announced the All-Star Game starters , now’s as good a time as any to hand out Celtics midseason grades. We’ll give Joel Anthony , Jerryd Bayless, Vander Blue and Chris Johnson a pass, since they essentially transferred to the Celtics after the
option. Without Chris Bosh, Miami doesn’t really have anyone who can guard Garnett. They used Ronny Turiaf and Joel Anthony and they even used LeBron James at times in Game 3. Lacking size, the Heat’s strategy is to front, rather than play behind
times. I took three jump shots and no free throws. That’s just part of it. I’ve got to keep attacking. I think Joel Anthony shot more free throws than me and took 20 [actually 18] less attempts. That’s part of the game. I don’t think

Given the recent Ray Rice suspension, many people are comparing it to Josh Gordon getting suspended for repeated drug abuse. Tim Benz doesn't think this is a fair comparison. He explains why.
We discuss the return of Rob Gronkowski, his comments to the media today, and what a healthy (or unhealthy) Gronk will mean for the 2014 Patriots.
We discuss the suspension of Ray Rice, and how the act he committed certainly seemed like it warranted a harsher penalty from the strict front office of Roger Goodell.

With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs.

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history.

Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
