Bring itMLBAM is launching its own online, opinion-based "tabloid" in May:
MLB Advanced Media will formally announce today that in May it will debut what's meant to be a online baseball newspaper featuring columnists, including NBC/MSNBC's Keith Olbermann . . .
Let's see, fiftysomething ex-newspaper men writing opinions about baseball while being paid by Major League Baseball. I can't wait until I read the tenth version of "Commissioner Selig: Merely great, or the greatest ever?"
Not that I'm complaining. I've been putting off bookmarking all of the columnists I can't stand in one single folder, and now that they'll all be arranged in a virtual barrel, it will make my duck-shooting all the easier.

The problem isn’t the age of the writers, it’s the availability and accessibility of information. To take an example from an earlier link, we don’t necessarily need to read a column to see that Mike Scioscia is trotting out some strange lineups, because we don’t need to dig the sports pages out of the brown paper bag of old papers to compare the lineup choices of the last few days or week. baseball-reference.com gives us all that and more.

Excellent snark. I was reading the blurb thinking “Oh no, just when I thought I was through with (fill in the blank).”
As you said, they’ll all be there in one spot for your delectation.

Oh no. Few adore Olbermann more than I, but I think he’s jumped the snark and landed in shrill invective. Maybe a return to the relative civility of baseball commentary (as compared to politics) will tame the acidity.
