Bedard’s Daily Briefing 08.05.19: Red Sox crater in Bronx, Brady contract, Lions practices

[get_snippet] [theme-my-login show_title=0]

Good morning!

A few random thoughts while I wonder if Alex Cora should have had that team meeting in New York...

  • Holy moly...

  • The Red Sox are 6.5 games out of the playoffs?! They're only four games over .500. What in the name of Chicken & Beer is going on around here?
  • Didn't really think it could get any worse, and then David Price took the hill on Sunday night. I mean, Dan isn't wrong...
