best sports section: SF Chronicle?

    If you're a baseball fan it's hard to like the Chronicle after what the paper's done to magnify the steroid scandal in the last two years. Still, you have to give the paper a ton of respect.

    Paper-wise, SF isn't even the best in the area. San Jose used to win that hands down, but with Dean's hacking and slashing it isn't what it was.

    Even before the K-R and Singleton axes fell, the Merc was a lot of words, not stitched together very well. Beyond that, for 20-30 years, everything grew in Santa Clara County but the Merc's circulation. Most over-rated.

    We can agree, therefore, that inside scoop just flat out sucks ass.

    Jay, I can explain that.

    You don't have to be a fan of cheating to want the sports section to be about sports.

    Well, considering the two reporters shouldn't have to give up their sources, absolutely not. And considering cheating exists in other sports... to hear the SF Chron talk about it in some of those articles, baseball's the lone sport that does it (although the articles have mentioned track). And I gotta feel for Henry Schulman, what he's been through as the news side has written these stories.

    I didn't say the reporting wasn't excellent. It is. It's just my cup of tea in SF has been the Merc, and somehow my words got lost in translation. That's all. :)
