I will begin with sad news. This will be the last installment, whether written or visual, of Sports From A to B. Both Tyler Trudeau and I enjoyed the show, and we hope that somebody else will latch on to this idea and expand it, while retaining our enthusiasm and passion for sports journalism. A good lead-in for a sad ending is a sad beginning, so I will begin with the Boston Red Sox. The other night’s loss marked the first time since 2006 that the Red Sox have been swept in a series by the New York Yankees. With that loss, the Red Sox fell to under .500 (12-13) for the first time this season. It was Boston’s 7th loss in its last 10 games, and dropped the Red Sox four games behind New York in the AL East. The future of this team looks more and more uncertain, given the poor performance of the pitching staff to this point. This uncertainty was evidenced by two Pawtucket Red Sox being called up this past weekend – reliever Dalier Hinojosa and catcher Blake Swihart both made their debuts at Fenway. Swihart, the top-rated prospect in the Red Sox’ system, struggled in his first two games, going 1-for-7 and striking out four times. Hinojosa struggled as well in last night’s 8-5 loss, entering the game in a jam in the eighth...Read More
AHS BASEBALL, SOFTBALL WIN OPENERS The Spy Ponders teams started the 2015 season on the right foot, each emerging victorious in its first regular season action. The baseball team has evaded the unplayable conditions that have hindered many high school fields around the state, and has already played two games. Arlington won both of those games, defeating Watertown 7-3 in its opener and topping Melrose, 5-2. Softball took care of business in its season opener as well. The team also played Melrose, but won much more comfortably behind the arm of Melanie DeAlmeida. The Ponders shut out the Red Raiders, 12-0. Both teams are in action today against Winchester High School. NFL: AARON HERNANDEZ GUILTY OF MURDER On Monday morning, the jury found former New England Patriots’ tight end Aaron Hernandez guilty of first-degree murder. As a result, Hernandez will now spend the rest of his life behind bars with no possibility of parole for his actions in the 2013 shooting of his former friend, Odin Lloyd. The trial began over three months ago and the jury deliberated for over 30 hours before reaching a verdict. A murder weapon was never found, but surveillance video from Hernandez’ home showed what appeared to be a gun in his hands. As it is, the former tight end is unlikely to ever walk free again, but his legal situation is far...Read More
