We get 2 papers delivered here (Post & Va Pilot).  But there aren't too many other houses getting a paper delivered

Well, as they say, we're of an age. One other paper gets delivered on my street, and the guy's in his mid-80s.

It's not about the technology.    It's about flippin' the paper.    It's a recall of more primitive times.

My guess is that it has more to do with pressure to spit out a lot of stories combined with cutbacks in editorial staff

Nah, mitlen's on target. If you look at the bottom of any story from any major news source these days you'll see a bunch of click bait third party stories powered by Taboola or similar companies. The goal is to get clickbait headlines so people open the page, skim the story, then click on one of the funny, sexy, or scandalous links at the bottom to some slide show ad view special.

I have a friend who works as an environmental law analyst for a firm that Bloomberg picked up. He was recently removed from the writing team because his stuff was too dry and was written for people behind the paywall. Didn't drive revenue enough.

Disappointing that this is what it has come to for a major American daily.

Sadly, it's ALL American dailies. And also web sites for all major news channels. Welcome to the new world where clicks are more important than content. When the metric of success was # of subscribers, they had to have substance. Now it's the face book like and share era. It's not about people giving you money - it's about being popular and getting the ad companies to give you money.

 Rizzo is out early watching Lobaton throw to bases, which is a little odd.

Throwing from where? Was he in the outfield preparing for an emergency with Harper out for the next 3 games? Why not provide more precise information. :smh:

I will assume that if he was throwing from the outfield she would have mentioned that.

I wonder if this is just a way to find an "injury" that would require a quick stint on the DL so they can bring up someone with a bit more versatility (ability to play OF) just in case. :shrug:
