Connelly’s Top Ten – Brady Treat, Sandlot and Rich Hill

Patriots Misc * We say it almost every week – appreciate every Tom Brady start – what a treat! * How long before the “running it up” talk starts (funny thing is they could have easily scored 70 if more efficient in Red Zone) * TV Analyst Rich Gannon kept his streak going at Foxboro […]

Connelly Top Ten: Revenge Tour Continues

1. Offense: – Brady on pace for 800 passes – Dobson best game – though could have scored on seam route but fell down – why they go for it in 4th down – could have flipped game – should have run some clock late 2. Defense: – Fletcher has to go – Chandler Jones […]

Connelly’s Top Ten: Ortiz Pumped Up, Bills Tough, Mork or Spock?

1. Patriot Stuff: * Is Roethlisberger still locked in that bathroom: Watching multiple football games this weekend and couldn’t believe how many teams defensive lines shift before the snap * I think the Bills are legit and to have skilled players McCoy, Harvin and Watkins is more than sufficient with that defense * Half the […]

Connelly’s Top Ten: Patriots Preview and the Jefferson’s

1. Patriot Predictions: * I would be careful on betting on Patriots vs. Steelers – lot of distractions and Patriots start slow * Backfield will do what they always do – 50 receptions / pick up blitzes / get tough yards * Ugh – Bend don’t break is back – not fun to watch and […]

Connelly’s Top Ten: Bingo – We Win Again!

1. Vindication of Brady: * Name a guy (maybe Jeter) who has so consistently done and said the right thing as much as Brady – while Tiger, Armstrong, Tyson, Peterson, Kobe, Floyd Mayweather, etc have allowed to thrive and be promoted * A team player who cares so much about team and winning that he […]

Connelly’s Top Ten: Red Sox Can’t Bunt, Brady Scares New England, Decorated War Vets Come to Boston

1. Red Sox: * De Arza not getting a bunt down in the 9th led directly to a loss – I hope Lovullo goes Herb Brooks on the team and has them practicing bunting until the lights go out * Red Sox are 14-11 when Hanley doesn’t play * Watching the ball roll under Rusney’s […]

Connelly’s Top Ten: Patriots 3rd Game, Trades, 9/11 Fallout

1. Red Sox: * How bummed is John Farrell to see the change in Red Sox spirit?

Connelly’s Top Ten: Sox, Pats and Nudity at Strega

Red Sox: * Tazawa the worst bid at a save Evah! 1 inning 6 hits four runs – miss a bat one time * When was the last time you saw an MLB game with four sacrifice bunts * How did that many Kansas City fans get that many tickets in one section * Hanley […]

Connelly’s Top Ten – Trades, Video-gate and Oreo’s

1. Red Sox: * Joe Kelley moustache makes him look like Snidely Whiplash from Dudley Do Right * Speaking of Kelley – he’s so funny arguing with the coaches for taking him out of the game with an ERA over 5.30 * Can you imagine Jackie Bradley, Christian Vazquez and Iglesias in the line up […]

Connelly’s Top Ten: Wendell Kim back from dead?

1. Red Sox: * Third base coach Brian Butterfield is lucky this is Pink Hat nation – how many times this year have I said that his judgment would have him fired from a little league team. Sending Ortiz when he wasn’t even at third in the 9th when the left fielder had the ball […]

Connelly’s Top Ten: Channel 4 Producer, Boyce, Cherington and Goodell

1. Red Sox: * Should have traded Buchholz before injury and Uehara before his injury * Hanley Ramirez on pace to play 138 games this season or 85% of the season – games played the last five seasons: 92 / 157 / 128 / 97 * Hanley first 82 at bats – 10 home runs […]

Connelly’s Top Ten: Red Sox Pitching, Bonnie and Clyde, Frank Gifford

1. Red Sox: * From MLB Network – Red Sox pitching has given up at least 7 runs in a game 32 times * Ortiz is hot and hitting the ball long – things that make me go hmmmm * I saw Hanley Ramirez run hard down to first Friday night and that noteworthy because […]

Connelly’s Top Ten: Someone Get Felger a Towel

1. Red Sox: * I don’ think I have ever seen Craig Breslow have a clean outing * Wait to next year when infielders have to throw to Hanley at first (they will need netting behind first base) * People wonder what David Ortiz would do in Yankee Stadium with the short right field porch […]
