With Junichi Tazawa recalled to the Red Sox Tuesday, WEEI published my interview with him from Futures at Fenway. Fair warning: Red Sox reporter Alex Speier definitely added to this article, so if the writing doesn’t seem like mine that’s why. Still, interviewing through an interpreter was a valuable experience.
The bulk of my time at Futures at Fenway a few weeks ago was spent talking to people about Pawtucket starting pitcher Alex Wilson. After some editing by Red Sox reporter Alex Speier (you can probably tell which words are mine and which aren’t), that feature is now live on WEEI.
Yahoo!! Four-hundredth post, bi-yatches!
My third experience with the Red Sox minor league system – this time at Saturday’s Futures at Fenway game – was by far the best, and I’ll have written three stories from the day by the end of August. The first, about Double-A outfielder Alex Hassan, is now live on WEEI.
My second stab at the “Closing Time” column for WEEI – this time for the Red Sox’s 12-8 victory Sunday over the Mariners – went much more smoothly than my first.
With the passing of Dick Williams (manager for the 1967 “Impossible Dream” World Series team), I wrote a list of the 10 most memorable coaches and managers in Boston’s sports history for WEEI.com
As a change of pace from my normal style of game recap, I wrote the “Closing Time” analysis for WEEI for Friday’s 7-5 Red Sox victory over the Astros.
