On The Other Hand
While you might not want to care what they think about the 2009 standings, baseball writers can be really good at what they’re paid to do – write. In particular, Larry Stone is tremendous at making columns about baseball amazingly fun to read.
Today, he’s got another great one on the relationships players have with their bats. It’s more of Stone at his best, as he is often, and evidence of why the newspaper isn’t dead yet. As long as they still have people like him writing for them, they’ll always have an audience.
