What would a Braves/Red Sox trade look like?

The Defending Champs are Just as Problematic as the Braves…

if not WORSE. Boston is 5 games below .500  in the junior circuit.  While that is not promising,  it doesn’t seem likely that they’ll be in sell-mode due to the nature of their division (Like the NL East, no one is running away with it) and the addition of the 2nd Wild Card.  As bad as they’ve played, their only 7.5 back of the division and 5 back in the Wild Card.  Let’s take a look at their problems and decipher what they might need on the trade market.

You can’t blame Mark Richt for Georgia’s discipline troubles. Ok, yes you can.

It’s become as regular as the swallows returning to Capistrano, or the Atlanta Braves bowing out of the playoffs early on….come spring, at least one (usually several) Georgia football players will do something stupid and get arrested and/or dismissed from the team.

Head starts in the Fulmer Cup standings are what the Bulldogs are becoming known for, and it’s starting to move from a running joke to an actual concern (for the record, I was concerned years ago).

This year’s subplot of four players–safety Tray Matthews, wide receiver Uriah LeMay and defensive linemen Jonathan Taylor and James DeLoac–being arrested on misdimeanor counts of…

But the Eagles weren’t going quietly into that good night, and pushed the Jackets to overtime, before falling 73-70.

The game wasn’t a smooth ride for either team though. It had everything from clock issues on the court, questionable calls and no-calls (ok…beyond questionable, how about ridiculous)
