Q&A With New Red Sox Beat Writer Peter Abraham

By

Peter Abraham will be joining the Boston Globe to cover the Red Sox very soon, and he was nice enough to answer a few questions for us.

FW: Will you have your own blog with the Globe or will you blog as a part of Extra Bases?

Peter Abraham: I will be blogging for Extra Bases but the plan is to really ramp it up with plenty of content, new features, multi-media, etc.

FW: Who was your favorite player growing up?  

Peter Abraham: Probably George Brett, who I really admired as a hitter. I also watched a lot of Braves games on cable and liked Dale Murphy. And like every kid in New England of a certain age, I tried to make diving catches in my back yard like Freddy Lynn did.


FW: What are you most excited about in the new job?

Peter Abraham:  I’ve wanted to work for the Globe since I started in the newspaper business when I was a 16-year-old part-timer at The Standard Times in New Bedford. The additional benefit if I get to live close to my parents and sisters and their respective families. Plus I have a lot of friends in New England from college and previous jobs.

FW: Do you think the Red Sox and Yankees will meet in the ALCS?

Peter Abraham: I actually do and I wrote that before I got my new job. I think they have the two best teams in the league — assuming Beckett and Lester are healthy.
