On an Emergency Edition of "The Danny Picard Show," I opened the podcast with a few thoughts on the racial slurs thrown at Adam Jones at Fenway Park. But the main purpose of the show was to react to the Boston Red Sox getting embarrassed by the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night, and how all of that embarrassment ultimately falls back on Dustin Pedroia. I'm hitting the panic button on the Red Sox because I believe their problems are much bigger than on-the-field errors, especially after some of the postgame comments made by the team.
On Monday's podcast, Brandon Wahlberg joined me in-studio as we reacted to the Boston Celtics advancing to the second round of the playoffs and winning Game 1 over the Washington Wizards. We discussed the C's chances of getting out of the East. We also discussed the recent Red Sox series with the Chicago Cubs at Fenway and the upcoming series with the Baltimore Orioles. Also, our thoughts on the NFL Draft, the Big 3 Draft, Mike Milbury calling P.K. Subban a clown, and much more.
On a special Tuesday-edition of the podcast, ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates joined me in-studio just days before the 2017 NFL Draft.

Plus, what will the Cleveland Browns do with the No. 1 overall pick? And we also discussed what it was like for him to work at ESPN, as a Massachusetts native, during Deflategate.
On Monday's podcast, I opened the show by crushing Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia for throwing his teammate under the bus after an altercation with Manny Machado over the weekend in Baltimore against the Orioles. I told a few Pedroia stories and even looked back into Machado's history with on-the-field drama. Plus, I closed out the show with my reaction to the Boston Bruins being eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs while the Boston Celtics fought back into their first-round playoff series with the Chicago Bulls.
On Friday's podcast, I reacted to a few of the week's events, including the Bruins and Celtics struggling in the playoffs, John Farrell criticism getting laughable, the Patriots visiting the White House, and Aaron Hernandez killing himself. Plus, I shared some thoughts on the latest Carmelo Anthony trade rumor that links him to the Celtics this offseason. And I closed out the show breaking down the Patriots' schedule and discussing the Eli Manning memorabilia "scandal."

I also shared some thoughts on the WWE's latest hazing accusation, Red Sox manager John Farrell's start to the season, and Tony Romo's night as a Dallas Maverick. And I closed out the show with my NBA Playoff predictions.
On Monday's podcast, we questioned whether or not our scheduled guest, Brandon Wahlberg, was truly too sick to make it in. So we revealed his new upcoming movie roles without him. Plus, we react to Mark Wahlberg taking credit for Sergio Garcia's win at The Masters. I also shared some thoughts on the Bruins calling up Charlie McAvoy, the Cleveland Cavaliers leaving the door open for the Celtics to still win the No. 1 seed in the East, the Patriots looking for a place to put their fifth Super Bowl banner, and my WWE guest that may not actually join the show anymore.

And I closed out the show explaining why I'm not so sure Tony Romo's presence at CBS means he's done playing football for good.
On Monday's podcast, I gave my reaction to WrestleMania 33 (12:00). Plus, I closed out the show with my 2017 Major League Baseball predictions (48:00), from division winners to wild cards, to World Series champ. And I shared some thoughts on Opening Day for the Boston Red Sox, Adrian Peterson visiting with the New England Patriots, and more.
On a special Wednesday edition of the podcast, Sports Illustrated's WWE Insider Justin Barrasso joined me in-studio to preview WrestleMania 33.
