They are in the business of making money. Why wouldnt they hype Strasburg, LeBron, Heyward, etc, etc etc. They would be pretty stupid if they didnt. Stars are what drives ratings and they are in the ratings business.
I agree with FL that it's really obnoxious, but you're right about the reality, John. They have several different mediums to fill with "news", so they gotta do what they gotta do in order to get ratings.
Hell, they've spent the last week talking about how Dez Bryant wouldn't carry Roy Williams' shoulder pads, for chrissakes.
