Canseco goes on Twitter rant about HOF voters

I could easily clean up the Hall of Fame voting system if they would just contact me what are they afraid of the truth

— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) January 18, 2017

NY Daily NewsOn the eve of the Baseball Hall of Fame announcement, former slugger and self-proclaimed “godfather of steroids” Jose Canseco went off on a Twitter rant, ripping the writers, the voting process and naming players on the ballot as definite juicers.

Canseco, author of the 2005 book “Juiced,” which outed players as steroid users, claims in one tweet that Mike Piazza — inducted last year — used...

Merloni: 'No way Tom Brady will be SB MVP'
By: WEEI

Love a good conspiracy theory, Patriots fans? Lou Merloni’s got one for you.

Speaking on OM&F on Wednesday, Merloni said what a lot of Patriots fans are probably thinking — the NFL is not going to let Tom Brady win the MVP of Super Bowl 51, even if the Patriots romp, because the league does not want to deal with the spectacle of commissioner Roger Goodell handing Brady the award the day after the game.

“What about the MVP trophy?” Merloni asked. “There’s no way Tom Brady will be the MVP of that game, if they win. It’ll go to Julian Edelman. It’ll go to Dion Lewis. It will go to Trey Flowers. It’ll go to Patrick Freaking Chung before it goes to Tom Brady.”

The Super Bowl MVP is voted on by a panel of 16 writers and broadcasters after the game, as well as in an online/texting vote of fans during the game. The writer/broadcaster ballots are weighted 80 percent and fans the other...

Big Ben to Edelman: We have our trophies

FOXBORO — On Monday, a day after Antonio Brown posted a Facebook Live video from the Steelers’ locker room after their win over the Chiefs, Julian Edelman was asked his thoughts on Ordway Merloni & Fauria.

“Hey, people have different rules,” Edelman said. “That’s how that team is run. I personally don’t think that would be something that would happen in our locker room, but hey whatever. Some people like red and some people like blue. Some people like tulips and some people like roses, whatever.”

On Wednesday, speaking to reporters in Pittsburgh, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was asked to respond to Edelman’s comments and he noted how successful the Steelers have been.

“I don’t think I need to speak much,” Roethlisberger said to...

JBJ talks not feeling like he fit in prior to 2016

The breakout seasons of Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. in 2016 can be easily explained. Both saw more time in the major leagues, and with that experience comes adjustments and increased success. That is the way of the world in big league baseball.

But there was also a very real difference in the Red Sox’ clubhouse, as well.

While so many focused on the presence of David Ortiz in the designated hitter’s last season, the team’s aura was being defined by the group of young players who finally became secure enough in their major league existence to not just silently worry about their own lot in life.

Bradley Jr. Betts. Brock Holt. Travis Shaw. Xander Bogaerts. Andrew Benintendi. Christian Vazquez. Blake Swihart. And the additional veteran presence of Chris Young. While Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia were...

Tomlin not expecting issues at Gillette Sunday

It’s been roughly a year and a half, but it’s worth looking back at the last time the Steelers played at Gillette Stadium.

It was Sept. 10, 2015 and the Patriots raised the Super Bowl XLIX banner on a Thursday night to open the season.

The Patriots won the game 28-21, but the story of the game came afterwards when it was learned there were issues with the Steelers’ headsets in the first half.

Mike Tomlin and the Steelers were hearing the Patriots’ radio broadcast.

“That’s always the case,” Tomlin said after the game, inferring there are always some sort of issues occurring at Gillette Stadium.

The league said the Patriots were not to blame for the issue, saying a “stadium power infrastructure issue” caused the problem. It was brought up to Bill Belichick on a conference call the following morning and he went on a great rant, speaking on he number of times the Patriots...
