The Patriots “next man up” mentality is on full display on this episode of Boston Sports Weekly!
On this episode of Boston Sports Weekly, Nick is here with David Manners (@DavidManners) to discuss the “next man up” mentality of our beloved Patriots, rumors of Klay Thompson heading to the Celtics, and the September playoff push for the Red Sox.
For the Boston Celtics, it has been a busy offseason and with Danny Ainge working his magic behind the scenes, the regular season can't get here fast enough. The guys discuss Ainge's fantastic work to get a deal done for Kyrie Irving, the finality of the Irving deal, and rumors swirling around a trade which could see Klay Thompson landing in Boston.
In Foxboro, the New England Patriots will be without the services of Julian Edelman in 2017, but as we all know these aren't unchartered waters for the Patriots. Nick and David tell us about the “next man up” mentality of the Pats and how players like Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola, and Brandin Cooks will have to step up if this team plans to repeat the success of 2016.
Plus, the Boston Red Sox have hit a bit of an inconsistent streak in the past week and the guys are looking for a good start to September in New York against the rival Yankees. Also, discussion centers around the addition of Rajai Davis and questions concerning starting pitching down the stretch.
