Congratulations Dylan Hernandez, Voted Best Dodgers Beat Writer

At least, that's what Deadspin concluded, following an open comment thread asking readers to vote for their best and worst by team:

Los Angeles Dodgers

Best: Los Angeles Times's Dylan Hernandez "wins by a landslide. Smart, funny and embraces stats."

Worst: ESPN's Mark Saxon "whose writing truly captures the daily schlep of being a beatwriter. The guy doesn't seem to enjoy his job and enjoys covering Dodgers even less."

Yikes, not so good for Saxon. But congrats, Dylan!
