    Toucher and Hardy: The new 98.5 morning show

    Fred should be giving his new cohost some space to grow into the role. From the small amount I've heard Fred is taking the space for himself

    The Celtics Offseason

    Mentioned upthread but in situations like this the Cs phone will be ringing over the summer, rival GMs will circle like buzzards. What teams are in similar spots - disappointing, underperforming ends and a need to change *something* Memphis - might be looking for a veteran that could keep Ja...

    Jayson Tatum's Rise to the Top

    That may be last game Doc coaches - he's not interested in a rebuild situation and I'm not sure any contender would be interested in him

    2022-2023 General Celtics thread

    I don't think you can have the needs conversation in a vacuum - what team(s) might you face in the ECF? What are the matchups that you could improve on? Consider past examples, DJ was brought on as a Toney stopper and turned out to be pretty good versus Magic as well. PJ Brown/Posey were signed...

    Joe Castiglione Cutting Back

    iirc Castig is 75, have to start cutting back at some point

    So long, Framingham Lou (and other WEEI discussions)

    My bad, that would be a big step up for him. As a radio color guy I think he's improved from awful to mediocre, maybe he'd be more suited to TV

    So long, Framingham Lou (and other WEEI discussions)

    But that's the TV booth, iirc this was in regards to the radio. Castiglione and Flemming are the radio booth, they are both p-b-p guys and alternate during the course of a game. I could see Merloni as a color guy but does that means 75 year old Castig does p-b-p for every inning of every game...

    RIP Toucher and Rich Show ... It was fun while it lasted

    Agreed. I recall (erroneously maybe) after Fred came back from rehab he seemed angry at his wife/family that he had been forced to give up drinking. Hope to be wrong about it

    RIP Toucher and Rich Show ... It was fun while it lasted

    I worry about Fred falling of the wagon. Would be entertaining radio but obviously not good for him

    Red Sox on the Radio

    Have listened to the radio broadcast for years and have to mostly disagree with the opinions here - Castig - tremendous, not just familiar and comfortable but damn good. I know exactly what's happening on the field when he's on the mic. Plus the anecdotes and references to past Sox players...

    Marcus Smart: 4 year, $77 million extension

    His best "assist" of the night was coming out to half court to chest bump PP after he put the full court clamps on Clarkson. The entire bench was fired up, Marcus especially

    Celtics sign Joe Johnson

    Let me add to the litany Pitino errors - In 2000 he drafted Jerome Moiso, sophomore at UCLA at #11. Moiso was a raw, athletic power forward who would need time to develop and was actually 22 at the time. Of course the rick-tator was playing Antoine Walker 39mpg at power forward and would...

    Analysis of Celtics Games, '21-'22 Season

    Two games in a row with effort and focus, would be nice to see a third Saturday night in Dallas. Does anyone remember the last time they played that way 3 games straight

    Celtics hire Ime Udoka as HC

    This was pointed out in the article, can't comment on the Schroeder, didn't see the game. Agreed on Tatum working the refs, I think he needs to pick his spots though, complain every time and it gets tuned out

    Celtics hire Ime Udoka as HC

    Coach Ime is doing things a bit differently than CBS. I didn't watch last night (last preseason game - bigger fish to fry right now) but combined with the Marcus suspension and the way they clearly announced it as such rather than quietly sitting him out it seems like there's been a conscious...

    Celtics Plan, Summer 2021

    I think the only chance to move Kemba will be to another team with their own disappointing playoff exit. I include the Blazers in that category but can't see how KW would fit. Same deal for the Lakers. Maybe the Clippers? The possible 2nd round disappointments - Bucks? 76ers? Jazz? Nuggets? -...

    RIP Toucher and Rich Show ... It was fun while it lasted

    I worry that Fred may be drinking again, hopefully not

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    Semi Ojeleye is the Kansas high school career scoring leader, iirc he averaged almost 40ppg his senior year
