Tired of This Kind of Reporting from the Media

The Pirates win their opener on the road and espn starts their recap (http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=310401116) with:

Play the Chicago Cubs enough times and maybe the Pittsburgh Pirates would escape the cellar of the NL Central. Or not end up with the worst record in the majors, as they did a year ago.

Cook in the Post-Gazette (http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/11091/1136161-63.stm) says:

Is anyone else concerned that the Pirates' big off-season acquisition after an 18th consecutive year of losing and a 57-105 record is a guy who won't pitch a ball, hit a ball or field a ball all season?

It can't just be me, right?



I know that having 18 losing seasons means that the writers get to kick you around, but come on! The Nationals get shutout in their home opener and no comments like this in the recap of their game.

I wish the writers would give it up and start writing about the promising stars and how they shined in the opener. Walker a Grand Slam, McCutchen a 2 run dinger, and Meek/Haranhan slamming the door. I would have started out the recap pointing out the young guys came to play.
