I hate mainstream sports media columns like this, which (a) rip bloggers and (b) show a glaring lack of understanding about blogs, sports media and fans.
At best, Mike Wise comes across like a desperate columnist looking for traction in the blogosphere by inciting it. At worst, he comes across like a fool. He accomplishes both.
And, either way, his loss. I'll have more reaction to this when I have a chance to sit down and really write out an analysis of where he goes so very very wrong. -- D.S.
P.S.: Great to see and meet everyone who went out to the Deadspin East Coast Pants Party last night at the Mets-A's game. Fun time all around.
