Connelly’s Top Ten: Celtics March to Flag #18

Connelly’s Top Ten: Celtics March to Flag #18

1.Celtics Draft

* That was boring – ugh – was getting excited for the Knicks to hand us a 7’3″ three point shooter

* That means the Celtics are two years away at best

 *Right now NBA Draftnet.com have the Celtics picking 1 / 3 / 27 next year

2. Jim Lonborg – in 1967 he was 10-4 with 2.71 ERA when he pitched on three days rest

3. Quite a day for Addison Russell of Cubs – 4 for 5 and his wife filed for divorce

4. Panda vs. the games best at third (Panda makes more than Arenado, Bryant and Rendon combined):

Panda……………..$17.600m…………..4 / 12 / .212

Rendon…………..$5.800m…………..13 / 45 / .289

Arenado………….$11.750m………..15 / 59 / .302

Machado…………$11.500m………..15 / 36 / .223

Bryant……………..$1,050m…………..15 / 28 / .260

Moustakis……….$8.700m……….…19 / 46 / .276

5. Lovullo vs. Farrell update:

Arizona – $102mm payroll – 45-27

Red Sox -$204mm payroll – 40-32

6. More good news for Patriots – Derek Carr signs for $125,000,000 – more ammunition for Brady’s motivation and Oakland’s QB just lost some hunger

 

7. Amazing Stats – Wade Boggs in 1988 with a 3-1 count:

* 58 plate appearances

* 32 walks / 12 Hits

* .462 average / .759 average

8. Old School – Celtics draft success or failures with Center’s over their history – points / rebounds

1.       Dave Cowens – 1970 – First Round – ……17.6 / 13.6

2.       Al Jefferson (is listed as center) – 2004 – first round – 16.0 / 8.6

3.       Mel Counts – 1964 – First Round…………….8.3 / 6.0

4.       Greg Kite – 1983 – First Round……………….2.5 / 3.4

5.       Eric Montross – 1994 – First Round…………4.5 / 4.6

6.       Acie Earl – 1993 – First Round…………………5.1 / 2.7

7.       Jerome Moiso – 2000 – First Round……….2.7 / 2.7

8.       Fab Melo – 2012 – First Round……………….1.2 / 0.5

9. Just a Little Bit Outside – With Keyshawn Johnson’s son being suspended for pot – will college recruits start committing to colleges located in states that have legalized pot?

10. Randomocity

·         Strange that Otto Wambier’s parents didn’t want an autopsy – things that make me go hmmm

·         Can’t hear the Exorcist music without getting scared

*      So far a good year for corn on the cob

*      Have you seen the Ameritrade commercial take on the Harry Chapman song
