On Thursday’s podcast, I reacted to the latest NFL offseason rumors, including the availability of Richard Sherman and Aqib Talib. Should the Patriots be interested in either player? I explained which of the two big-name cornerbacks I’d rather see in New England in 2018. Plus, I expressed my concern about Hanley Ramirez’ willingness to play first base for the Boston Red Sox for the entire season, while taking a look at a potential battle at second base between Eduardo Nunez and Dustin Pedroia. I also wondered what it would take for the Sox to sign Jake Arrieta, while he’s still a free agent. And I closed out the show with some thoughts on David Backes’ three-game suspension.
