On this episode of Boston Sports Weekly, Nick is joined by his brand new co-host, David Manners (@DavidManners), to discuss the Red Sox trade deadline acquisitions, Patriots training camp news, and the Celtics outlook for 2018.
The guys tell us more about the impact we will see from the Boston Red Sox trade deadline acquisitions of Addison Reed and Eduardo Nuñez, the hot bats in the lineup keeping the Sox in first place, David Price finding himself in a media dispute with Dennis Eckersley, and a discussion about how this team compares to the World Series Championship team of 2013.
In Foxboro, the New England Patriots are celebrating the 40th birthday of Tom Brady, but also coming to grips with the retirement of outside linebacker and team leader, Rob Ninkovich. Plus, the guys give us some insight on the fight between Julian Edelman and Stephon Gilmore, the possibility of an undefeated season, and the team’s depth at running back and wide receiver.
Plus, the Boston Celtics have officially signed Shane Larkin and now look to be the team to beat in the Eastern Conference this season. What will the starting lineup look like in 2017-18? Nick and David take a crack at what we are most likely to see come October.
