Herald’s Boston/LA Byline Bakeoff a Big Baseball Bust

October 25, 2018

Taking a cue from the Boston Globe’s Home/Away feature that matches up Globe columnist Christopher Gasper with a columnist from the hometown paper of that week’s Patriots opponent, the Boston Herald ran this on page 2 of Tuesday’s edition.

Good idea, if derivative. Tuesday’s columns were a compare ‘n’ contrast of the respective ballyards of the World’s Serious rivals, with Fenway holding the obvious edge.

But then yesterday Alexander wrote about the Bruins-Kings NHL rivalry, and Pelletier nattered on about Bobby Orr vs. Wayne Gretzky, which seemed more than odd to the headscratching staff.

And today?

 

 

 

Seriously? That’s just idiotic.

Of course, the columnists can’t write about what they should be – namely, last night’s baseball game – because the flimsy local tabloid is printed in East Jesus, Rhode Island around dinnertime the night before.

We’ll say it again.
