Baseball and Boston

Oct 23, 2013

Scott Soshnick at Bloomberg News put together MLB Team Valuations. Brendan Coffey there tweeted: “Sox worth $2.1 B, Cards $805 Mln. Cool graphics on baseball values here.” Colleague Laura Marcinek pointed out, “Mr. @BobMarcinek would appreciate the sort-by-wins function here.” Chris Branch with the News Journal wrote, “According to Bloomberg, #Phillies are 9th most valuable team in the majors.”

Speaking of baseball (as though we know what’s going on), the Boston Globe kindly requests: Please, banish ‘Sweet Caroline’ from Fenway Park. Martine Powers there agreed: “Yes yes yes a thousand times yes.” Barb Darrow at GigaOM tweeted: “Amen to this!” Colin Steele with TechTarget said, “Yes, at least when we’re losing.” Adam Chandler from Tablet Magazine had another idea, “Ban the chorus, then we'll see what's what.” David Kenner at Foreign Policy Magazine suggested: “Globe account must've been hacked.”

In other Boston news, the Associated Press reports that prosecutors now believe Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev may have been involved in a 2011 triple homicide. Stefan Becket with New York Magazine explained, “Friend of Tamerlan shot and killed by FBI agents in Florida had told agents Tamerlan was involved in triple homicide.” Rosie Gray at BuzzFeed wrote, “Ibragim Todashev told FBI Tamerlan Tsarnaev was involved in 2011 triple homicide in Waltham.” Colleague Andrew Kaczynski tweeted: “So it turns out @RosieGray was on to something.” Laura Rozen at Al-Monitor pointed out this all happened “before FBI killed Todashev.”
