Forget the writers covering other sports, the baseball scribes can be vicious and sadistic with a lot of misplaced anger. I can imagine Dennis Deitch grabbing the one guy by the dreadlocks and swinging him overhead while Todd Zolecki, Marcus Hayes and Mike Radano kick the other guy into submission like Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci and Robert DeNiro in that scene at the Suite Lounge in Goodfellas.
Kevin Roberts? Geez... never make eye contact with that guy. Ken Mandel has done hard time. And Scott Lauber -- I don't even want to know.
