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?
Thank God I’m just a bandwagon Bruins fan because that list would have devastated me! Listen, I love sports as much as the next guy but hockey isn’t for me. Maybe next season that’ll change and I’ll understand the game more. But as of now, what should be a kick in the nuts 4-1 loss in a Game 7 feels like a love tap for now.
In this post, I’ll be joined by fellow writer Nick. We’ll be discussing things to look forward to (unless your a Red Sox fan) this summer. Yes, Boston just won 2 championships, but the grind doesn’t stop and neither do we! Let’s get this bad bitch rolling.

Dustin Pedroia is a player forever etched in Red Sox history. Winning championships in 2007, 2013, and 2018 is a nice resume. Especially when he played big parts in his first two.
Nick covered his accolades in his 2018 post about the 2nd baseman’s future with the team. I’m not going to argue that. From what I read, Cora and the other players appreciate his leadership in the clubhouse. I’m not doubting that. He’s been there longer than anyone, so if anyone deserves loyalty, it would be the guy who embodies a good Red Sox player (Although I am skeptical after that Machado incident). But, is his left knee going to get in the way of him being a regular almost everyday player? Continue reading “Will Pedrioa’s Knee Hold up?”
The Celtics have been under the microscope in the East ever since they emerged as potential contenders again under Brad Stevens. They were obviously in a rebuilding stage when the Celtics parted ways with long time coach Doc Rivers, who saw only one championship with them in 2008. It did not come as a surprise when Brad Stevens, the former Butler head coach that brought the team to their first Final Four in school history, went 25-57 in his first year. The actual surprise was the Celtics never missing the playoffs every season after that.Brad Stevens is remarkable at utilizing the players he has and setting them up to succeed through well-crafted play calling. As his roster grew each year with more and more talent, he was able to improve their playoff success. With the All-Star break over and the playoff push in full effect, I wanted to see how the Celtics have fared in the past five years during this time; the pattern is surprising.Continue reading “Celtics Post All-Star Break History”
