Week 4 NFL Preview: Patriots vs. Falcons

The transition to the new receiving corps hasn’t been pretty, but they don’t draw pictures on the scoreboard. Bottom line is that our New England Patriots have found a way to win their first three games. Fans are used to seeing a well-oiled offensive machine out of Tom Brady and their frustration even amounted to boos this past […]

Week 2 NFL Preview: Patriots vs. Jets

If you asked me to preview this game a week ago, I would have chuckled while predicting a laughable score in the Patriots favor. Today, there is no way I can do that. The NFL is a crazy league. The change of feeling has more to do with what I saw from the Pats than what […]

Week 1 NFL Preview: New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills

This is it. Week one of the NFL season has finally arrived. It’s a bittersweet time since it also means the end of summer. But I have been anxiously awaiting this week all summer, the time when all the fantasy drafts and projections turn into results that no one saw coming. This year, the Patriots […]

Why the Red Sox need to re-sign Jacoby Ellsbury

Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury is set to become a free agent after the 2013 season and the Sox need to re-sign him. Now in his 7th MLB season (all with Boston) Ellsbury has proven himself as one of the best defensive players in the league and having a quality defender in center is vital. He is […]

Fantasy Football Draft Help: Top 10 Quarterbacks

The quarterback position in fantasy football is rapidly changing. The NFL is becoming becoming more and more of a passing league every year.

I believe there are 15 QBs this year who are legitimate fantasy starters in […]

Video: Ryan Dempster Hits A-Rod with Pitch – And Wakes a Sleeping Bear?

Even though Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez was suspended for 211 games by the MLB, he is still playing because he has exercised his right to appeal that suspension as a “first-time offender.” Due to the complications in the case, it is likely that A-Rod will play the rest of the regular season. This may seem outrageous to […]

Koji Uehara Back in 2014: This Good or Bad?

When the Red Sox signed relief pitcher Koji Uehara this past offseason, the deal was announced as one year for $4.25 million. However, WEEI’s Alex Speier reported the other day that Uehara is about to hit a previously unknown contract milestone that will keep him in Boston for the 2014 season as well. Uehara’s contract states that if […]

Is Will Middlebrooks Back for Good?

This time last year, it looked as though the Red Sox had secured the third base position for years to come. Will Middlebrooks got called up to the big leagues in May, and the combination of his big bat and fielding ability at the hot corner had fans dreaming about the future. His play was […]

2013 Fantasy Football Preview: Patriots Edition

Bill Belichick is notorious for giving Fantasy Football owners headaches season after season. This is because you never know which player(s) he is going to revolve his game plan around. His system is designed to find a mismatch, not pad anyone’s stats. Fantasy owners shouldn’t count on this strategy changing any time soon. In his […]

What Happened to Daniel Bard?

Remember Daniel Bard? He was the Boston Red Sox 2006 1st round draft pick out of the University of North Carolina. He had a big arm and was widely regarded as an elite prospect. Initially, he lived up to the hype. From 2009-2011, he was an elite set up man for the Red Sox and […]
