One of my very favorite prospects in the Cardinals' system, David Kopp
, is blogging for MLB
. Kind of cool to get the players' perspective; everyone gets to hear what loudmouths like myself have to say all the time, but it's much more unusual to actually get the scoop from inside the game itself.
Of course, this also means that if athletes and the like continue to do more and more of their own writing and promotion and such, said loudmouths will likely cease to be necessary. So, you know, as much as I like Kopp and all, I can't really wish him much luck in his blogging venture. Hopefully, he fails miserably and just has to concentrate on his pitching.
What? Oh, come on. I'm totally joking. Well, mostly joking.
Hey, a man's got to eat, right?
