    This is really heartbreaking news. Sean isn't just a good guy, but as Chad wrote he's an oasis of reason and careful analysis amid the nuclear wasteland of over-cooked hot takes and know-nothings that dominate today's local media. The horsepower Sean brings compared to most on the scene is so self-evident, I hope decision-makers elsewhere in Boston see that, too.

    I wish I were John Henry. I would do three things: 1) fire everyone at NESN involved with or who thought it was a good idea not to renew Don Orsillo's contract; 2) fire everyone still around who was involved with or who thought it was a good idea to low-ball Lester on the contract extension; and 3) hire McAdam at the Globe to replace Cafardo.

    just noticed that Sports Tonight Early Edition and Sportsnet Central are not on from 6-7 tonight....does the new "cheaper" lineup start up immediately?

    edit: reruns of Monday Night Patriots and Quick Slants

    Kirk said he was on sports tonight today...I'm guessing it's snow related

    does he only go on with Gary's early edition? he could have referred to the Late Edition that is airing before Celts game

    noticed John Tomase discussing ST on Sportsnet Central tonight. guess CSNNE will just rotate beat writers for reports?

    I wonder where McAdam will land for the upcoming baseball season.

    My guess is he is going to turn up in another town. I think the opportunities for full time baseball writers and analysts in this region are dwindling.

    That would be a shame, but I can't think of a current opening where Sean would make sense. Hope there's one out there.

    Remy's (along with a few others). Sad to have to print that, but I don't like the sound of what I read today.

    Chris Price announced on twitter that he is no longer employed at WEEI.
    Hopefully he catches on somewhere as I thought he was really good.

    Does anybody stream the Celtics over Roku via the NBC sports channel? I had been doing that for over a year but now when I enter the login credentials it's blocked out due to local restrictions or something.

    Edit: not sure this is the right forum but not sure which is...

    Edit 2:...and game thread tips me off that tonight's game is on ESPN so I got it via that stream. Original issue remains though.

    Bradford has Sean McAdam on his podcast this week, should be interesting based on this preview

    That podcast was an excellent listen. McAdam came off as very genuine - he didn't sugarcoat some of his feelings about how things went down at CSNNE but he was also forthright about knowing where the industry has been headed for some time now and about nobody owing him a job. I've always enjoyed reading his work and listening to him so I do hope he lands somewhere in the baseball media marketplace.

    The late night show could be decent, would have been awesome 15 years ago when people were living and dying with each Red Sox game.

    Who thought it was a good idea to give Gary Tanguay a 2 hour TV show? Does anybody watch his 30 minute show? This thing is going to flop huge. Hopefully, Trenni does not get hurt career wise for having to be attached to this Tanguay disaster.

    How the hell does Tanguay keep getting work when he's so irrelevant in the Boston sports scene???

    Minihane went on Early Edition last night and trashed the first segment complaining about not being on the new show, trashing CSNNE

    they were supposed to discuss Butler and the Saints

    The fact that people can't stand him enough to talk about him means he's relevant.

    Yeah but that doesn't equate to being a ratings draw. Kirk & Callahan (I can't believe I'm even referencing these two guys) last Friday alluded to the fact that when Tanguay is on the air (albeit the format is radio) ratings go down. That has to translate to television where people can just change the channel the minute something stupid pours out of his mouth.

    He's so crazy! What will he say next?!

    Does it? This isn't a Felger situation where everyone talks about the stuff he says. Tanguay is usually brought up when people are wondering how he seems to keep getting steady work despite his lack of talent or charisma. I couldn't tell you one opinion he's ever had through his career

    Tanguay opinion: Brady did it. Kraft was funneling hush money to Jastremski and McNally to keep them quiet.

    In fairness, that was Gary's best moment.

    Indeed. It never ceases to make me laugh every time I hear T&R play it for their "Hot Take Police" bits.
