Kirby, we’ll miss ya

If you follow the Mariners in our paper or online, then you’ve seen Kirby Arnold’s byline a lot. The Sun has had a contract with the Everett Herald for several years. Other than Associated Press reports, most of our coverage of Seattle sports — Mariners, Seahawks, Huskies, etc. — comes from The Herald.

Kirby’s covered the M’s the last 13 years, but he announced Tuesday that he’s retiring. We’ll miss his game stories, notebooks and columns. Kirby was the sports editor in Everett for a long time so we’ve communicated a bunch over the years and when I get over to an occasional M’s game, he was always helpful and always reached out to ask how I was doing and how things were going at The Sun. He was a real pro, and one of the nicest guys I’ve come across in our business.

Here’s his final blog.
