Scott Lauber To Join Boston Herald

Haven’t gotten official confirmation on this, It’s official. Scott Glauber will be joining the Boston Herald to cover the Red Sox sometime in the middle of March.

Ian Rapoport of the Herald posted this on Twitter earlier this afternoon:

Congratulations to @ScottLauber, who has joined the Boston Herald’s Red Sox reporting crew. Welcome to the party…

Scott Lauber currently covers the Philadelphia Phillies for The News Journal of Wilmington, Delaware.

The quick bio on The News Journal website reads as follows:

Scott Lauber is starting his fifth season on the Phillies beat for The News Journal. A native of New Jersey and a graduate of Boston University, he previously wrote for the Concord (N.H.) Monitor and the Press & Sun-Bulletin in Binghamton, N.Y., where he covered Jose Reyes, Jason Bay and David Wright when they were minor leaguers in the New York Mets’ farm system. He also co-authored a book, “Phillies Confidential: The Untold Inside Story of the 2008 Championship Season,” with former Phillies outfielder Gary Matthews.

As a Boston University senior in 1997-98, Lauber covered high school and college sports for the Herald.

Update: Michael Silverman has also welcomed Lauber:

Big welcome/follow to @ScottLauber, who will be joining Herald’s baseball staff soon. Smart guy, already changed his Twitter avatar

This is the ultimate dilemma. Of course fans want the Red Sox to win the World Series, but the dilemma is be careful what you wish for because you might get it. And if the Red Sox played the Cubs in the World Series, one of those two franchises will be permanently and forever altered. One of them will never be the same. So remember, while winning is the ultimate goal. If you’re a Sox fan or a Cubs fan, it carries a steep price tag. Life will never be the same.
