I never understood why some people were bothered that Hammond wasn't a fan of the team. That's a plus in my book. A reporter who is a fan will find it hard not to have an agenda (though being a part of the organization itself may dampen it) because he / she will start thinking proprietorially.

As far as being a "shill" of the team, I didn't see it. He wasn't the first to break trade news, or speculate on trade rumors, but I was fine with that. He didn't answer a lot of questions that he said he wouldn't answer, i.e. personal stuff about the players. A lot of the questions people asked were dumb, frankly, and I wouldn't have answered them either, if I were him.
