Week 2 of everyone’s new favorite series: Who to Watch. This week, our focus is over the upcoming week of November 9 through November 15. Week 10 of the NFL season, and over 10% into the NBA season, basketball and football is the focus going forward (maybe we’ll do a Winter Classic piece, let us know).
Dez to the Saints makes a whole lotta sense. When your second and third leading receivers behind Michael Thomas (880 yards) are Kamara and Watson, you could always use help. The Saints have a good running game and a balanced offense that could cut you up for 35 point a game (their average) whenever they want. They’re second in the league in scoring, so what do they need Dez for? Continue reading “Dez Bryant to Saints : Hit or Miss?”
Another NFL week is in the books, and for that, another edition of What we Learned! From someone catching their first TD of the season to Nathan Peterman, let’s get the ball rolling! Continue reading “What we Learned Week 9”
After this past postseason, I think I (and many fans) feel comfortable in saying this: Craig Kimbrel should not be re-signed.
After the troubles and mini heart attacks he gave us all in October, I think an alternative is ideal. Costs for this Red Sox team will soon become an issue, and I do not think the contract Kimbrel will warrant on the open market is one the Red Sox can dish out. The Red Sox have over $156 million on the books for nine players on the 25-man roster, and this does not include a bevy of players contractually tied to the team through arbitration-determined salaries (meaning Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., Andrew Benintendi, Xander Bogaerts, Eduardo Rodriguez, etc.)
In addition to Kimbrel, the following 2018 Red Sox are free agents: Nathan Eovaldi, Joe Kelly, Ian Kinsler, Steve Pearce, Drew Pomeranz, Brandon Phillips.
It’s not easy to pay everyone after winning a championship, and some fan favorites will not be back next season. Since I hope Kimbrel is one, lets look at who I think should be considered to replace him.
