Three of our regular set will be leaving us for a couple of weeks for the vehemence (or in the case of one, simply the persistence) of their ad hominem attacks on a single journalist. Levitas, Snapper and Middle Class Taig. have all made good (and some excellent) contributions to the discussion here on Slugger, and I hope we’ll see them back in action again. They’ll certainly be welcomed with open arms – provided they are content to play the ball, and not attempt to take the player out of the game!
