Obviously I’m biased here … but why is it that the NYT can be the most authoritative, objective paper on any other issue, but when it comes to the Yankees they gush like a fan blog? Even putting aside the almost total lack of Mets coverage (OK, there wasn’t much to cover this year, but this is a longstanding issue), the Times’ writers are always either praising or defending the Yankees. From extolling Jeter’s fielding skills (right), to determining whether A-Rod is clutch, to today’s inanity headlined “Don’t worry! I’m pretty sure they’re not going to blow a 3-1 lead!” they just can’t stop wetting themselves over the Yankees’ perpetual greatness. Could I maybe just get the box score?
