Can You Dig It?

As MSMers put out an APB on bloggers trying to make it back to Coney following the Outside the Lines summit on ESPN, SI's Joe Posnanski serves as one of the few mainstream voices of reason as he offers a fair and honest account of the @Jerodmsf/Ibanez/Rosenthal/Gonzalez fallout.

In this week's issue of the magazine, Posnanski pens Without A Clue: In the steroid age, those who cover the game struggle to describe what they see, noting, "The shame of it was that the conversation reignited the tedious mainstream-media-versus-bloggers conflict when, instead, it should have been about how Morris was simply wrestling with the same thing we all wrestle with."

Appropriately, the story hits mailboxes the day people are blowing up over the NYT article indicating that slugger Sammy Sosa tested positive to PED use in 2003.
