Things about April

5
The NBA playoffs Later than usual this year, but can't help but wonder now if the Celtics actually plan to make a little noise.
4
The Masters A tradition unlike any other, or so we're told. And it looks like Tiger Woods has his groove back, too.
3
The NFL Draft The Patriots have two selections in the first round and two more in the second. The wage scale is in place. Might they actually trade up?
2
Major League Baseball Yes, the season is too long. But the baseball season in Boston, specially, suddenly means something again.
1
NHL Playoffs Maybe the bruins will make another run. Maybe they won't. But the postseason in hockey does not disappoint. Ever.

The final chapter on Teixeira and How Red Sox pitchers work the strike zone Jan. 7, 2009 and July 17, 2009. Some actual reporting – an obsession with Mark Teixeira and the art of pitching.

For 2011 Red Sox, there was plenty of blame to go around Oct. 1, 2011. The disgraceful collapse of the Red Sox stoked the fire in all of us.

Behind Garnett and James, Celtics and Heat are digging in June 4, 2012. Improbably, the Celtics pushed the Heat to the limit.
2
Thrill is back for Patriots Jan. 30, 2012. Another Super Bowl has even Bill Belichick musing.

You’ve got to believe June 15, 2011. On the morning of Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, we all had reason to believe.
