It’s hard to imagine Deadspin with more of an edge, but if anyone can bring it, it’s Slate’s Tom Scocca. A.J. Daulerio, Deadspin’s Editor-in-Chief, announced yesterday evening that Scocca will be joining the sports site as Managing Editor.

Scocca then followed that announcement up with a final post to his Slate blog:

When I got up this morning, or even when I had lunch, I didn’t really know I’d be shutting the blog down today, on the 698th post (Go for 700, already, cries the part of the brain conditioned to tend the Tamagotchi). That’s how the instant horizon works. Get mad about Bill Simmons’ taste in shoes and—oh, time to make an announcement: I’m going to be managing editor of Deadspin.
