The Life of a Baseball Beat Writer

This Hardball Times article is about a month old but still well worth reading. It's a bit of a game-changer for me. As much as the Sullys and Gordos (and, lately, Mooneys) of the world annoy me, they have a pretty grueling job. And when you combine that with following a team that's been losing many more games than it's won over the last few years, maybe their cynicism and impatience is a little easier to understand.
