November 17, 2020

2020 has proven to be the year where history is rewritten. Last week the Miami Marlins announced that Kim Ng would be taking over as general manager, making her the first woman and first Asian-American to hold such a position in major North American professional sports. Chris Gasper talks with NBC Sports Boston's Trenni Kusnierek to discuss what this milestone moment could mean for the future of women in pro sports. We also analyze the state of the Patriots following their upset win over the Baltimore Ravens, and Trenni explains how the Summer Olympics, postponed to 2021, might change during the time of COVID-19.

The Alex Cora-nation, a path to playoffs & the future of sports media Ft. Dan Shaughnessy

The Alex Cora-nation, a path to playoffs & the future of sports media Ft. Dan Shaughnessy

November 11, 2020

Chris Gasper is talking with The Boston Globe’s Dan Shaughnessy this week and they start off with what is on everyone’s mind, the Red Sox bringing back Alex Cora.  Cora brings a lot to the Red Sox Franchise, but are we all just going to forget about the whole cheating scandal? Well….that’s what the Red Sox are hoping for.  Dan Shaughnessy also raises the moral dilemma that comes along with bringing Cora back: If we can forgive Cora for cheating, then what about Clemens, Rose or Bonds?  After, the two touch on the win against the New York Jet’s for the Patriots this past Monday night and Chris & Dan disagree on what that means for playoff chances.
