Double Time

BenjedminThe nexus of popular culture and the Red Sox, so ably started by players starring in “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” and Curt Schilling’s appearance on “Celebrity Poker,” has now culminated in the unveiling of co-GMs Ben Cherington and Jed Hoyer. The offices at 4 Yawkey Way should be called the “baseball soap opera-tions department.” In a media event rivaling A.J. Pierzynski’s TNA (Total Nonstop Action, or so I’m told) Wrestling appearance, the New Hampshire pair was announced as the new joint leaders of the Boston club yesterday.

These days, each and every media couple must have a fused moniker, alà “Brangelina” and “Bennifer II.” Obviously, the new Red Sox baseball operations duo should be referred to as “Benjedmin” henceforth. The Patriot Ledger is putting forth the “Ben and Jeddy” option, but we’re talking show business here, not the snow cone business.

Here’s hoping for a long and productive pairing, unlike like most celebrity dyads.


You mention AJ Pierzynski's appearence ringside at the recent TNA Pay Per View, but neglect that he and his chosens table gained victory via timely assist from none other than Johnny Damon? Who else but every one's favortie caveman outfielder was the one to appear from the crowd to give Pierzynski a home plate, which he promptly decked his opponent with.

I thoroughly enjoy not only your Sox coverage but all your writing [/blatant sucking up], however your professional wrestling reporting could use some work.

You're completely correct, NU50. There is an entirely unforgivable lack of depth in terms of my professional wrestling coverage.

Brushing up on the labyrinthine storylines of both WWE and TNA are near the top of my New Year's resolutions, along with knitting a life-sized Nelson de la Rosa and recreating the Huntington Avenue Grounds with toothpicks and moss.
