Another step for alternative media was reached today when the Baseball Writers Association of America included Rob Neyer and Keith Law of ESPN, as well as Will Carroll and Christina Kahrl of Baseball Prospectus onto their rolls.
It is well known that many questioned the non-inclusion of Neyer and Law last year, and seeing the BBWAA select them this year certainly is good news for the increased visibility of those that use the Internet as their main platform to write from.
As for Will Carroll, well... I had lunch with him yesterday here in Las Vegas and spent a good deal of time chatting. Will's a heck of a guy, but the fact that he never once mentioned that was up for consideration either shows that he knows not to let the cat out of the bag, or he's really worried I might have written something on it.
As for Christina, she is an outstanding managing editor for BP, and one heck of a great writer, as well.
Once again, good news for those that enjoy content from both print and Internet sources.
