    Agreed that officiating for the Broner fight was piss poor. He wouldn't let Molina put his head down to get inside and that seemed to really throw off his game plan. What his exact game plan was, I couldn't tell you because they have to censor the corners between rounds. I usually enjoy hearing...

    Pretty solid start for this series. My one complaint - NBC really needs to reevaluate their commentators for these broadcasts.

    No, he has a fight coming up with Fonfara in April. Yesterday after the fight he was calling out GGG on Twitter to move up to 168 and he'd bet a million dollars that he'd knock him out. http://www.boxingnews24.com/2015/02/chavez-jr-to-golovkin-i-bet-you-1-million-ill-knockout-you-out/

    Well, that was a lot more entertaining than I expected. The fight showed a lot of flaws for Golovkin, although you'd never know from the broadcast's account. I'd love to see a GGG/Cotto or GGG/Chavez Jr fight get made next. I don't think he'd be able to walk thru the punches he did yesterday...

    Underrated Superbowl Moments

    I was going to post this article. It touches on a lot of small things that I missed during the first viewing. Hightower shedding that block and being able to even get a hand on Lynch is a superhuman effort.

    Dan Rafael reporting that a deal for Mayweather vs Cotto 2 is imminent. I know I shouldn't be surprised, but this is very disappointing.

    Trading for Starting Pitching

    Just to nip this Sale possibility in the bud - White Sox signing David Robertson to a Papelbon-type deal indicate they're in full GFIN mode. I don't see Sale becoming available. http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2014/12/white-sox-to-sign-david-robertson.html

    Lemeiux/Rosado tonight should make for an entertaining fight. Rosado is always a tough out, and Lemeiux has some pop. I wouldn't be surprised to see this go the distance or maybe a late stoppage due to Rosado's bleeding and cut issues that we've seen in the past. Either way, not a bad fight for...

    Well the Pacquiao fight went pretty much as I expected. Manny looked good (fast/good footwork), but seemed to allow a lot of right hands get through on him. I don't know if that is due to Algieri's style or is more of a defensive flaw. Is there any chance Mayweather might be less reluctant to...

    Trading Jon Lester (news and speculation thread)

    Furthermore, if he's able to get another WS ring wherever he goes for the next 3 months that can only increase his demand.

    After watching GGG dismantle Geale, I was pretty bummed that the fight with Chavez Jr didn't happen. That would be a great match up of GGG's power and Chavez's iron chin. It also would do a hell of a lot more to legitimize Golovkin if he was able to dispatch Chavez in the same way he has with...

    Trading Jon Lester (news and speculation thread)

    That's true in some cases, but I'd like to believe that Cherrington would be more diligent if he were going to making a deal like this.

    Trading Jon Lester (news and speculation thread)

    I wouldn't think that would be a major issue for Kemp if he is as unhappy there as sources are saying. A change of scenery might be more important to him at this point than what position he'd be playing. That said, I'm not on board with the trade unless LA is absorbing a large portion of that...

    Red Sox Deadline Discussion

    I agree that he's worth more than Peavy or Soria, but I just don't think the teams that are in the market for BP help this year will be willing to part with a top prospect plus for someone that will undoubtedly test the market.

    A top prospect plus for Miller? I think they might be over playing their hand here. It would be great if it worked, but I don't see anyone doing that for bullpen help for 2 months.

    Toucher and Rich --- Everyone Else Has Some Work To Do

    I ran into Adolfo last night and talked with him a bit about the show. He said they were initially having a tough time with the transition into sports talk (which was pretty obvious), but now they feel like they're running a little more smoothly. They feel like they're starting to hit their...

    Yup, that's the one. I totally forgot the "The Hammer" was the same scumbag to kill Kellerman with a hammer.

    The one boxing incident of disgusting sportsmanship that stands out in my mind was, I believe at a ballroom boxing show in NYC that was on Espn2. The losing fighter sucker-punched the winner (without gloves on) as the ref was raising his arm in victory. I can't remember the fighter's names but...
