
