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?

Picks:

I’m taking the Phillies, over the Braves.

I’m taking the Brewers, over the Cubs.

April Fool’s!

So, shall i get started?

Will it be 28? The Yankees looked awfully good yesterday in their 6-3 win over Detroit, but the question remains, will they continue to win? They have the record for most consecutive Opening Day home wins, with 11!  That’s not too good, is it?  Anyways, Curtis Granderson made two great grabs in the outfield yesterday, and hit a game opening home run!  He was the player of the game in my eyes.

Real life Shark attack. Now that the playoffs are closing in on the NHL, every point counts, and usually games usually turn into low-scoring affairs, but in San Jose’s case, this was not true.  They dethroned Dallas winning 6-0, which must have pained Hawks fans because former Hawk Niemi had the shut out, and Ben Eager (former Chicago player) was the third star of the game… Great management Chicago!

Pick!

Chicago White Sox at Cleveland Indians The White Sox are my suprise team this year, and I actually am going to do a few features on them here and there… They open up the season at Cleveland, with Buerhle on the mound.  Watch for Alexei Ramirez, as he will probably have another great season! White Sox win.

Other games to pick with no caption (winner of mine is in bold)

Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates The Cubs are the home team in this one, yes I did add a caption… I had an article up earlier about how the Cubs will have a decent season, but still fall short of any prize of which eyes have been set on.. So, it shouldn’t surprise you that I am taking the Pirates.

Houston Rockets at Philadelphia Phillies

Boston Red Sox at Texas Rangers
