    I hope it works. It’ll hurt a lot of really good journalists if it doesn’t.

    It feels very much like a “fake it til you make it” deal unless someone buys the whole operation.

    “Covering the sport of baseball” as in the comings and goings of the MLB?

    Exactly.

    It's a tech start-up

    The laws of gravity don't apply.

    They’re banking on Amazon buying them out in 5 years. Quite the called bluff if they don’t get sold

    Andy is a hell of a writer. He knows it too.

    I think you’re right. Or google. Or someone.

    I'd be surprised if the VC people think it will take that long. 24 months maybe.

    Being acquired is a time-honored strategy in tech.

    That doesn't answer my question...
     
  11. I don't read this thread much, but I just discovered Ed Bouchette, long-time Steelers beat writer for the P-G left this spring to join the Athletic.
    Wondered because I had seen his by-line for sometime. I thought maybe he was on vacation.

    Good get for them and probably - given the P-G's recent fortunes, probably and even better move for Bouchette.
