i think i can, i think i can...

Who says investigative reporting is dead? Or is solely the province of dinosaurs? Go here to read what 25-year-old Michael Schmidt -- he's been a reporter for two years for the New York Times, where he paid his dues as a news clerk and an intern:

In June, he broke the story that slugger Sammy Sosa was on the infamous list of 100 baseball players to test positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.

Today, he added two more names -- Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz -- to the list in a bombshell story that already has Boston Red Sox beat writers talking.

Moral of the story, at least for Schmidt: you can. bk
