Gordon Edes at Camden Yards in 2008


Gordon Edes is an American sportswriter and covers baseball for ESPN Boston. He is best known for his long time coverage of the Boston Red Sox baseball beat for the Boston Globe. He is a voter for the Baseball Hall of Famemarker.

He attended High School at Lunenburg High School in Lunenburg, Massachusettsmarker, graduating in 1972.

Other media

While with the Globe, he was also a frequent guest on WBZmarker television's Sports Final program then hosted by Bob Lobel and a regular contributor to Soxcast, a Boston Globe podcast about the Red Sox.

Confrontation with Carl Everett

Edes is famous in Boston for his club house confrontation with former Red Sox outfielder Carl Everett. Everett, who had been the subject of several critical columns by Globe sportswriters, told Edes to get away from him and take his "curly-haired boyfriend" with him. He was referring to Dan Shaughnessy, another sportswriter with the Globe. The nickname, shortened to CHB, has stuck with Shaughnessy since, even being used by ESPN columnist Bill Simmons in his work.

Theo Epstein Wedding

In January 2007, Edes fell victim to a prank by Leslie Epstein, father of Red Sox Executive Vice President/General Manager Theo Epstein. In response to an email from Edes, Leslie Epstein confirmed that his son had secretly married Marie Whitney. In the email, however, Epstein stated the site of the wedding was Nathan's Famous hot dog stand at Coney Islandmarker. Edes published this only to be later told by Epstein that he was joking about the location.
"Neither Theo or Marie has ever been to Coney Island as far as I know, or has ever tasted a Nathan’s Famous (though I have -- perfectly delicious), and Rabbi Schnitzlebaum slept undisturbed all day long.
In short, not a word of it was meant to be taken seriously."
It was later reported that the actual location of the wedding was Red Sox owner John Henry's yacht.
