Re: 2017 football preview

Haven't they averaged about 15 ppg the last two years? I think 30 points/game, every game, would be a Huge upgrade to the experience, regardless of record. Is it possible?

Sox are dumping Sandoval. I've got to give management credit on this one, I didn't think that they'd be willing to potentially release him and eat the remaining money on his contract.
