Today, of course, is the last day the DMN will be covering the Rangers.
Technically, of course, they'll still be running Rangers stories in their print editions...it will just be the Rangers stories written by the S-T beat writers.
And I assume that a DMN columnist will every once in a while break away from Valley Ranch to write about the local baseball team.
But really, this is, for all intents and purposes, the end of the DMN covering baseball.
This will mean fewer links in our morning Rangers news posts. Fewer sources of information about what is going on with the team.
I can't imagine LSB will be linking back to the DMN much anymore. I have to assume that the baseball blog there is going away -- if there are no baseball writers at the DMN, there's not much point in having a baseball blog on the website, since that would just serve to highlight the absence of coverage.
And it isn't clear at this point whether the DMN website will be running the S-T's baseball stories or not, although I'm not sure what the point of that would be.
Anyway, it is a sad day for those of us who Jean-Jacques Taylor doesn't think exist, those of us who obsess about the Rangers and want as much coverage and information about them as we can get.
