Robots to replace Sportswriters

Imagine that you could push a button, and magically create a story about a baseball game. That’s what the Stats Monkey system does. Given information commonly available online about many games — the box score and the play-by-play — the system automatically generates the text of a story about that game that captures the overall dynamic of the game and highlights the key plays and key players. The story includes an appropriate headline and a photo of the most important player in the game.

I'm pretty sure I'd enjoy that over sportswriters. Can they replace the BBWA too for HOF voting?

I'm going to presume that the next, logical application for this software will be to replace Tim McCarver.
