I once said a book by Bill Simmons of espn.com "could be considered the first post-modernist book of its kind." He's a guy who adapted to the Internet before most and has more or less thrived. Simmons is not for every taste, but generally is pretty entertaining. And not just because he's a member of Red Sox Nation.
I was alerted to a story Simmons recently wrote on Manny Ramirez. You can find it by going here. I'm not sure I buy the theory that Manny was a little more faultless than most believe, but Simmons makes it interesting.
Besides, he writes the best footnotes in the sportswriting business.
Thanks to the well-read Kevin Chase for the tip.
