    Sam Yoon, former Boston City Councilor and 2009 mayoral candidate, is moving to the Washington, DC area -- a move, he tells the Phoenix, that comes in part from the sense that he is "radioactive" for potential employers in Boston.

    Speaking of innings, how psyched must Menino be that the Sox made the playoffs, so nobody in town could possibly find themselves accidentally taking interest in the mayoral race.
