Connelly’s Top 10

Connelly’s Top 10: Red Sox Looking Up

1. Red Sox

* Love the game time 2:36

* I guess it is almost time to start giving Dombroski his due – Sale, Pomerantz, Kimbrel, Nunez, Young, Moreland

* The ball Bradley hit Friday twenty rows deep over the bullpen – tells me that the ball is more than wound tight something has allowed the flight of the ball to go farther

* Sox on pace for 91 wins

* I get pumped up when Vazquez pumps his fist

* Sale, Price, Rodriguez, Pomeranz = 14 losses / Porcello = 14 losses

2. Patriot QB’s with winning record

* Brady 183-52

* Grogan 75-60

* Bledsoe 63-60

* Parilli 44-32

* Eason 28-21

* Cassel 10-5

* Flutie 8-5

3. MLB not going to have a pitcher win 20 – Only Clayton Kershaw is on a pace for 20 wins – but he is hurt

4. Kimbrel on pace for 39 saves which would be 6th in Boston history

* Gordon 46

* Lowe – 40

* Papelbon – 41

* Reardon – 40

* Urbina – 40

5. In 1970-1971 – John Havlicek averaged 45.4 minutes out of 48 minutes a game

6. Ray Bourque had more power play goals for the Bruins than Phil Esposito – 164 – 153

7. Amazing Stats – Steve Grogan threw 208 interceptions compared to Brady’s 152 – how do their attempts match up – Brady 8,224 / Grogan 3,593

8. Old School – In 1966, brothers Felipe and Matty Alou were one / two in baseball in hitting – .342 / .327 (side note – the brothers along with Jesus combined for 5,094 hits)

9. Just a Little Bit Outside – I can’t think of David Price mouthing off to Eck and not wish Will McDonough was there – September 9, 1979 –

* Raymond Clayborn started elbowing reporters who were near his locker

* Yelled at McDonough to move or he would bury him

* McDonough promised him “you’re not going to bury me”

* Grabbed McDonough ripping his shirt and then scratched the reporter’s eye

* McDonough then laid out Clayborn into his locker

* Clayborn was fined $2,000 by the NFL to add insult to injury

10. Randomosity

* Four weeks from Labor Day

* Panda was booed in his return to San Fran

* London Bridge was the finish line for the World Championship marathon this weekend – just weeks after terrorists murdered innocent people

* Washington National’s announcers – home run call straight from Ralph Kramden- “Bang – Zoom”

* Bad stretch for NESN – Eckersley verbally accosted, Steve Lyons involved in domestic abuse charges, ratings are plummeting, their sideline reporter got a concussion

* I’m so sick of Kapernick – why not Tebow – Miami chose Cutler over him – ugh – swim with losers you are a loser

* Hats off to the bike riders this weekend!
