    Rethinking Barstool?

    I think that you're right, it was Colby.

    Rethinking Barstool?

    I'm not sure if I agree with you 100% on this. Magary has some serious Boston/New England PTSD from his one year at Bates. I'm not sure what those dudes really did to him -- he wrote some stuff awhile back -- but the dude has real hate for New England. A few years ago, he said that the two...

    Rethinking Barstool?

    I'm not sure if it's so much a New York thing (Deadspin doesn't love the Yankees, they rag on the Jets and Knicks, etc) but it might be a clicks thing and a thing where Boston is on top right now and we're kind of the bully of the sports landscape. Add to that the people from Boston who have...

    Rethinking Barstool?

    Yeah, I'm getting a little bored with their anti-Boston rhetoric too. It's the same thing over and over and over again. Also I'm not a Bill Simmons fan anymore, but for some reason Deadspin can't seem to stop commenting on everything he does. Like he gave an interview to AdWeek about branded...

    Big changes at CSNNE and WEEI.com

    I'm shocked that three old, crabby white men, who actively despise their audience, can't get any traction in a dying medium.

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

    That makes a bit more sense. Like I said, I turned off the radio once they went into this discussion because it was coo-coo bananas. He was completely all over the place.

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

    That's the thing, on one hand he's talking about guys like Nomar and Clemens and Jim Rice. On the other hand he's talking about John Valentin, Bruce HurJohn Tudor and Bob Ojeda. If he's saying the Red Sox aren't pumping out HoFers like they used to, then yeah, I guess he's right. But the Sox...

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

    I was on my way to urgent care a few minutes ago (I cut my finger [emoji80]) so I had the radio on to listen to the Baseball Reporters. Mazz was on and he was bitching about DD’s lack of success drafting, which I don’t think is unreasonable. But then he veered off into crazy town, asking...

    They also don’t seem to keen on talking about it.

    The Rays and their nagging attendance problem. Will a new stadium solve that?

    When the Rays move, the expansion talk can begin. I think that the Rays move to either Montreal, Nashville or Portland. Expansion takes care of the other two cities with Raleigh/Charlotte and Vegas being the backups.

    RIP Bill Buckner

    Probably not.

    RIP Bill Buckner

    If Tony Armas never got hurt, McNamara would never have thought to put Dave Henderson in centerfield, which means Hendu never takes Donnie Moore deep, the Angels win the Series and the Red Sox don't go to World Series. Consequently, Tony Armas' injury had adverse effects on Moore, Buckner and...

    RIP Bill Buckner

    That's not really true about Schiraldi either. In the thread about Ron Darling's book, Darling ripped Schiraldi and basically called him gutless but if you look into the numbers a bit more (like some fellow SoSHers did), you'll see that Schiraldi was worked like a dog that game and was probably...

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    Completely disagree. So when Ralph Branca died, they shouldn't have shown the homer he gave up to Bobby Thompson? Or how about Ralph Terry? Or Pat Darcy? Or Mitch Williams? For every great moment in baseball history, there has to be a tragic moment for the person who made the mistake. That's...

    RIP Bill Buckner

    Posnanski has a nice write up of Buckner, here. There are a lot of really interesting numbers in there.

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    I mean, listen, I liked Buck and I thought that he was a really good baseball player. But unfortunately, he's remembered for one pretty shitty play. To not show it wouldn't be correct. People make mistakes and shit happens. To ignore them or pretend that they didn't happen isn't being truthful.

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

    I don’t think that Mazz is the reason why the Felger and Mazz show is number one. Like him or not, Felger is that show’s engine and you could stick him with Fred Smerlas and have the number one show in Boston. And that’s a testament to Felger being prepared and having a strong POV. From what I...

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

    I agree 100%. I mean, it's not Red Sox 101, but it's part of the Red Sox 200-level course syllabus. Mazz should have known this off the top of his and probably should have know the name of the pitcher that plunked Williams. Why have him on the show if he's not the baseball expert? He has...

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

    It's amazing to me that people are so proud of their ignorance. Like Tony Mazz wears his stupidity on his shirt like a gigantic neon sign every day and then expects people to take him seriously as "an expert". What's the deal here? If you're an expert on Boston sports, your should probably...

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

    And the thing about Mazz' things is that he always couches it with an, "I don't know Mike but ..." like this is some sort of player tick that only he picked up and isn't quite sure what to do with. He's passive in every way, shape and form. At least Felger owns it.
