"Somber Streak" cries Cubune!

filed by George Bova

May 9. 2005

Not that this comes as a surprise, but the Chicago Tribune's sports editors decided that Sunday's Sox victory in Toronto, the team's eighth straight including a 3-game sweep of the Blue Jays and the greatest start to the season in franchise history, and the greatest in the history of Major League Baseball for the unprecedented number of consecutive leads the 2005 Sox have achieved, completed by a first-place team with the best record in all of baseball -- that victory -- was "somber."

Gregg Zaun plays for the Toronto Blue Jays.  He was hurt in the ninth inning and was carried from the field before the Sox got the last out and finished off the sweep. 

Note Gregg Zaun does not play for the Chicago White Sox, or any other Chicago sports team, the storylines usually reserved for Chicago ballplayers and Chicago sports teams.  A victory such as this might certainly contain details about the injury to a ballplayer on a non-Chicago team, but in the headline?  The headline of a story with so many other angles, all of them unprecedented, in fact far more unprecedented than the angle the Cubune's editors chose to run with -- namely the injury to a ballplayer from the other team.

The editors at the Cubune have no shame and even less credibility on this matter. 

Another day, another excuse.  Only one thing is certain:  they'll never come clean.
