We reported a week and a half ago about ESPN baseball columnist Keith Law interviewing with the Houston Astros, possibly for the position of scouting director. Then, we heard nothing about it for a while. Yesterday, Law tweeted that he'd be staying with ESPN and not taking a job with the Astros.
The internet rejoiced at the news, mostly because it means that we won't get deprived of Law's blunt, sometimes harsh, but always generally truthful analysis of MLB transactions. Plus, we're getting close to the time of year where many fans renew their Insider subscriptions: top 100 prospect time! Law's lists are usually among the best and most informative amongst baseball analysts.
It's a shame that a MLB team won't be able to have his unique blend of sabermetric and scouting knowledge in their front office, but its fantastic news for fans of his work, because we'll still get access to it on a regular basis. Here's hoping ESPN gives him a more elevated role in 2012 and bring a more advanced statistical analysis to their multi-platform television coverage too.

If Shannon Sharpe does not replace Craig James on the Mount Rushmore of Awful, there is nothing right in this world.
I would say I could go back to watching some programs on ESPN, now, but that will have to wait until Leach takes a really big chunk out of their corporate hiney with his lawsuit. They were as guilty of conspiring as James. Hopefully, the $2M per year that Mike is paid by WSU will turn out to be chump change compared to what he jerks out of James, ESPN, and their PR cohorts.
Since he's a lying hypocrite who accepted money under the table and cost Mike Leach his job, he should be right at home in D.D.
Since he's a lying hypocrite who took money under the table and then cost Leach his job, he should fit right in in Washington.
Is Craig James in outerspace? What a conceited dufus this guy is. I don't think he realizes how unpopular he has become over the lies he spread on Mike Leach. I wouldn't vote for him for dog catcher and if ESPN allows him back, it just proves to me they are as dumb as he is.
Is there going to be another contest to see who goes on the Mount Rushmore of Awful Announcing to replace James?
Craig James has "name recognition " in this case thats NOT good . Waiting to see if he goes to Lubbock to campaign . Go Craig Go !
@awfulannouncing Thank the Lord
This will awaken some ghosts of SMU past. RT @awfulannouncing Craig James Officially Leaves ESPN For US Senate Campaign http:\/\/t.co\/iJRSK8h0
@awfulannouncing Best late birthday\/early Christmas gift ever
@awfulannouncing Does this mean there'll be a contest to replace him on Mount Rushmore? If it's not Chris Berman, there's no justice, I say.
@awfulannouncing Oh Lord. Just we need, another self-absorbed bag of hot air in Congress.
@awfulannouncing This will be an improvement to sports on TV, but may come at the cost of a catastrophic setback to our government.
@awfulannouncing so one positive thing happened
@awfulannouncing And we all rejoiced. He's certainly sleazy enough.
@awfulannouncing Which means a summer Craig James Memorial Tournament is coming! #herewegoagain
