The Stars and Duds of the ALDS

Growing up a Boston sports fan, I can tell you that above all else, nothing is sweeter than beating the New York Yankees.  The pure joy of the Red Sox winning the World Series in 2004 were some of my first memories of sports; I was raised on hating the Yankees

With that in mind, seeing the Sox take the ALDS in the Bronx was SWEET!

Winning the series in 4 games (and both games they played in New York), the Sox proved a lot of people wrong (including yours truly) about if they had the cojones to win a playoff series.  Beating the 100-win Yankees, the team with the third best record in baseball, proved that Boston was legit and up for the challenge.

Their reward?  Facing the 103-win Houston Astros (second best record in the MLB).

We won’t go down that road.  For now, I’m going to highlight the players that stood out to me against the Yankees, and the ones that worried me (and will need to prove themselves). Continue reading “The Stars and Duds of the ALDS”

Brady vs Colts Perspective

Jim Davis / Boston Globe

Ahhhh, Tom Brady taking the field against The Colts is a tale as old as time. From his first start against Peyton Manning to tonight against Andrew Luck, Tom Brady probably knows the Colts just as much as he knows the Patriots. He probably hates them more than anything for Deflategate (I’m not getting into that). But let’s take a shallow dip into Brady vs Colts. Continue reading “Brady vs Colts Perspective”
