Deadspin: Rubin Voted Best Mets Beat Writer, Martino Voted Worst

An article by posted on August 15, 2013 0 Comments

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.
