By Contrast, the underground rag is more honest & straightforward, and tells
it like it is; both good & bad. I believe it also covers more up to date
coverage of the Sox & incoming teams, as well as Sox-minor league info.
I think the courts have a temporary restraining order (or something like that)
on the sale of the rag outside the immediate confines of "Friendly Fenway".
But I'm not sure if it has been totally resolved.

There have been a few articles in the Globe about this battle between
the well connect baseball team vs. the little guy. One theory is that
the Sox hoped that if he was indicted for selling without a license that
the operation would shhut down because he couldn't afford legal
protection. But in this case, his mom is a lawyer. He also seems to be
pretty good at P.R. He is getting lots of press now, and it all seems
to be good.
The city has indicted for selling without a license. Somehow the city
thinks this issue is outside the first amendment. Something about
arguing that "BU" is not a periodical publication. I don't understand
why this would make any difference. Maybe some lawyer type could
explain to me what the difference is. Nonetheless, I would expect the
city to lose this case. Of course, the Sox and their friends in city
hall may be able to do the unexpected.
Baseball Underground is a much better publication than the Red Sox
program, and with pencil its less than half the price. I don't mean to
imply that BU is Shakespeare, but its certainly much more informative
than the official Red Sox stuff. And frankly, the Red Sox publications
are pretty poor in comparison to the stuff that I've seen from some other
major league clubs.
