There are plenty of things to criticize the Boston media for. The failure of the 2012 Red Sox is not one of them.
That’s all on the team, from top to bottom.My SB Nation Boston media column deals with that topic more in depth, except it’s not posted yet. I’ll link it when it is.
While I respect Abraham’s right to take a couple nights off and to even tweet and blog the concert setlists, he comes off a little defensive in the comment section. His comment “Sorry I took my first road series in two years off.” is a little Beckett-esque, shades of “I only get 18 off-days during the season, I’m going to do what I want.”
Red Sox owners making presence felt – Meanwhile, Nick Cafardo is being ripped to shreds in the comment section of this piece today.
Here’s how Sox would tell their story – Gordon Edes goes off-beat and attempts to write about the Red Sox in 1910 fashion.
Red Sox Game 117 (Sox 6, @Balt 3) Reloaded – Oh yeah, the red Sox actually won last night. Jon Couture runs down the coverage and notables.

Its seems that Boston will soon have four sports radio stations in town. (Assuming Entercom does put ESPN Radio full-time on the dial somewhere.) NBC Sports Radio is due to launch on September 4th. An official announcement about Boston has not yet been made, but there have been plenty of rumblings. A connection to CSNNE seems natural, given the Comcast/NBC dynamic.
Right now, programming has only been announced for nights and mornings, so it’s unclear what the lineup is going to look like.
Ultimately, the station will face the same issues that doomed 1510 the Zone, mainly the lack of signal strength. (Well, the signal comes in great if you’re in the Atlantic ocean. )
The NBC Sports Radio Network is the latest move by Comcast/NBC in the sports arena as they attempt to mount a challenge to ESPN in the sports programming market.
