I’ve abstained from officially putting anything ‘out’ about DeflateGate, Tom Brady, the Wells Report and all that Jazz…..but this is just too good and it’s Media Frenzy Gold. Every day between Mother’s Day and today I’ve started to write something and then said – nahhh…..don’t bleed your bias onto a piece. Let’s face it, I’m about as unbiased as the Wells Report. Again I said about, not more probable than not because face itI’m much more open minded, even after I’ve been hitting heavy from the homer soup.
It’s not time to press the panic button yet, but it may be time to start looking at it. Last night the Red Sox lost to the Yankees in what became a close game….but it wasn’t close for most of the night.
Pitching for the Red Sox was ‘Cy Young McGee’, Joe Kelly who is probably out of the Cy Young race already. It’s strange to watch Kelly pitch, his stuff is disgusting, he can rear it up to 100 and has devastating throws, except baseball, especially pitching- like real estate or even just life- is about location, location, location. Kelly can’t seem to locate, so every once in a while (and by that I mean quite often) he throws Home Run Derby meatballs.
At least we get to see if the kid can be good in the Majors
It was a balmy 52 degrees and somehow the rain cleared at perfectly the right time (hey I was running late – 6:10 starts suck). Joe Kelly, the clear Cy Young Forerunner, provided a strong passable borderline start...
Kelly was reaching as high as 100 on the radar gun –be it accurate or not – but he was getting rocked like a 1st Grader being sucker punched by a 5th Grader. He minimized the damage, to only a Pearl Harbor like event. First inning Field Goal – great 3rd out hold. But none of the struggles seem to matter….
There aren’t many players who were considered as the best during any of point of the careers of Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain. That number only decreases when those two legends were in their respective primes.
Regarded as one of the top players during an era filled with players of legendary caliber, is now a shadow among casual fans who have no real appreciation nor understanding of his career and achievements, This article will be dedicated to Elgin Baylor and why he is up with anyone to play the game.
Last night the playoff chances for the defending champion Boston Red Sox, a team that has been free falling for the last month and a half, hit the ground with a large THUD and shattered like a pumpkin hitting the concrete. The Sox got blown out by an embarrassing 14-1 score by the Toronto Blue Jays and added an exclamation point to what Boston fans already knew but were afraid to admit: this season is a lost cause. It’s over. It’s time to strip the team of useful resources and get ready for the 2015 season, and the first domino to fall should be Jon Lester.
This week’s loser is Chiefs quarterback, Alex Smith.
As you’ve probably guessed, I’m not a big Alex Smith guy. I don’t hate him, and I don’t think he’s a bad quarterback, but I think he is painfully overrated. He’s 30 years old and has been in the league for eight years, and he’s thrown more than 20 touchdowns ONCE- last season he threw 23. He has topped the 3,000 yard plateau only twice in an era where it is DESIGNED for the quarteback to throw for at least 4,000 yards. So given all of this, how am I supposed to believe that he is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL when he’s the third-best quarterback in his own division?
