The Post and the Daily News come out today with pullout season preview sections. We rate them, for your pleasure and edification….
News: Colorado Rockies, over .500
Post: Grady Sizemore, AL MVP (Yeah, we’re stupified)
Edge: Post. Because we love crazy.
Scouting reports, division breakdowns, news coverage
News: Heavily reported, lots of info, including “scout’s” take.
Edge: News. Big time.
Both predict 1st place finish for Yanks, 2nd place finish for Mets. But news calls Yanks “armed and old,” and is in general more realistic
Edge: News. Because we also like a little bit of reality.
Post: Mariano Rivera Poster—Enter Sandman!
An easy call this year; The Daily News is our hands down tabloid champ. But we’re still not sure it was worth the .50 cents.
