    Chad Finn: Underrated

    Thanks. Buying the book is recommended, of course, but Deadspin ran it a few weeks ago too.

    Chad Finn: Underrated

    Thanks. That was fun one to do. One takeaway: Benintendi is more engaging than we're led to believe. Doesn't say a ton, but I nice kid.

    Chad Finn: Underrated

    I've heard The Athletic.

    Big changes at CSNNE and WEEI.com

    He knows who feels that way about him and it bothers him.

    Big changes at CSNNE and WEEI.com

    They put in for credentials with the Sox to send three aggregators to spring training. Not sure of their names. They're not specifically replacing him.

    Finn: Red Sox Potentially Changing Radio Broadcast Approach

    Story will be up later, but they're going ahead with plans to do the talk-show format during the broadcast. Saw the job posting yesterday.

    Dan Shaughnessy: Taking a dump in your mouth one column at a time

    My point was that Frank Thomas is friggin' enormous and Tom Kelly was an idiot (allegedly). That is all.

    Chad Finn: Underrated

    Weird to post in this thread, but thought some of you dads (and moms too) might find this, on sharing sports experiences, relatable.

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    Says the guy with the alias and the fear of facts. (Such as: In 10 years covering media here, I've called for one person to be suspended. Felger, for Halladay.). Put your name on it, softie.

    The Athletic Boston now live.

    Ha ha, much better! Yeah, I think Alex has a lot of say over what he writes. As he should. Not sure how involved he is with the newsletter at this point.

    The Athletic Boston now live.

    It didn't announce anything. I announced it for them. They're trying to keep it quiet until next week. Also went after Speier and Drellich among others but got nixed.

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    1. I did write about it. It's my Friday media column. 2. There are WEEI controversies I haven't written about -- such as Reimer. 3. This is practically verbatim of what Kirk said this morning. 4. It was more Murray than anyone else who was emphasizing the soft nonsense, though Felger and Mazz...

    WEEI: Midday with the Big O (and Merloni and Fauria) NOW IN PM DRIVE TIME!

    Think it's more of a battle with John Karalis. They've been going back and forth on the Horford thing. Funny thing is the only person I know who worked out a "basement" is Ordway with his little failed internet radio show.

    Holley and Keefe with Dale

    That's exactly what happened. Beasley made it worth his while with the new deal he signed in January. I'd expect Holley to take over the Pats pre- and postgame shows.

    Kirk and Callahan: Annoying Little Pissants

    I don't see the monthies until I get the quarterlies (each month is on those sheets). I'm not sure if these January numbers are based on Beasley using total-line reporting -- meaning one number for streaming and the radio broadcast -- or still from the CBS Radio days. I cannot wait until it's...

    Chad Finn: Underrated

    Ha, thanks, man. My 15-year-old self wouldn't have believed I'd ever do something like that. My approach was just to point them in a direction and let them go. Forgot to get to Manny, though. Would like to argue with Shaughnessy about advanced stats someday. But that wasn't the time.

    "Tom vs. Time" - new Brady documentary

    I've interacted with Chopra a few times on the media beat (he's behind the Religion of Sports doc series; Brady is a producer) and he strikes me as a really good, genuine guy. More important, of course, is that he's a legit Boston sports fan. He put together the Ortiz docs for ESPN in his final...

    Kirk and Callahan: Annoying Little Pissants

    It's a semantics game. T&R is No. 1 in December if its share (12.4) and its stream (.3) are included against the WEEI share that automatically includes the stream (12.6). In that case, it's a win by 0.1 of a point. But including the WVEI-Providence share in the Boston market -- and Nielsen...
