Give Ray His Way and Let Him Stay

The Case for Shopping Rajon Rondo

Let’s jump in the DeLorean, fire up the Flux Capacitor, and take a trip back in time. Sorry, ancient Rome will have to wait. I’m more interested in conducting a social experiment in the recent past.

A Penny Saved is a Penny Lost

As every day trader knows, the key to success is having a knack for buying low and selling high. As far as Brad Penny is concerned, the Red Sox have likely missed their chance to execute this most basic of strategies. Signing Penny was an excellent move. Although coming off an injury-plagued season, it was […]

The Glen Davis Scenarios

What is going on with Glen “Big Baby” Davis and the Celtics?

Why are the Celtics Itching to Trade Rondo?

Last night I witnessed greatness unfold when my LSU Tigers came back to defeat the University of Texas in Game One of the College World Series. The game would need extra frames to decide the outcome, as Matty “Ice” Ott came in and put an end to the madness in the 11th inning. So as […]

Red Sox Interested in Ryan Spilborghs?

According to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, three teams, including the Red Sox, have inquired about the services of outfielder Ryan Spilborghs.
