State of the Boston Celtics

Prior to the suspension of the NBA, the Boston Celtics were 43-21, good for 3rd in the Eastern Conference.

They were playing with an ease and chemistry that they desperately lacked a year ago, which can be attributed to the departure of players like Kyrie Irving, Al Horford, Marcus Morris and Terry Rozier.

Now? Kemba Walker has replaced Kyrie, and Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have stepped up. Gordon Hayward looks like the player Boston signed from Utah, albeit lower in the pecking order. Marcus Smart has continued to make winning plays, and Daniel Theis has stepped in admirably into the starting lineup, filling in the hole that Horford left behind.

The rest of the roster? Well, as has been seen during the team’s first 4 games in The Bubble, it’s a work in progress.

With 4 games remaining before the playoffs begin, the Celtics are in position to secure the 3rd seed in the East, but can they make a deep run?

Lets explore. Continue reading “State of the Boston Celtics”

State of the Boston Red Sox

Baseball was the first professional sport to return in an official capacity in the United States just two weeks ago, and it’s been a whirlwind.

The Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals have had several members of their organization test positive for COVID-19, which has led to the teams missing games.  This has had a ripple effect, as St. Louis had to postpone their series against the Milwaukee Brewers last weekend, while the Marlins were not able to play the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals last week. The Phildelphia Phillies missed a week due to playing Miami to start the season, while the Yankees had to re-adjust their schedule. Continue reading “State of the Boston Red Sox”

Which Boston Sports Team will be the First to win a Championship this Decade?

As most of you already know, Boston has been the hub of sports for the past two decades, winning 12 championships in the process. From the Patriots dynasty (still going), to the Red Sox randomness of great seasons, to the Bruins having two more shots at the Cup, and the Celtics still trying to get banner 18 for the first time since 2008, the city is certainly trying to add more. All four teams have a decent to really good chance at winning one or a few during this new decade, which begs the question, who’s most likely to hold a trophy first this decade?

I’ll be answering this by making a ranking from worst chance to best chance. Hope you’ll enjoy and let me know what you think of my list! Continue reading “Which Boston Sports Team will be the First to win a Championship this Decade?”

Celtics Fans: R-E-L-A-X

Opening Night.

Celtics fans have been waiting for this game since Kyrie Irving took a dump on their Finals hopes last postseason. A fresh start, less mouths to feed, and we get a better look at the young core of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

Last night was a blur.

Foul after foul, missed shot after missed shot. What’s worse: losing 107-93, being out rebounded 41-62 or missing 14 free throws? Because the Celtics did both and shot themselves in the foot.

But you know what? This is the first game of the season.

81 games left to fix whatever is going on… and for Boston, it’s not as bad as you think. Continue reading “Celtics Fans: R-E-L-A-X”

Mets suck so bad the Manager Cant help but be a Jerk

The Mets are always going to be losers. Let’s make that clear. And this situation doesn’t help their cause at all.

Yes, the sports media, especially in New York, is the worst. You think Boston is bad? New York has some of the best/worst reporters in the country so I understand when athletes and coaches there are hesitant to go there. Continue reading “Mets suck so bad the Manager Cant help but be a Jerk”
