    Peter Abraham is kinda funny

    The Sox did everything they could to sign eighth round draft pick Senquez Golson. They flew him to Boston, offered him first-round money and even had Crawford recruit him. In the end, he wanted to play football and baseball at Ole Miss. Given the sad state of college athletics these days, it probably pays better.

    i think its funny anyway

    Something I found interesting today when I read it was that Alex Rodriguez is on the board of trustees at the University of Miami.It really just surprised me.

    Dead wrong.  He is a professional sportswriter who is interesting and insightful to read.  Better than Bob Ryan, Dan Shaughnessy, et al.  He can be critical of players--see him on Ellsbury last year, for example--but overall is supportive.  If he weren't, he would be out of a job. 

    Do you honestly thing any Boston sportswriter can successfully attack Theo Epstein day in and day out as you do and remain a Boston sportswriter when the Sox right now are the most successful Red Sox franchise in 110 years?

    Hey Jete.I think you're probably right about the donation.As far as I know,Arod never went to college so it took me by surprise he was on the board.This is a paragraph from an article on ESPN.com and her's a link:

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/story/_/id/6875389/alex-rodriguez-calls-poker-reports-unfair-inaccurate

    Rodriguez also offered a brief comment about the scandal involving football players from the University of Miami, of which he is a member of the Board of Trustees.

    "I'm just very sad about the whole thing,'' he said, adding he had never had any contact with ex-booster Nevin Shapiro, who claims to have plied members of the Hurricanes with cash, gifts and prostitutes.

    "It's just very sad,'' he said. "Very sad, and very depressing."

    I found it kinda libelous in suggesting that Senquez Golson (and perhaps Ole Miss) could be involved in illegal activity.

    In case you do not know, Peter Abraham had the most popular beat-writer blog on the Yankees at the LoHud Yankees Blog. It was and still is the best Yankee blog out there. It is where we get all our lineups and news about the Yankees and incase you didn't notice we attributed our lineups to Pete Abe's blog. About two weeks ago, he gave us fans the news that he was moving to the Boston Globe to cover the hated Red Sox.

    Wouldn't that be anytime he criticizes the roster and hasn't he already done that a couple or so times?  I honestly do not think he is an unremittent homer.  In fact, I think he enjoys pointing out faults--to a degree.  He does not want to be throwback to those Boston sportswriters who were endlessly critical of Ted Williams, among others.  And why should he be?  In his 20 years in Boston, Ted only got to one WS, 1946, when the Cardinals skunked the Sox and Teddy Ballgame couldn't hit spit.  But these days and years it's fund to be a Sox fan.  Every year in the playoffs or having a real shot.  And every so often, a WS win.

    Skunked? In how many games? There was only one playoff in Teddy's day: the World Series. Do you know where the Sox finished in the late 40's and early 50's. They broke people's hearts but they were always in the mix. Many great players have funked the WS more than once. Teddy had only one shot.  What's your point?
    What's an unremittent homer?
    Is it "fund" to be a Sox fan now because the club has a fat payroll?
