Shots Followup

Word about the Scott’s Shots article on Michael Gee is making its way around the internet. The story was picked up by Romenesko of Poynter Online, right under a link to a story in today’s Herald about a couple of Lawrence Eagle-Tribune staffers getting suspended for speaking out about the paper’s new race policy. (A hot topic at a lot of papers, from what I hear.) Joe Strupp of the Editor and Publisher has more on the story, as he did a bit of a follow up on what happened. Baseball Think Factory also has a link to the story.

Dave Doyle has some thoughts about the article as well as about BSMW in general as he examines the changing attitude towards online media.

Michael Felger has a short piece for The Sporting News website entitled “Preparing for life without Bruschi” in which he looks at the offseason pickups the Patriots have made at linebacker. WEEI has been quoting a Kansas City radio station today as having reported that Ty Law has agreed to a deal with the Chiefs, pending a physical.

Random Quote

This is the ultimate dilemma. Of course fans want the Red Sox to win the World Series, but the dilemma is be careful what you wish for because you might get it. And if the Red Sox played the Cubs in the World Series, one of those two franchises will be permanently and forever altered. One of them will never be the same. So remember, while winning is the ultimate goal. If you’re a Sox fan or a Cubs fan, it carries a steep price tag. Life will never be the same.
