Catching up on a few items from the last several days while shaking my head that the Red Sox were nearly no-hit last night…
Nick Underhill of MassLive.com, one of the best young writers covering the Patriots announced yesterday that he’ll be moving on.
It’s a big loss for the beat, Underhill carved a nice niche for himself covering the Patriots, blending solid reporting, film study and statistical analysis in a straightforward, informative, easy to digest manner. I’m impressed with the entire staff at MassLive.com, so I’m hopeful they can bring on someone who can approach the competency that Underhill brought to the job.
Best wishes to Underhill going forward, New Orleans should be a great beat to jump on.
Last week, NESN announced that Gary Striewski has been named as the network’s primary Red Sox in-game reporter. He follows Jenny Dell and Heidi Watney in that role.
The network claimed to have reviewed over 200 candidates for the job before awarding the position to Striewski, who has done a nice job this year in the role.
I don’t know if NESN even sent out a release on the news, as I didn’t get one, and Chad Finn at the Globe didn’t get one either, which is rather odd given that this is a relatively high-profile position.
So when does the Godfather of Boston Sports Radio have his Twitter account deactivated?
Also, the account is not verified are we sure it is even him?
A couple days late on this, but I laughed at this Peter Abraham paragraph in Sunday’s paper.
It was only the second homer for Ross in 96 at-bats against righthanded pitchers over the last two seasons. The other was against Texas ace Yu Darvish last season. So if you’re a well-paid Japanese sensation, the backup catcher of the Red Sox is coming for you.
Bruins await Jarome Iginla’s decision – Fluto Shinzawa has the Bruins hoping to retain Iginla, who is almost certain to receive more lucrative offers elsewhere.
