And so, it became official this morning. As expected, the Washington Times Sports Department is done, effective Friday. Mark Zuckerman's farewell post over at Chatter is a must-read.
We'd be remiss if we didn't offer good luck and best wishes to the entire Washington Times Sports department -- like Steinberg said this morning over at the Bog: DC as a sports town takes a serious hit in the wake of this news. This is bad news for DC sports fans.
But our most pressing concern here, of course, is the Nats. This is bad, bad, bad, news for Nationals fans who crave smart, credible coverage of the team we love. So, the Nationals Enquirer staff would like to take a moment say a big "Thank You" to Mark Zuckerman and Ben Goessling for what you provided to Nationals fans. Good luck and best wishes. You'll be missed.
