Seven of nine Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel writers picked the Brewers to win the NL Central; the other two went with the Cubs. One picked the Brewers to win the NL pennant; none chose the Cubs.
Six of seven Chicago Tribune writers picked the Cubs to win the NL Central; only Mike Downey picked the Brewers. Phil Rogers and Rick Morrissey think the Cubs will take the NL pennant; no Trib writers went with the Brewers.
This would be an apt demonstration of provincialism and partiality in the daily sporting press, if it weren't for the fact that those seven Milwaukee writers are imbeciles, and those six Chicago writers are dead on.
