Afternoon Update

Couple of blogs and recent missives from some media critics to check out on a rainy Wednesday afternoon.

Dave Scott checks in on witih Scott’s Shots while John Molori’s Media Blitz column features Andrea Kremer.

Over the past few months I’ve found Chadd Finn’s Touching All the Bases to be a must read. Another blogger from Vacationland, Steve Mistler on his Outsde the Hub blog tosses his four cents in on Johnny Damon’s return. Sheriff Sully offers up his five most painful losses as a Boston sports fan. Lastly, the grandaddy of ’em all, Bill Simmons, attempts to explain fantasy baseball to his wife in his latest column for The Magazine.

For those who haven’t read Bruce’s latest on the “Best and Worst of the Boston Sports Media”, check out below.

I don’t think D&C are unlikeable. They’re passionate and sometimes their comments and opinions can be perceived as negative. But they are incredibly smart, well prepared and far more knowledgeable about sports than Toucher and Rich. That’s why they’re as successful as they are. Toucher and Rich are talented radio guys and they have a following, but if you want sports, D&C are the choice.
