Chelsea Janes is leaving politics and will now the the national baseball writer for the Post.

Janes says!!!  Her political writing was good to catch and well done.  It's great to have her back doing baseball. I assume that as "national writer," she'll be less concentrated on the Nats like Dougherty and maybe somewhere between Sheinin and Svrluga / Boz.  Great that the Post can add sports staff on baseball.  Hoping this doesn't spell a retirement for Sheinin.

When Boswell was the start baseball writer, wasn't there always another writer for the Nats as well ?

Svrluga was the first beat writer, then Chico Harlan, then I think Adam Kilgore then Janes. Sheinen has been the national baseball writer, and Boz is more a general dc sports columnist.

I enjoyed his book, it was basically cliff-notes for the 2019 season but it had some good behind-the-scenes stories.

VARK - you are the only blowhard on this - Boswell was a wonderful writer, as other writers like 2IPAs commented

I see you've moved on from 2020

Big Z's second goal of the season pushed me over the edge...  ;)

Or they're cutting back baseball reporting, and she'll be the only one, hence the "national" title.
