Comment on: Patriots defeat the New York Jets, but win comes with questions - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/22/2012 08:05:34 EDT
Isn't it time to look at the coaching on this team. It seems like both the coordinators are in a funk, particularly the defense. There was no flow to the offense for most of the game yesterday. Two ru more »
Comment on: Dan Shaughnessy: Sports people always remember - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/10/2012 09:38:53 EDT
Dan, Thanks for a great column. What a tribute. All of us who have lost their fathers have a lump in our throats as we read these great words. Despite what year they died they are never forgotten. I w more »
Comment on: Ben Cherington plays blame game - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 10/04/2012 05:09:04 EDT
Cherington should suffer the same fate as Valentine. If he does stay, he should be empowered to hire the Manager he wants and then let the Manager hire his own staff. If he doesn't get the power to be more »
Comment on: Manager Valentineâs status is big Red Sox question - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 09/03/2012 07:48:03 EDT
Nick, If they do fire Valentine, please stay out of the Manager Sweepstakes. If I recall properly one of the biggest boosters for hiring Bobby V was a gent named Cafardo. This was the same person wh more »
Comment on: Red Sox owners look good comparatively - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 08/14/2012 08:20:21 EDT
Never thought, Old Nick would end up being a sycophant for Sox ownership, or become devoid of logic. We all should feel a lot better because we don't stink as bad as the Pirates and the Padres. Give m more »
Comment on: Stonehill College dragged into Yahoo scandal - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/16/2012 10:14:03 EDT
"Faking a computer science major from Stonehill in the 1970s is like falsely bragging that you were a star quarterback in college - on an MIT intramural team." Despite your attempt to compliment Stone more »
Comment on: This plea by Gammons is revealing in itself - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/20/2012 01:06:39 EDT
With the proliferation of news media covering sports, it was refreshing and enlightening to read Bob Hohler's article last year. I wasn't aware of Gammons' remarks, but they are indicative of the chum more »
Comment on: Red Sox would have been better off with Bard - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/05/2012 05:05:08 EDT
Nick, Get over it. Nice try being Peter Gammons, but obviously no one is listening to you. You did get your wish with Bobby V being named Manager. It looks like you don't agree with him even before th more »
Comment on: Wes Welkerâs price is going up - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/15/2012 12:32:10 EDT
Greg Bedard is probably one of the top three NFL beat writers alive today, but I don't follow hiis logic in this story. He is acting like he works for ESPN. Today's analysis on paying Welker is a mile more »
Comment on: Bailey picks up a save for fans - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/10/2012 07:26:05 EST
No one ever accused Papelbon of being a Rocket Scientist. Why should we listen to him now. Take your money and run. Show a little class big Jon. more »
Comment on: Not all Red Sox fans in Bobby Valentineâs camp - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/29/2012 01:53:43 EST
Nick, must have been a slow day. Hopefully, tomorrow you will return to your usal Pulitzer level reporting. more »
Comment on: US apologies sound empty - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/27/2012 04:00:09 EST
One would think that Mr. Carroll condones the murder of American forces by insurgents because somehow that American troops don't understand Islam as well as Mr. Carroll does from his safe perch above more »
Comment on: Epstein relishes challenge in Chicago - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/24/2012 01:13:31 EST
Epstein did really good things for the Sox and should be congratulated, but he left the franchise in a mess, and many of his mistakes still haunt the team. His record of signing free agents was abysma more »
Comment on: The Homegoing of a Lonely Eagle - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/07/2012 02:32:46 EST
Where do we get such men? How these men fought and died for their country despite the injustice and discrimination they endured is almost too inconprehensible to fathom. Thank you, Mr. Saunders. May y more »
Comment on: The day of reckoning - Metro - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/05/2012 04:37:00 EST
Disappointing column. I think Peter King wrote the same thing a couple of weeks ago in his Sports Illustrated MMQ column. I am sure the Patriots will be more interested in doing their jobs. Column wou more »
Comment on: Tim Thomasâs absence left Bruins shorthanded - Sports - The Boston Globe
Posted 01/24/2012 07:48:17 EST
What an inane column. Thomas doesn't like the President's politics. As the only American born player on the team he would have had to play a more prominent role than anyone else. At least he had the c more »

Slow Sports news day, Dan? more »
Comment on: 'Damon must have his reasons, but what are they?'
Posted 08/25/2010 09:14:21 EDT
Just goes to show you in what dire straits the Red Sox are in when we are counting on Johnny Damon to lead us to the playoffs. Real reason, Dice K already had his number 18. This was a block move, The more »
Comment on: 'The tipping point for the voters'
Posted 01/21/2010 04:08:32 EST
Two basic lessons to be learned for politicians, never underestimate the collective wisdom of the American people, and never take voters for granted. It appears that Senator (elect) Brown understood w more »
Comment on: 'Balanced approach is a big deal for Epstein, Red Sox'
Posted 12/06/2009 05:32:59 EST
Now I know why we compete against the Yankees with Nick Green at shortstop, and are still paying Julio Lugo to play for the Cardinals. I also know why we are building for the future by signing John Sm more »
Comment on: 'Play of defense leaves it open to questions'
Posted 12/01/2009 04:35:18 EST
The Pats will finish 12-4. Last night's game was one of those things. We finished 16-0 and where did that get us. Like the Blues Brothers we need to put the band back together. Bring back Charley Weis more »
Comment on: 'Roster miscues rest with Belichick'
Posted 10/21/2009 05:52:07 EDT
What? This column won't be a candidate for the Pulitzer. Too bad Reiss left for ESPN. Maybe the Tennessee Titans need a beat reporter. Not your best work Christopher! more »
Comment on: 'Martinez is helping Sox to be victorious'
Posted 09/07/2009 08:43:20 EDT
A telling point on Martinez, he catches Tim Wakefield, and Tek doesn't. The Sox had to carry Doug Mirabelli to make up the difference. What does all that say about defensive ability. It appears all th more »
Comment on: 'Buchholz’
Posted 08/03/2009 10:49:53 EDT
New catcher; long layoff because of run production; abused child syndrome; Nick Cafardo is picking on him. Give me a break. The kid stunk yesterday. He wasn't pitching against the '27 Yankees; it was more »
Comment on: 'Sox fired two in steroids case'
Posted 08/02/2009 08:01:45 EDT
The Spotlight Team used to mean something. It used to uncover stories like the clergy abuse scandal. Today's story was unfortunate in the manner it was reported. Is this the result of the financial di more »
