    Two major baseball beats open. I wonder which one is a better gig? This one or the Philadelphia Inquirer (Phillies)?

    Philadelphia is the cheaper city to live in, which is an important consideration since both jobs will pay a barely livable salary.

    Newsday is in a far more stable financial position than the Inquirer. And the salary should be quite satisfactory.
