Figure I should start linking to our weekly Red Sox podcast here because . . . well, because I think we've hit our stride with the thing this season, because it's informative and entertaining without being overbearing, and mostly because pestering our Red Sox insiders for extra insight is one of my favorite parts of this gig.
This week, host Daigo Fujiwara and I chat with beat writer Peter Abraham about the offense's struggles in Seattle (which seem to have carried over to this Tampa Bay series), who should be the No. 3 starter (Erik Bedard, without a doubt), and whether Jonathan Papelbon's outstanding season means there's a better chance that he'll remain with the Red Sox.
We discuss his filthy 8/1 K/BB ratio, but ran out of time before discussing his terrifying archery skills. Check it out if you haven't. If you have, thanks for listening.
