Bob Dutton, who found new ways to write about the Royals as they found new ways to lose, is leaving the Kansas City Star, he announced on Twitter this morning.

“A heads up: this twitter handle and its focus will change in a few weeks. Have accepted a job in Tacoma to cover the Mariners,” he wrote.

Dutton has covered the Royals since 2000. He’ll be the new Mariners reporter for the Tacoma News Tribune, which, like The Star, is owned by McClatchy.

Greg Hall has a take on this, so read it for a more nuanced report.
