Michael Schmidt, 25, Reporter
Any old gig at the Times ain't nothing to sneeze at, but Schmidt's got something better: he's on the steroids beat, the biggest story in sports, and he's not only been covering it for about two years, but breaking some of the biggest controversies of the decade: Sammy Sosa. Manny Ramirez. David Ortiz. He started out as a coffee fetcher. So did we, and we ain't breaking no national stories. Our only consolation is that his medium is dying.
