Tribune writer Mark Gonzales put on display another lack of research in his article about today's game. He asserts the Sox are 7-1 in 1-Run games this season. They are, of course, 9-1. I am not one who generally is vocal about the piss poor media, but it just annoys me that these guys cannot even get their facts right.

Hmmmmm.

If only the World's Greatest Newspaper had some sort of "Information Superhighway Provider" (ISP) to check, rec-check, and then check again facts like this.

:gulp:

On Sunday's front page of sports, they had an "up next" box that indicated the Sox would be playing in Oakland on SUNDAY at 9 p.m. Um, no. The Sox were still in KC yesterday, and it was a day game. Another Oops for the Cubune.

I sent Mark an e-mail about it but there was no correction as of this morning.

"It's getting harder and harder to bury this 'Sox winning' story. What can we hope to do after Miami wipes out the Bulls?!?"

:ohno
"Cover Bears camp, no doubt."

I started it and posted it here b/c it had to do with the media. I figured it'd go ignored or evolve into something deserving of this place.
