  • Sports Writer fired

    An item in today's paper reports that a sportswriter to the Tampa Tribune was fired for "manipulating the balloting" for a high school sports award. Rozel A. Lee was among 19 journalists and coaches who ranked eight top local HS candidates.

    Rozel admits that she intentionally gave her lowest ranking to a leading candidate, to make it more likely that the player she favored would win the award.

    Isn't it a comfort to know that such shananigans could never happen in MLB awards voting?

        I read that article too, and thought the same thing. It's funny how the newsreporters have become the newsmakers both literally and figureatively.
