A few random thoughts while I wonder if Danny Ainge and Brad Stevens are ever going to take questions about this offseason...
- Red Sox finished before the All-Star Break on a four-game winning streak and are a season-high eight games over .500. Is this the start of their inevitable push? Starting to feel that way. Series with the Dodgers right after the break could be make-or-break time.
- Christian Vazquez is ripping the cover off the ball. But he's not killing it on defense.
- Marcus Johansson going to Buffalo for peanuts is ... (Teddy KGB) very unsatisfying.
- What did Bill Belichick learn after his first, failed title defense? Sure seems like he feels he needs to shock the locker room. Any candidates for this season?
- B-Robb is killing it at Summer League.
- Sweeney was a madman yesterday. Must have been like Christmas for him.
