Changes on the Sox beat

David Scott (h/t Boston Sports Media) has some news about the Globe's Gordon Edes, whose coverage I've always enjoyed (yet whose "Paw-tucket" pronounciation seems off for a native Bay Stater) and a successor (the previously mentioned Heidi Watney) for Tina Cervasio at NESN:

Multiple sources have confirmed to Scott’s Shots that Boston Globe writer, Gordon Edes, has agreed “in principle” to a job with Yahoo! Sports as a national baseball writer. Edes, according to sources, is committed to going to Yahoo!, but was still hoping to be part of the buyout offer at the Globe that recently lured Jackie MacMullan off the masthead.

The specifics of how Edes will leave - either through the buyout or simply by switching teams - are still being ironed out, according to sources.

Multiple Monday night phone and email messages from Shots to Edes were not returned as of posting time (near 1 a.m. Tuesday). (The differentiation could be important because if Edes leaves through the buyout, there may be legal limitations on whether a new body could be inserted into his place.)

In other baseball news:

-- the ProJo's Jim Donaldson, who, in the past, has rapped the Sox at every occasion, seems newly enraptured.
