Rochester D&C's Matthews takes buyout

    Bob Matthews, the longtime columnist at the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, took the latest buyout from Gannett. It will be interesting to see if he's replaced. He's the only full-time sports columnist on the staff, and it seems to me a paper of that size should have a full-time columnist.

    I got to know Bob a little bit when I spent a few months in the sports department a few years ago. I wish him the best of luck.

    Happy retirement, Bob.

    As for a columnist, they should've kept Scott Pitoniak when they had the chance.
