Bruins Clinch Playoff Spot With Win Over Flyers

Coming off a tough 1-0 loss to the Rangers, the Bruins were still in good shape. If they beat the Flyers on the second game of a back-to-back Sunday, they would clinch a playoff spot for the fourth straight year. Mission accomplished. After falling behind 1-0, the resilient Bruins scored two unanswered goals, capped off […]

TGIF: 2009 Fantasy Football Playoff Help

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeeeaaaarrrrrr! With no disrespect to Any Williams, I am not referring to Christmas. Instead, I am celebrating the fantasy football playoffs. While it looks like that my teams will be watching from the sidelines this season (thank you Steve Slaton, Jay Cutler, Eddie Royal, Eli Manning…what the hell!), […]

Predicted scores will be the tie-breaker: First, the number of Patriots points (whichever tied team is closest). Second, the number of Giants points (whichever tied team is closest). Third, if still tied, the number of total points overall (whichever tied team is closest). The improbable happened…but if it’s any consolation, Chris won our little Expert […]

Red Sox Sweeping by the Rockies

Daisuke Matsuzaka got his second win of the playoffs last night as Boston continued to roll right by the Colorado Rockies. The Red Sox have not lost in a World Series in the new regimes era. Are the Red Sox the best team in baseball? I’ve said they are before, maybe this will be it. […]

Schilling and Red Sox Roll-Up Rockies, Onto Coors

Schilling, Okajima and Papelbon are all the Red Sox needed tonight. That and two runs scored by the offense. When the offense had easily carried the team when Beckett wasn’t pitching, its refreshing to see the pitching hold down the game. The last game Schilling started he got 10 runs of support. Easily enough to […]

The Red Sox Rock the Rockies: Boston the Best Team in Baseball?

Before this series reaches Game 2 or any further I’d like to take a stand and pick a side. I love the Boston Red Sox. Although I remain non-biased on how good they actually are. But if I had to put together at this point an argument why the Boston Red Sox are the best […]

Finally the Sox are hitting. Now Lowell who has struggled… Lowell with a single to right in the first and… Manny gets thrown out […]

Game 3: Red Sox vs Cleveland Indians In-Game Report

Daisuke Matsuzaka(15-12, 4.40) vs Jake Westbrook(6-9, 4.32) UPDATES ALL GAME. I’ll be updating every couple minutes or so. Its going to be an interesting game to see which pitcher steps up for their team. Dice-K looks shart in the 1st inning, striking out two. He started hot in the Angels game too and blew up […]

Boston Red Sox Win Game 1: Boston Dominates 10-3

C.C. Sabathia was awful tonight. Beckett was great. Boston’s offense was awesome. And after Game 1 Boston has all the momentum and Cleveland needs to start something. Another News Alert: David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez are still hot. Both had two hits along with Kevin Youkilis. Youkilis, Ortiz, and Ramirez in total scored 7 runs. […]
