  1. They do have Timmah though. I gave it a try... while there do seem to be a few good articles, I haven't been particularly impressed with the quantity. I'll be curious to see what comes out during the season.
  2. This was the last time he came back from a stroke... who remembers this?
  3. I agree... I wish they had changed something with the turf design besides the size of the logo. It hasn't changed since they overhauled the uniforms, right?
  4. Chris Brown's "tidbits" are more valuable that McBean's pressers. "Gotta watch the tape", etc comes from McDermott while we get actual information from Brown. Can we put Brown in front of the press at the end of games instead of McDermott?
  5. There are some beat writers (like Wawrow) that seem to be insightful and well connected enough that they are generally liked in these parts.
  6. Chris Kelsay is certainly up there if "TBD Whipping Boy" is part of this equation.
  7. It's interesting, I'm 34 and my wife is 32 and we both recently started to watch the news in the mornings. In Seattle the print media has, for all intents and purposes, died. The Times is a shell of its former self and the PI has been out of print for 10 years now. The suburban local papers also died. The only digital "news" comes from retired folk and stay-at-home moms who moan and complain on Facebook and Twitter. No one is reporting on news in say North Bend, Snohomish, or Kent aside from the TV stations. I didn't watch local news until recently and it's actually kind of nice to get news that isn't 100% Seattle-centric. You can learn about what's going on in our neck of the woods from actual journalists instead of serial complainers. The internet is definitely the best source for international and national news. I think it has filled the gap for major metros like NYC, Chicago, LA, Seattle, etc. But if you don't live in one of those cities, you aren't getting local news on the internet. The TV (or the paper, if it still exists) is your only option.
  8. That is very interesting, thanks for the insight. I agree - if McCarron wanted out, you had to get rid of him. But neglecting to replace him was indeed short-sighted.
  9. The decision to keep Peterman over McCarron was a huge blunder on both their parts. I cannot possibly believe that McCarron's performance would have been worse than Peterman's.
