Our Boston Sports Insider gave us a 'Good News/Bad News' edition today on the Red Sox' chances of signing free agent pitching ace Corey Kluber.

I think the Red Sox we're probably the front runner to sign him, then he threw this week and apparently looked FANTASTIC and now EVERYBODY is in on him.

 

He lives in Winchester, MA, he married a woman from here so I would think the Red Sox would have the inside track.

 

But now, if the bidding spins out of control, I can't imagine them being the top bidder.

 

- Tom Caron on the Red Sox' Advantage In Acquiring Corey Kluber

Sure enough, this information is genuine! He and his wife Amanda have been married since 2010 and they have three lovely kids and live just a hop, skip and a jump away from Fenway!

Wow, wouldn't that be amazing if playing close to home was the deciding factor?

I've always loved watching this 2 time Cy Young Award winner pitch and think that he would INSTANTLY turn the Sox into a legit contender. With Chris Sale coming back later this year? They'd be a force to be reckoned with.

On another subject, I'm glad to hear that TC does not harbor any resentment towards Tom Brady.

New Englanders 'hating' on Brady has been a strange phenomenon since his departure last March. Just a deep seated, bitter loathing of the man who won SIX Championships for New England.

It felt good to be in a conversation with two other people that feel the same way I do about TB 12. Sadly, about half of the people I talked to despise Tampa Tom.

I'm glad to see 'New England's Most Beloved Sports Personality' agrees with Sarah and me.
