BSM Approval Ratings – Michael Silverman

Michael SilvermanToday we look at Boston Herald Red Sox beat reporter Michael Silverman.

Silverman isn’t a guy who stands out a whole lot. He’s done more multi-media work on TV and Radio over the last few years, but he still isn’t a constant presence on the airwaves, and he doesn’t inject his own opinion too much into his stories, which is actually pretty refreshing.

Silverman has been with the Herald since 1989 and started covering the Red Sox in 1995. He had a very good relationship with former ace pitcher Pedro Martinez, which got him a number of interviews and stories with Martinez. He’s gotten his share of scoops while on the beat as well.

“He’s uncooperative and downright rude unless he’s talking about the history of the NFL and football”

    Just the fact that he’s not a media whore like Buckley wins points with me. Phantom Approved!!!

  • Davey

    Two thumbs up … blue collar working man … low-key, plebe approach to his craft … meek and cowering, which endears him to Pedro, et al.

    Silvy is a winner — very underrated.

  • Mary Maguire

    Take him over Michael “MOUTH” Felger any day!

  • Chris

    They win points from me when they DON’T stand out. Just do your job well and don’t editorialize.

  • jimbo

    Silverman is a sports journalist, not a blowhard.
