FanGraphs Audio: Alex Speier, Very Lettered Beat Reporter

Episode 377
Alex Speier both (a) provides written and audio content to Boston radio station WEEI as one of that site’s Red Sox beat reporters and also (b) is the sort of beat reporter who endeavors to fulfill his duties with a spirit of inquiry. He’s also the guest on this edition of FanGraphs Audio, recorded live on tape from within Fenway Park’s actual press-box cafeteria.

    I generally love Speier’s beat reporting, but his piece about the Red Sox vs. good pitching on today – prompted, of course, by one poor performance with tons of randomness issues – is all over the place. Starting with a list of pitchers who do not necessarily pitch for playoff teams being characterized as the pitching they’ll see in the playoffs. And including the point that they – even though they appear to be a playoff team – don’t have that kind of pitching, whatever it is supposed to be.
