Comment on: Like many others, USOC was captivated by Boston
Posted 01/08/2015 10:16:36 EST
Great column Dan. You nailed the essence of Boston in regards to sports. I'm on the fence. If financially, it goes through as the plan says -- no public money except for what's already planned for tra more »
Comment on: How Globe writers voted in Baseball Hall of Fame election
Posted 12/23/2014 06:18:20 EST
I like Shaughnessy's ballot best and Cafardo's ballot least. more »
Comment on: After narrow win, how do you like Patriotsâ chances? Do you feel better or worse about Patriotsâ chances?

Comment on: Efforts to regulate CEO pay gain traction
Posted 10/25/2014 08:18:07 EDT
Think about it for a moment. CEO pay is salary. Salaries are expenses regardless if you're paying the boss or the worker. Are you telling me if you own a business, that you should pay taxes on gross i more »
Comment on: Still no way to rank Peyton Manning and Tom Brady

"Manning is Coke. Brady is Pepsi. Manning is cheese pizza. Brady is pepperoni."Works for me because I prefer Pepsi and pepperoni pizza. more »
Comment on: Red Sox, World Cup: A whole lot of nothing - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 07/02/2014 12:08:38 EDT
jibbets, So Shaughnessy is a sports writer. What does that have to do with anything? Does that mean he has to like every sport? Weakest argument yet. I loved Shaughnessy's columns and have mostly agre more »
Posted 07/02/2014 11:23:29 EDT
jibbets, you proved my point. Why do I have to enjoy the fact that so many people are enjoying it. For that matter, how do you even know whether or not I enjoy soccer. Where did I write I didn't enjoy more »
Posted 07/02/2014 10:46:29 EDT
Some of the comments on his story prove his point. The U.S. team was absolutely so overhyped, real soccer fans should be embarrassed. In case anyone didn't notice, the U.S. team progressed further in more »
Comment on: Soccer, he doesnât get a kick out of it - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 06/22/2014 01:31:57 EDT
Ridiculous. A reporter covering the White House isn't covering Massachusetts state politics, which is still politics, just like soccer is one of many sports. He's not the only sports writer at the Glo more »

Couldn't agree with Dan more, although I'll follow the U.S. team. Might even watch parts of some games -- clicking back and forth. My problem with soccer has has always been the fans. If you say you d more »
Comment on: Patriots giving NuâKeese Richardson a second chance - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/17/2014 01:43:57 EDT
Pahokee High School is the same high school that Anquan Bolden went to. And to say Pahokee is an economically depressed area is a huge understatement. One year when Pahokee got upset in the playoffs i more »

Comment on: Leigh Montville back to write a column for Globe - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 11/11/2013 01:15:32 EST
Leigh, great to have you back. Globe took a hit when Bob Ryan retired and started writing just once a week. I look forward to when I see his column, and now I can look forward to yours. And I might be more »
Comment on: 'These Bruins will be frozen in time forever'
Posted 06/19/2011 05:32:31 EDT
Oh and one thing to add about Jacobs. I have over the years been as vocal as any fan about Jacobs' faults as an owner. But now is not the time to berate him for the past. This is the time to cheer eve more »
Posted 06/19/2011 05:30:17 EDT
Good column. One thing. It should have been noted somewhere that the Bruins were without Marc Savard, if not their best offensive player when healthy then certainly their most creative playmaker. more »

1975 was the best Topps set and Delcarmen deserves at least a B+ if not an A. He's been great this year. more »
Comment on: 'Putting the pieces together'
Posted 07/09/2009 06:38:05 EDT
On the left side of the infield, there were a few games in 1976 when Bob Heise and Steve Dillard started (with Denny Doyle and Yaz at 2B and 1B). Then there was a game late in 1976 season that started more »
Comment on: 'With Matsuzaka, long time coming'
Posted 05/22/2009 10:07:56 EDT
Look at Jon Lester this year. In the games he's given up a bunch of runs, most came in one inning each game because he couldnt' get out of trouble. He'd load the bases then give up the big hits. Makes more »
Comment on: 'Red Sox' Ortiz hits a new low (0 for 7)'
Posted 05/15/2009 12:42:29 EDT
Forget about 35-36 when power hitters lose it. Throughout all eras, it's amazing the number of players who were suddenly done at 33-34. It really is amazing, and just because training techniques are s more »
Comment on: 'Just another act in the Manny sideshow'
Posted 05/07/2009 06:11:16 EDT
Hey motyelof, how many black pitchers are their today? But you're right. Every era has its baggage. Players back then also couldn't focus on training (legitimate training) like players today because t more »

Comment on: 'Red Sox' Youkilis sits out with tightness in his left side'
Posted 05/06/2009 11:17:35 EDT
Actually, I'm impressed that Papelbon has been perfect in his saves (with a strong ERA) despite allowing runners on base. I think that shows that he's more likely to get the WHIP down than he is to st more »

bigld57, that has to be one of the more ridiculous posts I've read. Just a couple of facts about Wake's career. ALWAYS does will in April-May into June then USELESS? Yes, last year he struggled in Aug more »
Comment on: 'Ortiz starting to hit stride'
Posted 04/23/2009 09:11:18 EDT
Yaz changed his stance when he got older but not every time he went into a slump. As for Dewey, he would change his stance from one at-bat to another. It wasn't until Hriniak stopped him from doing th more »
