    Big changes at CSNNE and WEEI.com

    Imagine that would be pretty awkward. Isn't the whole point of going with aggregators is not needing to pay for them to be there? On another note Drellich and Bradfo's podcast on this move was very good in my opinion. interesting re his coverage in particular v traditional coverage Drellich...

    Gisele: Tom has had Unreported Concussions Every Year

    That structure falls apart, however, if the clubs don't do their part -- following protocols, getting concussed players out of games, and keeping them out until they are medically cleared to play again. I expect the NFL's investigation will focus exclusively on whether the Patriots followed the...

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    I listened to half of the sports media pod but I thought the irony of him commenting on tv skills ( ie Magic PTI SAS etc) was almost too much. I mean if there is one thing that Simmons objectively colossally failed at ( multiple times) it was being a TV personality. As for his baseball...

    Chris Sale to Boston for Moncada, Kopech, & 2 Prospects

    Torre's comments are just unreal On the Red Sox’s Sale: “That’s something we don’t really tolerate, throwing behind somebody . . . that’s something that’s dangerous. “It looked like it was intentional. Chris Sale is a great pitcher. When he throws the ball behind somebody, unless it’s a rainy...

    Chris Sale to Boston for Moncada, Kopech, & 2 Prospects

    A Sale suspension is the utmost garbage. Just pathetic. Anything else the Orioles want ?

    Barnes suspended 4 games for throwing at Machado

    Bradfo sums it up well http://www.weei.com/sports/boston/baseball/red-sox/rob-bradford/2017/05/03/why-there-was-nothing-wrong-chris-sales-timin With the understanding that the tribute to Jones was a piece of the night, there was also the recognition that everything else done on the baseball...

    Barnes suspended 4 games for throwing at Machado

    So in your first post the Sox are incompetent macho men for not throwing at Machado earlier or properly to appease fans and now their intentionally and improperly "making headlines" too soon after the Jones incident to make themselves look worse? With regards to Jones I called that racist...

    Barnes suspended 4 games for throwing at Machado

    1) What does the despicable racist shit towards Jones have to do with Machado ? The conflation of the absolutely deplorable treatment of Jones with an old fashion ( see Pedro and Rays) AL East bean ball war makes no sense to me. 2) If Sale hits Machado he's probably run the Sox bullpen is...

    Barnes suspended 4 games for throwing at Machado

    One thing I think can definitively be learned from this ongoing old fashion AL East feud is the national media would be wise to wait before choosing a side. Every national pundit/writer fell over themselves damning the Red Sox for the Barnes pitch (including Joel Sherman demanding a 25 game...

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    It is not ideal no doubt for a variety of reasons. But the availability of those networks and the hours of programming they have plus the massive pocketbook ( thanks ESPN for those rights fees) make MLB NFL NBA and NHL networks logical places for guys like Stark and the many others to apply to...

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    This makes all the sense in the world for MLB and really is an acknowledgement that MLB Networks' offerings have and will assuredly continue to outstrip ESPN coverage for baseball. I mean Kenny was at ESPN for years. Robert Flores is alright.

    The DDombrowski 2017 Report Card Thread

    I think DD's moves have made arguable sense and would seem to make a ton of sense given the young controllable assets all over the field. Consider the following - The worst players on the Red Sox play 3b,1b, and probably catcher. Pablo Moreland and Leon/Vaz really are going to be the pressure...

    2017 Butler Watch: Love Me Tender

    Per Butler's Agent oops I mean the generally likeable Mike Giardi Don't read too much into silence on Butler front. Focused on Saints. Parameters of deal mostly in place SOME (emphasis mine) quibbling over guaranteed $$$. As for compensation to Pats can't be discussed until Butler signs tender...

    2017 Butler Watch: Love Me Tender

    So in a Lombardi esque blatant use of media Payton goes on radio and praises Butler. NFL journos promptly say " done deal HC s never do this for player not on team". Meanwhile the Saints have a toxic cap situation which makes actually offering an unmatchable tender sheet extremely unlikely...

    2017 Butler Watch: Love Me Tender

    I'm very confused. M. Butler is under some deluded impression he has the leverage and rights of an UFA. Local hero nice prime age and at a position that's not easy to fill cheaply (see Gilmore) and the Pats are going to agreed to something more than 32(some mid rounders like either a 3rd or a...
