Roch Kubatko is heading to MASN, as reported by MSN, Camden Chat, and – go figure – MASN. It would be easy to overlook a very interesting element of this story, which is buried in one of the last grafs no matter who’s doing the telling.
“His blog, called Roch Around the clock, drew the most traffic at the Sun’s Web site, attracting 100,000 page views every week, and was one of the most-visited sports blogs throughout the Tribune Co.’s newspapers.”
Check that 100,000 page views figure and the blog’s ranking against other Tribune sports blogs. Clearly, there’s still a passion for baseball in Baltimore; it was on display in Cooperstown last summer and remains alive and well if you know where to look for it. Hopefully that passion will return to Camden Yards full time in the near future. Just the sniff of a competitor did so earlier this summer.
