Extra Bases

A fond farewell to Extra Bases

BALTIMORE — Greetings from Baltimore, where the Red Sox season start the season on Monday afternoon.

Wanted to mention that the content you're used to seeing here has been shifted to and the continually updated Red Sox page on that site.

You will get daily lineups, pitching matchups, in-game news, all the latest updates and regular opinion pieces including a random thoughts column on the team every week or so.

On Sunday, for instance, there were pre-game lineups and notes, the news on Jon Lester's contract talks being paused, a story on the roster being set and a report on Shane Victorino's injury.

The Globe staffed all 30 Red Sox spring training games this season and we'll be there for all 162 games of the regular season and beyond. No outlet offers more on-line coverage of the team. will offer 10 free articles a month. To subscribe, it's 99 cents for the first month then $3.99 a week. That's 57 cents a day.

For that price, you get the content from the daily paper and fresh updates all day long. There are Globe Insider benefits, too.

The Boston Globe iPad app is excellent and feels like reading the actual paper. For fans who want to stay plugged in to the team all day, hopefully you'll see this as a good option.

Extra Bases will remain but the content will be provided by and not the staff of the Boston Globe. The Globe sports section was recently voted among the top 10 nationally.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the season. If you have any questions, please feel free to email and I'll answer them as best I can.
