Brad Will Like This Post

Read the following excerpt from Peter Gammons' bio on

Other than the hilarity of the mental images I'm getting here, I have another thought.

Tell me how likely it is that he can objectively cover Major League Baseball in general and the Red Sox in particular. We all know that he's all-Red Sox, all the time, but this just tells us part of the reason why...perhaps Peter has gotten himself a little too close to the organization over the years?

A gifted musician, Gammons' debut CD, "Never Slow Down, Never Grow Old" was released on Rounder Records. With the assistance of a crack band of Boston rockers, Gammons trades in his typewriter for a Stratocaster and delivers a rousing set of vintage classics, originals, and rock obscurities -- all to benefit Theo and Paul Epstein's Foundation to be Named Later, a charity which raises funds and awareness for non-profit agencies serving disadvantaged youth in the Greater Boston area.

Gammons' vocals and guitar are featured, along with guests such as Theo Epstein, Juliana Hatfield, George Thorogood, Little Feat's Paul Barrere, Kay Hanley, and an all-star chorus consisting of Red Sox players Jonathan Papelbon, Kevin Youkilis, Trot Nixon, Lenny DiNardo and Tim Wakefield, former Red Sox pitcher Bronson Arroyo, and NESN broadcaster Don Orsillo.
