Must-Read for Any Critical Nats Fan

Posted by Dave Nichols | Tuesday, February 24, 2009 | , , , , | 5 comments »

Brian over at Nationals Farm Authority, one of the best blogs we have in the Natosphere, has a comprehensive interview with Keith Law, former Toronto Blue Jays executive and former writer for Baseball Prospectus. He currently is a blogger/columnist for ESPN.com.

Law is candid, engaging and comprehensive in his opinions he shared with Brian, and Brian asked all the right questions. If you're reading my blog, then you definitely want to take the 10 minutes to click on the link above and read this interview.

It should be mandatory reading for some of the Nats' less-nuanced fans as well, as Law's opinions take the candy-coating off the public relations the Nats themselves and MLB.com provide and gives a more honest, critical assessment of some of the players in the organization that tend to get overhyped.

Congrats to Brian on a fantastic interview.

    ABM, Law is a nationally syndicated columnist for ESPN.com, and has long been known as one of the brightest talent evaluators in the game. Law writes muliple columns a week at ESPN.com and hosts a chat every week. you can see his column here (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?name=law_keith)

    his joke about "hating all teams equally" come from comments he gets in his job, as in any time he criticizes a team for a move he automatically "hates" that team.

    this interview should be taken as just another example of independant evaluation of the state of the Nationals. you are free to take it with as many grains of salt you like.

    ABM, i know you're a "glass half-full" guy, while i tend to be the voice of doom and gloom, and that's ok. i really appreciate your continued comments to my posts. it's great to be able to have a dialog. i wish more people would leave posts.

    i fully appreciate that i'm the voice of doom and gloom and that i think i'm always right. that's why i have a blog, to publish my opinion. but as i said, it's great to have feedback and someone to keep me in line.

    and i guess you at least find my opinion interesting enough to keep reading it!
