    Rich Paul/SI Article....

    Fair points. I still hope and assume that ownership will consider the issue, and unlike the folks on the board, I know well the person who has spoken with some of the minority owners about concerns they have with Ainge, but it looks like I did not read the SI article carefully enough and I...

    Rich Paul/SI Article....

    My point is that I think whether Danny is an issue for free agents is something ownership should consider. Not that they should can him. And fair points re the guys he has indeed reeled in. KD and AD not coming to Boston and Kyrie leaving after two seasons are data points but as people have...

    Rich Paul/SI Article....

    Could be. It could also be that Danny has turned off some players. To me, it's not so much as an AD issue. That's just one guy. His father was railing against Boston mid season. I'm only concerned if there's a lot of players who feel that Ainge is a problem given the amount of power the...

    NY trades for Encarnacion

    Not disagreeing but this feels like a salary dump and a guy getting way too little in that context.

    Pats file tampering charges against Texans

    There's undoubtedly a lot we don't know. But if Caserio wants to go to the Texans and will in fact go there when he is able to, then I agree with the comments that this is not the best situation. Seems like it would make a strange working relationship for the time being with Bill...

    Rich Paul/SI Article....

    "Cut their losses" was not a good choice of words. I meant "make a change in light of the circumstances." Ainge has been very good and made many smart moves, so "losses" is a poor word to use in this discussion. But I respectfully disagree that any discussion of whether Ainge has become an...

    6/16 at Balt. Series sweep

    That the Sox have not lost since the Weds night gut punch is very much appreciated. Please continue that.

    Rich Paul/SI Article....

    The thing that struck me the most about that article was Paul's comment that AD would not come to Boston because of management issues. I assume that ties back to Ainge/IT, and the perception that Danny mistreated him. I assume that is not code for Boston being a bad place for black players...

    Pats file tampering charges against Texans

    Has there been any indication or reports that Caserio actually wants to interview for the job? Or take the job? I have not seen that.

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    The level of overreaction to a comment in a game thread the day after a disappointing loss is profound. I know the pile on urge is great and it’s fun to marginalize. But holy shit, saying the Bruins didn’t play particularly well on Wednesday night shouldn’t be controversial and should not imply...

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    Right. Of course. Yep, it’s hard to believe that any of the first liners don’t need repairs. And thanks.

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    And the Bruins scored 12 goals in their two prior wins against that exceptional D. (Yep, two empty nets). It’s almost never binary. Saying the Bs were not at their best — which is unquestionably true — does not perforce mean the Blues has nothing to do with that.

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    If that’s a reference to the prostate cancer thread I started a few weeks ago, thank you and I don’t go back to him for about 5 months. So nothing to report. In the meantime, I’ve had no issues whatsoever in my recovery, thankfully, and resumed exercise this past week. With that perspective...

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    Funny, I agree violently with those bolded sentences and the relationship between them. That, to me, adds up to the Bruins not playing particularly well, especially under the circumstances. I don’t see that as a reactionary take in any way.

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    Thanks, Dad. A, it was in after glow of major disappointment. B, if you think the Bruins played at all well in that game, you're delusional. It was not just a case of the Blues taking it to them. The Bruins were not crisp and after the first period, put only sporadic pressure on Binnington...

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    I get and respect being a good loser and gracious. I was able to get there with the Blackhawks in 2013. The end of Game 6 was horrific but I thought of Chicago aw the better team and hoped Boston could overcome that. Like others, I know the Blues were better last night (Malden High would have...

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    So I’m not looking for sympathy here. And I would not get it if I was. But man did it suck to blow off work in NYC, have to deal with the normal series of issues I could handle by cell on the way up and during the day, go to the Garden to watch that shit show dud cock block of a game and then...
