Boston Herald for Sale, Price Is Right for Globe

October 28, 2018

When the costly local tabloid arrived at the Global Worldwide Headquarters this morning, the front page of Sunday Sports blared out this:

STAY ON SCHEDULE

Silverman: Red Sox stick to plan,

save Sale for Game 5

 

Said Michael Silverman piece ran on page 3.

 

 

Except . . . this Peter Abraham piece is more like it.

 

 

(To be sure graf goes here)

To be sure, the Herald got it all sorted out eventually, as the paper’s website and E-Edition indicate. But that sure doesn’t help the lowly home subscriber, now does it?

Boston Herald 2018 Red Sox Preview Is On Autopilot

March 29, 2018

Today’s edition of the feisty local tabloid features its Red Sox 2018 Season Preview in advance of this afternoon’s Opening Day game in Tampa Bay.

 

 

The good news? Steve Buckley’s There’s still time for David Price to become beloved in Boston.

The bad news? NECN’s Fire Reported at Tropicana Field Ahead of Red Sox Opener.

The ad news? The thirsty local tabloid actually has a bunch of full-page ads in the special section. But oddly, 10 out of 11 are for auto dealerships. This is the other one ($99 for those of you keeping score at home).

 

 

Even odder, these are the only two ads that ran in Sunday’s Boston Globe Coming of Age season preview, one of which is a house ad.

 

 

In today’s edition Globe scribe Dan Shaughnessy asks, Are fans ready to embrace the Sox?

You tell us, but advertisers sure as hell don’t seem to be.


Why Does Jon Lester Hate the Herald?

August 3, 2014

From our It’s Good to Leave in a Two-Daily Town desk

Former Red Sox hurler Jon Lester is getting a nice sendoff today in the local dailies.

The Boston Herald has him co-starring in this nifty charticle:

Crosstown at the Boston Globe, the redoubtable Bob Ryan ranks Lester among the great Red Sox lefties.

Jon Lester is a very good contemporary pitcher. He may once again wind up starting Game 1 in a Division Series, an ALCS, and a World Series. He has proven that he can handle the spotlight. There were no, “Yeah, buts . . . ” He is low maintenance, thoroughly professional, and eminently rootable. I wish the Red Sox had found a way to keep him.

And he certainly has a place in Red Sox history.

He is, however, not the best lefthanded pitcher in Red Sox history, as some have been saying these past few days.

I’ve got him slotted at No. 4.

 

Regardless of the third-runnerup slot, Lester ran this full-page ad in the Globe’s Sports section today.

Very sweet. But back at the feisty local tabloid, Lester had nothing for Herald Nation.

What’s up with that, Jon and Farrah, Hudson, Walker and the Lester family!
