Friday, Sep 1: preseason ends, roster cuts just hours away, Maroney's injured, and the Branch deadline at 4pm. A HUGE DAY for Pat fans!!! ...and the Globe, Herald, and Prov Journal are AWOL. Asleep at the switch! The only article that took more than 5 minutes to write is Borges' hatchet job on the Branch situation (don't bother). Thanks goodness for this message board, and I hope somehow we get some knowledgeable beat writers someday. UGH!
