The rumor started spreading Tuesday amongst the Yankee bloggers – Peter Abraham, one of our best sources for information was leaving his spot at the Journal News – a suburban newspaper dedicated mostly to Westchester and Rockland Counties just above NYC.

It was officially confirmed this morning on Abraham’s blog.  He has accepted a beat writer position covering, unfortunately, the Boston Red Sox for the Boston Globe.  Abraham is originally from Massachusetts and presumably this move allows him to be closer to family.  We can also only assume it is a higher paying job – going from a suburban newspaper to a much larger metro newspaper would most likely mean a pay increase.

A part of me is sad to lose PeteAbe as a writer.  I don’t think I ever picked up a copy of the Journal News to read his writing, but I’ve read his story on the website and his blog is one of the best maintained in the business.  His last day with the Journal News will be September 29.

I assume that someone like Sam Borden will continue the blog at Lohud Yankees and we will have the opportunity to get in-depth Red Sox news through Peter Abraham.

Good Luck, Pete!
