Vince Ellis Detroit Free Press Published 4:00 p.m. UTC Jun 13, 2018 It took five seasons for Dwane Casey’s reputation as a defensive mastermind to take hold in Toronto. The Raptors managed only one top-10 defensive rating during the first part of Casey’s tenure as head coach, then they posted consecutive top-five defensive ratings the past two seasons. The better defense played a role in Toronto's franchise-record 59 wins this past season.

Sunday’s show was the genial Frost’s last, as Q107 pursues a corporate plan to expand from its Baby Boomer base towards a more youthful audience. But judging from the reaction of shocked and dismayed listeners, Toronto Mayor John Tory among them, the news was a colossal bummer, man. They took to Twitter en masse, using the … [Read more...] about Toronto radio station Q107’s Psychedelic Sunday signs off, and it’s a bummer for loyal listeners, man
Before this month, it had been 20 years since one of Washington’s four major professional sports teams appeared in a conference final. It has been just as long since one of those teams appeared in a championship series, when the Capitals lost the 1998 Stanley Cup Finals to Detroit in four games.If you believe Washington’s sports curse is over – beaten black and blue by Braden Holtby’s waffle pad, vanquished by Evgeny Kuznetsov’s backhand into the five-hole of history – there are other sports cities (and states) left to cry for.For these cities, which have at least two major professional sports teams, the wait for a championship-round appearance has been at least 15 years. CincinnatiLast title appearance: 1990 World SeriesResult: Reds defeat Athletics in four gamesJose Rijo threw a two-hitter in 8.1 innings, Hal Morris smacked a deep flyball to right field to score a man in the eight inning to put the Reds in front for good in Game 4, and Cincinnati … [Read more...] about Toronto is now the saddest sports city.
