Top Stories 2008: Baseball Beat Musical Chairs

As we continue our series on the biggest Boston sports media stories of 2008, we come to a crazy few weeks this summer on the baseball beat in the local papers and websites. In that span, we saw the following movement:

Gordon Edes: Boston Globe to Yahoo! Sports

Rob Bradford: Boston Herald to WEEI.com

Alex Speier: NH Union Leader to WEEI.com

Jeff Horrigan: Boston Herald to Private Sector

Tony Massarotti: Boston Herald to Boston.com

Sean McAdam: Providence Journal to Boston Herald

Adam Kilgore: Washington Post to Boston Globe

Daniel Barbarisi: Providence Journal city hall beat to Red Sox beat.

Looking through that list, it seems easier to point out that the only people who stayed put in their baseball gigs were Amalie Benjamin and Nick Cafardo of the Globe and Michael Silverman of the Herald.

All of that movement certainly gave this site plenty to report on during those few weeks.

      They filled in for D&C on Monday and joked that they’ll probably be back together again at this time next year.

      There’s a reason I’m an independent. Why would want to join institutions that would take Mustard (DNC) or Johnson (GOP)? Cripes, any political parties that encourage idiot Yankee fans to call up deserve our censure.

    You forgot to mention Steve Krasner, the reliable, old hand from the ProJo, taking a buyout. He’s already missed.
