Me too! Fire away.
After listening for a few minutes yesterday discussing the Brandin Cooks trade (praising in, while at the same time rehashing the Jimmy G trade), they criticized the Rams for making a stupid move, because they "could just get him next year in free agency".
I don't think they actually believe it, but it certainly is a HUGE part of their show...assuming teams can just automatically sign whatever FA they want. Its annoying.
so The Bruins are dominating their series thus far, the Celtics won game 1 in a great game to watch, the Red Sox are on fire at 13-2 and it’s marathon Monday. So what do we lead off with???? Let’s continue the talk about the patriots dysfunction instead. *click*
I'm about fucking done with the Patriots, man. I'm almost at the point that if they moved, I'd almost be happy because I wouldn't have to hear people talk about them for 12 straight months.
Like BSF said, the Bruins have a game tonight and they're dismantling the Leafs. The Celts played yesterday and won a really good game. The Sox are 13-2 -- the first team to win 13 out of 15 game since the 1987 Milwaukee Brewers and these three knuckle draggers want to talk gossip and Patriot soap opera bullshit.
They are unlistenable at this point. They just want to latch onto any possible drama (and there is plenty) with the Patriots at this point and are tone deaf to their audience. And Mazz has always been a dope.
I tuned in today hoping to get some talk about the Bruins, Sox or Celtics. Nope, all I got was palace intrigue about the Patriots.
As an aside, it's amazing to me how many people have never had a boss they thought to be an a-hole but respected nonetheless because they delivered the goods.
The Sox, Bruins, and Celtics are all playing too well right now for them to make them the local loser franchise, so which team can they talk about but the one that literally plays in their conference championship game every single year, and plays in their league championship game most years. It's not like they can ever say good things about the local teams.
I thought I was crazy here. They’re literally slipping in “minutes” about the teams currently playing in the postseason. The producer of their show is the absolute worst.
look i like the drama
but if i was a pats fan these three wouild piss me off a cora will win more than 1 wouild series the B'S will win 2 cups in the next 4-5 years and the c's will win a tittie by 2020
there is pleanty to talk about
NE Pats has had a outstanding 18 year run yes it will be over in 2019 but so what u are on a GB DAL PITT lever in the nfl if i told u 30 y ago that u wouild win 5 SB and were 1-2 plays from 5 more u take it
I feel EXACTLY the same way and I don't ever listen to those guys. But its the same on EEI. All Patriots bullshit all the time. I don't even like basketball, but please, dear god if you aren't going to talk Red Sox until the summer or Bruins for some inexplicable reason, talk about the C's instead of football.
It's still too early for the casual listeners to talk Sox, and there aren't any casual listeners for C's/B's, so it has to be Pats. The hard core sports fan isn't the customer for this medium.
That is complete and utter bullshit.
It's too early to talk Sox? They were crucifying Cora on day two thanks to the bullpen meltdown. They always talk Celtics when something goes off the rails. Same thing with the Bruins. And the Pats seem to be in disarray, but who knows if that's true because nothing ever leaks out of Foxboro. So it's the lazy man's four-hour of conversation: make up or speculate on things that you aren't sure whether its true (and don't worry, people won't call you on it anyway) and to be safe, keep it on the negative side because you know, people don't like to hear anything good.
Yep. Lots of Bruins talk likely today.
"I told you to be nervous"
"You're right Mike"
"Tuukka again - this guy just craps his pants in big games"
"Can't trust him"
"And Pastrnak and Marchand back to being playoff losers. They almost fooled us for two games there."
"They're losers, Mike"
"And where's Donato? Can't play him 'cause he's too young, right? Huh."
Are you sure about this? There are no causal Bruins listeners.
i want a vegas-b's finals
Mazz still has a problem with Mookie Betts and says you can pitch to him to mitigate his strengths. Says Mookie "does not scare me". This guy used to be a national baseball writer, correct?
Is Mazz still bragging that he doesn't watch the games? To be scared (or not) by Betts, it might be helpful to actually see most of his at-bats. (Crazy, I know.)
There's definitely a job out there as Pitching Coach for some lucky franchise with Mazz's name all over it. Lucky for Mookie that none of the other pitching coaches thought to mitigate Mookie's strengths.
Mookie doesn't scare me either. He seems like a nice fellow.
He knows less about baseball than you'll forget. He is a clown.
maybe mazz should mange the yanks he wouild be better than aaron vance joseph boone
Wouldn't surprise me if he didn't even know their record, he crucified Alex Cora around a week or so ago for saying the team was playing good, during a stretch when the team went 8-1 and was on an 8 game winning streak.
He did talk a lot a couple of days ago about staying up late for the Ohtani game, but with Ohtani being yanked from the game fairly quickly he probably was in bed by the 3rd or 4th inning.
Today’s “Patriots are burning” theory was a good one. Now that the Brady retiring stuff has been basically debunked, these guys talked themselves into Kraft and B.B. striking a deal where Bill would prep for and run the draft and then resign immediately afterwards. Kraft would honor his contract but this would give Bill the last word and final FU to Brady.
