This has been a big week for Joe Posnanski on the blogs.
Who’s Joe Posnanski, you ask? He’s a sports columnist for the Kansas City Star, a paper with a history of developing big time writing talents.
I’d never heard of Posnanski before this week. I probably should have heard of him, since he was recently voted the best sports columnist in America. But I hadn’t.
Now it seems like his name is everywhere (online).
First, I read where Yahoo’s Jeff Passan called him “among the best writers in the business” in an interview published on The Big Lead.
