In this edition of “They Should’ve Been a Dynasty,” we explore recent MLB teams that should have won more than they ultimately did.

Remember the rules: I see as a dynasty: a team that has won at least three championships in a 10-year window. It can be a smaller window (i.e. a three-peat), but I think the simplest barometer is winning three championships within a certain window of time, showing that you were the best of your sport, and you showed it repeatedly.

Ranges of time are flexible depending on the eye of the reader, but this is how I view them. Continue reading ““They Should’ve Been a Dynasty” MLB Edition”

What would I name the bowl game at Fenway Park

 

Folks, it’s happening.

Similar to what Yankees Stadium has been doing, Fenway Park will host a college football bowl game starting in 2020.

“The name of the new bowl is not yet known”

Chris Cotillo, MassLive

Now the question is: what do you name it?

For reference, the bowl game held at Yankee Stadium is known as the “Pinstripe Bowl,” a homage to the uniforms of the Bronx Bombers.

One thing is for certain: Dunkin’ Donuts HAS to be the official sponsor of this game. If not, then what are we doing?

Anyway, here are my suggestions, NCAA. Continue reading “What would I name the bowl game at Fenway Park”

Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be conducting a series called “They Should’ve Been a Dynasty,” exploring teams from different sports over the past 15-20 years that I believe should have won more than they did. Continue reading ““They Should’ve Been a Dynasty””

Red Sox Are a Joke Right Now

It’s no secret the Red Sox have been a dumpster fire so far. 17 games into the season and they’re a shitty 6-11. They have the 2nd worst record in the American League. The Orioles have a better record than them. Yes, the Orioles. The team with the worst hitter in baseball.

The Red Sox had a 6-game home stand the past week and only came out with a 3-3 record. Usually this would be about the time a team with THE HIGHEST payroll in baseball would kind of start figuring things out. But that’s not this years Red Sox… so far.

Overreactions from Red Sox Opening Day

Well, that certainly was a kick to the groin. The Red Sox, after going up 2 runs early on, got smacked upside the head by Seattle, losing 4-12. Not the best start, huh?

In just 3 innings of work, Sale gave up 7 runs on 76 pitches. Hector Velázquez didn’t do so hot, giving up 2 runs in just 2 innings. Listen, I’m not a fan of this game either, but there’s 162 games in a MLB season, this isn’t the end of the world! Continue reading “Overreactions from Red Sox Opening Day”
