Posted Tuesday June 25, 2013, About: Bergeron's broken rib just the half of it
I don't think you can lay this on Rask, almost all of the goals he gave up were on 2nd or 3rd attempts.

The critique on Crawford's glove side had more to do with the fact that about half of those were clean open looks that an elite goalie HAS to have.
Posted Friday June 21, 2013, About: Toews: We can out-work Chara
Of all the players on the B's I wouldn't want to poke too much to wake up it would be Chara. While Chicago has laid its fair share of hits in this series so far, the veracity of the hits that the Bruins have leveled against Chicago are substantially greater. Most of the goals scored against Rask in Game 4 were second or third chance goals and a result of substantial defensive breakdowns. Most of the goals against Crawford were clean, open looks. If the Bruins tighten up on defense like I expect, and continue to expose Crawford's diminishing confidence the series should continue to be a wild ride.

At the end of the second half, Brady was not under pressure when he threw the ball away which is required by rule for a call of intentional grounding.

The second part was called sarcasm. That one you can look up for yourself in a dictionary.

The first intentional grounding call was suspect...I heard that Golden Tate was in the vicinity and made a simultaneous call, and the NFL decided that while the call was wrong, they didn't want to spoil the "drama" that is the Seahawks season.

The Patriots D-line put pressure on Wilson all day long, the problem was the secondary getting caught watching those plays rather than their recievers.

The Seahawks got away with a handful of late, vicious hits. When a guy is on the ground and the play is dead, you can't just spear your head into the guys back.

Regardless, good job to the Seahawks for victimizing the Pat's secondary.
Posted Thursday March 22, 2012, About: RG3 deserves first-pick consideration
For every first round QB pick that fails, there is a sixth rounder waiting to head to the hall of fame. There are almost no predictors for success in the NFL at the QB position. Sure, you can find a guy who can throw, but if all he throws are interceptions he's no good, if he's fragile, he'll get hurt, etc, etc, etc. Taking a QB that high up has a pretty high failure rate.

He didn't say long term he said multi-year. I could see the celts giving him 2-3 at 15/year
Posted Wednesday July 20, 2011, About: Phillies, Sox chasing Beltran; price going up
Baseball is a long season, and 1 night isn't a harbinger. Any team, no matter how good they are will have an off night. Not every hit is a homerun, no pitcher will have a season ERA of 0.00, baseball is a game of averages.

Are you on crack? This had better have been sarcasm. Ellsbury, Pedroia, Gonzalez, Youkilis, and Ortiz are all hitting above or just below .300, collectively averaged at .306; with an average OPS of 0.910. I can't think of many teams that would be happy having more than half the lineup hitting like this.

The Beckett signing was to avoid luxury tax. By waiting to sign him during the season they saved themselves from bumping up to the next tax bracket.
