LADY AT THE BAT: Today's (Aug 5th) Daily News Back Page

Today's (Aug 5th) Daily News Back Page

I was so busy today that I didn't see the back page of today's New York Daily News until about an hour ago.

Wow. That's blunt, to say the least.

To be honest, I have no problem with the page itself. (The milestone is tainted.) I just think the timing of it is bad. A back page on the day after Alex Rodriguez hits home run number 600 should be more celebratory. The News could have run a more positive back page today, then come back tomorrow with this one, or something similar to it. No one would be the worse for wear. Instead, they came off looking very juvenile today.
