Brief Thoughts on Five "Scoops" Guys

4
  1. Jayson Stark: cheesy (somewhat enjoyably so), master of the "anonymous scout/official from rival club" quote, superfluous "y" in first name makes me suspect he is a long-lost Nix brother.
  2. Ken Rosenthal: good at getting scoops, poor analytical skills counterbalanced by tremendous resemblance to Rocky the Flying Squirrel.
  3. Buster Olney: Heard this: despite occasional outbursts of fogey-ness, Olney is easily the best analyst in this genre, worth reading for more than just rumors and inside information.
  4. Jon Paul Morosi: Rosenthal-in-training, you can tell by the haircut.
  5. Jon Heyman: LOL.
