Roch Kubatko has confirmed on his blog that he has accepted the Baltimore Sun's buyout package and his last day is this Friday, August 1. He says that he's still "weighing his options", and has not decided what to do yet. But never fear, he will be taking his blog with him. Say what you like about Roch, but he brings readers to that site and they're taking some self-inflicted damage by letting him walk. I still read him every day; the jokes are groaners, but he's got a lot more access to the team than almost anyone. The occasional quote or bit of breaking news makes it worth reading to me.
