John's always been very nice in his comments and on twitter.  Plus, I have always thought he was better than others in terms of his writing about players.

I have each of his books from 2008-2016, plus I bought two copies of his novel. I gave one to my friend from Kansas.  I haven't read my copy yet.

He's had a lot of medical struggles over the years.  Once with vertigo, which delayed his book until after opening day.  Plus, he's had troubles with online publishers of his work, which is really odd considering how great he is.  Lesser writers/scouts are more bankable for some reason.

He's really struggled with the loss of MiLB this year and MLB's planned contraction of the minors.  I think the business has gotten to him on both ends - MLB's greed and publishers treating him badly.
