Lots of sports coverage coming your way these next three days, great way to start it off? Making some picks, and posting a short article about the Boston Red Sox.
All was well in Boston this off-season, in January the Celtics were atop the Eastern Conference standings, the Bruins had great goal-tending on their side, and the Red Sox were slated by many to go to the World Series, if not win it.
Only that was January, this is April. The Boston Celtics still are going to make the playoffs as a high seed, probably as the second seed, possibly the third seed. Only it is obvious that the Chicago Bulls are far superior to them, as they just were stomped on in a 97-81 loss to Chicago just last night. Clearly Chicago is their certain superior.
Boston is currently 0-6, no team with that bad a start has ever gone onto a World Series, albeit I believe all will be well there eventually, that kind of start is just unacceptable for a program who goes out and spends over 100 million dollar’s on player salaries.
Their hitting is supposed to be their strong point, and as a whole, fewer teams have hit at a lower average than Boston. Hey Terry, how’s Crawford doing for you?
Will either Boston team make it to a championship? Is Derrick Rose the MVP?
I’m taking the Phillies, over the Braves.
I’m taking the Brewers, over the Cubs.
