Wait I was getting ready to rip Gary Tanguay and then I remembered something. This is a compliment. Of course I’m not a common man anymore you moron. That’s what I started out as decades ago. When I was driving the astrovan on 48 hour paper routes. When I was cleaning shit out of my newsracks to put newspapers in them. (literal shit) When I was out handing out newspapers at 5am everyday at South Station battling it out with the Metro. When I was breaking the Russilo, Rutillo, Rudillo voicemail. I crawled, scratched, kicked, clawed my way to the top cramming tshirts down our readers throats every step of the way. Suffocating people with ads. Throwing Blackout parties from coast to coast hoping kids wouldn’t die. Brick by brick by brick I built this company from the ground up. No help. No mercy. All so I didn’t have to vacation in the Vineyard like a poor person. All so one day I’d be swimming in internet millions and dining with my friend Bill (Belichick) at the Pearl in Nantucket. Common man? No. Emperor of the Common Man? Yes.
Not exactly a blockbuster trade here, but the Red Sox have sent right-handed pitcher Anthony Ranaudo to the Texas Rangers in exchange for left-handed pitcher Robbie Ross.

Not exactly a blockbuster trade here, but the Red Sox have sent right-handed pitcher Anthony Ranaudo to the Texas Rangers in exchange for left-handed pitcher Robbie Ross.
Now, your first question is probably who the hell is Robbie Ross? Well, at first glance, he’s nothing to get excited about. The 25-year-old Kentucky native split last season between Triple-A and the big league level with no defined role. Ross appeared in 27 games for the Rangers last year, 12 of which were starts, to the tune of a 6.20 ERA, 1.698 WHIP, while punching out 51 batters in 78.1 innings.
In the two years prior, Ross was used solely out of the bullpen for Texas, posting a 2.62 ERA, 1.257 WHIP with 105 strikeouts in 127.1 innings.
We can safely assume that the Red Sox have acquired Ross to be a left-handed weapon out of the bullpen behind Craig Breslow, despite left-handed reliever Tommy Layne being a bright spot in limited action for Boston last year (0.95 ERA, 1.158 WHIP, 14 SO in 19 innings). Both Drake Britton and Layne will likely be given a shot in spring training to compete with the newly acquired Ross.
As for Ranaudo, who was a first-round draft pick for the Red Sox in 2010, it seems that his less-than-stellar stint at the major league level was all the Red Sox needed to see. While the right-hander was impressive in his minor league career, Ranaudo made seven starts towards the end of Boston’s lost 2014 season, accumulating an ERA of 4.81, and a 1.398 WHIP.
Beyond that, hitters only swung and missed at 13.7% of Ranaudo’s pitches. And if you’re not striking batters out, you need to be getting outs on the ground, which Ranaudo wasn’t efficient at, either. His ground-ball rate was 34.1%, while his fly-ball rate was a very poor 51.9%, which certainly won’t translate well in that launching pad of a ballpark down in Arlington, Texas.
While it’s somewhat surprising to see the Red Sox pull the plug on one of their top pitching prospects after seven starts with the big club, they did, however, add what could be a valuable bullpen piece by moving an expendable arm in the organization.

Sox hat, stringy goatee, and out there shoveling out of a massive snowstorm in just a Your Hole Is My Goal sweatshirt. So perfectly Masshole.

More people holding a microphone in his face than I have Facebook friends. He looks like the last scene in a zombie movie before the hero is finally thwarted and eaten alive by a pack of undead. I guess it’s good to be king?
That was one of the best football games I've watched all season.
That was one of the best football games I’ve watched all season. Big hits, timely INTs, incredible catches and all topped off by a Tom Brady crunchtime TD drive. What a game! What a fucking game! Don’t even need to watch the real one anymore, let’s just have the parade. A Madden simulation has never, ever been wrong.
Fucking hackers pick today of all days to hack my girlfriend.
(Source) — Taylor Swift had her Twitter account hacked on Tuesday by two individuals, with one hacker claiming he would release “nudes” of the singer. One hacker, who went by Twitter handle “@veriuser,” tweeted out to Swift’s 51.4 million Twitter followers, “Shoutout @veriuser follow him guys’ Fav when done for a follow… Love you all!!!” But that wasn’t all. See the hacked tweet below. The hacker then sent out another tweet that read, “go follow my boy @lizzard ” That person, who goes by the Twitter handle “@lizzard,” claims on his Twitter account to be the leader of the “Lizard Squad,” and mentions in his bio the hacker groups “Anonymous” and “LulzSec.” He first tweeted humorously, “Yes, I’m currently dating @taylorswift13.” But then he tweeted out more ominously that he had naked pictures of Swift and would send them out if he reached a certain goal in Bitcoins. Along with a link to Bitcoin account, @Lizzard tweeted, “Will post taylor swift’s nudes when this btc wallet hits 3btc.”
Fucking hackers pick today of all days to hack my girlfriend. They knew I’d be busy all day jumping around 1000 channels, trying to watch media day and get vines of my boss asking ridiculous questions. Kind of cowardly imho. But guess what? Total bluff. She don’t keep ANY of her nudes on her phone. They’re all polaroids, like the 1989 cover, buried in some safe. See, Taylor will tell you…
“Pshhhh you’d love that wouldn’t you.” That’s not a girl who’s saying “I don’t have nudes” that’s a girl saying “You didn’t find them.” So I guess that’s something we learned today. Taylor Swift definitely has taken nudes, but also the hacker definitely didn’t find them. I’d say we can hold out hope for tomorrow but I’m not even positive I want to see T. Swift nudes. I think of her as like a porcelain doll/future wife. When we get married that will be the first time she ever so much as hugs a guy. I don’t need those nudes out in the open right now.
"'Go hit that elbow, go hit that shoulder. Hit it, try to break it if you can.'"
“Those dudes are tough. Watching the game, you can see Sherman was holding that arm like he had a sling on it. But at the end of the day, this is about the Super Bowl. I’m going to tell my teammates: ‘Go hit that elbow, go hit that shoulder. Hit it, try to break it if you can.’”
This is why I fucking love Brandon Browner, such a perfect dose of nasty for this defense. Josina Anderson’s like HAHA! What a good joke! You’re gonna tell them to break your friends arm? Classic and Browner just stares back, deadpan, like Yeah what the fuck are you laughing at? This is the Super Bowl. Meanest son of a bitch on the block. All he wants to do is crash into people at high speeds and break bones.
And I’m sure there will be some people upset by this but the fact of the matter is that Browner is just being honest. Obviously teams go after injuries, everyone with a brain knows this is what happens. Look at the injury report and make targets for everybody. Needle them all game long and see if they’re tough enough to keep putting their nose in it. Maybe I wouldn’t say it out loud but that’s why he’s Brandon Browner and I’m a pussy, because he just doesn’t give a fuck.
