    Chad Finn: Underrated

    The Athletic is great. It writes the kind of stories I like to write. I thought long and hard about taking an offer there a couple of years ago. Have tons of friends there. It also got sold to a newspaper.

    Tito had to deal with the weight of history. That tips the scales his way for me.

    Wickersham book: "It's Better to Be Feared"

    Let me know what you guys think. It's very fair and you end up marveling at the era more than anything else.

    Chad Finn: Underrated

    In our monthly report about web traffic, we get a note on how many subscriptions we drove that month -- meaning how many people directly clicked off your article and subscribed. It's important, but not something that's dangled over our heads. Honestly, it feels like the same job I had when I...

    John Burke is the first person I met at the Globe and one of the best editors and people I've ever worked with.

    Tara Sullivan: What Does the Globe Have Here?

    You bet. I think he wanted to hire her for a while before she signed on. Shared New Jersey roots as well as a last name.

    Tara Sullivan: What Does the Globe Have Here?

    Joe hired Tara. Nice to see this thread. She's a great teammate and one of the best deadline writers I've ever seen.

    Big changes at CSNNE and WEEI.com

    It'll be Gresh. Nothing imminent with Tanguay, but expect him to have a bigger role in the future.

    NBC Sports Network shutting down, sports content headed to USA Network

    Chad Finn: Underrated
