COMMENTARY | One thing was pointed out to me by friends and readers after I posted what was meant to be one final farewell to FIFA 13 last week: There is actually a lot about that particular title that I don't enjoy. Perhaps the most frustrating thing about the issues that were either brought up during discussions with fellow gamers or that just came to mind is that they are, in theory, all easy to remedy. While none of the problems mentioned below have ever kept me from playing the current version of the game, eliminating them from FIFA 14 would make for a better overall experience.

COMMENTARY | So far in 2013, it has been the Matt Harvey show. And for good reason. Harvey has posted an electric 2.04 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and 5.10 K/BB over 97 innings, and is the sole reason for fans to watch an otherwise dismal team. Given the 24 year-old's dominant four-pitch arsenal, impeccable work ethic, and unrelenting determination, it's conceivable Matt Harvey will be the Mets' ace for the better part of the next decade.

COMMENTARY | On April 28, 2013, the Minnesota Twins' Justin Morneau hit a home run in the sixth inning against the Texas Rangers' Alexi Ogando.

COMMENTARY | If someone were to tell Tyrann Mathieu last September he would be an opening-day starter for an NFL defense in 2013, even he may have laughed it off as a cajoling fan trying to earn a follow on Twitter or some form of shout-out from the former Louisiana State star.

COMMENTARY | Criticize a leader's inexperience all you want, but the end-results are what will matter, and this holds true for NFL signal callers. Teams are increasingly willing to push unseasoned quarterbacks into the frying pan, although the science of unearthing a star is still a crapshoot, if the current league landscape is any inclination.

COMMENTARY | The common wisdom supposed that the Los Angeles Angels redressed an obvious defect in their batting order during the winter by signing free agent Josh Hamilton for five years at $125 million, finally adding a pure left-handed hitter to their arsenal.
