Like politics, like sports . . . the bias is the same

Ever notice that the Tribune's wild card standings are biased towards the Cubs. In Saturday's paper, the Cubs were the last team listed as being in contention in the wild card race. There was a spot to list another team, but the Trib opted to leave that slot blank - ostensibly saying that no other teams should be considered as part of the race.

Saturday's Cub loss coupled with the Reds' victory over Pittsburgh, however, put the Cubs and Cincinnati in a tie. Now both teams are listed as being "in the race". Funny how the Reds climbed back in it over night.

The Cardinal broadcasters were saying yesterday that it is very possible the Cubs could end up in 5th place. How does that compute?
