Looks like Jesus took a break being Savior on Easter and attended the Bruins-Red Wings game. He should be able to cheer on his favorite hockey team after a long day of moving stones and seeing all his new/part time parishioners attending mass.
If Jesus is on the Bruins’ side…..
The Red Sox lineup is sorely missing Middlebrooks and his prestigious pop
Before the season, everyone questioned what Will Middlebrooks could bring to the table for the Red Sox during the 2014 season. Some questioned his defensive ability following the still-questionable obstruction nonsense from the World Series. Others questioned his offensive capacity and wondered whether he would ever get back to being the offensive force he was as a rookie in 2012. One thing is now clear regarding Will Middlebrooks: the Red Sox need him. Badly.
Even though he had only provided modest production at the season’s outset (.231/.333/.538 triple-slash in just four games this season), Middlebrooks has left a sizeable hole in the Red Sox lineup ever since he was placed on the Disabled List with a calf injury on April 6th. Ever since that time, the Red Sox have rolled out numerous players in an attempt to provide at least serviceable production at the hot corner. Unfortunately, the results have not been there, and the combination of Jonathan Herrera, Ryan Roberts, and now Brock Holt simply has not gotten the job done.
Herrera won the utility infielder job out of spring training, but he has been forced into more regular action so far due to injuries. The bulk of Herrera’s time in the major leagues has come in the middle infield, and while the Red Sox spent a decent amount of time trying to get him adjusted during the spring, Herrera seems uncomfortable at third base. He has already cost the Red Sox two runs at third in just ten games there this season (-2 Defensive Runs Saved, -2 Ultimate Zone Rating), which is obviously something that cannot continue for an extended stretch of time. Combined with his mediocre .222/.323./.222 triple-slash, it is pretty clear that Herrera is not capable of being a useful starting infielder.
Looks like the Red Wings’ Brendan Smith didn’t get the memo when it comes to the Black & Gold Devourer Of Souls, Zdeno Chara.
You just don’t f*ck with him….ever.
Because odds are sh*t is going to go horribly wrong for you…
Only reason Brendan Smith is not a soulless, empty carcass right now is because his brother Reilly probably begged Z to have mercy on his brother’s being…
Pot Of Baked Beans Goes To NESN!
Remember it was just ONE game.
The Bruins lost by only ONE goal scored by ONE of the best players on the planet.
FOUR victories to win a series….
So watch this damn Bruins pump up montage that would even jack up the FRIGGIN’ EASTER BUNNY!
Pot Of Baked Beans Goes To BarStool Sports!
What else can be said about Bruins’ alternate captain and growing legend Patrice Bergeron?
He is tough as nails, stellar defensively and dangerous with the puck on his stick. Bergy reached the 30 goal plateau for the first time since the 2005-2006 campaign.
Take a moment and look back at Bergy’s brilliant season….
Let’s hope he can add to his incredible resume with another Stanley Cup championship!
