Exodus of sports scribes continues

Gordon Edes, the former L.A. Times Dodgers and Kings writer, is reported to be next on the list to be hired by Yahoo Sports in Santa Monica. Edes, currently at the Boston Globe, would become a national baseball writer. A website called The Big Lead lists the newspaper sports reporters who have left in the past year or so for magazines, Yahoo or ESPN. It's a deep roster, and includes LAT departures Tim Brown and J.A. Adande.
