Felger & Mazz: The Local Teams Struggle In New York This Weekend
Felger & Massarotti opened the show ready to talk about both the Red Sox and the Patriots. There is a lot to talk about today. The Sox dropped 2 of 3 to the Yankees and the Patriots lost 34-31 to the Bill in Buffalo.
Starting off with the Red Sox, the guys discussed the performances last night of Jacoby Ellsbury and closer Jonathan Papelbon. Ellsbury hit a go-ahead 3-run home run in the 14th inning to prevent the sweep. Could Ellsbury win the M.V.P.? Even though Papelbon pitched 2 innings last night, should he still be available to pitch tonight as well?
Moving on the Patriots game. How can this team be successful if Tom Brady has a bad game? Are the Patriots to reliant on the pass? What is going on with this teams defense? With a loss yesterday, are the Patriots taking a step back?
This weekend Francona made adjustments to the lineup. Did these moves come too late?
How devastating of a loss was to the Bills yesterday?
