#sicknotweak Michael Landsberg delivers a hard-hitting message

By: Devon Teeple

Michael Landsberg is one of the most well-known personalities in Canadian broadcasting. He hosted Off The Record on TSN from 1997 to 2015 and over 5,000 episodes of TSN's SportsDesk. Landsberg is also a mental health advocate. He's spoken openly about his battle with depression since 2009 and his website, #sicknotweak is an open forum for those battling depression; a way to help both sufferers and the people who care about them.

I recently had the honour and the privilege to speak with him on about his amazing work in the field of mental health, a subject something that hits very close to home.

Ex-Nat Terrence Engles’ toughest opponent was himself

By: Devon Teeple

Drafted in the 20th round of the 2003 MLB amateur draft out of St. Peter’s High School, Terrence Engles had it all. He spent six years in the minor leagues as a member of the Washington Nationals organization and was fulfilling every kid's’ childhood dream.

Unfortunately, this is not your typical story of a minor league baseball player. Engles wasn’t only battling opponents on the field, but battling an invisible opponent off it.

Out of sight, but not out of mind. Colabello can still hit

By: Devon Teeple

Chris Colabello was the feel good story everyone loves. An unsigned Independent league journeyman relegated to spending his days racking up huge numbers, never got the chance to prove he could hit big league pitching. When he finally did, we loved him for it, until we were hit with a bombshell.

Colabello had his coming out party with the Toronto Blue Jays in 2015. he hit .321 with 15 home runs and 54 RBI and always seemed to get the big hit when they needed it. Unfortunately, one of the Jays most popular folk heroes tested positive for a performing enhancing substance. He was suspended for 80 games and ultimately this led to his free agency.

By: Devon Teeple

With the American Association season under wraps, and the Winnipeg Goldeyes crowned as back to back AA champs, it's always fun to take a look at season ending standouts. This week we’re going focus on three offensive leaders; Shawn Pleffner, Jabari Henry, and Matt Chavez.
