    I think we did with German a few days ago, though maybe he was just the opener. But I kind of doubt we'll see too much experimentation with that. Too many bullpen arms to figure out post-season roles for, or not.

    Sterling: "One weakness is that he gives up home runs". 20 seconds later, Pham goes yard. But on the positive side, there was nobody on base.

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 seaso

    SAS is an asshole. Beyond being obnoxious for ratings, just about everything he does is with a mind toward currying favor with players, who are his best sources. Point being, whatever nonsense we hear from him is likely the same kind of stuff circulating amongst the players he interacts with...

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 seaso

    Yeah. It sure seems like the Celtics are buying time with the suspension. More time to investigate allegations, legal stuff to sort through, and maybe some sensitivity to player concerns about a rush to judgment that an immediate firing would bring more of than just the initial suspension.

    Fun game. Let's do it again tomorrow.

    That was a hell of a throw from Judge. Absolutely perfect.

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 seaso

    Anything is possible, but I agree that it seems unlikely. I'm curious where the leaks that this is all a Steve Pagliuca overreaction are coming from. Could be straight truth. Could be from someone carrying water for Ime. It may take a while, but I'd guess there will be enough media types...

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 seaso

    I have more confidence in organizations that handle bad situations like this appropriately (professionally and ethically) than those that don't. And that confidence also extends to generating good results on the court or whatever profession they're in. Obviously we don't know very much to...

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 seaso

    I have a feeling that there is some ongoing discussion/negotiation with Ime and or lawyers and the team is holding off announcing anything official while things are still a bit fluid. That makes some sense to me, especially if the leaks didn't come from organization leadership and they didn't...

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 seaso

    I think the only way this torpedoes the team this year is if Ime's coaching is a difference maker on the court and whoever is in the seat, with whatever additional support the Celtics hire, can't collectively do what Ime does. I don't think it is likely. Too much talent on the team.

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 seaso

    Yeah, it's fuzzy. I read it as she previously worked directly for Pagliuca but now did work for the Celtics as a business analyst contractor.

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 seaso

    Why does it matter if it was a contractor working for the team as opposed to permanent staff? Aren't cheerleaders and probably lots of other people associated with the organization considered independent contractors? Wouldn't any organizational guidance on relationships or what could be...

    Good for the Celtics to take this sort of thing seriously. Whatever this thing is.

    I love watching the kid from Toms River pitch, but assuming someone else isn't banged up and could use some IL time, I think sending him and Weissert down is the right move. They know what Marinaccio can do. Not much time to see what Britton has going. They need to know.

    I almost feel bad for Roansy. Almost.
