A Breath of Fresh Air
I'm not exaggerating when I say that this podcast is my favorite source of Sox analysis out there. Excepting Peter Gammons, nobody at NESN, the Globe, WEEI, or any of the other regional or national media outlets gives the team such prolonged, serious, and engaging attention. The hosts have qualities that are rare if not altogether absent from contemporary sports journalism: humility, curiosity, imagination. They are opinionated without being grating, statistically minded without being esoteric or drifting off into inaccessible jargon, and able to consider off the field matters without repeating tired clichés and platitudes. I'm often embarrassed by how often I check for a new episode when I know full well not enough time has past since the last.
