Ari Shapiro speaks with Sportsnet’s Baseball Editor, Ben Nicholson-Smith (05/24) who covers the Toronto Blue Jays from coast-to-coast. Topics covered: his thoughts on how fans should feel about an underwhelming May, how much baseball luck plays a part in the early season, what John Gibbons can do to motivate his players, if the Blue Jays are good enough to challenge the Angels, and what he would do with Vlad Guerrero Jr. when it comes to the 2018 Blue Jays.
About The Author
Ari Shapiro is a writer, podcaster, and publisher with over two decades of experience working for monolithic corporations before one day realizing that the value of pure human ingenuity and creative literary expression is worth far more than being a capitalist ronin prick who drives a nice BMW. He’s a dashing technologist by day and a cunning journalist by night running one of the last independent and underground media hubs featuring articles from a cadre of ruthlessly talented contributors. He also discovered J. R. R. Tolkien at ten years of age, King Crimson by twelve, and ran the city’s most popular bulletin board system at fifteen. Now mired in adulthood, he yearns to avoid mediocrity by inspiring others to use both hemispheres of the mind. View all my posts
