Panthers 3, Sabres 0 #PleaseMakeItStop

April 9, 2017By Patrick Moran

The Buffalo Sabres wrap up the regular season Sunday in Tampa Bay… Thank God. You can spin it anyway you want but the Sabres went through the motions in Miami Saturday and got exactly what they deserved, a 3-0 shutout loss to the Florida Panthers.  If you’re a fan of the never-ending tank the result’s … Read More

Orioles 5, Yanks 4 #LosingGameAndSanchez

April 8, 2017By Patrick Moran

It’s getting ugly rather quickly, folks. The New York Yankees are developing a knack for blowing leads.  For a second consecutive game in Baltimore the Yanks got up comfortably early, saw the gap close and ultimately blew the lead (and game) in the seventh inning.  This time it was a 4-1 margin that went up … Read More

The Yankees blew a 5-1 lead in Camden Yards Friday night in falling to the Orioles, 6-5 and have now lost three of their first four to open the season. Home runs by Matt Holiday and Gary Sanchez staked the Yanks out to a four run lead going into the bottom of the fifth, but … Read More

Let’s Countdown The Best 100 Songs Of The 80s

April 6, 2017By Patrick Moran

I’m rather obsessed with 80s music and unapologetic about it.  If we’re at the club and you hear Debbie Gibson’s “Only in my Dreams” on the jukebox, look no further when seeking the perpetrator. It was my dollar that paid for 3 minutes and 44 seconds of awesomeness. You’re welcome. I’ll take Sergio Mendes over … Read More

Rays 4, Yanks 1 #PinedaStinksUpTheTrop

April 6, 2017By Patrick Moran

One series hardly makes a season but man, the Yankees starting pitching is already cause for concern, imploding for a second time in three games as the Bombers lost in Tampa Wednesday night, 4-1 and lose two of three to open 2017. Sandwiched between C.C. Sabathia’s shutout gem Tuesday were blunders by Marshio Tanaka and Michael Pineda, who’ve … Read More

Welcome To MoranAlytics

April 5, 2017By Patrick Moran

“Moran-Alytics” is my personal blog that sounds comparable but has zero correlation to actual analytics. Enthusiasts hail it a poor man’s passion project while detractors aren’t nearly as generous. Nonetheless, here you’ll find musings on things I enjoy scribing most: Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, New York Yankees, the 1980s, Music, Movies, Television and my favorite … Read More
