    Celtics Sign Tacko Fall

    New Haven had a USBL team at the time and a couple of us went to the old New Haven Coliseum to see the Rhode Island team just for the spectacle. Bol played college ball at the University of Bridgeport so there was media hype about his return. I remember we were disappointed that Spud Webb didn't...

    RIP Bill Buckner

    The ovation he received when he returned in 1990 was really special. I know that ground ball will live in infamy, but the man played hard and played hurt and deserves to be remembered as the tough, good ball player he was for the Red Sox.

    Thank you, Malcolm Mitchell

    He spoke at my wife's elementary school last spring. He told the students the inspiring story about his life growing up and then read his book aloud to the school. We got to meet him afterward as he signed copies of the book and he came across as a generally great guy and role-model. Too bad his...

    The Game Ball Thread: Week 16 vs Buffalo

    Thought the DL played well. Buffalo had no running game and they contained Allen well so GB. Edit: or what j44thor said first.

    2018 Draft: Patriots and QBs

    I'm really hoping the late first round, early second round picks are traded back to pick up more draft capital in rounds 2-4. With all the team needs that have been highlighted, including future starting QB, the extra picks are more valuable, I think. The team has a history of drafting...

    Should MLB Have an Amnesty Clause?

    I’d think the players union would be in favor of this for that exact reason. If Red Sox could shed a $20 million albatross contract, now they’re putting that money back into the free agent market, driving up contract prices. Big win for the players.

    Free Agency Game Thread

    Not worried about Dola at all. The Dolphins will cut him mid-season when the realize he's isn't an every down player. He'll re-sign with the Patriots to fill the inevitable holes caused by attrition, and make several clutch playoff catches as the Pats go to the Super Bowl. Again.

    2017 Patriots Roster Move News ONLY

    I know we have a thread for a projected 53-man roster but I thought I'd start a catch-all thread for the flurry of moves coming in the next couple days. Mods, if you think this is redundant please delete.

    Patriots 53-man Roster Projections

    Pretty bold prediction by Redoctober to leave Brisett off the 53-man roster, but I don't think it's that far-fetched. If Brissett hasn't made the second-year jump Belichick talks about, he may just view him as a sunk cost and move on. As for guys like Freeney and Grissom and Fleming, they seem...

    One season or fewer: your favorite short-term Red Sox.

    Stretching the rules a bit, but in 1987, I thought Sam Horn was going to be the anchor of the next great Sox offense. Yeah, not so much.

    The Game Ball Thread: Wk. 16 vs Jets

    Brady played through most of the third quarter and Garoppolo had 15 snaps. Mike Reiss over at Espn.com/boston updated the snap counts this morning. I don't want to cut-and-paste a long block of text, but if you shoot over there you can check it out.

    Just checked schedule and Baltimore and Toronto have a series coming up, so nothing bad can come out of that, right?

    2016 Roster News & Reactions

    I was just coming to post the opposite. I think Dobson gets cut regardless of the Martin and Mitchell injuries. There are several guys who seem to have special teams value that I bet the Pats would like to hang on to, at least while other rosters and practice squads are being churned/finalized...

    The Left Field Solution

    This may be devolving into a playoff roster thread (too soon to start thinking about it?) but there should be a spot for a specialist like Roberts,'or Moncada, on a playoff roster. Since you need at most four starters, a bullpen with seven guys is more than enough for a series with off-days...

    The Left Field Solution

    Thanks. I was trying to imagine a scenario where they are able to squeeze both Benintendi and Moncada onto the 25-man roster prior to 9/1 to make them playoff eligible.
