Fox Sports Going Video Leaves Ken Rosenthal Looking For A New Writing Gig

A usual go-to for breaking news throughout the year, Fox Sports Ken Rosenthal may possibly end up without a job at Fox Sports soon.

The writer for Fox Sports since 2005 expressed on Twitter late yesterday that he is “writing without a home” explaining that Fox Sports has now become a video exclusive website – making his frequent columns now obsolete.

As previously mentioned, Rosenthal is arguably the most accomplished and recognizable writers in baseball today, working with Fox Sports. A recognizable face in the sport, he is often the first to break news when it is brewing – and it’s only fitting that he breaks the news first to the baseball universe of the executive decision by Fox to switch to video.

Despite no longer writing with Fox Sports, he will continue to be a part of the television coverage. A possible contractual restriction makes it so he cannot write for other publications (he is currently posting his work to his Facebook page. No, seriously.) While he is a major part of the Fox Sports broadcast crew for prime time baseball and a daily regular on MLB Network, it is likely that he will find a new home soon. A potentially poor move by Fox Sports could end up with them having to let go the Mike Trout of sports media.

But there’s always new beginnings for you Ken. Plenty of places would love to have you. May I recommend Trifecta Network?

Tyler is currently covering the Celtics for the upcoming season, as well as providing coverage for the MLB on occasion. He has written for The Georgetowner Newspaper in Washington, DC as well as providing work for the Red Sox on Fansided. He is fan of Hayley Williams, Seinfeld, and cold beer.

Minimum Expectations for the 2018 Red Sox

Last year, it was Chris Sale; in 2016, the exorbitantly expensive David Price was all the hype. Both of these roundly heralded saviors produced the same underwhelming results. Another short-winded trip to the playoffs; another bummer of a year.

The Red Sox simply cannot afford a third consecutive first-round exit, in the 2018 postseason. And it seems that Dave Dombrowski knows this. In an attempt to prevent car-flipping anarchy in the streets, he fired the overseer of all this recent failure (his direct subordinate) – John Farrell.

Now the Sox will be heading into next season with a newfangled remedy. No, it’s not a hundred-million dollar player. This time around, management has received the upgrade. It’s the newly hired manager, Alex Cora, who will be charged with the burden of resurrecting one of the most venerated franchises in professional sports.

On Monday, Cora was formally introduced to Boston as the new manager (or scapegoat).

Good luck, buddy! You’re gonna need it.  

Should Boston fans really expect an appreciable change to be affected by just one man? After all, this is exactly what we’ve done, to no avail, for the past few years. And if Cora really represents the end-all-be-all solution, what is a realistic accomplishment for him, and his club, in the first season of his tenure?

After watching the Houston Astros win the 2017 World Series, Red Sox fans deserve to be upset.

Go ahead and sink into your bed of indignance, for a couple of days, and don’t let anyone stop you, Red Sox Nation. You’re safe there.  

The asseveration has lingered on the tip of Boston’s tongue, ever since the ALDS – “That could have been us!” And it’s true, it could have been the Sox hoisting that trophy, on Wednesday night.

Boston Red Sox

After experiencing an extremely disheartening loss, what is the most natural and most mature thing to do? Search for a scapegoat, of course. Why accept the reality of a bad situation? It’s much easier to deflect those negative feelings towards somebody or something else.

In an effort to alleviate the aching heart of Red Sox Nation, let’s examine the three individuals who are the most responsible for Boston’s defeat in the 2017 ALDS. After all, somebody must be to blame for this debacle! It certainly wasn’t the team as a collective entity, but singular players (or managers like John Farrell) who can be villainized for underperforming in the series.
