Marty Noble- The Epitome of a New York Baseball Writer

One of the great New York sportswriters has passed away at the age of 70. You don’t know the Mets if you don’t know Noble.

I’m often critical of the media. Around here, I believe many writers view it in large part as an extension of the public relations department.

In some other markets, the media are viewed as assassins.

One such market in which the latter is said to prevail is, of course, New York City.
