Is The Toronto Star’s headline writer “playing out the string”?

If you read the Sports Section at The Toronto Star with any regularity, you can be forgiven for doing a double take. Consider these two headlines from Saturday and Monday (today):

Feschuk: Nuggets shine in clutch while Bosh wilts
Dave Feschuk
March 27, 2010

Hedo Turkoglu sits as Raptors wilt
Doug Smith
March 29, 2010

The Star’s running an online poll right now: “Do you think the recent trend shows that Raptors’ Chris Bosh is merely playing out the string?” Good question.

One could pose the same one to The Star’s Sports Section headline writer. Basketball’s regular season is but 82 games. How do they plan to keep it fresh for a 162 game Blue Jay season?

Poking fun aside, the coverage of the two journalists in question is what counts, and both have done a stellar job for the entire Raptors season.
