Sports Media Musings: ESPN Original Programming Wins, Media Scolds NESN, CSNNE’s Farm System

Praising Rage Against The Machine ESPN gets criticized with great regularity. Much of the scrutiny is deserved. Segments like, “Who’s Now” on “SportsCenter” feel forced. I shake my head when Skip Bayless argues Aaron Hernandez’s fried chicken entrée could be a harbinger of trouble ahead for the Patriots. Lastly, Herman Edwards‘ rants lay somewhere between […]

Sports Media Musings: NESN Forgot To Cover Theo Epstein’s Departure

You thought “Sox Appeal” was cancelled? The laughable Red Sox-centric date program may have unceremoniously ended, but the stigma lives on. In fact, it permeates throughout the entire network.

This comes only days after Kathryn Tappen announced she was leaving for the NHL Network on the Toucher & Rich show (a move this guy told you about months ago — terrible kept secret). And rumors continue to percolate about Heidi […]

Buchholz Reportedly Has Stress Fracture, Likely Out For Season

Erik Bedard, your role with the 2011 Boston Red Sox might have just grown a bit. Less than 24 hours after the Sox inked a deal to trade for the former Baltimore ace and Seattle staffer, news out of Clay Buchholz camp is looking grim. On the disabled list with a “back” injury since June […]
