I was hoping to keep this quiet another day or two so I could compose my thoughts. But that’s not possible these days.
So here it is: I’m leaving The Journal News after nearly 10 years and going to work for The Boston Globe.
I’ll be covering baseball — yes, the Red Sox — and blogging for Boston.com. The Globe approached me in August, right around the time my newspaper was going through some painful restructuring that you all heard about.
I , for one, used to really enjoy Pete's "everyman" kind of take on the Yanks. Kind of like a fan with a press pass. Lately, I haven't enjoyed his complaining- about A-Rod, the new Stadium, etc... - kind of like a fan with press pass. So best of luck Pete- you can tirade anti-A-Rod-style to your heart's content now, with a captive audience.
