Other media[edit] While with the Globe, he was also a frequent guest on WBZ television's Sports Final program then hosted by Bob Lobel and a regular contributor to Soxcast, a Boston Globe podcast about the Red Sox. Edes previously worked for the Chicago Tribune (1972-80), Los Angeles Times (1980-89), The National sports daily (1990-91) and the Sun-Sentinel newspapers of South Florida (1991-96). He worked for Boston Globe for 10 years, and then briefly for Yahoo's Sports Unit, before joining ESPN's baseball team for Boston in 2010. He left ESPN in 2015 when he was appointed team historian for the Boston Red Sox.


Confrontation with Carl Everett[edit] Edes is famous in Boston for his club house confrontation with former Red Sox outfielder Carl Everett. Everett, who had been the subject of several critical columns by Globe sportswriters, told Edes to get away from him and take his "curly-haired boyfriend" with him. He was referring to Dan Shaughnessy, another sportswriter with the Globe. The nickname, shortened to CHB, has stuck with Shaughnessy since, even being used by former ESPN columnist Bill Simmons in his work.


Theo Epstein Wedding[edit] In January 2007, Edes fell victim to a prank by Leslie Epstein, father of Red Sox Executive Vice President/General Manager Theo Epstein. In response to an email from Edes, Leslie Epstein confirmed that his son had secretly married Marie Whitney. In the email, however, Epstein stated the site of the wedding was Nathan's Famous hot dog stand at Coney Island.[3] Edes published this only to be later told by Epstein that he was joking about the location. "Neither Theo or Marie has ever been to Coney Island as far as I know, or has ever tasted a Nathan’s Famous (though I have -- perfectly delicious), and Rabbi Schnitzlebaum slept undisturbed all day long. In short, not a word of it was meant to be taken seriously." [4] It was later reported that the actual location of the wedding was Red Sox owner John Henry's yacht.[5]
