So I didn’t even read the game recap in the Courant this morning; I skipped right to the notes. Seems things are getting ugly between the Sox and the (Boston) media. And I can’t say that I blame them. Pedro says one little offhand joke on Wednesday, and it is mockingly in Thursday’s paper. Apparantly another Boston columnist wrote an article that focused more on player political views than on baseball. (It was a paid column in The Herald, I believe…for an excellent daily recap of Boston media stories without actually having to read all the drivel, check out the Boston Sports Media site).
“I think that’s where the situation arises from – not talking about baseball,” Red Sox manager Grady Little said. “It’s as simple as that.”
