We all add to the discourse and consumption of the Washington Nationals, just like the professional publications do. There are two things that separate bloggers from "the press": editorial process and access. The editorial process has long been a primary concern of Major League Baseball and it's Advanced Media department (MLBAM), which governs its electronically published content.
The access issue is a two-fold concern: Teams are concerned about security and papers are concerned about exclusivity.
Saturday was a big step in that direction.
Remember this: an educated consumer is a better customer.
