    Did Spikes burn bridges?  Can't remember.  If the price is right, they could do worse.  At the very least he knows the system and BB knows his strengths.

    In response to LazarusintheSanatorium's comment: Yeaaa, they really just could've signed him.  It wasn't revis OR McCourty...not both.  Pats, even 2 weeks in to free agency were what?- 14 mil under th more »

    BB wanted Revis at his price, I don't believe the offer was done for PR purposes.  Revis knew he could get more elsewhere and used the Pats as leverage.  As soon as the Pats realised Revis was all but more »

    Victorino should let his play do the talking, assuming he can play through the injuries. If the Sox do trade a guy like Betts or any of their prospects for a pitcher it isn't going to be because they more »

    Revis got paid more than the Pats were willing to pay him, end of story.  There is no way the Jets weren't going to overpay for him, and it seems BB and crew realised it early on in the process.  To h more »

    This is a big offseason for Sullinger.  Needs to prove he can control himself at the table and dedicate himself to a strict offseason regimen.  I never heard anything but good things about him at Ohio more »

    He seems to have natural ability and if correctly diagnosing the rub route is any indication then it seems he is coachable and doesn't repeat mistakes.  For a guy with humble beginnings he seems to no more »

    I'm beginning to think that living his life "his way" is more important than losing 40 pounds and being a double-double machine.  If he could play 36 mins. he'd average 18 and 10.  Most guys three yea more »

    I am not one to harp on players, but Sullinger has got to realise that his future is very much dependent on his ability to get in and to stay in shape.  In three years he has yet to break 30 mpg and h more »

    Posted 03/24/2015 07:58:07 EDT

    Monroe might actually be a PF who wants to play like one.  Sullinger likes the jump shot too much, and he doesn't really need to be taking 3's.  If they got Monroe it would make Sullinger expendable.  more »

    Posted 03/23/2015 11:17:21 EDT

    I think Turner does OK.  He doesn't look to the drive and kick, more often he drives and either takes a mid-range shot or he looks to pass to the post.  He had Young on the perimeter wide open at time more »

    A competitive division is a good thing, wheter for the quality of the games televised  or because it keeps the Pats on their toes.  I am glad Rex is in Buffalo and they're trying to field a good team. more »

    I am not sure it made sense to retain Revis at his cost, but I won't be a hypocrite here and say that plan B is awful.  It'e easy to say "pay the guy" but then we see that C. Jones, Hightower and Coll more »

    When I'm out, I like to buy random people a drink at the pub just to see if they care to strike up a conversation about anything -- anything at all.  I met my girlfriend that way, but she's the one wh more »

    In response to crazy-world-of-troybrown's comment: I'm with you, a career .282 hitter, that hits great in the Clutch, Sox should wait this out. I agree.  I'd rather trade Victorino and eat some (Most? more »

  • Posted 03/17/2015 12:39:33 EDT

    Two quick thoughts (and not criticisms): The Sox dished out $130 million to have 2 of the top 20 prospects in their system. I would think that you dish out $72 million it's for a sure thing.  Is Rusne more »

    Losing two starting-calibre CBs doesn't make me feel great.  But I don't think FA is how BB will get a Revis and Browner replacement.  I think draft and trades is more likely.  I can't imagine BB does more »

    In November I thought this team would win 30 plus games this year and compete for the 8th seed - but I also assumed they'd have Rondo and Jeff Green to help them do it.  They lost one of their best pl more »

  • Forum Post: Bequette anyone?

    Posted 03/15/2015 11:54:19 EDT

    Bequette is perplexing.  There is a lot of time invested in this guy, albeit on the PS.  At some point he either shows his worth or he is cut.  I agree that BB must like something about him, but what more »

    If he was on the IR last year then I would have worried.  He played.  He showed up in a few spots.  He seems to be versatile enough to play DT and DE.  I think having the enitre offseason will help hi more »

    I think Amendola is a good match for the Pats.  Now we can stop calling him overpaid.  The guy did everything asked of him as a WR and KR.  Glad he's back.

    Vereen was a good player when healthy.  If he stays healthy you could argue he is worth that $.   He cashed in at an opportune time.  Let's see how healthy he stays in NY.

    Revis played the system perfectly.  Can't blame him for that, and I can't blame him for going back to the team that drafted him.  He got his ring and  a huge payday because he performed.  He controlle more »

    Zeller is a backup 5 and has exceeded expectatations.  Olynyk has his moments, but he can be inconsistent.  Still think KO's best basketball is ahead of him.
