ESPN basketball insider Jeff Goodman checked in with WEEI’s Rob Bradford and Mike Giardi this past weekend to talk about the Celtics’ draft options and what president of basketball operations Danny Ainge should do going forward. To hear the interview, go to the WEEI audio on demand page.
During his time on the show, Goodman provided brief scouting reports on the top players available in this year’s NBA draft. The Celtics have a whopping eight picks this year, including the third overall pick. Goodman said he was unsure of whom Ainge will select with the No. 3 pick, but he offered his best guess.
“Gun to my head, if it stays the way it is, I think he goes with Buddy Hield or Jamal Murray, one of those two. I would go with Buddy Hield,” Goodman said. “I’m not overly objective about Buddy Hield, I’ve spent a ton of time with him...
The mutual respect between Tom Brady and Ed Reed is abundantly clear.
Over the years Brady has raved about how good Reed was with the Ravens, especially in the NFL Network’s A Football Life with Bill Belichick when Brady and Belichick broke down film watching Reed play and Brady noted you always have to know where Reed is on the field — more so than any other opponent.
Reed talked about facing Brady and the Patriots in an interview with Talk of Fame Network.
“Those games were awesome,” Reed said. “You knew you were going against the best. You knew the outcome could be either way. You knew it was going to be a close game for the most part. You can only control so much, but those are the best games because you’re going against the...
Here’s a look at the action in the Red Sox farm system on Sunday.
TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (21-23): L, 2-1, at Buffalo (Blue Jays)
— William Cuevas had yet another quality Triple-A start, surrendering only one earned run and four hits in six innings pitched. He also struck out four Bison batters. The only run the right-hander allowed came on back-to-back doubles in the bottom of the fourth inning.
Having pitched the most innings for Pawtucket this season, Cuevas has a 4-1 record with a 3.09 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. The 25-year-old Venezuelan also sits at fourth on the team in strikeouts with 30.
— Relieving Cuevas with the game tied at 1 was right-hander Noe Ramirez. He held Buffalo hitless in the seventh and eighth innings, allowing only a walk in his appearance. However, reliever Kyle Martin let up three hits in the bottom of the ninth inning, including...
Now that it’s learned Tom Brady and the NFLPA will file its appeal Monday afternoon, the biggest question is what is next?
Speaking on SportsCenter Monday morning, ESPN business analyst Andrew Brandt said it should be roughly a month before a decision is reached.
“If they accept the appeal, then we’re in for months more of arguments and rehearing and that whole thing,” Brandt said. “If they deny it, the suspension is back on hold. I am projecting about a month before they even decide if they are going to take the case or not.”
Brandt later was more specific saying it will be roughly a 3-6 week process.
As it relates specifically to whether or...
Ted Olson, one of several high-powered attorneys hired to represent Tom Brady, confirmed to ABC News on Monday morning that the quarterback will indeed appeal last month’s federal court ruling re-instating his four-game suspension.
“The facts here are so drastic, and so apparent, that the court should rehear it,” Olson told “Good Morning America.”
Olson lashed at NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, saying that he “completely ignored the schedule of penalties for equipment-related violations.”
Olson added: ”Our two primary arguments are that the commissioner in the first place conducted an investigation and then the commissioner imposed discipline. Then, the commissioner appointed himself as an appellate judge or an arbitrator — and then, decided something new in the appellate process, abandoning the grounds that were the original basis for the supposed discipline.
“That’s No. 1, and an appellate judge is...
