We can only imagine why the management of the Denver Post decided to ask Mike Klis to stop writing about baseball.
Was it because they were tired of hearing so many complaints about the extreme low literary quality and endless repetition of the same hackneyed and preposterous ideas, coupled with the boring, inaccurate and inarticulate coverage of baseball events?
Was it because of pressure from the Rockies and Major League Baseball, who should have been getting tired of his constant irrational attacks on the game and how it is played in his own hometown?
More likely, the management at the Post is as clueless as Klis and they moved him over to Broncos coverage because there was an opening. Judging by the spelling and grammatical errors in the Post, nobody is reading anything before printing it, so they probably have no idea what a bad writer Klis is. Nor do they care.
So, don't be surprised if you start reading that the Broncos are losing because:
Maybe Klis will come up with some new reasons for why the Broncos can't win, but don't bet on it - in his career of covering the Rockies he sang the same tune with hardly ever a variance.
We expect the Post to get another writer to cover baseball in Klis' place, and we welcome him or her. It will be easy for them in that they won't have the pressure of having to live up to reputation of following a competent reporter.
