    Pearl Jammin' with Grandpa, the Bill Simmons Thread

    I'm a longtime Simmons fan going back to his 25,000-word "Boston Sports Guy" columns on AOL. But I found that HBO promo just cringeworthy. He can be a funny writer. But he's not a comedian.

    MLB.tv Class Action Suit

    I got the email, but I do the cable-cutting thing, so as I understand it, this means that I now save 20 bucks on the full MLB.tv sub, which is nice. Though I mainly watch the Red Sox, I definitely enjoy watching other games from time to time so it's doubtful that I'll exercise the single-team...

    Is there any chance that Roger Goodell and the NFL are the least bit embarrassed by this shit show?

    Watching the Jones: Dazed & Confused

    They need to be honest, frankly. Full transparency is not their style I realize. But there is no real way to spin this or just hope it goes away. It won't. Just tell the truth good or bad, take their medicine and move on. Otherwise this will become a massive distraction. Exactly everything BB...

    Watching the Jones: Dazed & Confused

    Whatever really happened, there's one thing I'm certain of. Namely, that the Patriots usual "clam up, keep it all in house" approach is already not serving them in this situation. It is probably too late already, but they need to get out in front of this story because when we all wake up...

    What year is your favorite Red Sox season?

    Not much of a contest in my book, as 2004 stands far above any other season in my lifetime, even the other two WS wins, great as they were. My 2nd place season, however, would be 2007 — my vote for most underappreciated Red Sox season. The Red Sox led from wire-to-wire (well except for the first...

    WS GAME thread: NYM vs. KC

    One thing I'll say for Collins. He knows he fucked up and in the postgame, he owned it. Doesn't change anything, but at least he has some integrity, unlike certain managers in Red Sox history who still defend their most egregious blunders years later.

    WS GAME thread: NYM vs. KC

    What a total meltdown. Mets are not exactly a mentally tough team. Yes, give KC credit, they are a relentless and deep team. But the Mets could have won this series if they weren't such a bunch of boneheads.

      Yup. Except for Game 2, every other game has been very winnable -- in fact, should have been won by the Mets. And they won only one of them.

    Very much doubt he loses his job. He may need to go on suicide watch for letting Harvey change his mind for him. In the dugout shots, Collins looks like he's about to vomit.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure that this will be the last inning.

    I'm actually rooting for the Mets, but I'll say this. The Royals are where they are because they are an incredibly disciplined team. The Mets are a talented team that plays a pretty raggedy brand of baseball.    Plus, if the Mets lose this as I expect they will, Collins letting Harvey talk him...

    Yes. Duda had some sort of a brain cramp that extended to his arm. Good aggressive gamble by Hosmer, but he was dead to rights with any kind if throw can actually be caught. Duda and Cespedes have been poison to this Mets team in this WS.

      He has been a butcher in center field. Maybe he should have listened to Arnie Beveler after all.

    Why Do I Continue to Read Peter King?

    The education is that employers can't do whatever they want -- if the employees have a union. That was my "teachable moment" from Deflategate. Without the union, the NFL could have suspended Brady for life and there's not much anyone could do about it.

    Report: This is Don Orsillo's last season

      When you sample games around the league with MLB.tv, it is shocking how mediocre — or worse — most other announcers are. I tried watching some of a Pirates game recently and, man, those guys sound like they're barely awake. Orsillo, and the Orsillo-Remy team, may not be the very best, but they...
