From Surgery To Amputation

Jon showed some concern that the Times Sports section was about to undergo surgery, losing all manner of small features and undergoing a general reduction in size to fourteen pages a week. That's nothing if you're an A's fan, however, as the San Jose Mercury-News is planning on losing their A's-covering reporters completely, instead leaving the section to be written by the Contra Costa Times. "This move will save us nearly $50,000 in travel costs alone. ... No one will be laid off as a result of this move." But you can be sure certain people will be thinking about it.

The SJ Mercury and CC Times are both Gannett papers, joined at the hip, differentiated only by title and area of coverage. I've always wondered why they had two reporters covering the same thing. I guess they finally wondered the same thing.
