There was recently a contentious battle between David Mauro and Dave Cameron for the $10,000 blogging scholarship.  I live in Seattle.  I'm a Mariners fan.  I'm a nut about baseball analysis.  I've been reading Dave's work at USS Mariner, Fangraphs, Baseball Analysts, and Baseball Prospectus for quite some time.  He's increased my knowledge of the game by leaps and bounds over the years, and I started out as a pretty knowledgeable fan.  I just want to take a few moments to talk about Dave, and why he really got an unfair rap in all of this.
