Fresh Links: Thin Blue Line

No, we are NOT talking law enforcement, here The Avalanche scored five unanswered goals, overcame a 3-1 deficit, and beat the Bruins 6-3. The biggest loss may have been an injury to Zdeno Chara. The good news? A David Pastrnak goal, a pair from Jake DeBrusk, and David Backes finally has an assist. The bad news? Where to begin... WEEI The big news is the injury to the Bruins’ captain. Bruins Daily Zdeno Chara was reported to have been seen leaving the game “with a limp and a brace under his suit...” and the Bruins are left minus 3 of their top Dmen and without 3 of their prime...

The Celtics solve their first half woes vs. Bulls

The Celtics solve their first half woes vs. Bulls

The Celtics have been the worst second-quarter team in basketball so far this season. Finally, mercifully, we all collectively found a reason to exhale last night. Look, the Bulls are the Bulls. They’re one of the Eastern Conference’s worst teams and the Celtics’ 29-point margin of victory last night is more or less what you’d expect from such a match-up. The Celtics are expected to be a great team, and great teams should excel against bad ones. Nobody’s going to remember that win in the grand scheme of Boston’s 2018-19 campaign; it’s just what was expected. Still, some...

Alex Cora has a new contract, now it’s time to keep the magic going

Alex Cora has a new contract, now it’s time to keep the magic going

Alex Cora’s tenure with the Red Sox is obviously off to a tremendous start, but he has to keep it going. You won’t find a single soul that says Alex Cora doesn’t deserve the contract extension and assumed raise the Red Sox just gave him. To be fair, it wasn’t a big extension. The Red Sox basically just added an extra year onto his current contract, meaning he’s locked up through the 2021 season. But it was a nice little gesture of respect from the organization to the man who just completed his first season at the helm, and honestly, it was the least they could do. In just one...

2018 in Review: Heath Hembree

2018 in Review: Heath Hembree

I think I’m getting off the Hembree train Welcome to the Red Sox Review series. It’s a fairly standard feature in which we will review the year that was for every player who made a decently large impact on the Red Sox this year. How do I come up with that definition? Completely arbitrarily, of course! The list of players I’m using can be seen here, and if I am missing anyone please let me know in the comments. Anyway, for the players who are included we will wrap up their season in a sentence, look at the positives of their 2018, the negatives, review their One Big Question from the...

Brown, Tatum play to offensive strengths in win vs. Bulls

Brown, Tatum play to offensive strengths in win vs. Bulls

After hearing all pre-season about Boston’s offensive versatility, the Celtics have started to find their spots on the floor. There were some offensive staples that Brad Stevens knew he could count on. The Kyrie Irving-Al Horford pick-and-roll. The Celtics’ perimeter shooting eventually finding its level. Gordon Hayward’s all-around talent. And of course, Aron Baynes being a three-point marksman. The versatility of the Celtics starting lineup was supposed to be their main strength; anybody could be a playmaker, anybody could be a finisher. However, that versatility has largely...

Red Sox sign Juan Centeno to minor-league deal

Red Sox sign Juan Centeno to minor-league deal

Feel the excitement This news is a couple days old at this point, but I just straight-up missed it. On Tuesday, though, the Red So added a bit to their catching depth with a minor-league signing. As first reported by Chris Cotillo of Masslive, Boston agreed to a minor-league deal with catcher Juan Centeno. Centeno is clearly not going to be the most exciting player acquired by the Red Sox this winter, but it is an interesting move. The Red Sox, as we’ve talked about, have three major-league catchers at the moment but that isn’t likely to last too long. It seems probable that one of...
