I couldn't help but notice that the Tribune wasn't at the all star game is San Diego and the P-G was. Does Biertempfel being off the beat have anything to do with this? Maybe the plane ticket was in his name? Or is the Tribune no longer "part of the team"? Inquiring minds!!

If you are paying attention, you will see see that Biertempfel is not off the pirates beat. The Trib still enjoys its exclusive partnership with the Pirates as well. In your haste to to garner some attention, you overlooked these two facts that are easily researched.

Yeah ya know, come to think of it, you're right. It's better to not cover something than to cover it. Where do I subscribe?!!

He's not off the beat. He's still covering the Pirates.
The plane ticket scenario is simply bizarre.
Maybe The Trib wisely decided that it wasn't a good use of resources and money to go to the All-Star Game, when the Pirates didn't have a dominating presence.
There was nothing there that The Trib could have provided that I didn't get anywhere else.
The P-G coverage didn't blow me away. They used Getty Images, didn't send a photographer.
And, ironically, Gene Collier wrote a column about how the All-Star game, essentially, sucks and needs a revamp.
So, no, I don't think The Trib missed much by not sending someone.

Sending someone to the ASG was a waste of money, especially with it being across the country. I don't see the point in wasting resources, especially if you're a newspaper.
