Guess which team got the coveted Back Page in the Chicago Cub-Times?

A: 1st Place Team with best record in baseball
B: 3rd Place Team 3 games under .500

If you said B, you were correct!!!

It's actually a pretty simple concept to figure out if you know anything about newspapers.

We are lucky if we get an updated story when the Sox are on the left coast, let alone the front page picture.

Seriously.:threadblows:


Maybe we just have a thread for Hangar's media rants. It would be updated everyday, so we know it would always be right on the front page of WTS.

Actually, if both the Cubs and Sox lose, I don't mind the Cubs getting more coverage.

Exactly. Cub losses are much more entertaining.

Hangar:

What time did the Sox game end last night?

Most newspapers have deadlines between 11PM and 11:30 PM.

If you are going to bitch about something at least understand the circumstances surrounding it.

LipI was surprised they even had the result of the Sox game in the newspaper. Usually if the game is a west coast game it is not in the paper.

I normally never even see the Chicago papers anymore, but I did happen to see the Sun-Times on Tuesday, the day after the Sox won in 11 innings with the game finishing around midnight. The Sun-Times not only had the score, but they gave the White Sox the entire back page with a huge photo.

But I guess if you're constantly looking for things to bitch about, you'll find 'em.

That's actually a great point that's easy to forget.

Hangar, didn't we talk about this last night, too? The papers, especially the Times, have been very fair to the Sox since they game out of the gate on fire. Are you going to get upset *every single time* the Sox don't get the huge back page photo? That is kind of hypoctitical when you look back at your argument over the past few years that coverage should be equal.

When I lived in NY and the Yankees were busy obliterating everyone while the Mets stunk it up, the Mets got the photo once in a while, too.
