Solid as a Rock

Why bother blogging when Rich Lederer is doing such a bang-up job? Rich has long championed Bert Blyleven’s candidacy for the Hall of Fame (hey, Bill Conlin  is actually voting for Blyleven this year). Now, he takes on a new case: Rock Raines . If you think I’ve beat this horse into the ground already, well, get used to it. I’m on the Raines  bandwagon.
Okay, here’s a random question for the day: If you could read a biography of any sports writer who would it be? And I’m not talking about a book that has already been written. Or maybe the better question is this: What major sports writer most deserves a serious biography? Jim Murray , Dick Young , W.C. Heinz ? Who would you be interested in reading about?
