A foul call on coverage

CambriaJuly 14, 2013 

Let me get this straight. Please don’t tell me that the fair-minded Tribune is a Giants fan. On your June 30 sports page, the headlines were “Giants waste a gem from Cain.” OK, I get it. World champs are going downhill. Great team and franchise having a hard time; welcome to my entire season thus far.

However, in the interest of fairness and my belief that everyone gets a fair turn, I turn the page to look for my beloved Dodgers. What do I find: “A’s lose Parker, then lose to Cardinals” and “Angels top Astros, win fifth straight.” Finally, in the scoreboard, I find the Dodgers.

I realize that everyone can’t get top billing, or even secondor third-page billing, but let’s look at this with my Dodgers cap off and with complete objectivity. These were all AP stories; that means you pick them.

Second, the Dodgers, having experienced a miserable season thus far due to injuries, have the hottest player in the Major Leagues right now, Hanley Ramirez; have the most exciting player in baseball period, Yasiel Puig; and a had walk-off hit June 29 by A.J. Ellis. And all I get is box scores? Really?

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
