Sometimes there can be a rift between bloggers and members of the traditional media. However, there’s really no reason to compare because blogs and newspapers aren’t really competing formats. Journalists hunt down the stories and try to present them objectively, while bloggers analyze, aggregate, and provide opinions.
MLB Trade Rumors would be nothing without journalists; they’re the ones actually digging up the rumors. With that in mind, I’m starting a new feature called Rumor Royalty. I will choose the one journalist for each team who I feel has done the most for us hot stove junkies. Then I’ll contact each person with three rumor-related questions for publication on the site, if they’re willing. Sound good?
