The World Is Less Funny

Terrible news today – John Brattain has passed away at the age of 44. He was a great writer, and a remarkable asset to the community of baseball nerds that we’re all a part of. I never had any interaction with him, but enjoyed his work at a distance. We’ve lost a good one. My condolences to his family.

We hoped you liked reading The World Is Less Funny by Dave Cameron!

Wow – are you serious? That completely ruined my day. That is awful. I never comment on anything really, but John, we will miss you and your work. Heartfelt condolences to friends and family.
