Deadspin: Rubin Voted Best Mets Beat Writer, Martino Voted Worst
Deadspin decided to an unscientific polling this season of who were the best and worst beat writers for every major league team. Today, they have released their results:
For the Mets they selected:
ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin is by far, the best Mets beat reporter. Jorge Castillo is a distant second.
The Daily News’ Andy Martino is the worst and it’s by a country mile. He openly roots against the team, doesn’t do his research, brings no new relevant info to the table, and openly trolls the fans.
I would have to agree with that assessment…
I would also mention that along with Rubin and Castillo I enjoy following and reading Marc Carig, Mike Kerwick, Kevin Kernan, Rich Couthino and Anthony DiComo very much. They are all passionate, objective and professional reporters, and they each do a good job of interacting with their readers.
