    Am I the only one who.....

    believes many of the writers for the Globe get their ideas for columns from this forum. Seems if there is a discussion here that is good that within a week a writer has a column on it???????

    Never noticed one way or another, but good writers will find story ideas from numerous sources. To me, that would make a good reporter. Keep your eyes open to many sources to find ideas.

    Let's face it. For the reporters, the season started in early February when pitchers and catchers reports. After nearly eight months, I'm sure they're scraping the bottom of the barrel for story angles on this season -- at least until the playoffs start.

    Jim, I have to admit that there was a discussion board last week comparing the 2013 Sox to the 1967 team, which I contributed to...

    ...Sunday's globe had an article by Dan Shaunessey on a very similar if not the same discussion. Actually I noticed some of my comments were made by Dan as well, which I would have expected if a professional was writing the story.

    I hope we give them food for thought and ideas for stories.

    Maybe Peter Abraham will us Leonard Cohen's "Closing Time" as his Song of the Day when Uehara saves an important game---but, I doubt it!

    Some of these guys could use a LOT of help. (As could the Globe people who do the hiring!)

    Why else would they keep this lame forum going?

    Shaunessey hasn't had an original idea in years. Of course he taking ideas from here. I caught it too with his 67 comaparison article.

    "if we ever see the term "mental midget" in an article then we know they are watching us..

    Some say a storm is coming, Some say the end is near.

    Some think it's all so hazy, I think it's all so clear.

    Some say they have the answers, some say they know the truth.

    Some people live in question, some people have no clue.

    If there was no tomorrow, if there was just today.

    would you make different choices? or would you stay the same?

    There are only so many angles.  67 Sox and 13 Sox is an easy, if not very deep, one:  no expectations, new manager, good chemistry.  The beat writers might be cribbing from our esteemed board.  But, more likely, they are just coming to the same conclusions because there are only so many conclusions to draw.

    I kind of got that same impression. It is possible that they are getting some ideas from here.

    Probably the more likely scenario. They call it "Low Entropy".

    I think the Globe sportswriters are ahead of us most of the time because they have so much more inside knowledge, but they would be smart to check this site on a regular basis.
