Required reading- The Blue Jay Hunter on Scott Richmond

A tip of the cap to Ian at the Blue Jay Hunter for his excellent Scott Richmond piece posted today in anticipation of the 29 year-old rookie's start tonight.

Ian interviews Richmond's dad, Dr. Bob Richmond, a chiropractor now based in New Brunswick. Papa Richmond recounts Scott's youthful sporting endeavours, and his long road to the big leagues.

It's great to see a very fine Blue Jays blog commit a random act of journalism such as this one. Kudos, Ian.

Thanks for the shoutout, Tao. But in all fairness, Bob Richmond provided most of the great content. He's a very proud baseball dad that really knows his baseball.

Does anyone actually know if it is Bob posting on Wilner's blog?

My God, but that's a good piece of writing.

Thank you for your continued dedication to the team, the sport and the blogging community in bringing us these brilliant nuggets from around the world.

And Ian... Don't ever stop writing.

I think that's the second time those dudes were sitting in the Action Seats in the umpire getup. Though I noticed tonight that the one dude had a mask to go with it. Commitment to the bit.
