Roy Meets ESPN’s Buster Olney
I had the pleasure of meeting ESPN’s Buster Olney at a family reunion over the weekend, Buster being a friend of my in-law’s. What was nice was having the opportunity to talk shop with the Baseball Tonight analyst and seeing that he genuinely loved the game. I asked him about who he thought would start in center for the Sox on Opening Day (Jackie Bradle, Jr.) and potential landing spots for Stephen Drew (Sox and maybe the Mets, but the Mets aren’t really in spending mode). And later in the conversation, and I loved this, he said “and this is off the record”– which I can’t talk about because, y’know, it’s off the record. Thanks for indulging me, Buster!
