The 2018 Red Sox were an extraordinary team, a season that may never be replicated. But how close can the 2019 team come to achieving that?
Look, you all know how I feel about Jimmy Garoppolo. At this stage, I think we all know how Belichick felt about Garoppolo. But whether the next quarterback of the Patriots is Jimmy G. or Maggie Q., the Patriots need to start the process again, whether you believe Brady is playing until age 45 or not.
But Edelman? Let’s not be ridiculous. The Patriots missed him for the first four games last year and it showed. With Danny Amendola gone, the Patriots had no suitable replacement behind him. Now there are lesser players making more, some of whom the Pats seemingly tried to recruit.
Four quick thoughts on each of Boston’s four major sports teams during the black hole between the Super Bowl and NFL free agency…
So we’ll say it again: don’t make too much of this. If the Celtics go out and revert tonight against the Sacramento Kings, last night’s win becomes nothing more than another outlier. We need to see something reasonably consistent from this team – over an extended period of time – before we can even begin to believe that have cured of the selfishness and pettiness that has plagued them all season. That said, the basketball last night was, at times, scintillating.
Mazz: As Another Patriots Coach Departs, a Familiar Question Lingers: Is Bill Belichick Nearing the End?
With character coach Jack Easterby becoming the latest coach to depart the Patriots, it begs the question: is the writing on the wall for Bill Belichick's imminent departure too?
To win games against good competition in any sport, you have to show up for work with, as one expression goes, your lunch sack. And so pardon the tactless word play, but the Celtics don’t have one.
LeBron James is a great player, but how often is he called a great leader? The sooner Kyrie Irving realizes that about himself, the better off he'll be.
Here we are, five years after John Henry blew the Jon Lester situation. Now the owner is suggesting something altogether different. And it all suggests the team is now willing to pony up for yet another 30-year-old pitcher entering the final year of his contract.
Simple truth: There is the way things should be. And there is the way things are. And the latter is why the Celtics should let Kyrie Irving play in the All-Star Game.
The Sox finally got over the hump last year, so the question now becomes the following: how does president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski keep this together?
Kyrie Irving and the Celtics' inability to secure a loose ball factored in when Rajon Rondo (of all people) corralled a loose rebound and nailed a jumper at the buzzer, sending the Celtics home with yet another loss that should shake your faith in them.
As the league - and his team - changes around him, Bill Belichick still proves why he's the best coach of his generation.
Mazz looks at three of the biggest matchups to watch for in the Super Bowl.
The rules are completely different. Offenses and defenses have changed. The competition has completely turned over. And Brady still wins.
If you’re answer is yes, will you feel the same way on Monday if the Patriots lose the Super Bowl?
Mazz thinks there were actually a few nuggets worth discussing at Super Bowl Opening Night as the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams prepare for Super Bowl LIII this week.
Mazz on why it's important to appreciate Tom Brady and Bill Belichick while they're still making Super Bowls.
Some of these numbers will blow your mind, even by Patriots standards.
By Tony Massarotti, 98.5 The Sports Hub OK, time to state the obvious: Kyrie Irving doesn’t know how to lead. But that doesn’t mean he’s wrong. Just two days after publicly venting his frustrations at his coach and teammates, Irving got back on defense last night prior to the Celtics’ 109-102 loss to the Brooklyn…
So here is a prediction for what is going to happen next: the Celtics are going to tell us that there are no issues. They are going to tell us that everything is fine.
By Tony Massarotti, 98.5 The Sports Hub Bill Belichick and Nick Saban are linked for lots of reasons, but here’s a distinct difference: Belichick doesn’t throw his players under the bus the way the Napoleonic Saban did after his team got blasted in the national championship last night. Oh, Saban didn’t mention his players by…
Mazz reveals who he is voting for to get into Cooperstown in 2019.
By Tony Massarotti, 98.5 The Sports Hub The 12 Days of Christmas, believe it or not, begin on December 25. But we here at 98.5 The Sports Hub have our own way of doing things, so we’re counting backwards. As such, as we conclude 2018, we give you the 12 Days of Christmazz to celebrate…
Hard to believe that Chris Sale could be "fine" with how the last two seasons have gone for his health.
