Sorry I haven't wrote in a bit, I have been super busy and away. But here's a recap of my opinions:
1. The Boston Celtics. I know this summer hasn't gone the way we wanted it to. No fireworks, no Love, no Melo, no Rondo trade but it is what it is. Wyc said you need 2 to tango and if no other team is willing to give Danny what he wants, why make a trade? The signing of Evan Turner is a great low risk signing. I have no idea where he is going to play as we have a very loaded back court with Rondo, Bradley, Smart, Thornton, and at SF we have Jeff Green, Gerald Wallace, and James Young. I guess we can tell Thronton and Wallace to sit way at the end of the bench and I have a feeling Young will not play a lot this year, so there could be room.
I think Turner got a raw deal here. He did average 17 points with the Sixers last year before traded. There is talent there he just didn't live up to the number 2 selection. Maybe I am a bit biased here because it seemed like Evan Turner played very well against the Celtics in the playoffs. But who knows, maybe he's just Jeff Green 2 and a cocktease in night in and night out.
2. The Red Sox...... Championship?
I know they lost last night but it seems as if things are coming together. They are 8.5 back... which is a lot. But are 8-2 in the last 10. I have zero clue if this is due to AJ Fuckface leaving, but it seems like it did something. I might still get rid of some pieces if you can in Peavy, Drew, Gomes, etc. But I'm starting to buy into this team.
Also Jon Lester.... The Sox are fucked with him. He is pricing himself out of the Sox every pitch he throws. The Sox obviously got too cute with negotiations and now are paying for it. Now the Sox will have to overpay him on years if they resign him. Also I am all for trading for Hammels if thats the case. Hammels is basically the same thing as Lester and he is on a contract that we would want Lester to have. If worse comes to worse a swap of Hammels for Lester isn't drastic.
5. Tony Dungy is an asshole. Supports Michael Vick and then talks about Michael Sam and how he wouldn't draft him because he's gay. Tony Dungy will get hardly any flack for this after a month. I don't get it. But the next time people refer to Dungy as the next Mother Theresa I will always think of this.
6. Also David Ortiz over Yaz, Williams and any Red Sox name you throw out there.
David Ortiz is obviously better then yaz that isn't a debate. And although Ted Williams was pretty damn good and lost 5 years tot he war, Ortiz is far better then him too. He has the hardware and has played in a era that has better talent and I know Ted Williams WS stats should be thrown out due to him not being healthy due to an elbow injury, Ortiz's October stats can't be matched and that's all that matters.
"But DP Yaz and Ted played the field too"
DP "Fuck off"
