I stopped watching & the team started winning. I think we have a solution! :lol:

I fully expect the Celtic to lose in the 1st round of the playoffs. No argument from me there.

I think 2nd round is more likely. ECF is their ceiling.

You sure about that now? I told you the Celtics were soft. As long as they have Jerebco and Olynick, they aren't going anywhere. Those two players make me not watch the Celtics. Its sickening. They both SUCK. Jimmy Butler schooled the whole team the other night except for Avery Bradley.

So is Bush now the new closer for you guys? I see Dyson is now on the DL.

Bush is closing. Kela was brought back up after he was banished to AAA for a "I don't care" attitude that pissed off the veterans on the team. He says his attitude is better. Hope so. His 98 MPH fast ball is needed.

I found Bush on a few waiver wires last week for depth at RP.

The Bulls are better than their record. The problem with Boston is they need another guy who can take over games. Maybe they can get that in the draft or trade. Plenty of assets.

They need a lot more than just that.

I have a term for people like this... It would probably get mod'ed out if I use it. Let your imagination wander.

Cubs fans have been snapping up their own championship rings, and the most expensive version sold out Friday morning.

A representative of ring manufacturer Jostens told Inc. that sales of Cubs-related jewelry have more than doubled that of any previous World Series winner after one week on the market. Players received their official rings, made by Jostens with 108 diamonds and other gems and presented to them by 20 fans, on April 12. Fan rings were offered the same day online at the Cubs partner's store at the Park at Wrigley.

Most people have purchased the $499 deluxe ring in either 10-karat white gold or sterling silver. The top ring, which goes for $10,800 and includes 144 diamonds, 55 sapphires and 13 rubies, was listed as sold out on Jostens' website Friday. Only 108 of those were made.

After watching your team last night on MLB and a couple other games, I can see why you don't want to watch them, wow. I watched King Felix get shelled last night. and your bull pen is not even up for discussion. :wassup: :giveup:

Like I said, I haven't watched a single minute the last 2 weeks or so. Really could careless at this point. Baseball can be boring. Bad baseball: Why bother? :wink:
