    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    He actually had the lack of self-awareness to say, "My bar is incredibly high in the NBA" compared to other leagues in terms of who you could build a team around. Felger and Murray laughed in his face.

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    Mazz had a “thing” about JD Martinez: Stanton’s much better. Mazz has a “thing” about Mookie: not enough of a leader, doesn’t want to be here. Mazz has a “thing” about Benintendi: he acts like he’s “too cool for school” despite several other media members stating AB is a good kid who’s a...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    I think the difference being that Mazz declared that it was fixed based on selective interpretations of events; Murray just wants it to be rigged because of all the drama. Mazz is a phony who tries to come across as erudite... Murray will readily admit he's just a fan and enjoys the...

    Greatest RHH of all time?

    My grandfather was born in 1902, raised in Cambridge and was a semi-pro baseball player. When I was young I used to love to ask him who was the best player he ever saw, thinking that it was a toss-up between Ruth and Cobb. He said it was The Rajah, a contemporary of the other two. I asked him...

    Game of Groans: How Does the Season End?

    I just want them to end the season as the best version of themselves. *barf*

    Jaylen Brown - underrated?

    There was an interesting article in the Globe yesterday about this. JB is a terrific basketball talent, but I think he's also a pretty exceptional young man. Still only 22YO. Remarkable. I find him easy to root for, and hope he has a long career with the Celtics.

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    They haven't had front office or managerial/head coach types on the show since Neely told them to shove off a few years ago. Last week they had KPD on: "I'm pretty sure he hates us." as well as Jack Edwards "I'm pretty sure he hates us." Now, neither of those two are exactly Fran Rosa, but...

    2019 NFL Draft Rounds 4-7 Game Thread - Spoilers Welcome

    I really like what the Pats have done, but it also harkens back to a comment attributed to Belichick from a few years ago that at this point in his coaching career, he just wants to coach “his guys”. All of this year’s picks come from Power 5 schools, with the SEC leading the way (Williams...

    Damien Harris: Adding to the stable

    He originally committed to Michigan, but quickly de-committed during the tire fire that was Brady Hoke's last year. By the time Harbaugh came aboard, it was way too late to get him back. He reminds me a little of Mark Ingram. Short, but pretty stout and runs tough (if not fast). Apparently...

    Chase Winovich: Foxboro Fabio

    First team All-B1G. And also two-time second team All-American! Early comps have him being very Ninkyish, but I actually think he’s more like Vrabel in terms of his position versatility, football IQ and personality. I think he’s going to add a lot to the locker room in addition to his...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    The only thing worse than their “evaluation” of Patriot draft picks vs. “need” is... anything they say about the Celtics and the NBA. This upcoming week is going to be horrendous.

    Thank You, Hondo

    Likewise... and Bobby Orr. My Dad played college basketball for Harvard in the mid-50’s. Played against the Holy Cross guys (Heinsohn in season and Cousy as a counselor at summer camps) and even Jim Brown the football legend. So I listened to what my Dad had to say about Hondo, who was about 5...

    I love how the agent said that Russ wanted to stay in Seattle "so he compromised".

    The Return of the (PG) Hook Shot - Michigan BBall 2018-2019

    This is going to be a tough row to hoe if all three of Matthews, Iggy, and Poole leave. Hope either Iggy or Poole return (Matthews is gone, imho). Will be tough to see where the buckets will come from next year if Livers doesn’t stay healthy.

    JBJ: Elite Defender With Some Pop

    JBJ explained in a Globe note yesterday that he feels he's "in between" with his changes, in other words some of his old habits are interspersed with his updated mechanics. He feels he needs to tweak a couple of things to refine his new/updated swing mechanism.

    Dan Shaughnessy: Taking a dump in your mouth one column at a time

    Dan acting wounded about the disappearance of one of the more polarizing figures in Sox history is the height of irony. It's not like Shank needs Deep Throat to lob grenades and recycle negative Sox tropes.

    Most Hated Patriots & Opponent Player

    I’ll second Ray Lewis. Hines Ward and Shannon Sharpe are close seconds. Patriot? Kenneth “Game Day” Sims. Woof.

    Chad Finn: Underrated

    Chad has a tremendous article about the Sox outfield and how it might compare to other historic outfields. Just a fantastic read and trip down memory lane.

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    SAS wondering how the Trout contract will impact Mike Sciosia. Idiot.
