    Who

    "Congratulations to Matt Moore of Hardwood Paroxysm who just became the latest TrueHoop Network blogger to get a full-time NBA media job."

    Shouldn't there be a comma before "who"?

    Thanks.

    No. It's not necessary.

    Re: Who

    But isn't "who just became the latest TrueHoop Network blogger to get a full-time NBA media job." an additional piece of information and thus a nonrestrictive clause?

    Jasmin, you are correct about the comma, and for exactly the right reasons. The writer here goofed.
