I’m not writing this as a reaction to the Red Sox stinking it up to start the season. I could honestly care less about a 2-6 start to their 162 game season. But from Mookie’s perspective, why would you want to stay? Continue reading “I Wouldn’t Blame Mookie if he left”
As a Celtics fan, I think Brad Stevens is a great leader (even if this season has been a bit less than ideal at times). Ever since the Celtics rebuild began to take positive strides – coinciding around the last presidential election cycle – fans began to joke about Brad running for president (as well as other coaches such as Gregg Popovich and Steve Kerr). Obviously, Brad isn’t looking to run for office anytime soon.
However, as candidates are throwing their hat in the ring for the 2020 presidential election, he has an uncanny look-alike looking to become the next leader of the United States. Continue reading “Brad Stevens 2020?”
Talking trash has been around for ages. In sports, it’s only natural to talk the talk. But wow, does Sean Payton think he’s a player or something? The nerve of this man to call out the recent coaching hires. WOW.
The age old question of does Belichick or Brady carry the Patriots will live in forever. To be fair, Belichick did get the Patriots to 11-5 with Matt Cassel. But Payton? What’s he done without Brees? What’s he accomplished lately other than chocking? Continue reading “Sean Payton’s Trash Talking… Again”
Just 9 days after Chris Sale signed an extension with the Red Sox, shortstop Xander Bogaerts has agreed to terms on a new deal as well.
The extension, which starts in 2020, will be worth $120 million over 6 seasons. Continue reading “More Xander Bogaerts”

We have officially entered baseball season (last week did not count), and we’ve got some early season results. The Dodgers broke the record for the most Opening Day home runs (8), Jacob deGrom had a great first start, which continued an MLB-record streak of starts (30) in which he has allowed 3 or fewer runs, oh, and Bryce Harper has ALREADY been boo’d in Philly. In the basketball world, we saw Devin Booker score 50+ points in back-to-back games, Lance Stephenson with a great crossover (yeah yeah, he stepped on Jeff Green’s shoe), and Jeremy Lamb hit the craziest buzzer-beater of all-time. In playoff news, 5 playoff spots have been clinched in the East (MIL, TOR, PHI, IND, BOS), and 6 have been clinched in the West (GS, DEN, POR, HOU, UTA, LAC); with the Sacramento Kings 6.5 GB from the 8th seed, the two remaining teams in the West who are in the playoff picture (UTA, OKC, SA) are all but guaranteed to make the postseason. In the East, Brooklyn, Detroit, Miami, Orlando, and Charlotte are battling for seeds 6-8 (2.5 games separate these teams).
Alright, enough playoff talk, lets talk about the games that ARE happening!
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”
