As of today, July 21, the entire revamped Red Sox bullpen is on the DL. So what should the Sox do? Eric Wilbur has an idea, as well as thoughts on new Sox starter Drew Pomeranz. And Deflategate, of course. More
The air is finally out of Deflategate and the Bruins are looking to extend Brad Marchand. Kevin Paul Dupont had thoughts on both, and he shared him with me earlier today, as he does Wednesdays at 2 p.m. More

Roger Clemens was cheered at Fenway Park last night during a ceremony honoring the 1986 Red Sox.

He offered some interesting perspective on Tom Brady’s recent predicament, his legacy as a hero of Boston sports, and football fandom and fantasy. More
News broke this afternoon that the NFL is upholding Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for his alleged role in Deflategate.
