Trade Jackie Bradley Jr.

Writers That Cover the Red Sox Writers of the Boston media don’t want to trade Bradley Jr. for Jose Abreu. Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe wrote that Abreu offers more power, while Bradley is more a complete and arguably more valuable player, given his defense and base running. What is with the people that don’t want to trade for power? Bradley is better Okay let’s look at some stats. Abreu has 124 home runs in his career while Bradley only has 57 home runs. Abreu has 410 RBI’s  while Bradley has 233 RBI’s in his career. Trade Jackie...

Will Garoppolo Return to the New England Patriots?

Jimmy Garoppolo Throws a Touchdown Pass in 9ers Debut Jimmy Garoppolo made his San Francisco 49ers debut Sunday, throwing a touchdown pass with time running out in the fourth quarter. The 49ers are starting Garoppolo on Sunday. Jimmy found out Tuesday morning according to my source. It seems like they are holding him until next season and might give him the franchise tag in 2018. I have a source that says Garoppolo is not happy San Francisco won’t pay him. Will Garoppolo Comeback to New England in the Future? My source also said Garoppolo doesn’t know if he would comeback...

Patriots Fans Have Nothing to Worry About During the Last Month of the Season

December Is Right Around the Corner The Patriots begin the final stretch of the regular season next week in Buffalo. They took care of business in Denver, then in Mexico against the Raiders. Yesterday they played the Dolphins for the first time this season, and going in everyone figured it was going to be a blowout. Let’s face it: the AFC blows. Nobody is catching the Patriots. They have the easiest division in football. They have the greatest quarterback of all time on their team and a coaching staff that can make any opponent look bad. Patriots Always Find...

Young Athletes’ Relationships

Young Athletes in Relationships Young athletes who are in their 20’s are very popular sometimes in the public eye. Sometimes girls that are in their late teens crush on a athlete who is in their early 20’s. For example Kobe Bryant was 23 when he met his future wife. She was a senior in high school at the time they met. Yes, he made some bad choices, but they are still married to this day. Even with the cheating scandals on Kobe’s part. Reports said it was cheaper for Kobe to stay married with Vanessa. Mark Sanchez’s Friendship with...

Will Jeter Send Stanton To Red Sox?

Red Sox Stanton Talks Heating Up According to the Miami Herald, the Red Sox Stanton talks are “heating up.” Dombrowski told the Boston Herald he could not comment on any trade talks at this time. Let’s take a look at what the Red Sox may have to give up. They really do need a power hitter, after missing David Ortiz. The question is, who has to go in order to get Stanton? The Red Sox would probably have to send them Jason Groome, Jackie Bradley Jr., and either Devers, or Nunez. Will Andrew Benintendi Stay Or Will He Go?...

Mike Felger Rant

Mike Felger Rant If you listen to 98.5, The Sports Hub, daily like I do, you know they have the highest rated station in Boston. They have great shows, and the 2-6 show in the afternoon has a lot of hot takes. For people that listen or watch Felger and Mazz, you will know they have very strong takes and opinions everyday. They are the most critical show on that station, which is why it’s very popular. When the news came out about Roy Halladay dying in a plane crash, you probably thought what a tragic accident–a player flying...

Alex Cora Excited To Be Back

Manager Alex Cora Is In Boston Alex Cora was introduced yesterday at Fenway Park. My takeaway from that press conference was him saying Boston won’t be a challenge for him. “Boston, for a lot of people, is a challenge. For me, it’s not, I don’t think experience is going to be an obstacle for me. I think I’m prepared.” I think it’s a good look for this team with a lot of young talent. The Red Sox hired Tony Larussa to as a resource for Cora, if needed. Questions remain if Cora was Dave Dombrowski’s choice, or some believe ownership...

Is Belichick Only Thinking Of Now, Not The Future?

In Bill We Trust? Last night, the night before the NFL trade deadline and Halloween, Belichick made a massive trade. The Patriots traded Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ERS, for a 2018 second round pick. With this move, it’s clear the Patriots expect Brady to be the guy at least until his contract is up. I believe Brady will play until he is 45, and retire a Patriot, which means he and Belichick will walk away together. Thus leaving the Patriots with no decent quarterback. I get Garoppolo wanted a chance to play, but why not give him...

The Patriots At The Half Way Point

The Patriots Are 6-2 Going Into The Bye Week We have reached the halfway point in the NFL season. The Patriots are going in to the bye week at 6-2. Yesterday’s win was all about field goals for the Patriots. They couldn’t convert in the red area. Good thing the Chargers are stupid, if it had been a better team, they could have lost. Bill Belichick was asked about the offense not scoring and the defense giving up big plays. He said, “Yeah, we’re obviously not doing a very good job in that area and that’s something we have...

Alex Cora Named Next Red Sox Manager

After the season ends for the Houston Astros, the Boston Red Sox will get their new manager in Alex Cora.  Cora was the front runner all along for Dave Dombrowski and the Red Sox. Ken Rosenthal for Fox Sports reported the three-year deal that Cora will accept once the Astros are done. This is a great move for the Red Sox.  Dave Dombrowski can get his guy who he thinks is right for the job.  Cora also brings that young vibe to the clubhouse which will help this young team. Cora played infield positions for the Red Sox  for...

What’s Wrong With The Patriots?

The Patriots Are 4-2 The New England Patriots are 4-2 and atop the AFC East. But they don’t play like a Super Bowl winning team right now.  Why? Because the new guys think they can just walk in and think they’ll just win a Super Bowl?  With Tom Brady and Belichick here we should be fine? It’s okay for the media to say that, but as a player, you can’t think that way or you’ll be out. The defense can’t give up 300-plus yards a game as they have done. The defense ranks last in the league. With Stephon...

Boston Red Sox Season in Review

Boston Red Sox Season In Review The 2017 Boston Red Sox season had a lot of ups and downs. A 93-69 season. The Red Sox acquired Chris Sale, the pitcher they needed at the top of their rotation. Lingering questions burned about David Price, and his spat with Dennis Eckersley and the media only added more fuel throughout the season. The ‘little leader’ Dustin Pedroia, batted just .204 in his last 26 postseason games. The Red Sox starting pitching in four ALDS games pitched 11.1 innings, gave up 23 hits, 16 ER, 6 HR. ERA: 12.70.

Red Sox Are About To Get Swept

Red Sox About To Get Swept Again The Boston Red Sox face another swept for the second year in a row in the ALDS. Chris Sale, allegedly the ace, pitched game one.  He hadn’t pitched a postseason game befor, but he should have been fine, right? Wrong! He pitched five innings, gave up nine hits, seven runs, three home runs and had an ERA of 12.60. Some Red Sox fans need to wake up.   Winning the American League East means nothing if you can’t make it past the first round of the playoffs. Red Sox in the Playoffs —...

New England Patriots Split Month One — 2-2

Patriots Are 2-2 The New England Patriots are 2-2 for the first time since the 2014 NFL Season. We all know what happened they ended up winning the Super Bowl. You would think with the latest additions in the offseason they wouldn’t be 2-2. The Patriots almost lost to Houston at home if it wasn’t for Tom Brady saving the day. He can only do so much though.  The defense has to step it up. That win against the Houston Texans was a win because Tom Brady went down the field scored  and he had the ball last. Sunday...

Red Sox Open Postseason Against The Astros

Red Sox Set To Open Postseason   The Boston Red Sox open the postseason Thursday at 4pm CT at Minute Maid Park in Houston. The Red Sox vs. Houston match up seems to be a lot better than the Cleveland match up from last year in the postseason. Chris Sale gets the start on Thursday, without a good September to close the regular season. The Red Sox clinched the division Saturday and celebrated in the clubhouse,  but they still need 11 more wins. Can They Win the American League East?

Red Sox Backing Into The Playoffs

Red Sox Backing Into The Playoffs With the regular season coming to a close and the playoffs starting, it seems the Boston Red Sox are backing into the postseason just like last year. Last season the Red Sox won the division with a loss to the Yankees but still wearing goggles and drinking champagne in the clubhouse. The Red Sox play the Astros today and tomorrow to close out the regular season. They have lost four of their last five games and lead the division by two games. With a Red Sox win or a  Yankees loss they would...

Drew Pomeranz Has a Rough Start

The Boston Red Sox opened up a series against the Toronto Blue Jays Monday night.  Drew Pomeranz got the start and pitched completely opposite of what he’s been doing all season. Going into the game he was 16-5 and looking for his 17th win of  the season.  Pomeranz would give up five runs and only last two innings before being taken out in the third.  He gave up seven hits, five runs, one walk, and one home run. The home run came in the first inning by Josh Donaldson hitting the ball to center field.  Austin Maddox, Blanie Boyer,...

Red Sox Playoff Pitching Rotation

With The Regular Season Ending, The Red Sox Get Their Rotation Ready The Major League Baseball season is almost over, believe it or not which means teams will be getting ready for the playoffs. While others will be making plans for their off season.  The Red Sox have 11 regular season games left before the playoffs get underway. The starting rotation all year has been in question. With David Price now coming out of the bullpen, Chris Sale having a few rocky starts lately, the true ace on the team right now is Drew Pomeranz.   Pomeranz is 16-5...

Patriots: On To New Orleans

After the Patriots got their wake up Thursday night against Kansas City, it’s on to New Orleans to play the Saints on Sunday. The Patriots appeared lost on offense, defense, and special teams. It was unusual for the Patriots to have a distraction get in the way. Too much play, not enough work? What was the distraction? The banner ceremony for one.  But Brady and Bill have all the answers, right?  Some players might think that this game was going to be a cakewalk but that certainly didn’t happen. Like Belichick said,  “Last year was last year. This is...

It’s that time of year again.   It gets darker earlier, summer fades,, the leaves change, and football begins.

Patriots vs Chiefs Preview

Embed from Getty Images We are hours away from the Opening Night in the NFL. The Patriots will reveal  their fifth Super Bowl Banner then it’s game time against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Patriots are 13-17 overall against the Chiefs, but this year is a little different. The Patriots are stacked even with Julian Edelman out for the year. Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola, a healthy Rob Gronkowski,  and newly acquired Phillip Dorsett. Kansas City doesn’t really have a standout player other than Tyrek Hill, they’re wide receiver. If you look at the Coaches Andy Reid, and Bill Belichick...

It’s September 1st Red Sox Final Stretch of the Regular Season Begins

It’s September 1st which means summer is over, it’s football season, and the weather changes. It also means  we are pretty much in the final month of the Red Sox season. For some fans it’s a worrisome time, and for some it’s when do the playoffs start? The Red Sox have a rocky history in September we all remember the September collapse in 2011 that lead to Terry Francona’s firing. Could the same happen this season? The answer to that question is I don’t know, you really never know with this team. This series with the Yankees is a...

Brady Is Immortal: The Madden Curse Falls on Brady’s Favorite Reciever

When it came out back in May that Tom Brady would grace this year’s cover of Madden 18, the announcement met with a mix of support and outrage. The dreaded “Madden Curse.” Some, including Brady, say there’s no such thing as curses. Others said that he shouldn’t be on the cover. It will destroy his season. Who, can forget when Rob Gronkowski was the cover boy last year, then sidelined for the season.? Now, Julian Edelman, Tom Brady’s best friend and most trusted receiver, done for the season with a torn ACL. You can argue about whether starters should...

Red Sox Have a Rough Weekend

The Red Sox entered the series with the Baltimore Orioles sitting on a 4.5 game division lead on Friday.  But the starting pitchers took a beating all weekend, barely getting an out. The schedule won’t get any easier, with the Blue Jays Monday through Wednesday, then off to New York for a four-game series beginning Thursday. Mauled on the mound Friday night Rick Porcello pitched only 4.2 innings, gaving up nine hits, four runs, and four strikeouts in the 16-3 loss. Saturday, Eduardo Rodriguez pitched, showing no improvement as they fell behind early, again. Eduardo Rodriguez pitched a five-run...

Should Starters Play in Preseason Games?

Friday night in Detroit the New England Patriots faced off against the Lions, the third preseason game for the Patriots. The starters took the field in the first quarter and completely burned the Detroit defense. But the excitement of watching the points pile up ended abruptly in the worst possible way. Julian Edelman.  Down on the field.  Not springing up and running into the huddle.  Out came the injury cart.  And down dropped the hearts, if not hopes, of Patriot Nation.  On the following day, the worst fears revealed on an MRI.  A torn ACL, ending the 2017 regular...
