Yahoo baseball's lead story this morning. Same ole, same ole, makes me wonder if the players are REALLY tired of doing interviews on this subject.

However... I do feel this article is still positive about the Sox.

You know what the most annoying thing about this is? Look at the picture they show at sports.yahoo.com/mlb (if it's gone, it's a picture showing the visitor's dugout, with about 4 people in the stands behind it. The caption is "The Sox rank 20th in attendance.") As we all know, as bad as attendence is, it's never even close to THAT empty in the lower deck. When you click on the picture, the caption confirms that "Chicago White Sox fans file into U.S. Cellular Field before the start of the White Sox's game with the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, June 21, 2005 in Chicago". And yet, every idiot who reads the article and doesn't click on the picture is going to assume that the picture they show is during a game. :angry: :angry: :angry:

Someboday ought to merge these threads, as Yahoo and SI are both carrying the same AP article. Maybe even ban it altogether to the Outhouse might be appropriate.
