Hey, Reds beat-writer John Fay has a blog.


Marc Lancaster obviously opened some eyes in Cincinnati newspaper management with regards to sports blogging, and John Fay is now blogging for the Enquirer. He’ll be giving his Spring Training thoughts, and his opening post makes it sound like it will continue in some form once the season begins. Fay’s writing (one sentence paragraph – quote – one sentence paragraph) actually reads a little better in blog format. Fay’s blogging so far pretty much completely overlaps with C. Trent Rosecrans blogging, but I’m hoping they’ll both be worth reading. More relatively “insider” info is always a good thing.

I agree. I hope Fay takes blogging seriously, as Marc Lancaster did (and as Rosencrans seems to be doing). These guys see and hear a lot that won’t fit in the print edition of the paper, as Lancaster noted in his interview with Redleg Nation. A blog is the perfect supplement to help keep readers informed.
