Good luck to you, Mr. Anderson

My business will lose a giant on Monday when Dave Anderson of the New York Times retires.

One of the best parts about working in the sports media in New York is being on the same playing field with the greats. Dave Anderson is sort of our Tom Glavine. He has been around forever, he’s a very nice man and he does his job exceedingly well time after time after time.

He may be the only sportswriter in New York I’ve never heard anybody say something bad about.

Dave is proof that you don’t have to have an agenda, a big ego, a churlish personality or friends in high places to be a good columnist. You can be observant, professional and one heck of a writer. The best way is still his way.

The Times said Dave will write 18 columns a year in his retirement. I hope he stops by the Stadium a time or two. All of us in the press box can stand to be reminded of how respected our profession can be.
