Connelly Top Ten – Celtics Need To Let Thomas Shoot

Connelly Top Ten – Celtics Need To Let Thomas Shoot

1.  Red Sox

* Every time John Farrell could be on the precipice the Red Sox win

* I saw that Jackie Bradley is talking about his throwing problems which I noted three weeks ago

* Rick Porcello is an extremely average 33-24 for the Red Sox with a 3.94 ERA

Drew Pomeranz is getting very close to that list that includes – Tony Eason, Peter McNab,  Pervous Ellison

 

2. Celtics

* If I was Brad Stevens my starting five would be – John Wensink, Jay Miller, Stan Jonathan, Terry O’Reilly and Lyndon Byers

* Celtics are 4-1 when Isaiah takes at least twenty shots

* Al Horford is shooting 64% on two pointers – is Brad sure the team is better with him loitering at the three point line?

* Celtics are 8-1 when they score at least 104 points

 

3. Little League World Series –

* Connecticut has won four times – Norwalk, Trumbull, Stamford, Windsor Locks

* No other New England State has won

* California – 7 / Pennsylvania – 4

 

4.  Bill Belichick record by decades of his life:

* 30’s………6-10………37.5%

* 40’s……..46-50…….47.9%

* 50’s…….123-37……76.9%

* 60’s……62-18………77.5%

 

5. Nine of the top ten hitters in the American League are righties:

1. Seguera…………….359

2. Castro………………..351

3. Garcia…………………348

4.  Trout…………………..341

5.  Bogaerts……………..338

6. Dickerson – Lefty….335

7. Judge…………………….320

8. Cruz……………………....319

9. Altuve…………………….311

10. Pillar………………………305

 

6.  The Celtics play on a Friday Night at 8:30 giving the crowd a chance to go out for some libations – what Suns coach John MacLeod said before Game 6 of the 1976 Finals – from my book Rebound:

* I remember walking out onto the floor of the Boston Garden at 9:00 on a Friday night. There was no air conditioning and it was hot and there was already a lot of Boston spirit in there because instead of going home – people went right to the taverns and had a couple beers an then came to watch the game.”

 

7. Amazing Stat – Bill Buckner was intentionally walked more than Ted Williams – 111-86

 

8. Old School – From 1980 to 1988 the Celtics, Lakers and Sixers won every NBA championship – they have the first three picks in this year’s draft

 

9. Just a Little Bit Outside – With Hot Weather – Favorite Summer Movies:

* Grease

* Jaws

* The Natural

* Caddy Shack

* Seven Year Itch

* American Graffiti

 

10. Randomocity

* Cheese-Its are boring

* The Big Papi book is a coup for Michael Holley

* Drive In Theatres under-rated

* Shouldn’t the officials at the Super Bowl be commended for getting the Edelman diving catch and Julio Jones sideline catches right in real time?
