Ch-ch-changes Abound For Chronicle Writers

Don't know if any of you have noticed, but there are some new faces around the Chronicle lately. Daniel talked a little about the general consensus about Chronicle writers in the blogosphere, but I for one welcome our new print overlords...

They're not taking us over?

That was Bleacher Report and their slide shows on the sports site?

My bad, people.

At any rate, there have been some changes in the ranks and I didn't want to let them go unnoticed. Sam Khan, Jr. is leaving the preps beat to take over coverage of the University of Houston. Former Coogs beat man Steve Campbell slides over as the other Astros writer and Didier Morais was hired to fill Sam's vacant slot on the high school side.

Morais recently graduated from Syracuse and has worked for MLB.com and The Miami Herald. So, I kind of hate him (as I sit through another district high school swim meet with nothing more than this post to show for it). Campbell had one of my favorite all-purpose blogs on Chron.com before he moved onto the UH beat. Really looking forward to seeing what he can do with Zachary Levine as the Astros writers.

The weird thing is how much transition there's been in the paper's coverage of the Astros in the past few years. Campbell will mark the fifth writer to cover the team since the end of the 2007 season. I like Levine quite a bit, if only because his stat-geeky background matches up perfectly with my own. Campbell, as I said before, did some good work before and I'm intrigued to see where he can go with things. Covering pro baseball is a grueling and thankless task, so I can only wish him luck this season.
