If it’s Tuesday, it must be Globe day on the BSMW Approval Ratings…
Today’s subject is Boston Globe baseball writer Gordon Edes.
Edes went to high school in Massachusetts, and had his first article published in the Fitchburg, Mass. Sentinel when he was 14. During his career he has covered all four major sports (though mostly focusing on baseball) for newspapers such as the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the National Sports Daily and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
He returned home to Massachusetts when he joined the Boston Globe in 1996, taking on the Red Sox beat. During that time he’s had a number of scoops as well as unusual incidents, such as the confrontation with Carl Everett which resulted in the “Curly Haired Boyfriend” remark from Everett in reference to Dan Shaughnessy, and the time Edes was fooled by Theo Epstein’s father into thinking that the Red Sox GM was married at a Nathan’s Famous hot dog stand.
Edes frequently appears on NESN in various capacities.
