    RIP Johnny Pierson

    I have in my head a Boston Announcer HoF. Granted, it does mix play-by-play with color analysts, but here goes (ordered by team): Fred Cusick Derek Sanderson Bob Wilson Johnny Most Tommy Heinsohn Bob Cousy Gil Santos Gino Cappalletti Curt Gowdy Ned Martin Jim Woods Ken Coleman Sean McDonough...

    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    The Sons of Steve Alford message board doesn't have the nearly same cachet.

    RIP Johnny Pierson

    I saw the sad news posted in the April News thread by @ColdSoxPack , but I thought Pierson's passing was thread worthy in its own right. I grew up watching Fred and Johnny doing the telecasts on WSBK, TV-38. And then in the studios when Derek Sanderson moved to man the color mike. My dad...

    Celtics sign Jabari Parker

    I agree that it's way too early to write off Romeo Langford long term. He still shows flashes of why the Celtics brass are high on his prospects. There is definitely some overreaction to a a couple of bad games on a road trip in Romeo's case. However, it's unclear how much impact he can have...

    Celtics sign Jabari Parker

    Sure, if he's able to crack the top 12, he's definitely an upgrade over Wagner. Maybe it works; maybe it doesn't. If it doesn't, they didn't exactly give up anything.

    Celtics sign Jabari Parker

    +1. He'll be occupying the 15th roster spot. He's probably league average for a player in the 15th roster spot. I do not understand the angst.

    Pats Roster Planning: Defense

    Except there would be little reason to do that. As an asset, he is still far more valuable than a 3rd round pick.

    Pats Roster Planning: Defense

    Yes, if they wanted to. He would be UFA next season unless he signs an extension, and the Pats are not going to trade him for anything less than a 2nd round pick, so it seems unlikely he would be traded.

    Tremont Waters is Bad

    Waters is standard level for the 17th player on NBA roster. In a normal year, he would have been in Maine last night.

    Daniel Theis to Chicago for Mo Wagner

    Theis playing for his next contract was not going to be a great roster fit the rest of the season, especially as it seemed unlikely that he would stay in Boston. Giving up some depth there to stay under the tax line was a tradeoff well worth making.

    Pats QB Options

    Or it was just obvious that Tebow would not be an NFL quality TE or WR.

    Maybe the Red Sox are good?

    In defense of Ron Roenicke, I really don't think there's enough bad that can be said about the 2020 starting pitching for the Red Sox. Going by the number of games started: Martin Perez (12): Currently the 4/5 starter on the Red Sox, which seems about right. Nate Eovaldi (9): Solid season...

    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    And Pitino had essentially quit coaching the team long before.

    Tatum got the bag(5 years, $195 million)

    I don't disagree that a player's performance consists of both good and bad streaks, and that both "count" when evaluating a player. Sometimes, however, there is a cause; David Ortiz had a wrist injury that coincided with an off year. If Tatum had anything other than CoVid, I would agree that...

    Tatum got the bag(5 years, $195 million)

    Except Tatum's numbers were quite good pre-CoVid, took a marked dip when he came back, and now have improved as time has passed. And it is known that he had was quite ill and admitted he was having difficulty catching his breath when he first came back. And all of those symptoms are 100%...

    New England Patriots Hall of Fame

    #4 would like a word with you. Although he has his own display case in Toronto, so not perfectly analogous.

    New England Patriots Hall of Fame

    No disagreement; I have Butler in my "deserving of free admission and a beer" category. He would be #1 in the Hall of Honorable Mentions, however.

    New England Patriots Hall of Fame

    I'm with @MuppetAsteriskTalk that Faulk and Light deserve to be on the first list. All of the players on the first list are in the HoF (including Faulk and Light), with the exception of Vinatieri (who's not yet eligible) and Vrabel, who really should get in this year or next. Also, I will...

    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    I believe my first use of the phrase was discussing possible trade deadline deals. However, I was never particularly high on this team's regular season record or chances of competing against the Nets:

    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    I did refer to "bridge year" in some posts for a couple of reasons: 1.) I never felt this team as constructed after it lost Hayward would be able to compete w/ the Nets, and that was pre-Harden. I still feel that way; the Nets would likely win in 4 or 5. I don't believe that is new info...
