It started so innocently

Badger Blogger reported

While BadgerBlogger can not independently confirm this, sources close to the Milwaukee Brewers organization tell BadgerBlogger late this evening, in the midst of another horrid road trip, and on the heels of a sweep by the Boston Red Sox, that Brewers manager Ned Yost will be relieved of his duties during the team’s off day Monday, and replaced on an “interim” basis by team bench coach Ted Simmons.

But swelled all out of proportion after Tom Haudricourt, a serious journalist, who probably, like Cuprisin and Kane, only blogs because his masters at the Journal Sentinel (Journal Communications?) make him, threw “the info out there for your consumption” along with disparaging remarks about bloggers on the Brewers blog that he and Anthony Witrado post to on JSOnline. He was obviously told about the post and not wanting to be scooped by these pesky bloggers, made his own post with his own speculations

Then the fit hit the shan, if you know what I mean. and the dust up gets commented on by Michael “I’m no baseball expert” Mathias and James Wigderson, who even drags Mickey Kaus into it.

Posts multiply upon post (and I admit I’m adding to it) charges and counter charges, source added to source, interviews on radio shows (h/t to Wiggy), speculation, innuendo, with all kinds of supposedly famous people commenting.

OK, I exaggerate. Somewhat.

I’ve been known to do so on occasion.

But it’s great drama.
