LAWRENCE: WHAT DOES THE NFL HAVE AGAINST THE OAKLAND RAIDERS ANYWAY?

JULY 23,2019–I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles… In case you missed it, the Oakland Raiders will be traveling a total of 32,023 miles in 2019, which is more than the Bills, Giants and Jets will travel combined (23,552). The Raiders are the only team in the NFL this year that will travel more than 30,000 miles, which is probably going to come as horrible news to head coach Jon Gruden, who admitted last year that he gets claustrophobic in planes and has been known to suffer from vertigo after periods of extensive traveling. Not only do they fly the most miles in 2019, but they were also given one of the most brutal travel stretches in the history of the NFL. After playing in Oakland in Week 2, the Raiders won’t return home until Week 8, which means they have to go 49 days without playing at their home stadium. During that six-week stretch away from Oakland, the Raiders will travel an estimated 21,347 miles. They’ll be traveling more during that 49-day period than 22 NFL teams will travel for the entire season. On the flip side, the NY Jets, who won’t be leaving the Eastern Time Zone a single time this year. The Jets are scheduled to travel 6,730 miles in 2019, which makes them the only team in the NFL that will travel less than 8,000 miles on the season. See each teams travel miles here.

Grinding Out The Profits

For whatever reason the Toronto Blue Jays refuse to remove Aaron Sanchez from the starting lineup. Hey, that’s okay with us, given his 0-11 team-start mark with an 8.65 ERA in his last eleven games. With Cleveland’s Trevor Bauer 7-1 team-start mark and a 2.85 ERA in his last eight games, you know the deal.
