Thanks, Drew! You avoided a blitz of special interests who oppose this change, and you connected for a long touchdown over the middle!

One of the greatest Celtics ever. He grew big-time as a person and as a player here. No one ever deserved that ring or finals MVP more than our captain, Paul Pierce.

"I don't see me going through that rehab and coming back to pitch at this point in my life." When did 34 become old? If you can pitch a no-hitter, you have the ability to come back from a surgery. more »

The problem has definitely been, first, the lack of a shut-down defense at crucial moments and,second, the inability of the offensive line to protect Brady against strong pass rushes. The new cornerba more »

Maybe start with Victorino on the DL to give him a chance to recover all the way before he joins the team . . . give Sizemore and Bradley a chance to alternate, keep Sizemore healthy and give Bradley more »

A ridiculous article, full of the arrogance of pretending it is possible to forsee the future. Hindsight is always 20-20. Either throw to third had the chance to be a game changer in a positive way. N more »

Great article! And I agree with you, Bob, about it being a good thing that Uehara had his streak broken before the playoffs. I've always felt, during the Pats' almost undefeated season, that they shou more »

Hate to say it, guys . . . but I think Shaughnessy has it right. The opposing team won't keep imploding forever. This year's Pats have a lot of heart and grit, but the technical weaknesses on defense more »
