Will Leitch Today, Deadspin’s Will Leitch announced that he is leaving Gawker’s sports site for the greener pastures of New York Magazine (Leitch’s mom promptly announced she is converting her basement to a sewing room). And so we take this opportunity to look back, to remember a simpler time, before Buzz Bissinger called us names, before $4 gas, before Big Papi’s wrist shattered into a million pieces. This interview is from January. It’s dark, and amateur, and vintage Leitch. Enjoy.

    You know I didn\’t really expect to have a shot at Scherzer with my #9 waiver priority, but until now I still had a tiny bit of hope. Damn.
