Tonight will decide whether the Yankees or Mets won the first half of 2017 in the tabloids

Tomorrow, we will learn which baseball team "owned" New York City through the first half of 2017.

It's the covers of the tabloids  - the Post and Daily News - that George Steinbrenner so famously coveted during his reign of errors. Over the last six months, if you followed our daily tabs cover watch, you realized that bad news attracts the most ink. What else could explain the Knicks' third place finish?

Through injuries and underachievement, the Mets have endured a brutal six months. If they lose tonight, or do something horrible, they will win the First Half Tabloid Crown. But I believe the Yankees are poised to take the year.

And that, by the way, won't necessarily be good news.
