Steroids were the big story when Fainaru-Wada and Quinn were hired, and I had wondered whether they would be limited to that beat or if, alternatively, they would be general scandal reporters. Seems like the latter. I guess that's cool, but I wonder how decisions like that are made. Their cachet, as it is, comes by virtue of their being in and around the Bay Area when BALCO hit big. Do they now have a nose for scandal, or does someone just feed them the skimming stuff because they are now considered the go-to reporters for baseball's underworld?
I don't really care either way. I read a lot of hard boiled detective fiction and I have a soft spot for people who traffic in the seamy underbelly, so as far as I'm concerned, go Mark and T.J.
