Fire Joe Morgan Fires Itself

Sad news on the internet traditions front. The glorious tradition that was Fire Joe Morgan has come to an end.

Fire Joe Morgan devoted itself to skewering the pronouncements of baseball's raft of media "analysts" who never let actual, you know, analysis, get in the way of a dead cliché. The paragon of this practice for the site's purposes was ESPN's Joe Morgan, as the blog's title indicates, but its writers reached out across the country to other sportswriters deserving the back of the hand, and delivered in full measure. What great fun it was to read.

Fire Joe Morgan will be missed. Maybe, someday, like Fafblog, it will return. I can only hope. No, really. As a Giants fan, that's really all I ever get to do.
