Getting Called Up From the Big Leagues

M.G. Siegler, on Bill Simmons putting his new publication, The Ringer, on Medium:

In a way, it almost feels like the thing to do now is the opposite of what is typical in professional sports.

In our new era of publishing, writers may start at the big leagues, building up their skills and brands, before venturing out on their own (or with a group of peers).
