Why Celtics Fans Should Love “The Decision,” Part I

If you’re like me, you were sick of “The Decision” before it was even made. The hype of the last two years all collapsed into a 24-hour revolving door of rumors with no validity and endless speculation. “The Decision” came, it went, and I couldn’t be happier it’s finally over. Cleveland feels betrayed, okay I […]

2010 NBA Draft Review

If you weren’t one of the 12 people who actually watched the entire NBA draft, I took the time to break down the first round pick-by-pick, player-by-player. If you were brave enough to watch the entire thing, I did my best to avoid the repetitive Jay Bilas player breakdowns. This is more of a speculative […]

Meet Boof Bonser

When the Boston Red Sox traded for Boof Bonser over the winter, it flew under the radar a little bit. For good reason. A casual baseball fan may know his name, you don’t forget a name like Boof. Sad to say, most of Mr. Bonser’s notoriety comes from merely that, his name. This will be […]

In the meantime, Theo Epstein’s having […]

J.D. Drew: Theo Epstein’s White Knight?

Calling J.D. Drew “easy to hate” may be a bit of an understatement. The soft-spoken right fielder for the Red Sox is entering his fourth season with the club since signing a lucrative five-year, $70 million deal following the 2006 campaign. Since signing that deal, Drew has become a magnet for criticism, whether it be […]

Red Sox Call Up Alan Embree: Lefty to the Rescue?

On Wednesday morning, the Red Sox recalled old friend Alan Embree from AAA-Pawtucket. The move will send pint-sized reliever Fabio Castro back down to Pawtucket, less than 24-hours after being called up for the struggling Scott Atchinson. (Sorry Dustin, you again are the shortest player on the Red Sox.) Embree’s contract is fitted with walk-clause that expires on Friday, meaning […]
