    Abraham covered the Red Sox and baseball. Does this open something?

    It could, but I'll bet that Abraham moves into the full-time beat position.

    Am I missing something? Abraham and Benjamin were the Sox beat writers this year, Cafardo was the national writer

    I may be wrong, but I thought Abraham was the back-up beat writer when Benjamin was off the job. He took care of most of the multimedia stuff.

    Abraham was hired last year (?) when Adam Kilgore left for the Patriots beat (and eventually WaPo).

    I am curious to see if the position on staff is filled, or people are shifted over.

    They also lost Albert Breer recently.
     
  8. Where's Chris Snow these days? He's not with the Wild anymore, right?

    It's funny. Abraham wrote a Patriots article for today's paper. I wouldn't be shocked if people are shifted over.

    Greg Bedard replaced Breer. Abraham was the Red Sox reporter. He took care of the blog and sidebars, etc. while Amalie focused on the gamers. It's not uncommon for them to throw all available bodies at the Patriots stuff. I wouldn't read too much into it. For instance, Benjamin is in Pittsburgh right now covering the Steelers side of things.

    Even back in the day when staffs at both Boston papers were larger, beat people from other sports would participate in coverage deemed worthy of the human wave approach -- Patriots games when the team finally got good, playoff games in other sports, the Marathon, etc.
    Benjamin is a good reporter. Nobody can be blamed for getting off a baseball team beat. It kills your body, mind, and most of all, life.
