Felger & Mazz: February 27, 2014
Felger and Massarotti opened the day talking about the Boston Red Sox and projections on the upcoming season. Pre-season betting lines have the Red Sox at 87.5 wins. Do the Sox have the tools to repeat as World Series champions? Why did the Sox sign left-handed pitcher Chris Capuano?
In Hour 2, Felger and Mazz continue to discuss the Red Sox and how they compared to the New York Yankees entering this season. Between the Sox and the Yankees, which team is built better? Changing gears from the Sox talk, Mike and Tony got into the Boston Celtics and Rajon Rondo. If the Celtics are not required to name a captain, why would they give the captaincy to Rondo?
During Hour 3 of Felger and Massarotti, the guys got into the Boston Bruins and last night’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres. Bruins President Cam Neely joined the guys to discuss the Olympic break, the hike in season ticket prices, and next week’s trade deadline.
In the fourth and final hour of Felger and Mazz, the guys take calls on all the topics they covered today. Do the Celtics have to trade Rondo? Entering the start of the baseball season, are the Yankees better than the Red Sox? How can the Bruins fix the hole in their defense by Wednesday’s trade deadline? To wrap the day up, we hear the Final Word with Marc Bertrand.
