Manny's Grab, Clutch Hits Help Dodgers Tie NLCS: "Matt Kemp hit a go ahead homer, Casey Blake's first NLCS RBI stood as the decisive run and Manny Ramirez made a game-saving catch to give L.A. a series-tying 4-3 win over Philly." Or at least that's what the MLB.Com web site reported last night. The Phillies came back in the ninth inning to take a 3-1 series lead.

Welcome to 2009, where it's more important to be first to report the news, than to report the news correctly.

Say, has anyone seen a hot air balloon with a little boy in it recently ?

for what it's worth, that graphic was almost certainly put together by a part-timer, working at nearly midnight, who was trying to be prepared and accidentally posted it live.

it has nothing to do with reporting correctly or mlb conspiracies and a lot to do with how web content is actually produced (i.e., halfassedly).
