Here’s a link to a nice article in the Emory Wheel about new Yankees beat writer Ben Shpigel – who will be covering the team for the Times this season. A clip from it:
As he moves into his new role covering the Yankees, Shpigel will undoubtedly have new challenges and experiences.
“I imagine that just the way the Yankees operate is different from the Mets,” Shpigel says. “I don’t necessarily think that a good team means a good story, but the Yankees are a great team and they’ll be interesting to cover.”
There’s been more than one writer to “graduate” from the Mets beat to later cover the Yankees. And, I think that says something about both franchises.
Shpigel seems like a really good guy. And, I look forward to reading his coverage of the Yankees this year.
