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 [1] is actually voting for Blyleven this year). Now, he takes on a new case: Rock Raines [2]. If you think I’ve beat this horse into the ground already, well, get used to it. I’m on the Raines [3] 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 [4], Dick Young [5], W.C. Heinz [6]? Who would you be interested in reading about?
