That included Sidney Crosby's legacy after winning his third Stanley Cup and second Conn Smythe trophy on Sunday night, why I wasn't rooting for the Nashville Predators in the Stanley Cup Finals, my prediction for Game 5 of the NBA Finals, what David Price and the Boston Red Sox should do to the lowly Philadelphia Phillies this week, and some random thoughts on Dunkin' Donuts iced coffees, and people who comment on sunburns.

On Friday, I addressed the state of the 2017 Boston Red Sox, heading into Memorial Day Weekend. I gave you the good, the bad, and the ugly, while highlighting and reacting to Ken Rosenthal's column this week about some Red Sox players not liking manager John Farrell. Are certain players trying to run Farrell out of town? It sure sounds like it. And to that, I had a pretty clear message for Red Sox management: don't let the inmates run the asylum.
