    Kemba Walker Injury

    It looked pretty gruesome as they carted him off the court. Reports later than night suggest that his injury might not be that serious. Get well quickly, Kemba. Medical reports and opinions welcome here.

    Petey chasing a mirage?

    According to ESPN, Dustin Pedroia is hoping to return next year after playing in just nine games during the past two seasons because of his injured left knee. "Every indication I've gotten is that he's feeling good and intending on playing," Chaim Bloom, Boston's new chief baseball officer...

    What is Danny's Best Move After the Trade with Brooklyn?

    Its really hard to choose, but for me the answer is the swap with Philadelphia and the draft of Jayson Tatum. I believe that Jason's best comp right now is Paul Pierce but he might be better and ascend into Larry Bird territory. Getting another first round draft pick as part of the package is...

    Xfinity sound quality

    I have Xfinity and find the sound quality so mushy that dialogue, particularly if in a foreign accent, is indecipherable. I thought that it was the speaker in the TV, so I connected the sound out of the TV to an amplifier that feeds perfectly adequate bookshelf speakers. Still the voices are...

    the no. 1 overall draft pick in 2013 is expected to be in uniform on Sunday. What a world.

    All Hail the GE Celtics!

    I was astonished to see the GE logo on the Celtics uniforms last night. I guess I didn't get the memo. Is this a thing now in the NBA? Will I ever get over it, like I've gotten over adds on the Green Monster? I found it offensive, but maybe I'm just cranky. What do you think of your new...

    Tzu-Wei Lin

    Well I tried this two years ago and posted a completely inaccurate summary of his year-to-date, so I'll stick to a couple of actual facts this time (with apologies for my butchered attempt in 2015). Mr. Lin is currently in Portland, where his OPS is .982. He's repeating at Portland, where his...

    Bobby Dalbec

    This 21 year-old 3B prospect starred as a two-way player at Arizona, including a stand-out performance in the 2016 College World Series as a starting pitcher. He prefers to play third base, and gave up pitching when he played for Lowell last year, where he posted an OPS of 1.104 based upon a...

    Jaylen Brown - underrated?

    Watching Jaylen Brown play, I find myself saying, "Meh". Athletic yes, but does he really contribute? Having very little sense of how rookies are supposed to fit into the NBA these days, I did a little research using statistics I frankly don't understand and that are probably ill-suited to the...

    Is there a simple way to copy programs from DVR to USB ?

    My home system is Comcast Xfinity using a Comcast-branded DVR with a label on the front that say XG1-A. I'm interested in being able to record a program, copy it onto a USB stick and watch it on a TV that would go in a garage that is not wired for cable. It is too far away from our router...

    resetting a iPhone to factory settings remotely

    My son moved to California taking with him his iPhone 6 and leaving in his wake an old iPhone 5 with a cracked screen. My wife, meanwhile, was using an antiquated dumb phone. So I had the cracked screen repaired and have swapped out her old phone on my account and inserted the iPhone 5 in its...

    Ben Taylor

    Pitched 4 innings for Salem tonight and got 10 strikeouts, giving up only two hits. WHIP this season of 0.95. As a 23-year old in the Carolina League he's not a top prospect, but tonight's performance deserves a mention.

    Hey, there are two more first round picks to ponder

    We worried all year about Dallas and its pick, which is number 16. Boston's home-grown pick is 23. This is the place to contemplate who the Celtics might pick up, assuming that the picks aren't traded away. In a different year, having nos. 16 and 23 would be something to be excited about...

    Roster turnover for 2016-17

    The Celtics have 8 draft picks and it is possible that Danny won't be able to deal many of them. Meanwhile their current roster includes three free agents (Turner, Zeller and Sullinger) and 6 players to whom the team is committed for only one more year (Amir, Marcus, Sullinger, Olynyk, Rozier...

    2017 Golf Thread

    I've played golf in Plymouth and Buzzards Bay 3 times in January. While the recent snowstorm has put that on hold for a while, there may be a warming trend that will melt the snow within a week and Accuweather (for what it's worth) is predicting a high in the 50s on February 3. If anyone else...

    Tzu-Wei Lin

    Tzu-Wei was demoted from AA to high A this year and the change of scenery seems to have done his some good. His OPS was .574 in Portland and it is .698 in Salem.  He's not setting the world on fire but he's making steady progress, having move up a level each year since he was signed. He...

    Shavlick Released, Babb Signed

    and assigned to the Red Claws.  I guess it doesn't pay to elbow Olynyk in practice. http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/2015/04/06/celtics-sign-chris-babb-multi-year-deal/HAKL79GOzbXzmrVDsTfbyK/story.html

    Gigi-- Ooh La La! (Would you start him over Turner?)

    Gigi Datome's scoring has been startling.  I have no knowledge of his abilities in other areas, but the man can certainly score.    I stuck my head up in a game thread recently and defended Evan Turner.  I was quickly cut to shreds, and deservedly so.  Watching last night's game I saw play after...

    Would you trade Jerebko for Jeff Green straight up?

    Again, Danny seems to have dispatched a player and received in return (via Tayshaun Prince) a better player and a first round draft pick.  Amirite?

    Would you trade Jae Crowder for Rajon Rondo -- straight up?

    I ask the question because I can't get over how badly Danny picked the pockets of Dallas in this trade.  Now the question is not entirely fair because we have a greater need at the 3 than at the 1 right now, so let me rephrase it.  If you were starting a team and you had to pick either Crowder...
