National baseball writer, Tim Brown, leaves LA Times for Yahoo

"Departures from the increasingly Tribunized L.A. Times are beginning. Tim Brown, the national baseball writer since leaving the NBA beat, is jumping to Yahoo! Sports, where the former #2 at LAT sports, Dave Morgan, is now the #1. The staff email from Times sports editor Randy Harvey": Sent: Friday, November 24, 2006 12:17 PM "Subject: staff message from Randy Harvey

Staff,

We received word this morning that Tim Brown is leaving the paper for Yahoo Sports.

While this is good news for our friend Dave Morgan, it is very bad news for us. Tim is a born baseball writer, one of the very best in the business, but the fact is that there isn't a writing job in our section that Tim couldn't do with equal style.

He certainly proved that with his exceptional coverage of the Shaq and Kobe Lakers. That was a high point for our department.

We will miss him personally and professionally. We wish him well.

Randy" from LA Observed via Romenesko
