Tristan Thompson Lowered Demands But Still Not Worth The Money

Tristan Thompson as of right now has not come to a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Thompson has lowered his demands to a 3yr/53million dollar deal, but Cavaliers have not jumped at it just yet. If you look inside the numbers I can see why the Cavaliers have not done that just yet. Let's look inside the numbers with Thompson.

He is a very good rebounder and in that part of his game real consistent. He averages around eight to nine rebounds a game which is great in the NBA. The problem with him he also is a liability as well. When fouled he is a career .633 free throw shooter which is not very good. If he gets fouled often he is going to cost you at the foul line. He will get you around 10 points per game. His assists and steals are very low as well.

Now the money can you really justify paying a guy almost 18 million a year just to rebound the ball. I can see the Cavaliers point in not paying him that kind of money. Then you have Lebron James who wants Thompson back in the fold. I look for Thompson to sign eventually, but maybe not for awhile. Him Cavaliers still far apart.

In The Dugout: Boston Red Sox Need Accountability For 2012

Looking from the outside the Boston Red Sox did not have a bad year. They did finished with a 90-72 record, but that was not good enough for a playoff spot this past season. In Boston it is playoffs or bust, so this was a busted season by their standards. Offensively, the Boston Red Sox were first in runs, slugging percentage, and on base average, and second in batting average. The problem was not on offense it was on defense and pitching. The bullpen let to many leads slip away and the starting pitching was horrible at times.

The Red Sox also had accountability issues as well. It seems drinking and many other things were going on under Terry Francona's watch and now he is no longer the manager. The next guy they bring into Boston must make the players accountable for the things they do on and off the field. Until that is done the Red Sox will continue to struggle. David Oritz has said he probably wants out of Boston and maybe bringing in Carlos Beltran is something they may want to do.

Right now the number one thing for the Boston Red Sox is to get a guy in their that will make everyone accountable for their own actions. No more doing what you want when you want to do it. A tough manager is needed to get this team going in the right direction. The Red Sox are still very talented, but to get back to where they want to be changes will need to be made.
