Awful News: Phil Miller Laid Off By Pioneer Press
of MinnPost reports
that Twins beat reporter Phil Miller
has been laid off by the St. Paul Pioneer Press
. In addition to being one hell of a nice guy Miller did a fantastic job covering the team, so this is terrible news for Twins fans. Kelsie Smith
moves up to become the primary beat writer and will do a nice job, but the newspaper's Twins coverage can't help but suffer without Miller. This really stinks, on a personal level and as a fan who likes as much good content about the team as possible. Ugh.
