    Call it "The Manny Ramirez."

    Kyrie is hurt and we have schadenfreude

    Fournier + Rose + filler (Gibson, perhaps) for Kyrie. Who says no?

    Red Sox sign James Paxton- 1/$10m+ 2yr club option

    Have the rules changed about roster spots for post-season eligibility or does his DL status insure he could join the team for playoffs regardless of when he is activated?

    And tonight we even it up.

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    Considering how much they can (and have) drop off Draymond, they should be able to get up tight on Curry and still have a pretty good ability to cover since if Steph does beat the screen hedge, it's not really 4 on 3, it's really 3 on 3 as Draymond can be ignored (as can Looney). Hedge the...

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    In this "Draymond Green problem" video linked above, they showed the clips that Cabin Mirror references, but also a bit where, unlike in prior games, they were keeping the lane free from cutters right before drives, which was only serving to give the Dubs the freedom to clog the lane. The clip...

    Watson to Cleveland

    I wonder if MLB's suspension of Bauer will impact the way the NFL approaches this.

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    Seems like looking at average margin of victory minus average margin of defeat might be more illuminating. Maybe?

    Grant “Corner Office” Williams

    It's also OK to slightly overpay for a rotation guy when he fits so well around your superstars. With JT as a max and JB a step below that as your big two, there's a lot more money for the RWs, GWs, Als and Marcuses, when you compare the total for the Jays to the total $ outlay to other teams...

    6/2—NBA Finals, Game 1, Celts at Warriors

    Fair It’s not based on anything rational, more that feeling of having survived a battle of a 7-game series with pundits predicting a challenge against a very good team, but the steamroller is cranking, the “getting to the finals” monkey is off their back, and so Boston rolls.

    Celtics vs. Warriors, NBA Finals

    I haven't seen GSW play much at all this year -- just a little bit of a couple playoff games plus the C's regular season game where Marcus rolled up on Curry -- but I'm wondering how some of the Celtics' past successful actions might play in this series which we didn't see much of in the Heat...

    6/2—NBA Finals, Game 1, Celts at Warriors

    I have a 2004 WS feel for some reason. I think the Celts blow them out in 5.

    Celtics vs. Heat, Round 3 Discussion

    Oh please don’t let this thread turn into another argument about top-10/15/20/25 of all time.

    Celtics vs. Heat, Round 3 Discussion

    Here's my "sort of old" story, Celtics-style. One of the first Celtics games I remember going to was in 1979, Bird's first year. I think it was this game against the Warriors. The thing I recall distinctly about that game was the Warriors backup center, Clifford Ray, seemed like an unknown...

    5/25 Celtics@Heat- ECF Game 5

    I agree. Plus having Williams setting up camp behind a hunted PP would make me feel better about the Celts' ability to combat that strategy.

    Jaylen Brown, The Vet Years

    According to statmuse.com, Jaylen was tied for 15th in the league (with Zach LaVine) for most games of 30 or more points scored. Tatum finished 5th. But no "second banana" had more than Jaylen.

    Celtics vs. Heat, Round 3 Discussion

    But sometimes a lob to Rob yields a basket without a dunk. The lob from Al in G4 was not a great pass and converting it was really a thing of beauty. Rob has pretty incredible touch on those balls.
