Found April 04, 2013 on Boston Sports Media Watch:
PLAYERS: Jackie Bradley
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
Something I’m curious about. For those of you out there who enjoy Dan Shaughnessy, and I know you are out there, presumably you’re drawn to his style of ripping down athletes and teams and taking shots and carrying grudges. How do you feel when he writes columns which go to a hyperbolic level in the other direction, such as the ones from the last two days? Yesterday’s Jackie Bradley Jr. lovefest, and today’s At this rate, will the Red Sox ever lose? which starts out like this: They may never lose. They may never trail. Worst to first. Two games into the season, this is the theme of the 2013 Red Sox. And is it possible for Jackie Bradley Jr. to be the Face of the Franchise after only two games in the big leagues? I personally find these types of columns even more annoying than the ripfests, if only because I think these columns are incredibly patronizing. What do you think?

Jackie Bradley Jr. Celebrates Red Sox Debut, Opening Day Win at Applebee’s

Bradley had an RBI, two runs scored and three walks in Monday’s 8-2 win over the Yankees, and he did what any Sox player should do if he has his family in town for Opening Day in New York: He took everyone out to dinner in Times Square...

Jackie Bradley Jr. Winning Over Red Sox Fans With Early Play, But Team’s Status as Contender Remains Unclear (Video)

Jackie Bradley Should Have Started In Pawtucket

The title of this piece is going to make a lot of Red Sox fans upset.  As a passionate Sox fan myself, it isn’t exactly fun to write.  The subject is being debated everywhere but the conclusion is often wrong.  Much as we may not like it starting Jackie Bradley Jr. in Pawtucket would have been the right thing to do. If he was sent down, it wasn’t going to be a permanent banishment...

Jay-Z might represent Dustin Pedroia or Jackie Bradley Jr.

Remember the days when Scott Boras - sports agent extraordinaire - use to bend Red Sox management over a railing and demand whatever random excessive number they (Boras and client) decided was worthy of their John Hancock? Well it’s the same story only different characters will play the part of said sports agent.
