Today’s big headline involves a career move by one of Beerleaguer’s favorite beat writers.
Scott Lauber, who has provided News-Journal and Beerleaguer readers with a plethora of thought-provoking conversation over the years, is moving on to the Boston Herald, where he’ll join Mike Silverman in covering the Red Sox. Lauber, who attended Boston University, has covered the Phillies for the past four years in print and on his blog and describes the experience as the best job he's ever had. Scott also worked with me in supplying features for the Maple Street Press Phillies Annual the last two seasons and always did a terrific job. The 2010 edition arrives on newsstands March 2 and can be ordered online here. We extend a big Beerleaguer 'best of luck' to Scott. His coverage will be deeply missed.
