Comment on: Red Sox must decide on manager quickly - Red Sox - Boston.com
Posted 09/20/2012 09:07:01 EDT
Bobby V. or no, the players collectively don't have the right stuff to be competitive in the majors. What's more, they've shown that they won't play for any manager; even the reincarnation of Casey St more »
Comment on: Valentine calls Red Sox September roster 'weakest ever' - The Buzz - Boston.com sports news
Posted 09/14/2012 11:56:40 EDT
Valentine may be exaggerating, but the truth is this roster might not even be competitive at the AAA level. Everyone knows this.
Comment on: Panetta hints punishment for bin Laden book author - News - Boston.com
Posted 09/11/2012 09:53:31 EDT
If the author violated any signed agreements under which he served as a Navy SEAL, he could face legal charges. In any event, I'd rather that details about special forces means and methods be kept ina more »

Posted 09/10/2012 08:46:02 EDT
Commonwealth of Massachusetts laws prohibit discrimination of any kind in real estate transactions. The Church's attorney should have known better than to send that email, which constitutes clear evid more »

Glad to hear that Valentine offered Ordway a knuckle sandwich after that trash comment.
Comment on: Republicans plan to emphasize âbetter offâ question during Democratic convention - Boston.com

I'm an architect; my sole proprietor business is better off now than at the end of the Bush 43 presidency.
Comment on: Obama team planning robust national security pitch - Boston.com
Posted 09/03/2012 10:42:38 EDT
Why would Romney bring on a crew of discredited neocons as foreign policy advisors? Democrats can now tie him to failed Bush 43 policies; how is that going to win over the independent vote? Baffling. more »

Comment on: Enablers are at the heart of the problems with the Red Sox - Boston Sports Blog - Boston.com
Posted 08/15/2012 02:04:00 EDT
"Stop caring." Which is what I did last fall when the Sox stunk up the place and bailed on Francona. Betcha Varitek is glad to be rid of that circus. more »
Comment on: 'Brown praises Ryan, but keeps distance'
Posted 08/14/2012 10:50:53 EDT
Problem for Senators Scott Brown, Olympia Snowe, and other centrist Republicans is that their party has deserted them. It's obvious that Senator Brown privately wants nothing to do with Paul Ryan. more »

Tough stretch for Rafa. Appears now that the loss to Rosol was more than just a bad day. more »
Comment on: 'Blame to go around for Ray Allen and Celtics'
Posted 07/11/2012 10:48:41 EDT
Biggest reason no one's talking about for Allen to go to Miami? See all those uncontested perimeter shots that Chalmers, Battier and Miller had during the series? There's your reason. That'll be Ray A more »
Comment on: 'Allen agrees to a deal with Heat He’
Posted 07/07/2012 10:16:55 EDT
As a Celtics fan, I was hoping this wouldn't happen, but I knew it would; Miami's offense suits Ray Allen's game so much better. C's knew this as well, thus the signing of Jason Terry. But Ray's one o more »
Comment on: 'Terry, Celtics agree to 3-year deal'
Posted 07/05/2012 03:31:32 EDT
Didn't pick up on a Rondo/Allen disconnect. If that's the deal, then Ray's better off in Miami; Lebron James and Chris Bosh *will* get the ball to him for open spots. Don't know about Wade. I've been more »
Comment on: AP source: Allen to visit Heat on Thursday - Boston.com
Posted 07/03/2012 11:33:52 EDT
Hate to say it, but Miami's offense would give Allen twice the perimeter looks without sprinting the baseline and running his man off picks all game. That equals more in the tank to defend and run in more »
Comment on: Report: Mutual interest between Ray Allen, Heat -Celtics blog - Boston Globe basketball news
Posted 06/25/2012 10:55:37 EDT
Unfortunately, Miami might be a better fit for Ray Allen's game. Why? Miami's perimeter shooters, Miller, Battier and Chalmers, were getting *wide open* looks when James & Wade took it to the rim. In more »
Comment on: 'Celtics can handle the Heat'
Posted 06/23/2012 12:01:10 EDT
Had no idea why the Heat are generally despised outside of Miami; now I know. Other than LeBron James and Chris Bosh, got nothing good to say about the Heat, including GM & coach. Also, got nothing fo more »

Comment on: 'Danny Ainge wants to reload Celtics for another title run'
Posted 06/22/2012 02:35:10 EDT
I wouldn't bet against Ray Allen coming back to elite shooting form. He's the only proven Celtic #2 who has the right stuff (and how) at the perimeter. Bet the C's take a chance on the surgery suite ( more »

I turned off the TV halfway into the 3rd quarter; couldn't take one more minute of the refs deciding the outcome. Got better things to do with my time. more »
Comment on: 'Kendrick Perkins believes Celtics’
Posted 06/17/2012 11:25:39 EDT
Seems like the Celtics have been trying to find a 5 player to spell KG for years now. Didn't understand the Perkins trade then; still don't. If it works out this time, KG could still find himself in a more »

Suppose now I can get some sleep; been staying up way too late watching the C's playoff run and paying the price. Don't care what sport you choose; it doesn't get any better than this. :-) Seems to me more »
Comment on: 'Big calls to make on Three'
Posted 06/11/2012 04:18:43 EDT
Key to Celtic success next year is finding Big Bench; not dismantling the Big Three. Betting that Ray Allen's work ethic will see him successfully past surgery. Enjoyed watching Brandon Bass's game de more »
Comment on: 'Celtics lose to Heat in Game 7'
Posted 06/10/2012 09:43:15 EDT
The Celts flat-out amazed me with heads-up team play, coaching, and 110% effort. Thank you, Boston Celtics. Wish Jeff Green and Avery Bradley could have played. more »
