Awful News: Phil Miller Laid Off By Pioneer Press

David Brauer 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.

Once you're done here, check out my "Circling The Bases" blog over at NBCSports.com.
