    So, where are people putting the Rodriguez story?

    Does it merit bumping local off the front page?

    It is running page 4 of my paper.

    I would guess that it is going to be the lede story for all of the NYC and North Jersey (Bergen Record, Star-Ledger) papers. And I'm not sure that anything would cause it to move off the back pages or the sports cover.

    It's early February; there will be plenty of sports fronts across the country with A-Rod on them.

    I am looking forward to the headline the NY Post comes up with.

  6. It was already at the top of the NYT website by 2 this afternoon.
    I don't even want to think about tomorrow's NYC tabs.

    I'm sure it's the news of the day in New York and most major markets that think of themselves as a national presence.

    In the smaller markets, hundreds or thousands of miles away, probably not so much. Just because it's "a-fraud" doesn't mean it merits front-page play.

    Honestly, I can't think of a bigger prima donna who has milked more money out of organizations in any professional sports league over the past decade.

    Page 1 here, nowhere near NYC (see Mark2010's response). Not sure it bumps local, though. Depends on your circumstances.
    Hey, Boom. There's a typo in that hed. Oh, wait. I like it.
  12. It's going to be on our front. Unless you'd be bumping something big and important locally, I'd say it should be out front. Anyone that cares a tiny bit about baseball will be talking about this.
