Over the last few days Marcus Smart has somehow found a way to become even more beloved in the eyes of Celtics fans. Heading into last weekend, the longest tenured Celtic was already a fan favorite deemed untradeable by Celtics Nation; but this weekend he took that to another level by acknowledging the presence of Weird Celtics Twitter, giving them a national platform through ESPN’s NBA show “The Jump” and engaging with fans in a Twitter Q&A. In return for getting to ask him a question as part of the Q&A, all Marcus asked was for people to donate any amount they chose to his YounGameChanger charity foundation.
Former New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison got the recognition he deserved on a hot Monday afternoon at Patriot Place. The two-time Super Bowl Champion and former fan favorite was inducted into the New England Patriots Hall of Fame.
This is going to be an incredibly important season for Jayson Tatum. I think we can all agree on that. After an amazing playoff run as a rookie, Tatum seemingly cooled off in his second season (even though his core stats might say otherwise). Tatum averaged 16 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists per game over the 2018-19 season. This season, how much do fans expect out of him? I hate to say it, but based on what I've seen, possibly too much...
With NFL training camp starting up, that means fantasy football draft season is soon to follow. So much is on the line ranging from bragging writes to significant sums of money, which means everyone is looking for an edge. That has led to lucrative careers for fantasy football analysts as so called “experts” when it comes to who to draft and who to start any given week, but no one has become more famous for their fantasy football knowledge than ESPN’s Matthew Berry.
Red Sox put up eight plus runs on the scoreboard for six straight games against Aaron Boone’s “savages”.
Red Sox offense goes full savage mode yet again, going yard now eight times in two night against the New York Yankees pitching crew, taking game two of the series 10-5.
The Red Sox starter has recently seen his ERA, which was already sub-par for his standards, balloon to 5.61 before his victory and quality start last night against the Yankees. This season has also been historically bad for Porcello, with his walks per 9 the highest it has ever been since his rookie season in 2009, when he was 21 years old. Hitters are averaging in the low .280s against Porcello, and the former Cy Young award winner is not blaming his contract situation for his poor performance. That being said, what is driving his poor performance? There are no extreme shifts in performance, but there are a couple of indications as to his recent downgrade.
Alright, so we know that Tacko Fall signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Celtics. If you don't understand what an Exhibit 10 contract entails (like me about 12 hours ago), it is (in dumbed-down terms) an agreement between Fall and the Celtics from now until the start of the season by which, come the start of the year, they can either convert his contract into a two-way contract or waive him. His money is not guaranteed. What is guaranteed is his camp invite to start the year with the team. That make much sense? If not, all you need to know is that this renders Tacko a member of the Celtics right now. He is signed and untouchable to anyone else.
Red Sox capture record-setting night over Yankees to open up most crucial four-game series of their 2019 season.
