Welcome to another Weekend Reading edition friends. I started putting this edition together last night and then abandoned it, just before the big #SensvsHabs game where I watched P.K. Subban take batting practice to Mark Stone’s hands.
I jumped off my couch when that happened – there should have been a suspension. Hopefully Stone can play in Game #2 and the Sens can get some sort of payback for Subban’s antics including a win.
