Great Beat Writers

Baseball is a looong season, so having a great beat writer is important. They summarize what happened in the game, but more importantly what's happening with the team. Henry Schulman of the Chronicle is one of the best and I never miss his articles on the Giants. I loved this lead in:

"The Giants are the inebriate at the bar who cannot recognize that you and your sweetie want to be alone. They are bill collectors. They are street-sweeping trucks on the Nimitz, Birkenstocks and "Survivor."

They will not go away."
