Red Sox Sweep Braves!Are they finally recovering from the early struggles?

Last night the Red Sox and Braves wrapped up their series with four straight wins to make them in 4th place with a record of 24-29.Today they take on the 23-31 5th place Tampa Bay Rays.I expect the Sox to take 2 of 3 and adjust their record to 26-30.The Rays would be 24-33.The Sox are still only 5-10 out of their last fifteen and 4-6 in their last ten.Will they finally get hot or will they like this all season?We’ll just have to wait and see.

Slumping Red Sox Lose Ninth In A Row

When you talk about the 2012 Red Sox season,it always means trouble.They were up 5-0,losing eight is 2012 bad but there had been worse years and a win would make them slump busters.Two wins in your last ten is better than one.But they fell apart and lost 6-5 in 15 innings.Losing when you’re up 5-0 just doesn’t happen it’s really bad.They have lost nine in a row and are 1-9 in their last ten.That just doesn’t happen either,winning only one of every ten and losing nine in a row.The Sox haven’t lost 9 in a row since 2001,before the Bambino curse was broken.This isn’t 2012 bad,this is 86 year world series drought bad.Could another drought begin,will the Sox have a 2012 like season and be back to normal next year,or will they pull it off and make one of the greatest comebacks ever this year?

NBA Draft Lottery Top 3 & Celtics

1.Cavaliers
Are you surprised that the CAVS are so high?The Bucks and Sixers both were teams that deserved the pick that made the Top 3,but the Cavs?It should be the Celtics,Jazz or maybe even the Pistons deserved that 3rd top 3 spot and if the Cavs even deserved top 3,it was third.
2.Bucks
Guess their candidate’s good luck charms didn’t work completely but it at least got them Jabari Parker or Andrew Wiggins for their pick.
3.76ers
This team used to be a great team but they need a rebuild and a top 3 pick should really help this team if it gets some other good picks and free agents.
6.Celtics
The Celtics have 18 championships and this is how they do in the 2013-14 season and draft lottery,this team could be stranded like this forever or at least for a while longer.
