The Patriots wrapped up their preseason schedule with a 16-13 loss to the New York Giants. Jimmy Garoppolo went wire-to-wire in this one and had his moments, both good and bad. While some are ready to just hand him the backup QB job and get rid of Ryan Mallett, we likely won't know for at … Continue reading Patriots Wrap Preseason Slate, Cuts Tomorrow
https://twitter.com/bruceallen/status/504601326979137538 It continually amazes me how much Bill Belichick and the Patriots get mocked and criticized by the media and fans, yet continue to win around 80% of their games. Criticized for the Mankins pick, and now criticized for the Mankins trade. How could you draft this guy there? becomes How could you trade this … Continue reading Pats Bollix It Up Again
Is the Red Sox season over yet? It's really hard to believe what has happened at Fenway Park this season, perhaps even more difficult to believe what happened last season at Fenway Park. What went wrong with Xander Bogaerts & Jackie Bradley? - Peter Abraham has an excellent look at one of the biggest issues … Continue reading Red Sox Continue Dismal Season, Third Preseason Game For Patriots
August isn't a whole lot of fun in the sports landscape, especially when the Red Sox are already out of contention. Hockey and Basketball are still weeks away. The seemingly endless grind of training camp and preseason football drones on. It's also the time when most sports radio hosts take some time off before the … Continue reading Random Monday In August
It is hardly surprising in this day and age of sports shock talk that hosts attempting to bring attention to themselves would attack the most revered Red Sox player of the last 30 years. Yesterday and this morning, both 98.5 FM (Felger and Mazz) and WEEI (Kirk Minihane) made, at the very least, strong suggestions … Continue reading Boston Radio Hosts Accuse Pedro Martinez of Steroid Use
Five years ago, WEEI was still riding high. They had stomped attempts to challenge them in the forms of 1510 the Zone and ESPN590. In February of that year, Chad Finn wrote a column for the Boston Globe OT that was eerily prescient in what it had to say about WEEI and its future. Maybe … Continue reading Five Years Of 98.5 The SportsHub – How The Landscape Has Changed.
The Patriots looked bad last night against the Redskins, and none worse than Ryan Mallett who struggled his way to a 5-12, 55 yard performance. I think that only in New England does the media use the backup quarterback as a way to make snide remarks about the coach. The last few days have been … Continue reading Painful Night In Landover for Patriots, Viewers

Kirk Minihane returned to the WEEI airwaves this morning off of his one-week suspension. His return was considerably more low-key than his previous return. Probably a prudent move. With Gerry Callahan out this morning, Minihane was sitting in the number two seat, and John Dennis joked that when he is out, Minihane will likely sit … Continue reading The Triumphant Return of Kirk Minihane, Take 2.
For the second time in three seasons Ben Cherington gutted his Red Sox squad in the middle of the season. The Sox GM made four trades yesterday, sending out Jon Lester, Johnny Gomes, John Lackey, Andrew Miller and Stephen Drew off of the major league roster. The trades started fairly early with the Lester deal … Continue reading Red Sox Keep Media Busy on Trade Deadline Day
