I think I'll just blindly trust the guy who is 50-4 at Ohio State. He can fill a roster with guys from Nova Scotia and I'll say "Yep, they'll be good".

Maybe its because I'm not from Ohio, but I just don't get this concern or even thoughts about a recruiting class that isn't chock full of Ohio kids. No one deserves a spot at Ohio State for any reason other than their ability.

Honestly, I'm enjoying this ride while I can. I don't know if this can sustain over 162. However, great pitching and great D go a long way. Might not get you the title but it can get you into October.

I used to feel like Cleveland fans whined for no reason. Sure they had it bad but so did other cities right? Wrong. Cleveland not only has such an awful drought for its teams, but the ways in which their good teams fall is utterly heart wrenching. I've always had a soft spot for the Browns and Cavs. I won't ever feel bad for the suffering of the Indians. They were my nemesis during my formative years as a baseball fan. I'm glad they never won a thing, screw the Indians.

And it turned out that Laroche is such a creeper.

But its funny you bring it up. It speaks to this teams unlikeability. Adam Eaton, who apparently is a garbage center fielder but becomes a defensive stallwart when he moves into right said that the Sox lost a real clubhouse leader with the departure of Drake LaRoche. Yes. I said Drake. Not Adam. Drake-the 11 year old. Adam Eaton, who is playing his best baseball and is central to the Sox success-said that the team lost a big part of the clubhouse when the 11 year old left. 

This is my team...

You know what sucks? Living in Chicago and cheering for the best team in the American League. The Sox are easily baseball's bro-iest team and will only be liked by the small contingent of baseball fans that cheer for the Sox-they are not a national brand like the Cubs. They have the best pitcher in the AL, hell probably the best pitcher in baseball not named Kershaw or Arietta. They have a defense that is suddenly impenetrable, they are finally getting on base and just starting to hit. I'm really psyched about seeing Frazier and Abreu in the US Cellular launching pad when the weather warms up.

Despite all of this, they are getting the spotlight stolen from them, and deservedly, by a Cubs team that might be the most likeable bunch in sports. I'm not an Anti Cubs guy, I'm all for their success. They are fun to watch and listen too and are going to drive teams insane with their ability to stretch starters pitch counts. This is so strange to me that the Sox are baseball's second best team and can't even get a look in their own city because the best team in baseball is so damned good and plays slightly north of them.

Thank you for this. I was a Freshman in 2002 and distinctly remember the buzz about Maurice's signing but shame on me this is the first time I've heard this name, and I do not know why. This is an incredible story.

Comment 04 May 2016

I guess I'm just happier that I nothing Mike Bianchi and give him no attention (other than of course commenting on comments about him) because he adds nothing to sports enjoyment or viewing\listening experience. I accept him for what he is-a well paid contrarian. Thus, his words don't bother me. If people felt the same way as I did and didn't pay him any mind, then he wouldn't have a platform from which he could spew his drivel. I'm doing this for you all .

Comment 04 May 2016

So. Um. Again. I'll ask, who does that offend? Mike Bianchi is a troll who deserves none of the attention he gets yet he is discussed on 11W every time he opens his fat, stupid mouth. At least he usually takes unfounded digs at Meyer so there is a tie to Ohio State but this time he's just talking about whatever it is he's talking about. My 'self righteous' advice is to stop making stupid people famous.

Comment 04 May 2016

This. This post. Why does it get brought up? If we all claim to not care about what Finebaum and Bianchi say then why do they get SO much play on the 11W airwaves? Everytime they say anything we see it. 

Comment 04 May 2016

What is so offensive here? I don't get why Bianchi has rubbed someone the wrong way with his comments, or what Finebaum did wrong? They are both high end, weapons grade jackasses but what did this exchange do to anger someone?

Comment 04 May 2016

False. It has the value of providing rage and fake anger over yet another slight by someone towards Ohio State. Generally, the people that it angers claim that they hate ESPN and don't follow it, yet here it is front and center proclaiming yet another injustice towards Ohio State.

Seriously, any list that comes out, and I don't care what it is, if Ohio State isn't number 1 on it, you can bet your sweet  bippy that someone is going to come here and proclaim injustice.

Ehhh I mean that's a bit of a reach only because Michael Jordan was a force of nature. I do agree to a point though, the Celtics would have been the hump for Jordan to overcome, not the 'bad' boys.

Comment 03 May 2016

The guys on this list all share a common thread-they probably should have been great but weren't. Greg Oden and JaMarcus Russel took different roads to bust town, but landed there all the same. Len Bias should be number 1 on this list and all others like it. Ask anyone who knew and they'll tell you that the NBA got robbed of a guy that was Jordan good.
