We don’t care if they never come back


Major League Baseball players will decide today if they are going on strike. Many fans are ready to have a strike of their own by boycotting the games in person, on television and radio, and by not buying merchandise when the game does resume.

As a newspaper, we make decisions every day about which stories we cover, which we pull from the wire services and the photographs that accompany them. Not every story gets in. This is because not every story is good, not every story pertains to our readers, and, simply not every story fits because of space. But as responsible journalists, we do aim to bring a cross section of news to our readers. This includes a variety of sports coverage.

We are considering a strike of our own if MLB goes on strike. Major League Baseball could disappear from our sports pages if there is strike, or we may just run the scores with no stories and no box scores.

We would like to know what you think of this. Assuming the players go on strike, do you want MLB coverage in the Tahoe Daily Tribune upon the players’ return? Let us know: Strike Coverage, 3079 Harrison Ave., South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150 or e-mail editor@tahoedailytribune.com
