More than 40 years ago, when cable television was installed in my home, I became acquainted with Red Sox games on WSBK. At the time, venerable, versatile Dick Stockton was at the mic with Ken "Hawk" Harrelson. "Hawk" wasn't the over-the-top homer he is now for the White Sox, but before you knew it, both were gone. Stockton, of course, splits his time between Fox, the Oakland A's (at last check), and I believe TBS. Ned Martin took over sometime in the 80's, replaced in turn by
I found it amusing that an online commentator suggested that the Jets would try to sign Rex Grossman to back up Ryan Fitzpatrick, rather than give rookie Bryce Petty (out of Baylor), a shot, with Geno Smith gone until October due to a broken jaw.
What is it with some of these alleged geniuses throwing shade on the Jets before the first pre-season game??
Grossman hasn't played in, what, nearly 4 years? He was schizophrenic, based on the comments from sportswriters who
News has come across the wires that the NFL has upheld the 4-game suspension handed to Patriots QB Tom "Crybaby" Brady.

As long as commissioner Roger Goodell is in the pocket of Pats owner Robert Kraft, he'll never throw the whole book at the Pats. A million dollar fine and the loss
The Chicago Cubs, as expected, sent top prospect Kris Bryant to minor league camp, and his next stop is likely Iowa for about 2 weeks, or so they say.
The Players Association, and Bryant's greedy agent, Scott "20 Mule Team" Boras, are crying foul. All they see is that Bryant led all players in HRs in spring training games in Arizona with 9, but, as others point out, he's committed 4 errors at 3rd base, and they want to test him in the outfield. Bryant hasn't said anything
