CHECK YOUR CALENDAR by ST
I wonder who packs the panic button more frequently, fans or media? Right now in Boston it's being passed around among the masses as the Red Sox entered today's matinee versus Cleveland winless on the season. The trouble was born of expectations as the Bosox are the consensus pick to win the AL. They should be because no doubt they have the deepest and most talented 25 man roster in the big leagues. The problem is the best team doesn't always win. You have to incorporate health, performace, chemistry and a few good bounces to emerge with the championship trophy. In today's edition of the Boston Globe on the front page of the sports section they posed the query "What's going on with the Red Sox"? Get ready for the gloom & doom if they slip up this weekend with the hated Yankees in their 1st series of the year at Fenway. Can't get the old golf saying "you drive for show and you putt for dough" out of my head. Tiger is hitting it well in round one of the Masters. Just can't get one to drop. Had the speed going but was lipping out early. Made the turn -1 but bogeys on 10 & 11 got him into black numbers and you wondered what lied ahead. A bird on the par 5 thirteenth got him back to level par. On today's show we'll keep you updated and talk about what went down out there today. The early story was the 21 year old from Northern Ireland, Rory McIlroy who fired a 65 and sits solid at 7 under. This is just his 3rd shot at Augusta. Missed the cut last year after finishing 20th in 2009. He's had some success in majors with 3rd place finishes in the 2009 PGA and last season's British. See how he holds up under the heat of being the leader in an event like this. Blazers back to work tonight on the back end of the TNT double header against the Jazz. We'll discuss what's at stake with you this afternoon.
