In reading the sports section, it is difficult to know that Fresno is fortunate to have a Triple-A baseball team. In Sunday’s paper, an article about the team was relegated to page 9, whereas articles about Dodgers, Giants, A’s and Padres were on page 2, with a bold headline about Buster Posey and the Giants.
Yes, the Giants pulled the plug and moved its Triple-A to Sacramento and some people are probably still crying over this. However, we were fortunate to have the Houston Astros franchise come to our town. The players are one step away from the Big Show, and the quality of play is very good. We have a first-class stadium, and there is always a family atmosphere.
I think that the least The Bee could do is give the team much better coverage than it is getting. If in two years when the contract with Houston expires, and the team goes elsewhere, some of the blame might be because of poor media coverage
