Subject: Sawchik Leaving Trib

It would appear that Travis Sawchik is leaving the Trib to join noted baseball analytics site Fangraphs.com as a writer. That's a great fit for Travis.

I'm sure the Trib didn't put up much of a fight...I'm wondering if they backfill a second beat writer or just rotate guys like Gorman in and out.

It really doesn't matter though...the PG has been trouncing the Trib when it comes to Pirates coverage for quite awhile.

Well they got a pretty strong #1 in Biertempfel and I would say adding Gorman to the mix would be make that a formidable team. Gorman has really been proving his mettle as a columnist. That being said, you aren't just going to replace Travis. Most local media outlets don't have a guy like him, someone who can really go deep on the analytics and actually parse it and make it understandable to the average fan (mostly).
