Connelly’s Top 10 – Sunday Snoozers

Connelly’s Top 10 – Sunday Snoozers

1.Remember when a Sunday Red Sox game used to be fun:

* I used to watch golf on Sunday’s for my nap but now the Red Sox do the trick – first six Sunday game times this year (I think this is insane) – 3:27 / 3:46 / 3:34 / 3:28 / 3:46 / 4:32 (average game time is 3:46)

2. Celtics – Coach of the Year – What’s wrong with the NBA beyond the referees – the fact that insane things happen in that league– like Heat coach Erik Spolestra being in the final three in Coach of the Year over Brad Stevens

Celtics payroll – $93mm – Wins 53

Miami’s payroll – $102mm – Wins 41

Celtics versus Miami this year 4-0

3. Red Sox game times first six Sundays in 1975: 2:24 / 2:08 / 2:17 / 2:02 / 2:34 / 2:33 = 2:20 average or an amazing 1:26 less time than this year

4. Greatest athletes arrested

* Tiger Woods is the greatest

* OJ Simpson

* Denny McLain

* Mike Tyson

* Ali

* Ray Bourque

5 .Rockie hitters have won ten batting titles over the years – how has hitting at home helped them compared to road:

2016 – DJ LeMaheiu……Home .391/ Away .303 = 0.88

2014 – Justin Morneau….Home .327 / Away .309 = 0.18

2013 – Michael Cuddyer…Home .356 / Away .311 = 0.45

2010 – Carlos Gonzalez….Home .380 / Away .289 = 0.91

2007 – Matt Holliday……Home .376 / Away .301 = 0.75

2001 – Larry Walker…….Home .406 / Away .293 = 1.13

2000 – Todd Helton……..Home .391 / Away .353 = 0.38

1998 – Larry Walker…….Home .418 / Away .302 = 1.16

1993 – Andres Galarraga..Home .402 / Away .328 = 0.74

6. Team record last two years when Red Sox starters start game:

Price……20-17

E Rod…..15-16

Pomeranz.15-12

Porcello….25-12

7. Amazing Stat – 46% of NFL hall of famers played for one team (USA Today)

8. Old School – How about Jim Rice fun facts:

*Jim Rice hit .263 over his last three years to drop his career average from .303 to .298

* Career in the American League Championship Series – 7 for 44 = .159

* In 1985 and 1986 he had 17 errors in left field

9. Just a Little Bit Outside – 1939 and the Oscars:

* Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable and Laurence Olivier all lost in the same year

* Wizard of Oz only won Oscars for their music – song and score

* Greatest year in film – Gone With the Wind won over Wizard of Oz, Wuthering Heights, Stagecoach, Of Mice and Men, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Goodbye Mr. Chips

* The Actress nominations included Vivien Leigh, Bette Davis, Greta Garbo, Greer Garson

10. Randomocity

* The opposite of honoring Memorial Day – Insane that a terrorist that was part of a deadly attack on New York City was actually honored in New York last weekend

* Grantland Rice then Frank Deford?

* Its baseball tournament time which means jumping on a piles – someone is going to get hurt

* Watched NetFlix murder series Keepers this week – you’ll never go to Confession again

* The band the Police are boring
