Off Season Tidings

I am not saying anything we’re all not thinking…that we cannot wait until the 2011 baseball season opens.

Since the PawSox wrapped up their 2011 season, much has happened at McCoy Stadium.  We all mourned the loss of the beloved Ben Mondor.  We all wish Torey Lovullo all the best as he joins the coaching staff of the Toronto Blue Jays.  And we have high hopes for this summer as Arnie Beyeler takes the reigns of the club.

There’s been quite a bit written about the club this offseason.  Before we here at PawSox Blog start our fourth season covering the club, we thought we’d give you a chance to catch-up on some of that information.

First and foremost, make a point to follow the blogs of PawSox radio voices Dan Hoard and Steve Hyder.  They will always have unique insight on the club via their day-to-day access with the team.  Also spend some time with PawSox Director of Security Rick Medeiros.  He always seems to let his inner fandom take over when he writes.  Good stuff.

Sox Prospects has all the news and notes of what’s happening in the Red Sox’ minor league system, including projections on who will likely be starting the 2011 season at McCoy.

Kudos to Steve Hyder, Steve McDonald, and Bendan McGair for being selected as the Rhode Island sportscasters and sportswriter of the year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association of America.  Well deserved.

Stay tuned as we begin to ramp up our coverage of the team as we get closer to spring training.

As we enter our fourth season covering the team, we want to know what we can do to make our coverage of PawSox better.  Get in touch with me with your ideas at keith@pawsoxblog.com.  In the meantime, think warm thoughts and keep April 7th always on your mind.
