Sports: Last night, I accidentally opened that fantasy baseball article. It’s not even about the local teams. I just read everything I needed to know about the Reds. The Reds! CBS Sports has started the camp tours and the fantasy outlooks and I can feel my summer slipping away. The infection is spreading... Finally: Did you see Feder had four posts yesterday? Four stories! Feder is bringing media news back to the front page.
