The Bruins announced on Monday that they would be without center David Krejci for 4-6 weeks due to a partially torn MCL. Krejci, who had missed significant time earlier this season, is a top two center for the Bruins and proven himself to be an upper-echelon playmaker for the Bruins for years. He inked a seven year contract extension prior to this season showing that both he and fellow long term center Patrice Bergeron were part of the team’s long term future.

The injury may change how the Bruins approach the March 2 trade deadline and their playoff run. Up until news of Krejci’s absence, the Bruins had been in the market for a top six right wing and a top four defensemen, which are not easy to find in their own right. They now could be in the market for a top three center as well. Ryan Spooner played well in Krejci’s absence in a 6-2 win over the Blackhawks on Sunday and for now will hold the top 3 center role vacated by Krejci.

Many Red Sox fans have been dreaming of free agent third basemen, Pablo Sandoval since August. Those dreams only intensified after he put together an extraordinary post-season. There have also been rumors circulating that the Red Sox are “all in” on the powerful switch hitter.  And various reports have indicated that Sandoval is in Boston to meet with Red Sox management.

After a terrible season and a flurry of trade-deadline roster moves Sox fans are anxiously awaiting the announcement of splashy free agent singings. Plus, with news of Giancarlo Stanton signing one of the most lucrative deals in the history of sports, the Braves and Cardinals swapping stars, and the rival Blue Jays locking up catcher, Russell Martin—Sox fans are now desperately awaiting any sort of positive news from the free agent front.

But can Sandoval help the Sox contend in 2015? Continue reading Why the Red Sox DON’T Want Pablo Sandoval »

FanDuel Champion Frank Borawski

Twenty-seven year old BU grad, Frank Borawski, is not only a great fantasy football player, but also the Assistant Director of Finance at a nearby bank. His analytical business mind translates very well to the statistical minutia that is fantasy football. But Frank knows, like every fantasy football player knows, “Luck has a lot to do with it.” And I’m not talking about Andrew Luck.

Borawski is being sent to Las Vegas to participate in the FanDuel Championship because of a $1,000 Week 4 game, which he won. Frank was helped in Week 4 by huge performances by Steve Smith, Antonio Brown and Jordy Nelson. Borawski has been playing FanDuel for two years now, but remembers hitting it big for the first time last season.

“I was lucky enough to play LeGarrette Blount when he had the four-touchdown game.”

Yeah, that’ll help. And he wasn’t a diehard Pats fan going for the “homer” pick. Born in Connecticut, Borawski is a Cowboys fan, like his father. Continue reading Boston’s FanDuel Champion: Frank Borawski »
