Spike Vrusho is a zine editor who lives in Rhinebeck, New York where he drives a taxi and works as a freelance writer, mostly for the culture website www.splicetoday.com based in Baltimore.
He has resisted transforming his dormant paper fanzine Murtaugh into another website or blog and continues to root for the Pirates despite the inexplicable preponderance of nerdy SABR-types who have somehow bullied their way into online baseball discourse. Blind allegiance to the farcical "Moneyball" and the corporate virus called fantasy baseball have ruined half of the game while the other 49% of the game festers with a gang greenous appendage last seen protruding from the side of Scott Boras' tassled loafers. "Kill them all, let Mel Ott sort them out" sez this particular bumpersticker affixed to a 1982 Audi Fox parked illegally in the ALCOA lot outside Three Rivers Stadium.
