Best of the Bruins - Part II

The Bruins have forced Game 6 with tonight's four nothing shutout over The Hurricanes. If the Bruins are to win the series against Carolina they'll need to carry tonight's momentum, and return back to the level of resiliency they demonstrated all season.

As a tribute to the style of play we became accustom to, here is part II of Return of the Big B's. Win or lose this series, the Bruins have deservedly brought hockey back to forefront in Boston. Let's hope the Real Bruins please stand up!

Return of the Big B's part 1

In case you haven't noticed, the Bruins are back, and back with one mission. To win the Stanley Cup.

Not only does this team have a very legitimate shot at winning Lord Stanley, they have a very real chance at being one of the best Bruin teams of all time.

The Bruins and their fans have waited a loooong time for a team this strong and talented.

One can say it all started with last year's 2008 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against Montreal... One can also say it all started with this game (kudos to 'dafoomie' in creating this montage):

Stay tuned for part 2 of Return of the Big B's part 2.

The new kid on the Sox

My buddy Slater sent me an email during tonight's Sox game, "So far so good with bay. 2nd inning, 3 RBI."

No doubt, Bay's fitting in very nicely in Boston. Good D. Good bat. Good character.

Theo said it best, "We're not asking him to fill (Ramirez's) shoes. We're asking him to be a contributing member of a winning baseball team, emphasis on the last word."

I think the Angels and Yankees best be ready for a totally different experience next time they face Boston.

"There are 25 guys down there right now that feel like a team," said Theo. "It hasn't felt like that for a while and you have to feel like that in professional sports to perform at your best."

After the Angels series, any chance of making the playoffs looked impossible. The Sox were falling apart fast. But now with the addition of Bay, and the departure of Manny, the playoffs are back in sight. In the span of 24 hours, the Sox are functioning as a team again. One can not help but to think back to 2004 and the Nomar trade.

Team chemistry is instrumental in winning any championship. Period.

Just as I did in 2004, I feel the Sox chances of winning the world series are better than ever. I have the same feelings I had when Nomar was traded to the Cubs, and Orlando Cabrera came to Boston.

Be prepared to see EVERY guy on this team give 110% on EVERY play! Be prepared for the playoffs!

Okay, so Lugo leads the group in AVG (.293), but he's also only two errors away from exceeding both O.C.'s and Renteria's 2007 total. I simply can't stand watching Julio Lugo any longer... ESPECIALLY after witnessing him single-handedly blow last nights impressive come-from-behind effort.

Management must take immediate action to tell Lugo to step it up, or ride pine. Jed Lowrie IS the better option despite his inexperience. He's shown great promise and much better skills in the infield.
