« Nats lose series, but earn moral victory by not contracting La Russa's horrific pinkeye | Main | When Bryce Harper ran headfirst into that wall »

April 22, 2011


Ray makes a good point. On the other hand, you don't want to pull a Mike Wise on Bruce Boudreau question about the "tenure of your job" either.

It took a reporter from a small town paper to get to ask Bryce Harper what changed with his plate approach and he answered he now can see the ball better now that he is wearing contacts. So I ask myself, how come nobody at the Washington Post or Washington Times or Comcast got that scoop?

Amen Ray! I wish only actual journalists were allowed to cover the team..that means news papers would have to hire some, this market is a joke for writers and the fact that bloggers know more than the writers is even more worrisome.

Harper_ROY_2012 - How's about Chico Harlan who admitted that baseball wasn't his dream job and was the Washington Post beat reporter for the Nats.

Most ask the same tiresome questions with no analysis as if they weren't watching the game.

Kilgore every once in a while comes up with some good nuggets but even when they have something in front of them most are too afraid to ask a probing question for fear of getting their head bit off or losing their access or credentials.

@Michael: Disagree. I find most of the Nats beat writers to be good, informative. I doubt any of them would be afraid to ask a probing question for fear of losing access. No way.

@Harper_ROY_2012: Definitely don't agree that this statement is fact: "the fact that bloggers know more than the writers is even more worrisome" ...you don't really believe that, do you?

@Michael @Harper_ROY_2012 also have a sneaking suspicion Knight's comments weren't directed at members of the print/web media (despite what he says about "every dot com" etc.)
