Some words from contributors of Raines30.com
John Brattain seemed to spread warmth and cheer into every nook and cranny of the web, which made it much easier to have a writing addiction... Speaking personally, John sought me out for the raines30.com page a while ago. It was an act of courtesy and consideration which will never be forgotten.
Just minutes after [my first Baseball Prospectus] article was posted, I got the very first feedback email of my sportswriting career.
The Subject was: "DUDE!!!!!!!"
Great column on BP! Kudos and congrats guy! Never
too many Expos fans writing on the game eh!
More to follow I hope.
Never too many, John. I only wish we didn’t just lose one of the best.
