I’m Back…

I’ve been in New York City for the long weekend, so I haven’t been able to keep things fresh here over at The Sports Beat.  Well, I’m back now, so let’s quickly get some words out there on the interweb machine.

  • Brent Barry was fouled.  He also travelled after the fact.  So, NBA refs (hey, Joey Crawford, you wanna fight?), you’re job is not to morally decide who deserves a call, it’s to enforce the rules.  Please start doing that.  That also involves noticing if balls touch the rim or not.
  • Memo to Terry Francona: Mike Timlin is a shell of his former self.  With the bullpen questionable, Justin Masterson will play a pivotal role down the stretch and (hopefully) in the playoffs.
  • The Rays are still doing it big.
  • Hopefully Daisuke Matsuzaka isn’t hurt too badly, but if he’s out for a couple weeks the Sox are in fine position to cope with Bartolo Colon on the scene and Clay Buchholz and Justin Masterson biding their time in the minors.
  • Ray Allen is killing the Celtics.  His defense is porous and his offense has been abysmal.  More to come on this later.

    I was shocked the NBA actually said Barry should have gotten a foul call…even though he was. Yet, I was equally shocked Rasheed Wallace wasn’t fined or even suspended for ripping the officials in his profanity-laced venom to reporters after the Celts win in Game 5. Trashing the officials and swearing like a sailor simultaneously with the game on its biggest stage only garnered a $25 k fine?
