Red Sox Digest 16th Feb 2007
All the Red Sox news that's fit to print

Every morning before work I go through the online papers and pick out the best of the Boston Red Sox related articles in the Globe, Herald and many others so you can just sit there, point, click and read. Considering I am five hours ahead of the East Coast of the USA, I am posting this as most of your alarm clocks go off over there. Enjoy.

Straight to business, and, as Beavis would often say, 'I have one question.'

Why, with all the furore and general fuss over Daisuke is the media completely ignoring Hideki? Did you, reader, even know the Sox signed another Japanese star pitcher, lefty reliever Hideki Okajima, who wants people to call him, 'Okaji'

The other Japanese dude

Without further ado...here's the news..

That's a pretty good idea...using your timezone to your advantage! I did the same for a little bit when I was blogging. I was working 2nd/3rd shift so I'd get home at 4am and post the day's news before most people were awake.

Thanks! I am really hoping to turn the 'Morning digest' into essential reading for all Sox fans, making their mornings easier by having all the good news on one page as clickable links. Thanks for the feedback.
