Because of this, there is no way I can garner righteous indignation for MLB going after ARod for whatever he might or might not have done. But, really, I will experience schadenfreude any time ARod’s name is connected to something negative. *Heidi Watney possibly leaving NESN: This might come as a genuine surprise to some of you, but I really don’t care if she stays or goes.In either event, it doesn’t hurt to take a moment to discuss it a bit.If this is Heidi, I have to thank her for responding.This year, Amy has been fortunate enough to be able to sweeten the pot with the addition of a celebrity date.Red over at Surviving Grady got all the details first hand in his interview with said celebrity.I think she has improved a lot since she joined the NESN team and most of the time actually sounds like she understands the terms coming out of her mouth (one of my biggest issues with her when she started was that any time she used baseball terminology she fumbled over it like it was totally foreign to her.Not what I want from the person assigned to telling me what is going on with the team) and I have been guilty this season of occasionally being entertained by her visits to the food stands during road trips (although I could live a long time without ever having to see her choke down food…you don’t ask someone without legs to dance and I don’t think you should ask Heidi to eat fried food on camera).Now that he covers the Red Sox, his hometown team so to speak, he treats the team with the same disdain he did the Yanks.I think I’ve written this before, but I’m writing it again.I trust nothing when it comes to the comments…this I learned at So before taking it too seriously, I did a little research.
