I looked and didn’t see this on Twinsdaily. Like a great baseball writer before him (Reusse), LaVelle E Neal III is being promoted from beat writer for the Twins to columnist. Best wishes.

Love Neal III's coverage, especially of the Twins.He does a great job on KFAN with Dan Barreiro.

Reusse needs to appoint him the new leader of the Turkey of the Year Award.

But who will ask the hard-hitting questions when the team goes on a midseason skid?

 

Never mind, beat writers (at least here) don't do that anymore.

 

Good for LEN3, though. He's a good writer and very knowledgeable. Just wish the beat writers in this town weren't serving as extended PR people for the teams.

I wonder if his style will change. I've always liked Neal, but he's never been terribly critical of the team. Columnists tend to take off the mitts when the team is struggling.

 

Also, they tend to take off the mitts when the team isn't struggling.

Souhan's, one could hope. Reusse is semi-retired already, though.

I am a devout Reusse hater. Have been since his days with the PioneerPress.I hope this means we will no longer see his Bi-line.

 

Congratulations LaVelle. This is a well earned promotion.:)
