Your daily rundown of what's going on with the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins and Revolution, and what's about to happen...
- I'll have a column on Bill Belchick and Cam Newton posting in the morning, but we'll be writing about the QBs until they have the next one.
- I looked back at Belichick's history with the QB position and I'm not optimistic he's going to some grand move for a QB.
- Lot of QB talk with our offensive depth chart for 2021. Yeah, I think Jimmy Garoppolo is the natural move.
- Celtics dropped a close one in Indiana.
- How's NBA free agency shaping up?
- RIP KC Jones.
- The loss to the Nets was, um, humbling.
- Love World Juniors talk for you puckheads jonesing.
- A look at pitching free agent targets for the Sox and the viability of them.
- Red Sox lost out on Japanese RHP Kohei Arihara
- Don't miss this New England Roots on Rich Hill. We'll get back to doing these more regularly after Covid.
