Could Cuban Yoennis Cespedes Take Over Right Field for Red Sox?

Change is inevitable. For the Boston Red Sox, it’s necessary. As far as the outfield goes, Carl Crawford is in left and Jacoby Ellsbury in center. That begs the question; who is in right? J.D. Drew’s contract is up and there is no way the Red Sox re-sign Drew after his lack of production in […]

Jermaine O’Neal: Keep or Dump?

Hit the showers, overpaid players! Whether or not the NBA players union and owners get a deal done any time soon, what fans do know is that there will be a new amnesty clause coming before any team hits the hardwood. The clause will allow each NBA team to dump the contract of any one […]

Mayor Menino Wants David Ortiz to Sign 8-Year Deal with Red Sox

Can someone please give this man eight more years in office? Big Papi that is. Seriously, if David Ortiz doesn’t run the city of Boston then who will? Tom Menino? No! Menino doesn’t even want to, he wants Papi to do it himself. “I’d like to see an eight-year deal myself,” Menino said when asked […]

Sox Edge out Rays in 16

Some games can really turn into marathons. That just happened to be the case Sunday night, as the Boston Red Sox took on Tampa Bay Rays in what turned out to be a pitching duel that lasted five hours and 44 minutes. Josh Reddick drew a walk to lead off the 16th, and then moved […]

What’s Next for Nathan Horton?

Love that dirty water? So does Nathan Horton. So much so, that he had to bring it to Vancouver for the Bruins to win the Stanley Cup this past season. One of the best memories for Bruins’ fans will be Horton dumping TD Garden ice (melted into water) in front of the Bruins bench before […]

Bruins Try to Trade Tomas Kaberle, What’s Next?

With the Stanley Cup in its hands, the Boston Bruins have many roster moves to consider. Defenseman Tomas Kaberle is one of the few with high priority. Although, that priority might be moving his rights. On Tuesday, the Bruins sent out an email to all teams in the league saying that Kaberle’s negotiating rights were […]

Red Sox Honor Bruins, Beat Brewers 12-3; Buchholz Hits DL

These aren’t your father’s Red Sox. No, these are the Red Sox who have learned from the fellow sports teams in Boston on how to win. Before the game, the Red Sox honored the Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins by holding their own duck boat parade around the Fenway warning track. After the mini-parade around the […]

Red Sox Rewind: Lester Unable to Reach 10 Wins; Crawford on DL

With Jon Lester on the mound, Red Sox fans expected another blowout on Saturday night. It turned out Randy Wolf got the best of the Sox hitters and the Brewers came away with the 4-2 victory. Lester surrendered back-to-back home runs to Rickie Weeks and Corey Hart to start off the first inning and Milwaukee never looked back. […]

What Could Have Been? Corey Brewer Nearly Chose Celtics

Although he has only appeared in a total of five playoff games for the Dallas Mavericks, Corey Brewer would have been a big piece in the Celtics rotation, had he signed in Boston. It was also a real possibility and came down to how many years each team was willing to give him. Dallas gave […]

Can an NBA Lockout-Shortened Season Benefit Aging Celtics?

35, 34, 36, 39, 25. Those numbers represent the ages of the Celtics’ starters if the season was to start in October. Rajon Rondo of course is the youngest at 25 and Shaquille O’Neal is the eldest at 39. (If you want to guess the other three go ahead, it doesn’t matter anyways). No matter how […]

What If? A Look At Celtics’ Recent Draft History

A day after the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Draft Lottery and will pick first in the 2011 NBA Draft, it’s time to look back on how the Celtics have done/not done this past decade in the draft. Of course, it’s natural for the Boston Celtics to flop on the draft lottery night. Historically, the […]

Krejci’s Goal in OT Lifts Bruins to 2-0 Lead; McQuaid Injured

How many shots do the Philadelphia Flyers need to take to get past Tim Thomas? Apparently not enough. After giving up two goals in the first period of Game 2 Monday night, Thomas was able to hold off the Flyers’ next 46 shots on goal. Forcing overtime, the hero this time for the Boston Bruins […]

Crawford’s Walk-Off Single Helps Red Sox Avoid Sweep

Well it’s official, the Red Sox having a winning record (in the month of May). After a sub-par first month of the season, the Red Sox have gotten off on the right foot to start May. On Sunday afternoon, Carl Crawford hit the walk-off single to score Jed Lowrie from third base to give Boston […]

Bruins Score Early, Hang on for 4-2 Victory (Finally)

It’s not over til…it’s actually over. The Boston Bruins made sure to make a statement Monday night in Montreal as they headed into Game 3 down 2-0 in the series. The Bruins came out strong in one of the toughest rinks to play at already in the hole and held on to get the 4-2 […]

Delonte West Injured In Celtics’ Loss to Wizards in OT

Wait, what? Yes that is correct, the Boston Celtics dropped yet another game to the Washington Wizards on Monday night. Of course it was the Celtics “B team” that handed the Wizards the 95-94 victory. With Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett out of action for Boston, the C’s bench just couldn’t […]
