Neil deMause on John Brattain: "In many ways, he was the worthy successor to the late Doug Pappas, as both a writer and an analyst; now he's gone at 43, just one year older than Doug was when he left us five years ago."
- I noted this as I believe Doug Pappas was the only human being who could put a dent in the Bud Selig crime family and the moat around it called the BBWAA. No one else has the guts or the independence. I only knew a little about John Brattain but hearing him compared to Doug Pappas and knowing what died with him makes Mr. Brattain's loss more pointed.
