I started El Guapo’s Ghost a little over a year ago now. Originally, my thought was that if real journalists are taking my questions and posting my replies than I should start publishing the crazy crap that comes out of my mouth. Now, I realize that it has become a better outlet than message boards - less interaction = less wasting time - for my near compulsion with the Red Sox. In summary, this blog helps keep me from hurting myself and others 162 plus times during the year.
Any how - for those of you that are stopping by for the first time or are a new visitor, I try to provide my readers with original Sox content. I hope you find most of it entertaining, funny and informative. I assume that you all have either watched, read and/or heard about the previous day’s Sox game. Thus, I rarely recap games. I also try, although not with too much success, to limit the amount of links to other Sox articles. If I do, it is usually to comment on a particularly interesting and/or foolish notion or to link an article out of the Sox mainstream. Since we are “on a Break,” here are some samples: Q&A with Jim Caple of ESPN.com, Bob Dutton of the K.C. Star, and Steve Kettmann, author of One Day at Fenway (Part 1 and Part 2), Beltran is not a difference maker, ERA is an overvalued stat, Ramblings and signing Tek to a long-term deal is very risky.
I hope you continue to stop by often as I update the blog about five times a week. Please patronage our sponsors too! They underwrite ticket give-a-aways.
