    Word around the campfire is that sports editor Jim Jenks is bolting for MLB.com.

    I wonder what the chances of them posting an editor position if this is true. My guess is that they will just shuffle responsibilities around to not have to go through the large application process.

    No idea yet, Mayfly. John Quinn is the deputy. But Bill Marimow has displayed a pattern of bringing his own people in since taking over as editor of the paper late last year. New MEs, some new department heads. As with most newspaper decisions these days, it will probably come down to whether Marimow gets the green light to hire.
    With Stephen A. Smith's imminent departure, Claire Smith going to ESPN and Shannon Ryan leaving for the Chicago Tribune, Jenks' leaving puts the Inquirer sports staff down four bodies since August.

    I wonder if they still have ASEs typing in agate on Saturday nights?

    That place is falling apart.

    It is.

    I guess I can't blame Marimow for wanting his own people.

    I hope Jenks jumped and wasn't pushed. He seems like a nice enough guy.

    Good for Jim. Great guy. Wish I were in a position to jump on the Internet bandwagon.

    Jenks has been there for a couple years. He came on board before all the K-R stuff started going down.
