The Daily's Hot Reads For Wednesday: New Life For The Old Guard

The WALL STREET JOURNAL's Matthew Futterman writes of the MLB postseason: "One thing is clear: If baseball in the last few years has been the domain of the new-money, financial-world quants in places like Tampa, Boston and Milwaukee, these playoffs are a triumph for baseball's old boys club" (WALL STREET JOURNAL).

espnW's Kate Fagan writes, "The sports world itself … is beginning to recognize the damage caused by its own repressive climate, and a growing number of straight athletes now see gay rights as an equal-rights issue. … We're still missing the most important piece: a gay male athlete in a major team sport coming out" (espnW).

The SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE's Matt Calkins writes the "greatest Lakers executive ever" is "not Jerry West." Calkins: "What Mitch Kupchak has done during his Tinseltown tenure surpasses that of his Hall of Fame predecessor. If West was Mark Spitz, Kupchak has somehow Michael Phelps'd him" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE).
