Joshua Prager Leaves Wall St Journal
(And Page 2 Has a New Editor)

Joshua Prager was one of the great reporters at the Journal. His article about The Shot Heard Round the World was one of the best newspaper articles about baseball ever, and his book "The Echoing Green" is terrific. You can find it in paperback, just in time for baseball season. His goodbye memo to his colleagues is worth a read.

Oh, and it appears that my alma mater Page 2 has a new editor! (Wonder if Jemele Hill helped make that happen? All these newspaper folks jumping online -- it's like 2001 all over again!)
